Our quest to find the most affordable laptop with 8 GB of RAM has once again brought us to the Chinese retailer Gearbest, which sells the Lhmzniy KUU Kbook for only $ 189.99 (£ 163.80 / $ 311.99 AU) with coupon code O4A70D05475EB001.
Lhmzniy KUU Kbook Laptop – $ 189.99 at Gearbest
(£ 163.80 / AU $ 311.99)
Lhmzniy's KUU Kbook reaches the very important threshold of 8 GB of RAM – and at an incredibly affordable price. Its processor is by no means the most powerful on the market, but the inclusion of a 128 GB SSD and Windows 10 Pro makes it a great deal.
8 GB is the magic number because it is the minimum amount of memory on which Windows 10 will operate comfortably. Remember that 1 GB of memory tends to be allocated for graphics. As a result, you very often end up with less than 80% of available RAM.
Fortunately, this Lhmzniy notebook reaches the very important threshold. Just note that exact prices will vary from region to region, depending on the daily exchange rate, and international customers may be charged additional fees by customs.
The laptop's only major weakness is its processor – a relatively slow Intel Celeron N3350, which is about 10% faster than the ubiquitous Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor.
The rest of the configuration, however, is more than enough; beyond 8 GB of RAM, there is a 128 GB SSD, a 14.1-inch Full HD screen, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Windows 10 Pro.
On the design side, it looks a lot like the old Apple MacBook Pro laptops, but with a larger number of ports (two USB 3.0, an HDMI, a card slot and an audio connector).
Keep in mind…
If this product is from mainland China, it will take at least a month to reach the United States or the United Kingdom (and potentially more). You may be charged a fee directly or through the mail.

We doubt that its battery can last eight hours, but it is plausible that the machine can accommodate both a SATA drive and an M2 drive.
