My fifteen quid one was the pro version. Not sure whether to try it yet as my 120 gb C: SSD drive is fairly full.
The Superbooks look like a very cheap and useful way of getting a bit more out of your phone (plus obviously they're upgraded each time you get a new phone).I recall a few people have asked about bluetooth keyboards for phones for typing whilst on the go. This seems a great solution to that 'problem'.
I'd just like an adapter so that I can plug my phone into my work screen (vga) and keyboard (usb) (and quickly switch between the phone computer and the work computer) - and preferably charge the phone at the same time. too much to ask?
Thread resurrection: Just ordered one of these for 40FAs (£99) ...https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lenovo-11-6-Inch-Chromebook-Laptop-Black/dp/B01GCNZ79C/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1471424867&sr=8-2&keywords=lenovo+chromebook+n22For the family/kids to use. Semi rugged with a water resistant keyboard.Will give it a test and report back.
Any chance of you building the PC yourself or not something you're looking to do?
Depending on that situation and a rough price guide I could answer in more detail.
However, a system based on the AMD 5600G (G-stands for built in graphcis) CPU could probably fit those needs and remove the need for an expensive dedicated graphics card. Intel have similar offerings but AFAIK especially for gaming the AMD CPUs with built in graphics tend to do better. When dedicated graphics cards get thrown into the mix it becomes more of a wash.IT tech is a little complicated at the moment due to still inflated Graphics card prices but also both INTEL and AMD (the two CPU makers) have new generation of CPUs requiring new motherboards which use the more expensive DDR5. So, unless you're planning on spending a bomb and getting a really cutting edge system. You're almost certainly better on the previous Gen CPUs, motherboard and DDR4 ram.
This website is a font of regularly updated data in terms of which bundle of components are good value at a range of price points:https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/for example:https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/guide/DWv6Mp/entry-level-amd-gaming-buildThat above build guide uses the same 5600G CPU I mentioned as being a decent option.Even if you don't build a system yourself, their guides can be a good check list for one you'd buy from a supplier.
