But would not recommend because:-the screen presses the keyboard, so whenever i close the laptop lid, something is pressed and it is annoying to revert it again and again. Doesn’t last long, i am wondering how worse it is going to be in the future. -i dont know what the material is made of, but it is very easy end up with permanent finger marks around your laptop.
Fantastic power for a budget machine. . Very good laptop for many different purposes. I bought this to go to uni with. I’m going to be using this as my secondary machine for the train and portability so i didn’t require it to be very powerful. It can run adobe photoshop and premiere pro surprisingly well. I haven’t had any crashes or bad response times using either. One thing i will say is that this laptop comes with a lot of bloatware. -_- you will need to go through and uninstall this and then create a new restore point from there otherwise if you ever do a system restore, it will just bring all of that bloatware back. It can be quite slow on initial boot, with the disk drive maxing out at 95%-100%, but this quickly dies down after about 5 minutes. This will most likely be due to avast bootup scan and other startup processes.
Versatility and performance at a reasonable price. . This met all my expectations as i had done thorough research before i ordered it. I was attracted by the 8gb ram and 1 tb hard disk, more than i need as my computer usage is limited to internet surfing, processing photos and videos, and writing, but gives me plenty of space for updating relevant software. The screen definition could better, but is it worth spending a lot more for only marginal benefit as i am not the slightest bit interested in gaming and mostly watch films on a large hd tv. Contemplated a tablet but as this touchscreen model, which works well and has an integral fold away keyboard, rather than having to fiddle about with a separate one, and converts from laptop pc to tablet mode when required, not really necessary and offers more flexibility. If you want the roll of royce computers, go ahead, spend 2000 quid or more, i could if i wanted to. But if you’re not absurdly demanding, want all round value for money, reasonable portability and convenience, this isn’t a bad option in my view.
Awesome netbook/laptop would be 5 stars except for the trackpad – its a little vague, slow to respond to the left/right click buttons and very springy within the deck of the laptop. All solved with a wireless mouse though. Love the way it converts from laptop to tablet, screen and sound are excellent. No problems with the touch screen works in all options. Ensure you get the i-core processor version. Finally don’t be put of by it being a 14 inch laptop and not a 15. 6 inch (which you can get in yoga) as this is perfect if you travel alot due to lightweight and relitivly thin. Like the fact its white too. Good: processor, screen, sound, versatility, size and weight.
Reasonable for the price, but i would not recommend. . Update after 2 months: since updating to windows 10, performance is much improved and has not frozen since. The upgrade wiped out the external media drivers so i couldn’t connect devices or sd card, but easily fixed. Much happier now ;-)it’s ok, but so slow and in 2 weeks of use has frozen twice. I am not even pushing it hard, just a few browser screens open and maybe word. It does boot up quickly though. I may purchase some more ram and see if that helps, which is £28. Not really convinced by the tablet mode. It works ok, but think this is a good gimmick at best and i’ll be using it as a standard laptop most of the time. Don’t buy just because it is a hybrid tablet / laptop.
