Lenovo Tab E10 Tablet – Cheapest price UK

Android tablets are a dying bread, not because they are bad but because Apple’s iPad dominates the market. However Lenovo have produced a decent tablet for people who don’t want to spend £400 on a tablet. The Lenovo Tab E10 is a 10in (10.1 actually) tablet with a modern smart look. And John Lewis have got it for a ridiclous £79 delivered or collection in store.

The tablet comes with 2 years warranty, and a six hour battery. While it wont set the world on fire, it has a good if unspectacular screen, certainly good enough for Netflix binging and social media. While the form factor is fairly light too.

Downsides, well it does only have 2GB of RAM so you wont be doing a million things at once with ease. This is something we would like to see Android tablets move away from as it limits them to media devices, but if this is just going to be a Netflix Facebook machine thats fine. With the Snapdragon 210 processor it will manage basic games, and if emulation is your thing anything from the 16bit era should be fine like SNES and Mega Drive. While the 16GB of storage means if you are going to a none wifi area on holiday, you will want an SD card for all your shows and films downloaded, which thankfully this is expandable.

Its a pretty thin tablet at only 8.9mm, and also comes with decent Dolby Atmos front firing speakers, not bad!

Overall the Lenovo E10 is a thin cheap tablet with a decent screen for £79 with a 2 year warranty. The Amazon Fire 10 is the nearest rival, but that you dont have the full Google Play Store, but it is a bit faster. thats available on offer for £99 but usual price is more like £149 and its certainly not twice as good.

Samsung Chromebook 3G XE303C12-H01 Review

This Samsung Chromebook XE303C12-H01 is an impressive laptop which gives fast virus free performance, and even built in 3g for internet on the go. If bought from John Lewis it also features a 2 year warranty. At time of writing you can also get £50 cashback from Samsung, and a free Samsung Galaxy Mini, as well as 100MB of data for your Chromebook every month for a year. Read more about the XE303C12-H01 below.

In a nutshell Review:

Positives:

  • Ultra light, and portable laptop. You wont feel this in a bag its that light! Just over 1Kg!
  • Up to ten hours battery life, means all day computing.
  • Runs Googles Chrome OS, which is virtually virus free and always is up to date, without all those annoying update messages you see on Windows.
  • Runs thousands of apps designed specifically for Chrome, from Photo editing, Office Software to Google Hangouts (video chat)
  • Fast dual core Samsung Exynos processor and 720p high resolution 11.6 inch screen.
  • Stylish machine
  • 3G built in means you can get on the internet virtually anywhere,
  • Boots up in under 10 seconds, and is ready to go online in that time!
  • Constant updates means it wont be out of date next year!
  • 2 year warranty if bought from John lewis and 90 day software support.

Negatives:

  • Doesnt run “traditional” Windows programs. There are alternatives for most, but some omissions like Skype. You would have to use Google Hangouts.
  • Not designed for non Internet locations. There aren’t many around these days, but its worth noting.

Conclusion:

Once you get over the whole, “its not Windows” the Chromebook provides a fast, efficient way to access the Internet and to simple tasks like Word Processing, watching iPlayer, YouTube, Facebook etc. It’s ideal for students or people who would like a cheap laptop on the go. Chrome OS is not made to replace your main computer yet, however it is getting more advanced all the time, and improvements to an already fast operating system are happening all the time. With the bonus of a free phone, £50 cashback and 100MB of data a month its a great deal. If you need more you could always buy an Ovivo Mobile SIM with 750MB a month for a one off £15.

The Samsung Chromebook 3G XE303C12-H01 costs £299 but you can get £50 cashback at time of writing. There is also a non-3G version for £229.

HP Envy DV6-7300EA, Core i7, 1TB, 8GB RAM laptop cheapest price £799.95 – Chomping Turtle Review

In todays world we require a laptop that can do everything, and in this review we check to see if the HP Envy DV6-7300EA can fit the bill. It is currently available for just £799.95 from John Lewis with a free 2 year warranty 90 days of software support.

Specification:

As you would expect with a top of the range laptop from HP, you get all the bells and whistles in the power department. The latest generation Intel Core i7 processor will make any task exceptionally quick, whether that is photo editing or general everyday to day use. It is also backed up with 8GB of RAM which means multitasking is not a problem. Unlike many laptops nowadays in this price range instead of an ultra fast solid state drive, you get a regular hard drive, which gives you much more room, 1TB. While this means initial load up is not as quick as some ultrabooks, you are getting up to 10x more storage meaning plenty of space for photos, videos etc. This really could replace your desktop PC. If you are a gamer you will be impressed with the 2GB dedicated graphics card also.  For movie fans, this allows you to play full HD films on your TV via the HDMI port. The only downside to the specification is the screen resolution is not full HD, just 1366×768 (higher than 720p). This is a slight disappointment, but the screen is clear and the colours very bright.

Features:

However one way this makes up for lack of Full HD is it also features Intel Wireless Display (WiDi). This allows you to stream in Full HD to a compatible TV. A great feature for showing off photos. As said before, you can still link up to a TV with HDMI. There are also full speed USB 3.0 for ultra fast external devices. Battery life is above average for a laptop this size, with a quoted 6 hours. Realistically this would be around 5, still good. Being HP it features Beats Audio sound which means when hooked up to some good headphones or speakers, it will gives superb quality. The standard speakers are above average for a laptop also.

Summary:

The DV6-7300EA is a great high end laptop without a high end price. The aluminum feels and looks great and although the screen would be nice if it was full HD, the array of latest tech features like Wireless display and 2GB graphics card more than make up. This is a fast laptop which would happily replace almost any desktop PC. Plus if you buy from John Lewis it is backed up by a two years warranty for piece of mind.
