Thought this looked quite cheap, has been on HUKD before but at a higher price.

Offer is misleading. It is NOT cashback. You just get a "Gift Card" and have to choose a gift from the list. None of the gifts I would be interested in. Cold from me because of the misleading (for me the price would be £299 + £27 for W7 upgrade = £326 for a single core Celeron).

no it's not:

Buy any Compaq 610 or 615 (excluding VC284EA) notebook before 31 January 2010 and receive £50 Gift from Compaq!

Choose from:
A £50 Gift card, similar to any High Street Gift card except that you can spend ours anywhere that takes Mastercard.
Or
A £50 Cheque that you can pop straight into your bank account.
Or
A fun experience that will make family and friends envious.

One of the options is to get cashback in the form of a Cheque so the price IS £249.

Sorry but voted cold due to misleading price - cashback is never guaranteed.

Sorry but them's the rules.

[FONT=Verdana]It's a good deal especially if your on a limited budget and it does come with all of the basics you need - the integrated Bluetooth and the WebCam are good additional items as well, as they'll cover you for comms with mobile phones along with webcam sessions via MSN Messenger.

Heat from me and good find OP! :-D

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:

[FONT=Verdana]Just looked at the full specs on the IT247.com and the HP UK website - they confirm it's going to come with a six cell battery as well, this is a good deal IMHO.

OK then, my mistake (as was said above "if you can get the cashback").

You still have to spend an extra £27 for W7 upgrade tho (and have the hassle installing it). The cpu/ram combination is really too low for Vista Premium which means you either have to upgrade ram to 3gb or install W7.
#9
why do you have to pay for the W7 upgrade? Doesn't Vista Home premium get upgraded for free?

[FONT=Verdana]Generally that cost is for shipping and the media I'm afraid - this was seen with the recent Dell 17" Notebook deal thread, as members were being charged for the software being sent over from the US of all places!

Note:
2.13 GHz Intel Celeron 560 Processor


Its faster than almost all Atom processors, but is one on the slower laptops around.
#12

Good Deal - Ordered one just before the VAT went back up.

There's a huge difference between manufacturers cashback schemes , which *are* very reliable , and the quidco style affilliate links which aren't.
#15
Misleading and to all extents, a con.
Not well set up either - cold from me.
Hmm. Just read one of the replies and says you CAN get cashback. makes it a bit better.

Why don't people look into deals properly before slagging them off and voting cold?
#17
Where is the choice for the cashback ? Can't see it anywhere, and you would have to order it, and still no sign of choice.
By the way - my wife likes the deal, she only wants it for wireless net use ONLY.
#18
Been burned on cashback before, so cold for me :(
#19
It's not a laptop I would buy, but, some heat from me to make up for these idiots who can't be bothered to read or actually understand a deal and are voting it cold... :?

If you want a very basic laptop, this would do the job better than a netbook you'd typically get for this price.

If you definitely want Windows 7 then sure you'll have to pay the shipping price or whatever, but the spec is just fine for Vista. I've been using my tablet laptop with Vista for the past year on 2GB RAM despite having the means to upgrade it to 4GB - it's simply not been necessary, 2GB has proved plenty.

So the only think actually letting this deal down is the low end CPU but then it's still sufficient for standard stuff like web surfing, word processing etc, is better specs and screen than a netbook, and yet is only about that cost. Thus, top deal, well spotted.

For an extra £40 ebuyer have the AMD version (Compaq 615) - dual core Athlon X2 2.2GHz and ATI 3200 graphics PLUS Windows 7 and still the £50 cashback/giftcard. Gotta be worth the extra?

:whistling::whistling:Just grabbed a couple of these for my kids. Spent all sorts of time over the past few days looking for something that is entry level and cheap, and this machine ticks all the boxes. Not sure why some of you are suggesting that the cash back is a con in anyway as its very straight forward to get a cheque sent to you by using the form at http://www.compaqgiftcard.com/claim.php. Already sent my claim off. When that comes bsck to me I will have an HP/Compaq laptop for £249 - guess what I am feeling pretty smug that I have selected an ace deal!!!

It's still only £305.50 - £50 = £255.50

In my opinion, better than a netbook if you only want to surf the net and don't need ultra-portability

Yeah - I quite agree. I think that this is a cracking deal even if the Celeron processor isn't all that brilliant. Compare the specs on this to the Netbook sold in Aldi (http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/570231/medion-11-6-netbook-reduced-from-33) that's reached over 500 degrees of heat and it's like chalk and cheese for only £50 more (and I guess £40 for the three year warranty that I've bought). Ideal for browsing and occasional use of Office programs.

I already have a good monitor and a big portable hard disk so not interested in the screen or in the hard disk size.

Could a moderator please change the VAT-adjusted price and unexpire?
#31
Deal is not expired - Stock is still at 313 but price has changed to £255.50 instead of £249.00 due to VAT rise.
(plus £3.99 delivery) - Still an excellent price !!

Please unexpire.

Is it worth paying the extra £100 for the deal on amazon??

Personally, I'd stay away from HP if you are looking for a reliable laptop. I bought a HP Pavillion Entertainment laptop and its been nothing but a pain in the ****.

- unplugged from the power adaptor and the battery lasts 5-10 mins ... seriously, it's a joke
- write to HP Customer Services, promise to act, nothing happens
- write to HP CEO, promises to ensure someone acts, nothing happens other than Customers Services say they will be back in touch, 5-6 weeks later and still nothing

Do yourself a favour and avoid HP laptops. Why take the chance of paying top dollar for an inferior product? And non-existent customer service?
