No chance with dodgy Gearbest 'couldn't care less' attitude to customer complaints and problems.

Yes, Gearbest isn't really the place to spend more than about fifty quid otherwise it gets a little like going down to the bookies with your money

Its £125 at Aliexpress, but I have no idea if their 'buyer protection ' works.
Can it be worse than ebay's? Probably.

It's cheap but the jumper 3 Pro offers quite a lot more for the extra outlay

It'll suffice for budget video playback I guess

It likely suffices for a college PC. The input is 5V which is useful for battery connections. Guess that is the norm now for non proprietary manufacturers.

Currys are doing HP deals at £150, similar spec.

2 1/2 lbs weight with 14" 1080p screen?

Sure I believe you! This has an alumium base shell which makes it light.

The processor is terrible. I have it on my tablet. Never again.

One of my pals used those cheap chinese made thingie and crashed in no time. He managed to get a second one (thanks to Gearbest) but that one went back in a black box as well!! This is a very proximal experience and I thought I should warn you. It is a great price for a punt if you have the time to deal with the customer care etc..

A Mac is included in your generalisation.

Would have been nice with a Cherry Trail SOC

Hi, can you tell me your experience? I'm starting to feel nervous now, as I await the Xiaomi phone I purchased through one of these deals here. It's been a month now. 😯

Start by going to your order history and checking the order tracking to see where it's up to. Most things I order from China come in about 10 days. A month is definitely slow.

Ha. You're joking, right? Every college kid has a Mac.

Just wanted to share my experience with gearbest... i've bought 5 or 6 phones ranging from £50 to £300. Dozens of cheaper items.Never had any problems. Customer service has been good on the occasions Ive had to contact them. Never had to pay any import charges.

That's really good, and I like it when things work out my favour too, but it's probably best not to tell everyone.

the cpu.....low performance

This is an old 2nd gen machine that's just poor in every way. It's like the Atom based netbooks from years ago. This is cheap for a reason. You think that you're saving money, but you're not really as you're wasting it on a machine that is basically junk.

COLD for me. Wasting money is not saving money.

It's the same processor found in the many cheap Windows 8.1 tablets from a few years ago ( such as the £40 Linx 7). Served a purpose then but not sure you'd want it now.
Edited by: "captainbeaky" 22nd Aug

the iGPU with the z3735F will struggle with full 1080p - i have it in one of my tablets and i have to set it to 720p to be usable tbh

Purchased something from Gearbest, a month or so ago, only just been dispatched today.

Contacted the chat team a week ago, and only then did they tell me that the item was out of stock and being replenished ... Deary me.

There are lighter 14" laptops out there, and those will have decent build quality and primum materials (like the Lonovo Carbon X1). This will be plastic that scratches and flexes. But very cheap device, rather spend a bit more for better quality though

Aliexpress are pretty terrible. I've dealt with customer service twice. Neither time made any sense, they didn't seem rational at all but on the second time in what was a basically open and shut case they still found in favour of the seller despite the goods being nothing like the description. Credit card company sorted it out. Basically it was fraud and illegal. Aliexpress, Gearbest, Ebay, Paypal are all pretty terrible I think but most credit card companies are decent I find. I don't think these companies really look at the evidence they just try to find a middle position even if one side is pretty much fraudulant and there are massive issues with their claims.

Might help if you researched the product or even read the posts.
And plastic is heavy!
Edited by: "LadyEleanor" 22nd Aug

my only concern with this deal is that it is from gearbest and from reading other people's experience with gearbest you shouldn't risk more than £20 with them at most?

Yeah, the Bay trail Atom 3735F in this is just rubbish. 2GB RAM in a Windows environment is awful as well in terms of performance. Even basic multitasking is slow.

Best to skip this laptop all together as people are just wasting their money. Better to go for an Apollo Lake / 6GB setup instead.

AliExpress is like Amazon Marketplace - you need to ensure that you buy from a reputable seller if you're buying more expensive items. I've used HK Goldway several times in the past and they've been excellent. But just like Amazon Marketplace I'd be wary about using known / untrusted sellers though.

worlds lightest 14"?


Not even close. Hell, there are 15.6" laptops alot lighter than this!

There is certainly no complaint about value, I would just worry that too often it would get frustrating with that processor.

Better of going for a refurb of a proper bit of kit ,like a HP Elitebook for £199.90.... microdream.co.uk/hp-…BwE31754927-vqb2Y.jpg

May suit some eg. old folk who never move their laptop and who need big text/icons on screen due to poor(er) eyesight but that machine is brick like, has a crappy screen, slow HDD, no USB3.0 and battery is likely to be shot (only 5 hours when new, so I hate to think what it's like after 7.5 years of use...) There are better deals to be had than that.

Have you not heard of Google?

eg. LG Gram 14 - 970g

tu9srvbirvvtmjmkyxnzzxrzlnbjbwfnlmnvbq00.g00.pcmag.com/g00…$/$

Asus B9440 14" - 1.05kg

zdnet.com/pro…ua/

Then there are others such as Onda, Thinkpad X1 etc that come in at around 1.1-1.2kg. There are also loads of 13.3" laptop that also come within that 1.1-1.2kg weight class.

This 4 year old spec Yepo is nowhere close to be being the World's Lightest 14" but you do win the prize for World's Greatest Exaggeration!

Heres the link to the popukar but overpriced Windows, no license box that has this same chipset and spec but without the power or screen.

hotukdeals.com/dea…747

Yes, you cant get much slower, but you cant find anything as portable in the same larger size.
It is adequate for running the basics like MS Office.

Fair enough. It is fairly obscure here. That beats the old XPS 14ultrabook which weighed in at the more usual 2KG.
The LG has a full HD screen which is good as that spec is not guaranteed on many high priced items. But at 1100%+ the price of this, 1080p has to be the bare minimum.
