Product Description

Style Name: Celeron B830

Product Description

Windows 8

Sculpt Touch Mouse
Windows Reimagined

Because Windows 8 can run on low-power CPUs, you can work much longer on a single charge. That means you can stay connected so your PC is ready when you are. Battery life is longer and connections are stronger so you’ll be able to find a device to suit you for work or play.

Comfort and portability

  • Windows 8 Live Tiles provide real-time updates from your Facebook, Twitter and email accounts

  • Integrate your online favourites, such as Facebook, Hotmail and Flickr, with content from your PC, such as photos and contacts.

  • Browse faster with Internet Explorer

  • Stay safer with Windows Defender

  • With thousands of apps to choose from, there's something for everyone. Once you buy an app from the Windows Store, it's yours to use on up to five Windows PCs or tablets.

  • Plus Mail, Photos, SkyDriver and more built-in

Box Contains

I bought this after reading the reviews left and thought it was going to be awful. All I needed was a cheap laptop as we no longer really use our desktop for much. I can safely say the laptop surprised me.

So far it hasn't had a problem running any of the tasks I need and it boots up really quickly. It runs cool so is great for sitting on the sofa with this on your lap. I also found the track pad a revelation. All the work laptops I have used (with Win XP) have been only a margin better than awful. This actually works and all the gesture stuff really makes navigation around Windows 8 easy. I also found Windows 8 itself to be really good as well.

I found the build really good and love the low weight of the device. It does however get covered in finger prints. It also does have poor viewing angles but the screen isn't bad when you do have it at the right angle.

Overall for a laptop under £280 this is a great little machine. Really happy with it!!

Style Name: Pentium B980
Firstly I will just mention that I got this with windows 7 on, not 8 (luckily), so I won't be commenting on that aspect. Having a powerful gaming desktop I am used to blazingly fast speeds, however when I use this I don't get at all irritated with slow/sutteryness, since I manage to do everything that I want including multi-tasking between things quickly. For general computing tasks 2.4ghz dual core and 4gb ram is plenty of power to do things quickly, and for £250 it really is rather impressive for the price, I remember when even the lowest end laptops cost well in excess of £250.

Quality wise this is also very good,the build quality is surprisingly good, and it's nice that some features that are often left out on lower end laptops are included, such as USB3 and HDMI, although as expected at this price there is some compromise. However, this is only slight, the touchpad I actually don't have any complaints about and the multi touch command are surprisingly functional. The keyboard is mostly good except that I find the space bar needs to be pressed pretty firmly in order for it to be recognised. At first I was having lots of words joined together because my touch wasn't detected, however now I have adapted and learnt to press it more firmly, so it isn't a big issue. Battery life is also good for the price, around 5 hours with battery saving mode on and brightness turned down, and on high performance mode you still get a good two and a half or so. A couple of other slight annoyances is the amount of bloatware that this came with, but if you go into msconfig it is easy to trim the start up programs down, or just uninstall the software (it is mostly junk). Secondly, as others have mentioned it is quite easy to get fingerprints on the laptop.

I bought this laptop after a nightmare trying to find a machine which didn't come with a host of imperfections - this was well priced and seemed to offer a good size/spec combination. So far, so good. It seems snappy and has no problem running multiple apps on 2 screens. It definitely has an ultrabook look to it and the 14" display is perfect for general use - especially if using a second monitor and using the laptop as a second screen. The laptop is well made and I have no spacebar issues as others have reported. A few points that may help others...

Touchpad - it's not great but does work ok. I connected a Logitech M187 mouse instead.

Hard drive - the laptop has a WD drive in it with APM - this makes the drive spin down every few seconds with an annoying clicking sound. Download 'CrystalDiskInfo' and disable the APM.

Distortion through the headphones - go into device manager and uninstall the audio driver. Restart and let windows install its own driver - problem solved.

Bizarre 'morse code' noise when running some Metro apps - no idea what causes this, but using web based apps is better anyway.

Windows 8 - download 'Start 8' and put the start button back - now works like a fast version of Windows 7. Excellent.

For the price this is a very decent and good looking laptop, very happy with my purchase despite a few niggles!

I bought this to go on deployment with. I dropped it, accidentally kicked it a few times but it still ran smooth. Very quick little laptop that is very good value for money. You get what you pay for, and in this case it will be a decent laptop although I wouldn't suggest you get it for gaming.

First of all, this laptop is not terrible in any way but it's also not very good.
Everything on the laptop is made out of (pretty flimsy) plastic and it has a cheap
feel to it. The keyboard is spongy and if you are used to a quality keyboard it's
not a very pleasant experience typing on it. The trackpad works OK, better than
the keyboard even though I did experience some twitching pointer motion.
If you are planning to use it a lot you might want to get a mouse for it (just
remember that this laptop does not come with Bluetooth).

The display is OK and battery life is not bad either. It's pretty light (Yay for plastic!)

If your budget is limited then this laptop is a decent choice and you're just
looking to do some light productivity work (and perhaps watch some movies).
