Posted 14th Nov 2021
I hope this is okay to ask. My daughter wants a tablet/laptop to play roblox on (royal high mainly)
We currently have a Samsung tab A 2019 and an older lenovo along with a chromebook None allow her to play and are so laggy it constantly crashes and goes off.

Problem is I only have around £180-£200 budget. I dont mind refurbished/used from somewhere with a warranty.

Please can anyone advise? I really dont understand what I need to be looking for.

Thank you

    I have bought mobile phones from Game before and they also sell tablets. They come with a 2 year warranty and I have never had an issue with them. They are refurb or second hand ones.

    I’d recommend a laptop which would cope better with games than a tablet, cex offer 24months warranty but they are inflated compared to eBay

    System hardware requirements
    Graphics Card: On PC/Windows, the Roblox application requires DirectX 10 or higher feature level support. For the best performance we recommend either a computer less than 5 years old with a dedicated video card, or a laptop less than 3 years old with an integrated video card.
    Processor: Roblox recommends you have a recent processor (2005+) with a clock speed of 1.6 Ghz or better. There have been some issues with older AMD processors.
    RAM or Memory: Roblox recommends you have at least 1 GB of memory on Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10
    Storage Space: Roblox recommends you have at least 20 Mb of system storage space to install Roblox.

    Oh wow its a minefield. I have no idea.

    So would a lenovo P11 work? Not the pro.
    Or the new amazon HD10? HD10 plus I think it is?

    I think you’d be better off buying an Xbox series S, it’s only slightly over your budget and you can connect it to a tv.

    xbox.com/en-GB/games/roblox

    Most of the second hand laptops in your budget won’t run it at all or very well, nor will the PC’s either. So the Xbox would be a good options as you can always easily sell it if she loses interest in gaming or she can play other games too on it.

    To somewhat echo hotukscams, you won't get much worth buying for <£200, you would be better off getting a games console like a Series S. There is a subscription service on Xbox called Game Pass - that allows you to stream games to any laptop or android device (phones and tablets). This means the console will be doing all the hard work, but with your laptop/tablet displaying the game, that will negate any lag issues

    We do have games consoles but you can't chat on roblox on the xbox.

    I feel so stuck. I have to buy 2 so can't really go over £200 each.
    Thank you for all your help

    Roblox on xbox supports live party chat. You can voice chat with a headset. I'm assuming their friends play on PC, and as such, they can't chat with them through xbox, is that the issue?

    From what I can see you can chat with other Xbox players but not with anyone else

    I really know very little about Roblox since I don't play it. But some light googling says this tablet plays it without issue - and it's a preety decent spec tablet for the money

    Here's a video of someone playing a roblox game on it. No visible lag

    No problem. If their friends play on phone/tablet, I suppose it makes sense if they do too. The only other option for around £200 is a chromebook, if they would prefer a mouse and keyboard to play.

    I know nothing about Roblox but this tablet is in your max budget and is quite powerful for the Money £199.99, 2.3Ghz Octa core processor with 4Gb Ram & 64Gb Storage. Looking at the Q&A's, a question was asked if it will play Roblox and the answer from the Argos Rep was that it would. Have included the link so you can check for yourself. Hope this helps

    The P11 plus I linked is fairly significantly better than the M10 for only £17 more. That's also the standard price for the M10, while the P11 plus is discounted to £217 as part of black Friday deals.

    Here's a side by side comparison

    For some reason I can't seen to buy that p11 plus? It says I can't create an account on there to buy

    A local shop has a normal p11 in for £175 which is why I included it in my original post

    Thank you will look at those links to.

    Sorry. The thread actually links you to a student portal, my bad. Here's a link to the Lenovo website directly, and it's actually cheaper now at £212
