​if your mobo has an m2 slot then you can fit an m2 drive! - you might need to change the boot preference if you leave the old Sata drive connected.

I bought this for my laptop (which like many laptops doesn't have an m2 slot).

I have this exact netbook and this is really not what you need. It is old and very slow. Windows was never any good on it and upgrading it to 2GB doesn't make it much better. It's better with a more lightweight Linux OS installed, but still pretty painful.

If not, use some WD40 on a tough paper kitchen towel to clean any glue residue, it works well for that, then wipe off the slightly oily residue of the WD40, first with any dry part of the paper towel, then with some isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol - not surgical spirit though, as that usually has castor oil, so leaves an oily residue of its own) on another kitchen towel - or if you can't find any pure isopropyl alcohol to buy (it's a useful solution to have around for cleaning laser lenses of various devices, actual lenses on cameras and other glass parts where you can't have water or water residue) then use a tiny bit of washing up liquid on a cotton bud (or your fingertip) and wipe it off with a thoroughly wrung out cloth or yet another paper towel (so moist, but obviously not dripping with water at all).

I'd rather get a refurb ThinkPad X220 like the one I'm using now. 2nd gen i5 which beats the 4200U for performance, upgradable, excellent keyboard, and basically indestructible. I use it for school work (year 10) and it's much better than this (which is essentially a tablet's components stuffed in a laptop).
The laptop posted will become infuriating to use, honestly. Get something a bit more powerful - I recommend going refurbished. The only thing you'll miss out on is Office, but there is plenty of free alternatives including the Office Mobile apps on the Windows store. Otherwise just spend a bit more and get an i3 laptop for around £250. It'll be worth it in the long run.

They were so tempting.The stock went very quickly. The next day I check, the price was not so good, it may be seller deliberately increased price or all good ones are gone.If you need a laptop and do not mind refurb, and close to black Friday or Christmas, it does not hurt to check the seller out at those days. You might get yourself a very good deal.



If I recall (as I was also after one at the time) there was excess stock of inspirons and business range. The one I was after went very quickly so passed in the end, but I don't remember price being increased. Some identical models were cheaper than others because of physical defects like large scratches or random missing bezel

For under £50 (if you order two) - they are a steal
OP ignore all these so called experts and hear sayers. To many techo-snobs these days.

I have in front of me an Acer Aspire One netbook, with a single core, single thread 1.7ghz CPU manufacture date 2010\05\22. I upgraded the ram to 4gb for £5 and a cheapo SSD installed another £15, both sourced from fleabay. Now upgraded to Windows 10.

It boots to Windows 10 in under 12 seconds (from cold, not sleep), and runs all the simple apps, browsing, media, emails fine. It struggles with more than a few multiple tasks, but with the SSD, just close them and re-open them, its nearly instant. It will never set the world on fire, but it is a perfectly usable machine.

Regards
Flea
Have some heat :-) thanks for sharing

Believe me, when assembling your netbook if you fail to connect the cooling fan up you will have overheating problems and no online seller will give you a refund whether you used paypal, Bitcoin or monopoly money.

I saw the deal for lenovo 700 11.6 inch here 464.99 pounds insted of 499 pounds using the code LENVC7 when I click the deal , I was diverted to Lenovo web site and they have their eCode . Going to the shopping basket the price is 499 pounds.
kindly explain this ? please and how to order this item with price tag 464.99 pounds?
Got mine. It's rather nice. It doesn't however have a backlit keyboard. Lenovo have now added "(Optional)" onto the product page - an admission of their previously poor advertising I do believe.. Lets see if I can get a few more quid off...
"No, there's no backlit keyboard... what do you expect for something this price and this slim?"

Lol - I expect it if they say they've included it - otherwise I wouldn't have expected it...
Spoke to the sales team, the website listing is the 'up to' list of features, but this specific version does not have that feature. Lol that's a new one for me, kinda misleading...
Anyway I asked if there were any other missing features, none apparently. Still tempted, but backlit keys would have been great for this one.
I've had one of these for a few weeks. They are excellent. I paid £540 for it and still think it's a bargain.

No, there's no backlit keyboard... what do you expect for something this price and this slim?

Hot? I'm using it right now and have been for an hour. As per usual, it's slightly above room temperature. I've coded on it for hours, I've watched a film on it and I've even tried to game on it for a couple of hours (Hearthstone was a bit choppy, but still far faster than my mate's last gen Core M).

I've never had it crash and it's always been plenty fast enough. Unless I'm really loading it, it feels just as snappy as my Core i7 desktop. The only problem I've had is the touch pad doesn't register two-finger-dabs for a right click without a 30 second Registry change... it's a common Lenovo/Synaptics issue.

Only problem now is that it has forgotten all my passwords, but even worse it doesn't save them any more even though it asks me. Any ideas anyone?


It's a Chromebook so you just log into your google account on chrome so only one password to remember.

I sometimes randomly manage to get it charging. I'll bear this in mind. It has about 20 mins left just now but I'd like to be able to use it over Christmas (and longer if there's a solution!). I have a feeling they asked me to try this on the phone to HP though and it didn't work, might not have been this exactly though so I'm certainly going to try it.

So refresh, power and have it all plugged in first and ready to charge? Light should come on when I do this? How odd. I wonder how they found this solution! I really like it, just a shame about the charging problem. A new charger has fixed the problem, but they're working for less and less time now!

Looking at this because I think I'm going to have to replace my HP … Looking at this because I think I'm going to have to replace my HP Chromebook 11, as I'm having charging problems with it again. They sent me a new charger and it worked for a while but it has just gone out of warranty and the charger has gone on the blink again. Bought a new one and it's not working very well already. Looks like a common fault. Hopefully other brands don't have this fault. It's a micro usb.


Try and do a Hard Reboot with it plugged in -- Hold down the refresh button (over the 4) and the Power Button for 4 seconds, and release, does the charge light now come on and it begins charging? Used to have to do that with mine every few months or so i don't have it anymore but i think it was just this model that suffered from the issue due to the introduction of micro usb for charging a laptop for the first time.
