School laptop recommendation

Found 19th Oct 2017
Looking for a 10-12 inch lightweight laptop or netbook for my son at school. Needs to be light, Win 7 or 10, usual Office apps plus USB connectivity for controlling devices

He currently has an ex-corporate 12" Thinkpad X230 at home that has done good service for several years. That is too bulky for day to day carting around between classrooms sadly . I have stripped and repaired it several times so a 2nd user one would be fine.

Been looking at either a lightweight 2nd hand laptop with good availability of bits or a new 2 in 1 device - something like the recent Linx 12x64 would probably be fine but not the Linx given poor reviews elsewhere. Happy to use Aliexpress etc.

Budget up to £350 - thoughts please but no Chromebooks or 14" + laptops. Ta.

Lenovo ThinkPad X250? Could definately get one with an i5, 8gb ram and an ssd for about that price.…Hz-

It's 20mm thick instead of 26mm compared to x230, but weight is still the same. Most 2in1s are about the same weight (just over 1kg) but only 10mm thick.
