    The keyboard works very well. It could however be back-lit.

    Assuming that I will never get my money back I have not wasted that much.

    I had to buy a large monitor to use with the computer that is terrific.
    The marketing information said that memory could be expanded to 8 whatever they are. The truth is that there are only 2? of memory available and this cannot be changed. I feel that this is a gross misrepresentation.

    The monitor does not fold flat therefore getting in the way of a larger monitor.

    I have found it desperately difficult to switch to Windows 8.1 from Windows XP and there does not appear to be any help or guidance available.

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for your feedback on the S20-30. This laptop can be purchased pre-configured with a variety of Ram options, although it is not possible to upgrade the Ram as it is soldered to the board.

    The below link provides some helpful information and tips for Windows 8.1. But if you have any questions, we can be found via Facebook or Twitter, with links below.

    Looks great and runs basic tasks smoothly and well worth the price
    mouse is not very responsive as the click buttons feel almost worn out. Laptop screen takes a very long time to turn on after booting up from stand by or off.

    Good size, good value for money.
    Battery life is 2h and half max, contrary to the advertised time length of four hours.

    Windows 8.1 is a real pain in the back side. You need outlook account to install apps and to use skype.

    Support is bad, When I complained about the battery, they said that's normal...

    Gwynedd GB sent it back
    None - I did not open the box, instead I returned it as unsuitable for purpose
    You misrepresented that the device could be given a memory upgrade from 2Gb of memory to as high as 8Gb.

    No upgrade is possible and no memory module is available for purchase

  • Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the S20

    1. adrian asked on
      Is it good for gaming?
      1. Paul replied on
        Depends what type of gaming you're planning on. Simple indie games will be fine.
      2. Chris replied on
        I would not have thought so, sorry
    2. wish asked on
      is there any way to wake up the pc when i press the power button?

      1. Chris replied on
        Think it does that by default in Win 8.1
      2. Paul replied on
        Yes, the PC can be configured to wake from the power button, opening the lid or keyboard presses (or all of these).
    3. yudi asked on
      is the S20-30 touch mean touch screen? If not why it type use "touch"
      1. Brian replied on
        Because they are a touch dishonest and misleading.
        They say memory is upgradable but it is not
    4. Yudi asked on
      is S20-30 touch have touch screen???
      1. Paul replied on
        Yes. It has a multi-touch panel that works with Windows 8 and 10 gestures.
      2. Spike replied on
        Yes it does - (that is what the "touch" in the model number refers to I suspect).
        Hope that helps!
    5. imran asked on
      Please help..
      Error code 0cx0000185..
      How to boot up?? Windows was installed in it when bought, but did not received CD or USB?? Is it installed within hard drive ?? How to access??
      1. Brian replied on
        Sorry not a clue, I can not use my machine because it is too slow and there is no facility to increase the size of its memory. It is soldered and the marketing and promotional material gave the impression that memry could be increased up to 8GB,
    6. Kesley asked on
      Is there anyway when sitting in the dark the keyboard lights up as I cannot see the keys
      1. Paul replied on
        No, there is no backlit keyboard on this.
      2. Spike replied on
        No. The keyboard does not have a back light
    7. Brenda asked on
      As well as the normal keyboard the s20-30 also has an onscreen keyboard what is the purpose of that as well seems a bit pointless or not?
      1. Spike replied on
        Erm, yes. The on-screen keyboard is really superfluous on a notebook - I have never ever used it :)
      2. Paul replied on
        On-screen keyboard is default for Windows 8 if it detects a touchscreen. In this case, yes it is pointless but you don't have to use it.
    8. Cj asked on
      Is the s20 touch screen please
      1. Carlo replied on
        No, it is not a touch screen laptop. Regards
