This model seems to be on offer at a number of retailers, but for some reason it's currently several hundred less than the normal price. The same version but with a 1080p non-touch screen is £1500.

It's obviously a lot of cash when you compare it to a bog-standard 15" laptop (the likes of which are ten a penny on these pages), but it is a MUCH higher spec along with being fanless, as light as a netbook, having a very quick SSD, super high res touch screen, metal chassis, etc.

Storage - 256 GB M.2 PCIe SSD (Samsung SM951)
Screen - 13.3" 3200x1800 touchscreen
Cooling - Fanless
RAM - 8GB
Connectivity - 802.11ac 2x2 wireless, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC

Seems like a good buy. Interested to see what everyone thinks

I saw the price with them, but I have a feeling that Laptops Direct charge for delivery.

If it's touch screen it really should have a 360° hinge. Touchscreen makes no sense otherwise.

Hot pot, nice

Anything better out there at this price?
13-14", at least 1080p screen.

The latest gen Dell XPS 13 is the main rival I think, but you're looking at an extra £150 ish.

If you're not going to be designing /editing/developing or of course gaming than this could suit otherwise opt for an i5/i7 processor

"Weight - Starting at 1.16kg" - Does it get heavier when you add more software? :)

On the lookout for a late generation i5/i7 packaged in spec like this.

I recently purchased the below deal but not very happy with it. This 7th generation i5 packaged in a HP does not appear to be operate as smoothly as my 4 year old 2nd generation i7 Dell XPS laptop. The new HP also appear to at times make some crackling noises and the button, as compared to my old Dell XPS are not as smooth. The trackpad is not at all accurate and very tinny. Volume is also very low. And it does not manage to open the endless windows I used to be able to open before.

Again, my impression of another more budget HP laptop is also not impressive.

My search for a high spec moderate budget laptop continues.

Yes, but they also charge an additional 2.5% if paying by credit card.

Your Dell XPS will have a quad core i7, your 5th gen i7 is almost certainly a dual core with hyper threading. i3,i5,i7 are marketing terms and mean very little now. If you wish to replace your Dell XPS and need the CPU grunt then you need to look for quad core i7 which do still exist, but it higher end laptops.

If it's touch screen it really should have a 360° hinge. Touchscreen makes no sense otherwise.

I disagree, use touch screen on my computer very often (mainly to scroll or click, it becomes natural) and never (or hardly ever) use the tablet mode so I wouldn't need a machine with a 360 hinge

This is the sort of thing I'm looking to buy when my 2013 vintage 17" HP DV7 Envy laptop dies. I want a machine with a high resolution, and this elitebook does the job.The only complaint I have about my old model is that the left hinge went quite quickly - but after warranty.

Your comment reminded me that the Elitebook in this deal has a 3Y onsite warranty.. Have updated the original post.

I really don't see how in normal laptop mode using a mouse isn't much easier than reaching over the keyboard and touching the screen.

Touchscreen is easier for zooming, quicker for scrolling on webpages and long PDF's (have to read through a lot of documents for work) + am often on trains and no space there for a mouse (and touchpad or trackpoint are slower, even with gestures) + I like it because it is still not ideal for posture but gives me a break from the keyboard all the time.

But in the end all down to personal preference ;-)

Just come down in price by £4.69!

Afaik , these "M" cpus arent really much cop , open a few tabs and they start to get flustered. On this the hi=res screen will take a fair bit of power to both display things and take a toll on battery life. rest of spec seems good ,

i7 processor, but not sure how the envy compares with the elitebook? I suspect the Envy looks good but the Elitebook will bounce..

I agree that it's a little bit slower than an i5 (the tradeoff for being fanless), but I don't think I'd agree in it being not much cop. Benchmarks about 17% slower than the i5-6200u. This is a work machine and I use it pretty heavily, with 20-30 tabs open in Chrome, alongside Outlook, Excel, Word, InfoPath and Skype for Business, and I don't experience any slowdown. I wouldn't try running games on it though :)

Can't comment on the battery life on mine yet as I haven't had it long enough.

This i7 Envy looks interesting. How does it compare against this deal that I recently got for £465.65:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/15-6-hp-pavilion-15-au103na-laptop-i5-7200u-8gb-ram-256ssd-full-hd-466-65-hp-2561770

How does the dual core i5 7200u (HP Pavilion) compare to the dual core i7 6500u (HP Envy) and how do the laptops compare in general? Is the HP Envy i7 worth the extra £260+ (50+%)? I'm finding the i5 7200u (HP Pavilion) lagging with 15 odd windows open plus at times I can hear some crackling) - Any feedback would be appreciated.

Your Dell XPS will have a quad core i7, your 5th gen i7 is almost certainly a dual core with hyper threading

I've done benchmarks and adding hyperthreading to a core gives you maybe 30% extra performance, but it depends on workload. So a true quad core is likely to be at least 1.6 times faster than dual with HT.
Also, I've found thermal throttling kicks in sooner.

Yes physical beats logical or physical beats virtual whichever way you want to term it.

Better have the fire brigade on hand if that happens for any sustained period of time!! X)
