I have the similarly specced HP Envy 15-j151sa and it is brilliant for the £370 I paid.
This is hot.

Apparently WiFi issues have been fixed with an update

Noticed some initial wi-fi instability that disappeared after updating drivers with HP's pre-installed tool. Been pretty solid on both Virgin Media Super Hub 2ac and BT Smart Hub since. :D

Hi - Does "similarly specced" include the same processor as this one? If so, I would be grateful for a performance (no gaming) perspective from an actual user. Thanks in advance. :-)

Wifi issues seems to be it needs a software update once you open it out of the box just

Good to see full HD laptops coming down to reasonable prices. This looks pretty good for the price - shame about the AMD CPU (heat production).

Its an AMD-A10 apu - not sure if its the exact same or not.
Performance is great - never had any issues or slowdown, other half uses it for Adobe Photoshop etc so fairly intensive too.

There should be a HP settings logo on the taskbar near the clock, click on this and get it to check for updates, then install everything.

I recently bought this laptop direct from HP and can confirm that there aren't any apparent WiFi issues. If you're a student you can get it for £299 direct from HP's student and staff store.

A 2TB HDD instead of a smaller SSD is silly. Cheap laptops like this need all the speed they can get, and not including SSD makes this a cold deal.

Hi Guys,

The issue with the wifi is an easy fix.

1: go into the power settings and set the wifi adapter to maximum performance

2: go into device manager, Right click wifi adapter and choose to find updates online.

That solved my issues :)

I've a small (SFF) desktop with an AMD-A10. Upped the RAM to fast 32GB (I know, it's probably overkill even if these processors share RAM),and with an SSD it's blazing fast for Photoshop and Illustrator. Flies while browsing, using MS apps etc.

Just shows how inefficiently coded most modern computer applications (and Windows itself) are that you need such high performance components to achieve proper productivity. The ever increasing power of hardware breeds ever increasingly bad programmers...

Yup totally agree. Moore's law has become a self-fulfilling prophesy. Lazy programmers write bloated code that current hardware can barely handle; the next gen hardware is twice as fast and arrives just in time for the next round of bloatware. Repeat ad infinitum..

Just heads up don't bother going to the Stirling Sprinkerse Store. I reserved and arrived at the store, kept waiting for approx 25 mins while they looked for it, All 3 are on display. Offered 10% off display model, pointed out there was already 10% off nothing else offered. Brought out my trade in and was told they couldn't do it in that store and I would need to go to Falkirk (where I had come from) to do trade in. No stock in Falkirk. Waste of time. Also you can only have the trade in or 10% off.

Similar laptop on the HP site but only a 1tb drive. £349.99 but down to £314.99 with the site 10% off voucher and a further 3% off at topcashback assuming its a consumer laptop, more with a business laptop. That would take it down to about £305 approx.

http://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=N7J85EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB

I might add that I bought a laptop based on the same chipset but only a 720p screen for a lot less.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/351577791223

When I purchased it was £189.99 but the price went up to £209.99 as stock ran out.

The chipset in cpu terms is somewhere between i3 and i5 performance and for gaming performance operates at about i3 level with discrete graphics or i7 with integrated graphics.

My Toshiba performed very badly until a fresh install of windows 10 and then it became a very fast laptop. Toshiba install a huge amount of bloatware and HP might be the same. Just manages Fallout 4 at playable frame rates at native resolution and low detail.

Apologies, my mistake it appears its only for single laptop purchases over £599. It doesn't even work if you add 2 of these laptops but the code was FLASH10

All I can find is a 2% code CQ416HPAF15

Just so everyone talking about the "bad reviews" 95% are to do with a software issue with the wifi card not turning back on when comming out of sleep when battery saver mode is on, this got solved with doing updates just that 95% of customers wont do the HP background updates

As mannin said, an SSD upgrade is fairly straightforward and cheap. Trying to upgrade the built-in display is far from easy and expensive, plus you would be left with an unused display panel.

true can be headache if learning first time, also faster i5 processor depends what's important to u speed or resolution. same price currys plus you get trade in for old laptop bring price down http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-15-au074sa-15-6-laptop-silver-10146646-pdt.html

In the case of upgrading the built-in display, it's not just the learning curve - there's also the problem of sourcing the appropriate parts.

They have now dropped the price to £359.97 without the code, as its expired. I caved in and ordered one for collection tomorrow.
