Be quick because this is the best offer I think I’ve ever seen on an ultramobile PC.

Fully loaded Thinkpad 8 for £240

Lenovo Thinkpad 8 tablets in the UK are all on offer now but there’s one incredible deal that I want to highlight. This is probably the most tricked-out ultramobile PC on the market and it’s on sale for £240.

UPDATE: Available across Europe Via Expansys, E.g. Germany.

The Lenovo Thinkpad 8 model 20BN0036UK_UK is currently  over 600 pounds at Lenovo UK. I just bought it for £240. I’m thinking about Windows 10 as I buy this.

Look carefully at these specs:

System: Windows 8.1 Pro
Processor: 1.59 GHz / Quad Core / Intel Bay Trail Quad Core Atom Z3795
Memory: Internal: 128 GB / RAM: 4 GB LPDDR3 / Slot type: microSD
Display: 8.3″ / Full HD IPS / Resolution: 1920 x 1200 pixels
Camera: 8 Mpixels / Flash: Yes / Front: 2 Mpixels / Video: 720p
Network: 4G: LTE
Wireless: Bluetooth: 4.0 / Wifi: IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n
Connection: Audio combo jack (headphone and mic) / MicroUSB 3.0 / Micro HDMI
Weight: 439 grams
Dimensions: 8.8 x 132 x 224.3 mm

So this is a Full HD, Windows 8.1 Pro tablet running the best Baytrail-T Atom there is, with 4GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD!!! Note that this is a full 64-bit Windows OS too.

I know this was launched on 2013 and I know that these price cuts mean that something new is coming but trust me – these specs are good enough for 2015 and 2016. Just get out there and buy this damn thing before it’s gone.

I’m not affiliated. It’s at Expansys UK

Update: Auch in Deutschland.

    bought a 2/128gb TP8 5 months ago for about 190 punds equivilant in denmark.
    love it but the 2 gigs of ram really struggles.
    the 4 gig version here is probably the only way to go.
    do bare in mind that battery life is far from competitive and the high resolution screen is actually a minus on the usabillity of an 8 inch windows 8 tablet.
    but for the portable media manager that i need it is probably the best there is.
    lots of internal storage plus expandabillity and a nice screen for consuming videos is a good combination.
    plus being full windows it networks so easily with my home pc, and also easily mannages my android devices and serves quite well as a media player for my tv with the HDMI out.
    a solid 8/10 in my book, for what i need from it.
    if you are thinking of using it for tons of “classic” windows apps i’d put it closer to a 5.5-6/10 because the high res. makes everything extremely fiddly.
    windows 10 should in theory make that better, but we are months away from seeing if that is true.

    Hmmm have been looking at HP Pro Tablet 610 G1 here in Aus for about same price (new). Also Z3795 and 4gb ram. There’s something appealing about such a powerful 8″ device though…

    This is a great deal. I already own the TP8 2GB / 128GB / non-LTE version. I was hoping for the price of the Z3795 4GB LTE model to come down and finally ordered one as soon as Chippy posted this. Thanks!
    The resolution is no problem for me. Just install TouchMousePointer (fullscreen, 0% opacity) and the display functions as great trackpad. ->

    Update: It arrived today and the specifications are as advertised. Now waiting for updates etc to work through before running the first performance tests.
