great spec for the price - free delivery Screen - 12.3 Inch 2736x1824 Processor - Intel Core i5 7300u RAM - 8 GB Hard Drive - 256 GB Warranty - 1 year warranty
Got mine yesterday, the unit is in excellent condition and the keyboard looks new. Its been holding the charge perfectly and no dead pixels on the screen at all. So first impressions, very impressed.
Got mine today (using it now) Initial impressions are very good for the price. Screen = No marks / scratches at all, no dead pixels. As new. External = Some marks on the back, as expected if no extra case was used. No scratches / digs or anything obvious though. Keyboard = Keys all working, and functions seem fine. Keyboard lights up as expected. Keyboard outer case = A few marks from when it closed up and used as a cover. Again nothing serious. USB = Working as expected. Added a USB hub for ethernet, memory card reader HDMI etc. Bluetooth = Connected mouse and headphones, all seems fine. Windows updated, all looks good. Battery = No signs of buldging. Just got it to 100% charge, so will see how long it runs on battery for. Runs Netlfix and Youtube 4K without any issues. Fingers crossed the battery gives a decent run time. Should be able to put it through my wife's business, so 20% VAT to come back off the price as well. Thanks again @martinelsen (y)
Cheaped out on the batteries no doubt.
W11 requirements are "soft" - you can (and I have) install it on pretty much anything, you just have to do it from the ISO rather than Win Update. Everything is getting updates as normal. On my MS surface, it actually offered to upgrade through MS Update even despite supposed dealbreaker requirement shortfalls, just with a half hearted warning. Basically: MS has totally backed down on this to the point it exists in all but name. Which makes sense - it's more of a PR headache for MS with exploits against machines on W10 than on W11 with slightly deficient hardware. And don't forget, the only really significant security advance on W11 - enforced hardware TPM - isn't even legal in China, their biggest market. My main warning about W11 is that right now it's underbaked.

Yes, I do think it was deliberate actually, to try to get a hot deal. The website listing clearly stated: 'Refurbished Stonebook Pro N250JU Laptop 4GB RAM 120GB Windows 10'. And op listed it as: 'Stonebook Pro N250JU Laptop 4GB RAM 120GB Windows 10', copied and pasted but with the word refurbished omitted. If I'm doing him a disservice then I unreservedly apologise.
'deliberately' ? Why do you think his actions were deliberate, do you think he had something to gain from doing this? Maybe he made a mistake...
Added subsequently, presumably after op read my comment, I am able to read XD
Must be a really bad PSU in the one you got if it can't even power a 1030, they are 30w and the PCIe slot is designed to provide more than that.
Don’t buy if you intend to turn into a gaming machine, tried for my son. The board is custom to the case with USB ports front and back without headers on the board. Original psu isn’t enough to power a 1030. Then board takes a custom 10 pin power source. On the bright side , Dad for himself a new computer.
Perfect! A great upgrade for my parents computer for not a lot of money.
Room is not a problem there is plenty. It is little bit fiddly but can be done if you are careful and I pull the cable tie tight and cut the left over before closing it completely.
(y) That's a good idea, didn't know it has enough room for that
This is what I normally do before glue back together to be safe in case the tape fails.
yes, i am quite skilled in PC repairs but it is not worth the effort, cost a possible accident if he tape fails to hold the screen. I will most likely go by the external route and use the internal 1TB HDD as storage.
Don't want that to happen for sure. I was looking at this ifixit kits here: https://store.ifixit.co.uk/products/imac-intel-21-5-2012-2019-adhesive-strips-with-mic-notch Tripled the price with shipping charge compares to amazon's, Looks more promising tho. But the External TB3 Port soltuion is better cheaper and safer.

Excellent, thank you. I'm not clued up on system requirements. I checked it out on that website but it wouldn't let me put the graphics number thing in
A toaster can run Football Manager (lol) Jokes aside, this is plenty to run it though.
Will it play football manager?
Yes, but US is fairly close other than missing one key and having half-height enter key. You might find it's not worth it. The actual swap is quite simple. US format is one of the only keyboard format I'll tolerate for long-term use - I would never use an EU spec one.
Can the keyboards be easily swapped for UK units?

Thanks for posting and congratulations on your first hotukdeals thread (y)
Certainly yes, as it far exceeds the minimum requirements for them both. That’s part of the reason I have bought them. Bit annoying on the windows 11 thing but I’ll take the trade off using windows 10 since its predominantly going to be used by the kids anyway.
Would you be able to play games on this such as roblox or minecraft?
Not win 11 compatible and is quad core. still a good deal though.

Too many inches! 14 would have been nice.
More that they commission custom hardware, similar to consumer hardware, with extra features for schools. They never update the firmware , so they are always left on the initial bios, no updated CPUs or bug fixes. So yeah. Sucks a bit.
Is their hardware / software like Sony Vaio were which basically ruined the product on the very first update ? My friends SONY is stuck on Windows 8 - yes 8 ! as cant be updated due to SONY ruining the software and hardware by mixing their own stuff in with Windows.
