I have not been able to connect to your lnk, or even to laptopsdirect's website all day.

Sounds like it may be a good deal but possibly if other people are having the same problem that would explain the low popularity of your post.

There are plenty of places selling these for close to £650 including HP’s own web-store: http://www.hpoutlet.co.uk/Hewlett_Packard_6715b_Laptop_GB835ET_ABU/version.asp

It’s a very good spec for a net £550 especially as you get a high resolution screen. I bought a HP Turion X2 with £100 cashback back in March from Ebuyer which was very similar to this and I was disappointed with it. The screen was just okay, it was a bit noisy without being terrible and the build quality was again middling. Good value but personally I’d rather hunt around and get a better deal; I sold mine.

I was just about to buy one of these when I saw your comment!

I currently have a ThinkPad designed for business use and the biggest problem is the dull screen.

I was just wondering if you (or any other HP users!) could comment on how bright the HP screen is and how it compares to other brands?

(I've noted that this model comes with a Wide-angle screen rather than an HP bright screen).

Thanks very much :).

doesnt matter where you buy this laptop from...everywhere will get you £100 off as it is a promotion honoured by HP (via a company called Outbound). Just send your receipt/invoice to them and claim.

this notebook was (officially) launched on 9th may and does have the brightview technology built in. it is basically anti-reflective LCD screen technology. This is the newest variant of it with higher contrast ratios. Bear in mind though that it it is not only HP that have it - Brightview is just HP's name for it. The LCD panel manufacturers who ODM the screens for most Tier 1/Tier 2 OEMs supply this as standard nowadays.

Thanks very much for your response :).

The thing is here:

HP Website

Select the right 15.4-inch diagonal widescreen
display that best suits your needs -- either a
WSXGA+WVA (wide viewing angle) with antiglare
display or a WXGA with your choice of an
anti-glare display or HP BrightView display.

...

15.4-inch diagonal WSXGA+WVA (1680 x 1050 and 16M colors), 15.4-inch diagonal WXGA (1280 x 800 and 16M colors),
15.4-inch diagonal WXGA BrightView (1280 x 800 and 16M colors)

If this is the WSXGA variant, then the specs suggest it has wideviewing angle and antiglare but not the bright display technology?

Sorry to sound pedantic but this is one of the main reasons for upgrading as well as to get a little more speed :).

Thanks :)

although you are looking at the Worldwide family specification each regions Product Managers have to pick from one of the 3 screen manufacturing options. Namely 15.4-inch diagonal WXGA anti-glare (1280 x 800 resolution), 15.4-inch diagonal WXGA BrightView (1280 x 800 resolution) or 15.4-inch diagonal WSXGA+ WVA anti-glare (1680 x 1050 resolution).

The SKU you are looking at, which is valid for the promo, is GB835ET#ABU. GB8385E is the model, T denotes it is from HP's Top Value (pre discounted line) and ABU is the localisation - namely UK. This UK spec has a 1680 x 1050 WSXGA+ screen according to the UK HP spec site so it has the antiglare but not the brightview surface treatment:( my bad...you'd think someone from the sauce company would know what they are talking about lol. Probably best going in somewhere to get a look at somehting treated with brightview and something not treated with brightview - remembering that it isn't just HP that have it.

The 15.4-inch WSXGA+ is
wide-viewing angle, anti-glare
Diagonal Size 15.4 in (39.1 cm)
Surface Treatment Anti-glare
Contrast Ratio 300:1 (typical)
Refresh Rate 60 Hz
Brightness 200 nit (typical)
Pixel Resolution Pitch 0.197 mm
Format 1680 x 1050
Configuration RGB stripe
Backlight CCFL
PPI 129 (pixels per inch)
Viewing Angle ±60° Horizontal, ± 50° Vertical (minimum)

The 15.4-inch WXGA BrightView is
Active Area (W x H) 13.0 x 8.1 in (33.1 x 20.7 cm)
Diagonal Size 15.4 in (39.1 cm)
Surface Treatment BrightView
Contrast Ratio 300:1 (typical)
Refresh Rate 60 Hz
Brightness 200 nit (typical)
Pixel Resolution Pitch 0.259 mm
Format 1280 x 800
