Deals on full HD Ultrabooks

Recommended Posts

We recently did a thread about Laptop suggestions. I ran into these today and remembered how some folks don't want touch screens just the the standard Ultrabook form factor. This is for folks that want to save a few bucks and want a good 14"-15.5" laptop without touch screen but other great features for under $400.00

Since these require longer shipping times I would only recommend to folks with home bases they spend time at. They would not have worked for me when we were full-time because we kept moving and could only send them to family to hold until we got to our two month LA winter quarters.

I prefer two in ones and hybrid laptops with detachable keyboards. And I don't use laptops, just Surface Pro and Go Windows 2 in ones, and Amazon Fire tablets for only consumption - reading/movies. I don't do emails or browsing on my smart phones. I do anything typing on my Windows 10 AIO desktops and Windows 10 tablets, I have links below to some great deals but some caveats. These folks take longer than most as they are shipped mostly from China but do have a US warehouse. I have done business with these folks and have gotten many outstanding buys. But they do take awhile. On the other hand I get things for .99 cents and free shipping and they are great. I have bought five smartwatches for Android or iPhones and they are so inexpensive at an average $20-$35 for good values. Rather than buy the big ticket watches that do the same or less, I can afford to experiment and after three or four usually find all satisfactory but one that outshines. The rest I give as gifts with the caveat that I do not do support after the gift.

My point is that this company is easy to do biz with, takes two to three weeks to deliver, or even a month, but they tell you that up front. I bought all of my past mini PCs there and one for $99 served me well as a TV PC for five years before it failed. Returns of DOA are slow but they respond quickly. I have gotten some crappy supposed fast charge USB - C cables, but pretty much love buying their Deals.

These deals are limited time and if you get something you hate, or don't like email only customer service, do not buy there.

First here is the article that I read that motivated me to look and these are indeed on sale and very good value if they prove out. I already checked the reviews on all three, the English ones give five and four stars. Caveat emptor!

Just FYI, I placed an order for RV's "#1 Choice" and it disappeared down the rabbit hole.  Paypal was quick enough to pass through the $375 charge to my credit card on October 5 but neither Paypal nor  Chase can give me a transaction or tracing number, only a charge from "Paypal *Gearbest". 

I've received numerous promotional emails from Gearbest since then but nothing to verify the order was actually placed.  I've not received the merchandise.  Gearbest's customer service is a joke, the only contact is through the website and it just leads you in circles.  I've disputed the transaction and I'm now waiting for resolution.

You can check that your order was received and processed by signing into your Gearbest account and go to your name and pull down menu to "Orders." Tracking is there too but pretty slow. I would check online pretty soon.

I've never had them beat me out of anything I ordered. But at this point it sounds like your refund will be a good exit from this debacle.

I withdraw my recommendation for them in light of your experience Lou.

What is really frustrating is I did check on "Orders" and there's nothing there.  Paypal didn't give my CC a transaction number, just "Paypal - Gearbest" showing the $375 charge.  Gearbest's chat representative upgraded my inquiry to their Customer Sales team promising a response in 24 hours.   Three days later still nothing.

My order really did fall down the rabbit hole and my only option has been to dispute the charge, which is pending.
