Nice laptop, Full HD display (1080p, 1920 x 1080) and a bluray drive.
#2
graphics GDDR3? or just DDR2?

1080p screen you dont get that with many lappys :D heat added
#3
This isn't just a 1080p display, it's a LVDS FHD AG Dual Lamps with BrightView Infinity Display! And I don't mean that as a joke. I used to have this laptop and the display is second to none. It's even better than the HD RGBLED screen that you have to pay over £1000 with the Dell XPS Studio 16 for. The reason I know is that' the laptop I have right now.

This is a seriously hot deal that you won't regret if you buy.
#4
A 1920x1080 resolution on a 16" screen isn't for everyone though.
#5
hot h&r :thumbsup:
#6
Great deal and I like HP laptops so very tempted ; what are play like to deal with for more expensive electrical items ? I have only used them before for DVDs/CDs...
#7
Does anyone know what the warranty is on these? The last high end HP laptop I bought came with a 3 year warranty as standard, if this was a 3 year warranty I think I might be tempted ....

Oh just noticed it has a backlit keyboard as well .....

for those interested about the display performance of this type of display, here is a review of another HX16 series HP laptop using the same display technology (source):

Display

HP has also come up with something special for the display, or at least in its name. "Dual Channel LVDS FHD AG-Display Infinity BrightView”, is the name of the 16-inch glare display. Technically speaking behind the name hides a panel with double lamp illumination in full HD resolution. LVDS stands for "Low Voltage Differential Signalling" and describes an interface standard for LCD displays.

In our brightness test with the Mavo Monitor from Gossen the panel admittedly performed so-so. The maximum measured brightness in the central measuring square was at an average of 192 cd/m². Point of criticism number one for the display is indeed the strong brightness wastage at the borders inwards (at up to 141 cd/m²), which brings the illumination of the display to a weak 74%. Thanks to the preset rather dark HP background images, this is at first hardly noticeable. With bright backgrounds encompassing white, the brightness devolution is indeed recognisable by eye.

Information
Maximum: 192.0 cd/m²
Average: 156.2 cd/m²
Illumination: 72 %
Black: 0.42 cd/m²
Contrast: 457:1
Distribution of brightness

Thanks to the low black values of just 0.42 cd/m², the HP Pavilion HDX16 can indeed expect a good maximum contrast ratio. At 457:1 the Panel should not dread comparison to other multimedia laptops.

Strongly reflecting display in unfavourable lighting conditions, also indoors.

The display in "edge-to-edge" design is aesthetically pleasing, and provides a "crisp" picture when used indoors in well regulated light conditions. The display doesn't get on well with light sources behind the user at all. Strong reflections are the consequences and working with the device is troublesome for the eyes. As a result this is also true for the HDX16 when used outdoors. Too strong reflections and the so-so brightness of the panel make reasonable outdoor use of the laptop barely possible.

Also the possible viewing angles are determined by the reflective display. Both horizontal and vertical fields of vision end up with a departure from ideal perpendicular viewing angles which briskly causes disturbing reflections, even before visible changes to the picture appear.

bought :) looks awesome!

answered my own question about the warranty after seaching the hp site. Warranty is 1 year and costs £148 to extand to 3 years.

Would be very tempted if it had Windows 7, instead of the all consuming memory guzzling Vista!

vista isn't "that" bad! but yes i will be replacing with win 7

cold for me, old cpu, old os, you can get the i5 dell with a better cpu, memory and os for like minded money
#14
looks like a fantastic deal,

i would have bought this but I just dont like HP, bought 2 laptops from them in the past and both have broke on me.

still hot though :thumbsup:

its not available anymore. it had no bluray, no remote.

this is a really good media laptop. not everyone wants to play crysis :)
#16
Sounds like a great deal, but i would rather wait for laptops with CPU i-series (i3, i5, i7).
I think that prices of these laptops will drop further down and make it better deal comparing to CPU P-series.
#17
...shame its not a blu-ray writer..that would make this the ultimate bargain if it had that!

I agree, see this for about £410 including quidco ( http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/619417/dell-inspiron-1764-intel-core-i3-2- ) but doesnt come with bluray.
It does have a faster processor though
Intel Core2 Duo P7450 @ 2.13GHz = 1576
Intel Core i3 M 330 @ 2.13GHz = 2078

yep you're totally right, i was going to wait but i have a desktop for my workhorse this for me right now is perfect (ok 18.4" screen and bluray writer would be perfect lol). the screen on this badboy is supposed to me amazing! can't wait to get it!

Almost similar except it weighs more, has a lower resolution screen , smaller hard drive, no dedicated graphics card, no backlit keyboard, no gigabit ethernet ........:thumbsup:

Horses for courses. The people that are looking to buy the Hp laptop won't be considering the Dell and people who are considering the Dell won't be looking at the HP as they are just too different.

Yes they are dfferent, but whlst the Dell is heavier and doesnt have a gaming graphics card, it does have a larger screen. Backlit keyboard and gigabit network - most users really wont need these features. Oh and the Dell is almost £200 cheaper.

Anyhow there are Dells for the same money with specs that match or better the HP that also have win 7and a modern CPU, which despite the HPs fabulous screen, makes this deal a little on the chilly side. But I also expect this price to slide further.

this has backlit kb and gigabit network too

edit lol just read properly!
#23
how does 1920x1080 look on a 16inch screen?

the icons on the deskop must be TINY! Also is full HD really beneficial for watching blu ray on this size screen ?

on the other hand if doing photo editing and CAD then the high res would be of benefit for sure.

can someone highlight the benefits please?

thanks

oh yes it is!.

7 is a vast improvement, but still has the annoying interruption of the 'do you want to' pop ups even after you've just said you've wanted, seems windows wants to check every decision you make, and it get ruddy irritating!.

as for the 'new' feature of home networks & sharing file son a network, that's just a more complex version of what xp could do by simply selecting 'share this folder'.

I called microsoft, told them W7 could be better - Windows 8 is my idea !

Why dont you just delete this option?

I have a HDX16 which i bought last just over a year ago with slightly diff specs to the one listed but it does have the full HD screen which i love as i connect it upto my full HD TV for movie playback.

You can remove the 'do you want to' feature by changing the security settings in the user control panel

The point I was making is that these machines are so different that they can't be compared, they are aimed to 2 competely different markets.

Both machines at their pricepoint and configuration are excellent.

Just go to Start type UAC click the "change User Account Control Settings" icon that comes up move the slider to "Never Notify" click OK and then restart your computer. No more annoying messages.

Dell are cheap for a reason. I provide IT support and 9 out of 10 board failures are Dell machines. Maybe even 10 out of 10... I've seen 2 in the past week.

I have to admit that although I acknowledge it is several hundred pounds more expensive, I sometimes don't get why some deals get hot and some are really cold.

For example compare this machine to this Sony deal I posted (currently at -144 cold/heat level!)
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/623601/sony-vaio-f11v5e-16-4-1080p-i5-520-

I know it is £330 more but with Sony you get:

BDRE vs BDROM
GT330m vs GT130M gpu
Core i5-520 (2.53-293ghz) vs C2D P7450 2.13Ghz
4GB 1066 DDR3 vs 3GB RAM DDR2
Windows 7 64bit vs Vista 64bit
500Gb 7.2k rpm vs 320Gb 5.4k rpm HDD.

Is it not worth £330 for high-end system?
Weird this is + 144 and Sony - 144 degrees I think.

Yes, this is older and heavily discounted but if you are in the market for a powerful laptop you would buy a Core processor...

I'm afraid you're missing the big point on this machine. The screen. The only other display on a laptop on the market that even compares to this screen is the HD RGBLED display on the high end Dell XPS Studio 16's that costs well over £1000. The display on this Sony will be far inferior which almost makes up for all of the other things that make it better. So it' never worth another £330.
