If all you want is a web browser then a Chromebook is fine. I had one for 2 years but after a while, it just drove me nuts because of the things it couldn't do.

Did you have to iron out the problems yourself or was it some sort of …Did you have to iron out the problems yourself or was it some sort of automatic updates, I only ask as I'm not very technical and wouldn't want to fix the issues myself.


Did all the tweaks myself. There are loads of guides online particularly on the techtablets.com message boards, but ultimately there's not that much to do. You just need to change a few Windows settings. If you can follow basic instructions whether online or through a YouTube video, it's pretty straightforward. Would be a 2min doddle for anyone who knows how to enable/disable stuff in Windows. I

In a nutshell, it's basically:
- disabling the MeiMengMeng.Win.Clients service (or deleting if you're paranoid)
- enabling Windows Updates in Windows 10 Settings
- disabling or deleting the trackpad blocker (not strictly necessary as it doesn't do anything anyway)

None of that is any harder than uninstalling the bloatware that comes on Acers, Dells, HPs etc.

In my case, I additionally installed an SSD, re-seated the WiFi antennae, and removed the magnets from the top of the lid. I did alot of BIOS settings experimentation as well eg. 10W power increase, but none of it is strictly necessary for normal folk.

Trackpad surface only feels rough initially. After several weeks of use, it seems to smooth down after you've been regularly rubbing your fingers across it!

Massive scale as well.EZB3 always has been arround £170. Stop making up figures.As for usage, it's all good now. Ironed everything out. Superb machine for less than £200. Only gripe is that for my heavy usage, I'd prefer a more powerful CPU. For casual users it will be fine though.

Those corporates avoiding tax is not good I agree but it's not tax …Those corporates avoiding tax is not good I agree but it's not tax evasion, this is. The issue with the touchpad is a well known problem and has been discussed at length on Hotukdeals too. In fact, look what a certain Pickard123 said about the touchpad back in September,"Trackpad pointer movement is okay but the sensitivity for two finger scroll and lower trackpad buttons is very poor. No way of adjusting the trackpad scrolling speed either or setting up scrolling zones on the left/right edge of the trackpad. Trackpad surface is a rough texture which I dislike. You wouldn't really want to use the trackpad for long periods anyway as your hand rests on the bottom edge of the laptop which is bevelled and therefore uncomfortable. I decided to use a mouse instead. "https://www.hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/31906363You weren't too happy about many aspects of this device, so what's changed since Picard? I trust you're using the same model? It was a bit disingenuous of you to state that I must be using an old model when you had similar problems when you bought the same model. Regards the price, I'll say it again, the normal price is about £194. Plus taxes, delivery charges, the cost of complying with EU safety standards and cost of providing a two year EU warranty I'd say the price creeps up to near £300 RRP.And please don't try and make out this tax evasion is not an issue, the practice is endemic and must be costing fortune, not forgetting that it creates an unfair playing field, making it harder for genuine companies to compete.


The effect is still the same - the UK taxpayer is deprived of £billions in revenue due to tax scamming by those rich corporates. It's on a massive scale as well that dwarfs anything involving this laptop.

EZB3 Pro always has been around £170. Stop making up figures.

As for usage, it's all good now. Ironed everything out. Superb machine for less than £200. Only gripe is that for my heavy usage, I'd prefer a more powerful CPU. For casual users it will be fine though.

A question for those of us that bought up 4 years when this first went … A question for those of us that bought up 4 years when this first went live, can we still buy a cheap copy of Personal and convert it to Home to extend for another year?



I believe you either have the choice of:
1) Cashing in Personal account credits against your existing Home sub at a rate of each 12 months Personal code gets you a 9 month extension on Home

2) Or you will have to let you Home level subscription expire fully, then add 1-4yrs of Personal Sub credits, then you can do same (1 month payment for Home then cancel auto renew) to convert all your Personal credit into same length Home credit for 1x monthly Home cost.
The problem with option 2 is I don't know what exactly happens to your OneDrive storage and any associated Home accounts at the point your 365 sub fully expires...I would presume your OneDrive goes into Read Only mode due to being over your storage limit...but it's *possible* MS could delete stuff?

If anyone has done 2nd method to take advantage of this loophole a 2nd time what happened to your account when in expired? And then how much did you have to put back once you'd re-subscribed?
