Unlike other website, if you have an issue you can send this to their EU warehouse. No need to ship it all the way to China.

Am I missing something - an 8th Gen quad core intel, good connections and reasonable spec, nice design, yet cold?

As a laptop for this money, this is a fantastic deal.
If it were on Amazon UK for this, it'd be super hot.
However, people dont like the cheap Chinese importers reliability, and also the problems with warranty etc.
Also, they typically ship with (only) Chinese Windows 10 installed, so you need to be tech literate (and possibly need to buy new English Windows but dont quote me) to sort this out.
Still, hot from me.

Edit: And for context, it's currently £664.79 at Gearbest

chinese windows is a problem - have to add the cost of a new os

Heat from me, great looking laptop and reviews are pretty good too. Also for completeness, this laptop has a second NVMe slot in case you run out of space. The only issue for me would be the import costs

Warrant y puts most people off, and understandably.
Chinese language version can be sorted easily enough, for free, legitimately via the windows USB installer, but admittedly not for those who want to unbox, switch on and start working on it. Great deal in my view.

I dont know much about the reseller though.

Hot from my btw.

I also for to mention but it’s definitely worth waiting for 8th Gen Intel CPU, this one is 40% faster than the previous gen equivalent, it’s worth having a look at reviews


Also not sure if it will work but there is 10.5% on Topcashback
Edited by: "fmo" 25th Nov

I've taken the plunge.
With Topcashback (assuming it tracks ok) it is a lot of Laptop for <£600.
Better than any BF deal i've seen IMO.

I ordered on Thursday and TCB tracked at around £59 as I used discount codes.
Still hasn't been shipped despite indicating a 24 hour processing time.

Possible high import tax + handling fees and no warranty (or send to China warranty) probably prevents it going hot.

Pay £16.45 extra and any import fees are refunded. Warranty is included and if you did need to send it back, you send it to their warehouse in the EU
Majority of people aren't charged anyway.

Not so sure why this is cold. This laptop has got hot every time it has been posted previously at a higher price

Yes definitely 8th gen, so 4 core and 8 threads (with hyperthreading), the performance boost is definitely worth it

Apparently you can download the windows media creation tool to update Windows, install with English then update and it will recognise the existing installed key.

I’ve just ordered so will tell you how it goes!

I read the same although apparently you need to link your online Microsoft account before reformatting to store the key, and then re-login to Microsoft account to restore the activation once you've installed the English OS.

I think that is when doing a fresh install and is something like a ‘digital account’ key tied to you MS account. This seems a bit different as it does an upgrade rather than fresh install. I’ve done the fresh install, but not the upgrade, so not 100%. Will let you know how it goes when it arrives!

The key is installed in Bios. Just make sure that when you use the media creation tool, you download the single language version, as this is what the license is for.

Just posting to let those who ordered and are eager to get their hands on the laptop know that mine was shipped 3 days after purchase after I raised a ticket - they'd previously quoted a shipping date of 'before 26/12/2017' despite stating a handling time of 24 hours!

Current price as 27/11/17 is £602.05 and including topcashback's potential 10.5% for online purchases the total cost after cashback is £538.83.

Trust pilot ratings from previous UK customers of lightinthebox are completely abysmal - and there are many.

Cancelled order after reviewing Trustpilot customer reviews about Lightinthebox

"Optional; £16.45 insurance against any import duty fees."
Am I missing something? It's charging £55 for me. I'd take the plunge if it was around £16 like in the OP.32628049-z0heX.jpg

Just checked myself and unfortunately it looks like this was a Black Friday offer. The price is indeed now showing at £55

Has anyone received it yet?

Quick update:
Before reinstalling windows, activate Office 16 and link it to your live account. This will allow you to use it after you reinstall windows!

You might get a region error when activating Office initially but Microsoft support can unlock the region on the online customer support chat window.

Well mine arrived fine, refund from the duty / import all went fine too. They actually raised a ticket for me beforehand.
Install Windows Home fresh install. I tried single language language but it wouldnt activate and said it should be windwos 10 home. All activated fine for me.

Exceptional notebook for the money. Impecable customer service too, really straightforward. Took about a 8 days from ordering to it being in my hand.
I would recommend.

Looks like this is now down to £595.53 with free shipping. Cheaper than BF.
I was going to post a new deal but apparantley merchant is banned. Guess they have stopped paying the site or something?
I would contact the mods, but they havent responded to previous queries so won't waste my time. This may help someone though.
