compaq/hp are the most unreliable laptops according to the service desk at John Lewis, chap told me this when I took mine in for repair. Never buy one again ;-(
#2
In my experience after using toshiba, vaio, dell, fujitsu,acer, asus and ibm, HP is the best reliable, especially business line notebooks.
I have been using my current nc8430 for the last 3 years with no problems at all.

Did you see this one has 7200 rpm HDD too?
#3
Looks a good spec for the price.
#4
Anyone took part in this cashback offer before?
#5
Apart from the graphics this is a pretty good spec.
Reviews give it a battery life of around 4 hours
which is reasonable.
A good buy. Heat added.
#6
4 hours is excellent for this type of laptop.

i think i would pay the extra £30 for the dell deal but still a good price:)

I'm a big fan of the Compaq CQ60 series (best mouse ever + separate keypad) + HDMI.

Don't agree with JL. A comment like this in isolation doesn't really mean anything. How many notebooks were returned out of how many sold? If you sell 1000 Compaq and get 10 back it's 1%. If you sell 10 Acer and get 1 back it's 10%. In this example you got more Compaq returned than Acer. Does this mean the Compaq is worse? I don't think so.

£100 cash back is trade in against your old pc.

No its not this model is £100 cashback. No trade in required.

i had plenty of laptops and the best build and reliability to me is toshiba.

I reckon this: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/619395/dell-inspiron-1564-intel-core-i3-33 is a better deal if you can get it through Dell.co.uk/epp (3% off) or quidco @ 3%. Works out to £390. Not voted on this one.

Laptop reliability survey: ASUS and Toshiba win, HP fails
The 3-year service history of more than 30,000 laptops has been pored over, analyzed, and reduced to gorgeous comparative charts, which you know you're dying to know more about.

compaq in the old days were unreliable yes...but now they are exactly HP laptops with the compaq brand on them so would you reconsider? :whistling: the repairman you saw was probably trying to get you so mad so he can sell you another machine :p

reliability is a difficult thing to measure, has anyone considered normal usage conditions, a drop or a bump that isn't doing any damage now could cause damage that would manifest later, have they measured user behaviour in this test? I have seen laptops sitting on desks for years ON DAY AND NIGHT and they just don't fail...actually i'm sitting in front of one now...its FUJITSU SIEMENS and it's been on constantly in the past 9 months...day and night....plus i've seen laptops going out with engineers that failed within months, remember usage conditions play am important factor in a laptop's life...:thumbsup:

PLUS I WILL NEVER TRUST THESE FIGURES! NO SAIN COMPANY WILL REVEAL THIS TYPE OF INFORMATION TO THE END USER...ESPECIALLY THESE TYPES OF MASSIVE MONEY MAKING CORPORATIONS

Well surely if one manufacture sells more than the other then these result don't really mean anything.

The hard drive is very slow though. If there's anything I'd notice it's the speed of the hdd but then I don't use any applications that would make use of the quality of the cpu in that one.

Not buying one of these.. looks like there's a big crack across the screen!

Nice graph but I guess what it doesn't take in to account is usage, I'm guessing that most apple and probably Sony laptops are bought by individuals whereas the Toshiba, Dells and HPs are much more corporate machines so get thrown in bags dragged round meeting, planes trains etc and generally taken less care of.

Personally, I wouldn't want a 7200 RPM drive in my laptop as I reckon it would get very hot and would be at risk of having a shorter life. But that's just my thinking, I may be totally wrong about it.

Hmm...: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/623112/play-com-acer-aspire-7530g-754g32bn/showpost.php?p=7998759&postcount=23

If we talk about % it certainly does :)

Yes, there is something in what you have just said.I would add even more against Sony and Apple - they do not sell low-end so their statistics should be incomparable to the others .

Anyway - 30 000 it's a massive and significant sample - numbers do not lie (statistics can, though :) )
#22
Not to bad overall. I suggest to take caution before buying as technology is 3 year old now. X3100 chipset in this laptop is antique by modern standards.

Agree entirely - don't go near an HP/Compaq, unless you are planning to sell it on when the warranty expires - they rarely last beyond the one year warranty date, and HP don't want to know after that....they 'generously' offer to repair them for £400...nice company...!
#24
Hmm - anyone doubting HP/Compaq's poor laptop reliability - just check out the forums on HP's own site: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Hardware/HP-dv2000-6000-8000-9000-tx1000-Video-Problems/m-p/112/highlight/true#M5004
72 PAGES of failed laptops...all with the same problem...
#25
Stay away from HP laptops. I bought one for my daughter and it broke down at 11 months (fixed in warranty) and failed again at 26 months and not fixed. Now acting as a door stop.
And I used to work for HP!!!
See: http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/1595771/chinese-rejects-hp-laptops

I would recommend business HP laptops though. They are built much better but cost a lot more.
#26
Surely much better of paying an extra £40 and getting a latest generation i3 system of basicly the same spec? http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/595524/dell-inspiron-1564-core-i3-3gb-ddr3

They are using percenatages so it's not an issue.

I'm looking for a decent quality laptop around the £400 mark - how does this stack up?
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-15-6-inch-Notebook-Processor-Battery/dp/B0031IOM8O

I notice the Dell has gone up to £430 now delivered.
