    Yes they kitted out our whole school last year and so far the kit has been very robust, and has held up better than several toshiba laptops I wouldn't buy from ebuyer though I'm still waiting for my 2 servers 4weeks after placing the order. Go direct with them it's much easier and you'll save a bit as well.

    Their all in one touch screens are lovely :-)

    That looks rather a lot like the rebadged Clevo that sits on my desk at work. In terms of build quality, they're adequate. It's relatively light and the keyboard isn't the worst that I've seen on a laptop. The touchpad is pants but then I've never seen on on a non-mac which isn't. They don't say what the resolution of the screen is but with a 740m gpu and at £569 I'd put money on it being 1366x768. However Clevo do offer a 1080p screen as an option so it might be better than that.

    That's the hardware, I've not heard of the oem so I don't know what kind of service you'd get from them if it went wrong and in my experience the less said about ebuyer's after sales, the better.

    Good question; From £299 + VAT (13.3" 1366*768 HD Wide with 1.3MP HD webcam, Intel Pentium 997 Dual Core, HD4000, 2GB 1333 soDIMM, 60GB SSD, No Optical, 3in1 Card reader, WiFi + BT No O/S, 3YR CR, 1.7KG) Brushed aluminium cover, durable construction and design, and top quality touch pad with floating keyboard. You can spec the RAM (up to 8GB), HDD (2.5"), O/S, Wi-Fi (up to Ultimate N6300 450Mbps). Comes with LAN, 3 x USB2.0, HDMI, VGA, Audio in & Out with mic. Lovely bit of kit, next generation i3,5,7 should be available by May 2014.

    Mega popular item at the moment, and most deals seem to begin life as an Android tablet / chromebook inquiry as a Netbook replacement and end up going for this Ultrabook.

    Sorry, rather embarrassingly not up there yet; I gather big Al will be completely changing the product area for mobile solutions soon, but at the moment the Ultrabook is a well kept secret..! At the moment I have my marketing PDFs and such like that I can send by email. If anyone's interested feel free to contact me by email or give me a call.
