Add a few more quid and you get a proper dual core laptop. Celeron my foot!
#2
Can't see where it says 2gb apart from the headline? Everywhere else in the spec is 1gb....
#3
If you add it to your trolley then the extra memory is added there. I know as I've bought one :)

These Celerons are quite good (if you bothered checking). Some people just post for the fun it I swear..... hey ho

the celerons just now are fairly decent and quick enough for most simple single core apps. for browsing the net and email etc they are absolutely fine.
#5
Voted hot, not a bad deal.

Celly is fine for light stuff like surfing/email/word processing.
#6
Excellent deal.

For those skittish about a Celeron.

£50 cashback before 31/03/2008

Needs extra memory (only 1GB extra can be added) but you get a (slow) C2D and Vista Business so a choice of XP or Vista.
#7
[COLOR="Navy"]Might be the way I'm reading spec, but it looks like you have to buy "* Power requirements External 65W HP AC adapter" as an "essential extra" [too right] at price of £32.59.

Would have thought it should be included [ as it is necessary - unless you have one ?? ][/COLOR]
#8
Puzzling i agree. Good price if everything is included with 2Gb Memory. I'm with the others though, prefer to spend£50 more and grab a dual core but for those who demand the cheapest useable laptop then for £70 more than an eee pc i think its worth it!
#9
Just spoke to Ebuyer pre-sales and as expected it does indeed come with it's PSU.
#10
Another caveat with the C2D HP is that it has the 960 chipset rather than the 965 so the max Ram is limited to 2GB or so have read.
#11
Does the price include VAT?
Any idea how much delivery is?

Bought one for my mum. Debated about the Celeron and researched it and it appears its just got a bad name. It is sold as a basic processor and so should do the job for everyday use. There is no point spending a lot more on something you won't need.
Anyone know if the RAM is coming separately or is ebuyer putting it in themselves?
Very pleased at getting an HP laptop with 2gb Ram at this price.
#17
Good to see a basic laptop coming with 2gb ram.

Hot.
#18
From how it looked on the order wozza2k I think the memory will be a separate item that you have to install yourself. Nothing too difficult though, normally just a flap underneath that you open up and plug it in.
#19
look at the specs below it says no cpu ;-) LOL

Interesting - I'm typing this on a C2D 6720s (1.8/120/DVDRW model) with 3gb...
#22
The 6720s range uses 2 different chipsets.

The one in the OP uses the Mobile Intel 965GM chipset which can use up to 2Gb in each so dimm
slot.

The one that I highlighted uses the 960 express chipset that according to the intel website can only see 1Gb in each slot.

This may be why the £50 cashback is available on that model.
#23
Vista basic is rubbish, and the 60 day office trial is a joke. If you don't mind those, its a good deal.

Well iI've got an old IBM thinkpad With a celeron processor and use photoshop , edit, burn movies and play sims no problem. the secret is not to have too many applications running in the background using up precious resources they can be switched off via run/msconfig/startup
#25
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the 5XX series Celerons and it always amuses me when people post slamming them with 10 year old 'knowledge' They are basically just half a Core 2 Duo chip. I bought one of these laptops a few weeks back and with 2GB it is absolutely brilliant for the money. Be aware that as noted above this only comes with Vista Basic which is about as good as Dos 4.0 compared to XP or Home Premium. If you have a copy of XP or VHP then it is a good deal, otherwise I am not so sure. They were doing a version with VHP for £299 which seemed a better deal to me, even when you needed to add 1Gb youself on that one.
#26
Vista Home Basic is the biggest snag here...
#27
Hi,

I'm trying to decide between this and another deal. Both seem to be about the same spec at the same price. Anyone got any preferences for HP vs Fujitsu?

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/139119/show_product_overview

This is for using for surfing the web and occasional MS office etc.
banned#28
pretty average
banned#29
Good deal.
2gb for that price means Vista might actually run half decently, unlike some other laptops that come with 1gb.
Also, its SATA hdd means a possible SSD disk upgrade in the future.
All in all a decent deal, the processor is very average but it does the basic well enough.
Will play FM if you do not care for hardcore gaming and will do everything the average to light user wants to do.

You might be able to upgrade the processor one day, and external graphics, while a pipe dream have potential. Why would you want to at this price, it is like Ronseal.
Definitely hot.

I bought an HP PC vista basic (deal from here) and was shocked how slow vista is moving files from one folder to another takes ages, tip for anyone else with basic you can get the Aero interface just by changing a couple of registry values,

Just sold mine for £400 nice bit of profit :)

Add a few more quid and you get a proper dual core laptop. Celeron my foot!


I purchased a celeron M over 2 years ago and it is running strong, however on someones behalf I purchased the Centrino and that one has been returned on numerous ocasions. I do partially agree that they are the weaker of the Mobile chips but still good value for money.

Can you please advise where you have seen a dual core laptop for a few quid more?.

Thanks in advance
#37
is there anyway of getting free delivery? mine keeps coming up with 9.99 delivery charge. thanks.

Just ordered this one after a lot of dithering. In the end I just need a laptop for basic use so the extra £50 for the C2D (plus 1gb ram on top) was too big a gap. Also the HPs all seem to have a very good battery life according to all the reviews. Thats the main reason I did not go for the £200 Currys refurb.

BTW any links to the Aero reg tweak?

Hi all, once the microsoft office 2007 expires, i will need to buy new software for word processing / spreadsheet. Wouldn't that cost quite a lot of money? or am i missing something?
