A "deal" that isn't posted isn't a deal and when no information is given as to what or where this "deal" was, it's little more than trolling. And, as with financial products, past performance is no indicator of future performance. In other words, lightning strikes in the same place over and over again. Deals aren't as predictable.
at the same time, if there was a deal a near few days ago that provided better, it doesn’t hurt for this poster to at least highlight the fact, that recently X item was available, it’s likely something similar could be available again soon.
Looks like switching from Windows 10 S to regular Windows is now free for everyone since Win 10 April update: eg, https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/03/switching-from-windows-10-s-to-regular-windows-will-be-free-for-everyone/
Well spotted this is the real deal breaker here, not a full usable copy of windows, Yuk ! Windows S = windows sh*t
Looked at these myself but it seems to be running Windows 10 S which means you cant install normal "non-store" apps on it, wont affect everyone but may stop you installing some key apps you may use.
Hi no I haven't had any issues with mine. Have you tried reinstalling the driver? I think it's no longer available from Lenovo so I don't think you could get a replacement so probably best to try fix it yourself first
Hi there, you didn't happen to have any issues with your touchpad did you? I may have just pulled a poor unit. The laptop itself though, as you say, is gorgeous.
For that money I'd be going for an 8th gen processor
I got the 710s on a previous deal. The battery is not great on that. This machine might be better
Yeah that’s the one, it’s a v good game machine. It can do AC Origins on high nicely, which is all I really need. It’s small things that add together though like discovering the Dolby atmos when I put on Netflix, the fingerprint reader is flawless and the face the screen lays down flat so I can prop it up like a tablet in a raised laptop stand. I have used a lot of laptops but this machine deffo the best.
And great hardware video playback support for most formats using the HD 500 GPU
Looks ok for surfing (y) 🏼
Now reduced to £169.98
Nice one, thanx. :-)
Not a chance, what you will get is people buying this then try some serious 4K video editing, they will say windows it pants and go out buy a £1000 mac and say how much better it is than windows. Thats pretty much how the story went for most people.
And a 2.4” smaller display. It’s basically another machine.
Ha you are probably right! Mine is on windows 8.1 and I have turned off auto updates though recently did 500 updates in one go as was trying to see if could get netflix downloads to work on windows 8.1 (still seems to be Windows 10 only)
I had a tablet/ laptop 2in1 with the slightly more powerful Celeron n3450. I only used it for light web browsing which it could just about handle but was often rendered totally unusable by any kind of Windows update running in the background. Probably fine in a Chromebook but for running Windows I would look to spending a little more for something slightly more powerful.
Ah, thanks did not realise there's a new version of spin 1 with 1080 screen. Bit pricey atm. This is the last version which has 720p, still a decent IPS. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/acer-spin-1-116-2-in-1-laptop-4gb-64gb-touchscreen-ips-gorilla-glass-1-year-office-365-1tb-onedrive-cloud-storage-plus-10-gift-voucher-21599-using-code-argos-ebay-2887486
From my earlier links, this is 1080 resolution and 11.6"... https://uk-store.acer.com/spin-1-convertible-notebook-sp111-32n-silver-1, unless Acer have their own specs wrong ( which I guess is possible).
No. Only the Acer spin 1 - 13 inch version has 1080p resolution. and is very rare, was on ebay around £250 new, think it's discontinued now. Excellent laptop, very high quality screen.
I've run one of these for a year and it's been ok, very lite, quiet, ie no fans. I like the way the screen extends flat for when I'm lying down. Windows Fall update failed (due to no HD space) but kept trying each time on boot, which slowed it down extremely. It required a fresh install, which was a pain, then with the free office install and extra updates after, it's reached full again. Not very future proof. Paid about £140 for it a while back.
Ah I see. 32GB version with the 768p resolution 64GB version with the 1080p resolution. It makes sense. Shame it's not the AO one. I agree with the others that updates size nowadays need 64GB.
Microsoft are managed by committee upon committee. Alot of the stuff they do makes no sense and they end up making a pig's ear of it. This is really no different to Zune, Windows phone, Surface RT etc.
I mean, I understand that bit but surely they know that their App Store blows, compared to iOS or Android. I don’t think you can even get browsers in there and for a while media players were hard to come by.
They're trying to drive traffic to the Microsoft App Store. The problem is that this is not the way to do it. The store is so limited that people will switch away from 10S almost instantly, and once they do that, they can't switch back which will just kill10S. What they should do is have some sort of dual boot system where 10S is some ultra light, ultra stable, ultra fast, stripped down sandboxed version of Windows (a bit like ChromeOS). That way people whose computer usage is 99% browser, email and basic videos/music will probably use it.
yes, I got a 11" ideapad 100s with 2GB RAM /32GB eMMC and 1yr M$ Office included for £100 2 years back, so this seems really overpriced for what it is.
Yeh need to check easy to find out on your link. I've just upgraded an ideapad 110s as it only came with 32gb, nowhere near big enough for window 10 and all others stuff. Really easy to do I just followed advice on forums. Now have 90gb free on new drive and 32gb free as a backup.
Heat from me, nice looking machine rather than just plain silver. Keyboard is backlit too. Nice.
Only 128gb storage!
It is also a little on the heavy side at 1.7kg. but it is a decent spec for £500
Intel Core i5-7200U Dual Core (2.5GHz, 3MB Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Up To 3.1GHz)
Nice Machine / price, but be aware this is a 7th generation (or less..?..!) CPU...
I have been waiting for the model above this (512gb i7) to restock for a while now & the whole model has been removed from the site. Idk if I should carry on waiting for this or just wait for the new XPS's to release
Thanks OP, I didn’t realise this has Dolby Atmos sound until I fired it up. Incredible for film watching
Nice deal, but OOS now.
Really looking for a portable laptop for photo editing, occasional games and video editing and this seems to fit the bill. Does anyone have any advice to exclude this at all? Is it a good price for the specs? Thanks for any help guys.
Ah I see, thanks for that. I'm considering buying this but haven't had a lenovo before. Do you have any feedback from your Yoga?
It wasn't a stupid question but keep telling yourself that with your inflated ego. Shouldn't of acted like one then.
Why should I tolerate stupid questions though and your ad hominem directed at me? I am perfectly within my right to point out how stupid a question is and treat it with disdain. Go away. Your posts will be reported for language.
Yep a total dick. If you get that worked up over this then then wouldn't want be our mate. Slightest thing and you turn into a total dick.
So I'll repeat, your question to me was essentially does it really matter if you can have a bunch more performance for the same money or less? I'll leave that there up to the reader what they think of that question and why I should give you the time of day on this website.
You was telling people reasons as to avoid this laptop and I was given reasons as to why they don't have to depend on what they're doing with it. You are acting like a dick.
Well, there are some really nice, small desktop cases which you can fit a very powerful rig into :)
Yes, I understand there are many advantages having a desktop of some description rather than a laptop but for me there are some space issues and I quite like the portability. That said, if I could find something small and powerful, with the number of ports these laptops have I could opt for that as I already have two other laptops. However, they are both a bit old and in no way capable of gaming but they are well adequate for all my general needs. Some kind of midi is an option but it would have to be small and whilst I have largely kept abreast with laptops, I haven't had a desktop for over a decade and have no idea what's available, what is good and where to get it - although Amazon service is indeed good, as you say.
Well, my only advice to you is, if you buy, buy direct from Amazon due to their return policy & warranty. Secondly, do you NEED a laptop? As in, would a pc not suit your needs? You get a lot more for your money if it's for probability I understand just curious
I've been looking at these two and am puzzling over the best option. I'm looking at a 17" preferably, so an ASUS GL7xx model is the current prime option - it's exactly the same spec as that Cyberpower. The quandary is whether the Cyberpower is a better option in terms of cooling and possibly longevity. The ASUS also has a terrific screen and I just don't know about the Cyberpower. I know it's IPS but I can't find out anything really about how that translates into real world experience.
I use it for everything, but gaming is the main reason for wanting these particular specs
I do? When have I said that...
Brilliant thank you, I just need something for coursework and basic things really so it should be OK for that, thanks again
depends what you need, it's a very good laptop for general use ,browsing/ms office apps, specially if you replace the hard drive with an SSD , or are are patient :P The SSD speed's up the loading for the operating system and apps but it's still a good laptop without it. I think they didn't add the VAT , it's £366 with VAT after I've refreshed the page , still a great price
Thanks for that link, I think it's down to £305 now if I'm looking at the correct one.. Is it a decent laptop? I'm clueless with these things and every time I think I've found a decent one the comments on hukd put me off lol
expired, back at £513 now I bought a dell Inspiron 15 - 5570 for my wife, £370 , i5-8250U , 8Gb RAM, 1TB HDD (will clone and swap with an SSD) from Dell Outlet: http://outlet.euro.dell.com/Online/InventorySearch.aspx?brandId=7&c=uk&cs=ukdfh1&AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1
Not being well up on tech, which of these is best deal ? http://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=112487650655&category=177&pm=1&ds=0&t=1522420202000&ver=0
For value is alright. I will check for that software to see why is a bit slow..but for 190£ for me..can't complain to much..especially when personally I open 7-10 tabs in the same window:)))
Always worth looking in Task Manager to see how much memory is in use and by what. And it's almost certain that there's a load of bloatware installed by Lenovo. Clean install of Windows 10 getting rid of all the junk (including any recovery partition) will almost certainly improve performance. It's never going to be spectacular or good enough for the too big, too heavy, poor resolution etc etc brigade, that troll this site, but perfectly adequate for many.
When ebay had 20%off ..purchased this- 240 final price..ao listed wrong display so texted them..offered50£back so 190..but still with ssd in it ..slow, slow..deffo need more memory too 8gb
Ebuyer sell it in red if you prefer.... https://www.ebuyer.com/825569-lenovo-ideapad-310-15-laptop-red-80sm01mbuk?mkwid=s_dm&pcrid=250357049981&pkw=&pmt=&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuv6zqLyv2gIVhpPtCh1kqArAEAQYASABEgJv6vD_BwE
too slow for video editing mate especially 4k.
Don't get me wrong it's a splendid deal overall !
It has a i3 7100 which I think is better (:I
At half the price? :/
Recently Currys were selling a similar Lenovo model with an i3-7100 cpu, 128GB SSD and Full HD screen for £330 (now advertised at £399). A good machine at that price (and only slightly more than this deal). But I still had my doubts. Partly because Windows 10 is difficult. And also because I was wanting the machine for an older person - I was worried the screen wasn't large enough. The Full HD Lenovo used some scaling (150%), and menus were still difficult to read. The display however was nice. Sometimes the displays are better quality on the Full HD models as they use an IPS panel instead of a TN one (but you have to dig around in the spec to confirm this). It's worth visiting the machine if you can. The whole home Intel line of processors appears to be plagued with a couple of faults, either broken hyper-threading or the recent meltdown/spectre bug. Associated fixes impact performance. I'd be tempted to hang on until the next generation of processors come along. It's a colossal cock up. They should be giving these away.
Good deal for £320. The main thing is it'll be quite fast with the SSD. Computer screen resolution is overrated if you're just browsing, email and doing small office stuff.
Mines not cancelled. Collecting tomorrow morning :)
Sorry if I mis-read your meaning, but the use of "honour" , to me, infers JL were obliged to sell at that price when they clearly weren't.
I didn't realise the JL laptop was cancelled - obviously disappointing for those that ordered it, but still feel slightly relieved after ordering a laptop similar to this posting, before seeing the John Lewis one posted this morning.
I complained. Got money credited to an account. £35 though. No money taken from my account at any point
Who did you complain to Raj?
Also received my PayPal refund yesterday :D
Got my PayPal refund yesterday
Did Hermes deliver your laptop?
Mine came yesterday. Updates took a little while but it's a great machine once it got going. I think it must've a misprice by Amazon. Chuffed to bits.
Delivered today. Took a little time to get going (3GB of Windows updates to download then setup), but very happy with it.
Same, hoping it's worth it.
Mine is now due tomorrow, but on the website the model still showing as unavailable. I wonder if this was a pricing error and they want to deliver to all those who got in at the old price, before they re-list at a new higher price.
Agreed. Took me lots of chasing and them 3 months to replace the legs of a new £3,000 corner sofa I purchased from them. They got the colour of the legs wrong...all it took was for a guy to come over and change the legs. He was there for 30 minutes. Should have been done more efficiently.
I did call like 5-6 times in the 2 weeks, technical team, customer services escallated to complains team, they don't give 2 s¬its they made my wife take a day off for nothing once, than LG's local supplier did the same ("sorry mate we can't get to you today"). now today I have to jump through hoops and see if I can get off work early and see the engineer. Spoke with JL 5-6 times, LG ~3 times, LG's local supplier about 5-6 times, it's not that I didn't try to sort it out. nearly £2000 screen sitting for 2 weeks now, 3-4 months old. Got accidental cover on it also, so if they drag it more and don't fix/replace/ refun it in one peace I'll have to send it to them in multiple peaces to replace. I'm at the point where I don't care anymore I just really want my money back and never wanna hear of JL EVER again. I'm saying JL are bad because they clearly don't care and handled this really bad (1 day off waste for my wife). Doing some reading I see I'm not alone, Amazon are actually top now in customer service rankings, I wish I got it from Amazon and not them. JL's amazing customer service is a mith now, along with unicorns dancing on rainbows, maybe it was once but it isn't anymore.
Did you actually try calling customer services? Nothing happens if you don't tell them the problem.
Sorry op, John Lewis = cold, contrary to popular belief their customer service is utter crap, got a 55" Oled TV sitting like a peace a furniture for 2 weeks now, avoid them
This was £470 in Curry's a couple of months ago I believe
Yes but I didn’t , I said it today 😜
You could say that anytime.
