Faster more productive Windows
Windows 10 is the new operating system by Microsoft. It’s packed with brilliant features to help you be more productive, and have more fun! Its super-safe thanks to built-in security and updates, and, if your device is compatible, you can log-in with facial recognition thanks to Windows Hello. Windows 10 also as a speedy Microsoft web browser, and Cortana – your personal virtual assistant.
Your personal virtual assistant
Cortana is designed to make your life easier. She can perform all sorts of tasks like managing your calendar, tracking parcels, finding files and even telling jokes! Simply type your question or request directly into your laptop or just ask Cortana to help you. Voice activation technology means that Cortana recognises your voice and responds to you right away – she’ll even keep you up to date with your interests, favourite places and the weather.
Stream high-quality music and watch 4K videos from your bedroom – without the annoying buffering, thanks to AC Wi-Fi. Your laptop receives a concentrated “beam” of Wi-Fi, which means you can be further away from the router and still get great signal. AC Wi-Fi is the fastest currently available, which means your laptop will benefit from quicker data transfer and download speeds too.
Work smarter easier and faster
Microsoft Office is essential software that doesn’t come loaded on your new device. It provides you with all the tools you need to get your work done. Whether it’s Excel, Word or OneNote, each Office application is packed with easy-to-use features to optimise your time and creativity. Choose from Office 365 Personal or 365 Home, which are subscription services that can be installed across a range of devices. There’s also Home and Student 2016, which is a one-time purchase. Impress, create and inspire with Microsoft Office.
Stay safe online with an antivirus package
Antivirus software is essential. It doesn’t come loaded on your device, so you’ll need to buy it separately. It will protect your desktop, laptop or smartphone from nasty online threats like malware, spyware and viruses – which can all affect your computer in different ways. Antiviruses help keep your details and transactions safe too – so you can shop online with confidence. What’s more, many come with parental controls which are perfect if your family like to browse the internet. We stock both McAfee and Norton packages, so you can choose the perfect antivirus for you.

Brilliant Budget Ultrabook
For the price this laptop is arguably one of the best value ultrabooks on the market today.
I have been meaning to replace my previous behemoth of a laptop for the past 3 years of my life as a university student with something smaller, lighter and with the battery life to last through a 9-5 day.
Campuses & coffee shops across the land are filled with Macbooks and very little else these days, yet the Aspire S13 proves to be a better alternative to the current (and previous) Macbook Air at half the price.
After nearly a month of daily use (Multiple Chrome tabs, Spotify, Word, Powerpoint, Youtube and online eBook reader at all times), i can say the performance hasn't been tested at all yet. Startup time from pressing the power button to the desktop is a matter of seconds without fail. The 8GB of Ram combined with the SSD make everything fast & responsive.
Battery life obviously varies with use but i'm getting at least 8 hours of screen on time with the above programs every day, probably more if i were to test it accurately.
The only negative i can suggest is that the lid portion is made of plastic and appears a bit cheap/flimsy. The brushed aluminium keyboard surround makes up for it though.
Keyboard & trackpad are fantastic, perfect amount of ports (USB C will be the norm in a matter of months so thats handy) and a 1080p matte screen is glare-free.
Overall, one of the best value Windows 10 ultrabooks on the market today. Thoroughly recommend.
Pros: Backlit Keyboard, Long Battery Life, SSD StorageCons: Plastic Lid
