Great deal if your looking for a budget laptop with decent spec. £319 reduced from £469. Use code 3YGEU at checkout for further £10 making this £309 for existing customers. You can also get it free delivery if you use the collect+ service from your local collection point and what's even better is that it qualifies for 12 months interest free option.

For New customers opening a Very account, you can get a 10% discount on your first order using code 4JLNY at checkout making this £287.10. If this code does not work with sale item you can also use 4KMY4 £30 off £60 spend which would make it £289

I know Currys are doing a better spec on the HP Pavilion for £399 for the i5 1.5TB 8mb ram version, but for the price difference you can't go wrong and I'm sure it will be beneficial to somebody.

Does anyone know what the actual model number is?

How does HP compare to Acer? This is the sort of spec I was looking for but what about quality?

( I have been looking at Acer Extensa http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/331424772293?_mwBanner=1 to replace my dying pc).

Have never been totally reliant on a laptop previously and am a bit wary of losing the familiarity of separate components but space and budget suggest this would be my best option now. I'd prefer solid feel to easily portable!

Not into gaming. Predominently need computer for browsing, office work and storage, some photo editing, music and DVDs

Interest free off very or take 3 will make this a better option than the currys one imo

Avoid an i3....build quality is well 'budget'.

I would avoid intel celeron and go for an i3 intel core instead. The i5 is obviously better than the i3 but will cost you more. Avoid i3? Unless your an expert for that comment these are the dual core processors and rated better than the intel pentium versions so i3 still better in my opinion. As stated i5 and i7 are much better and faster, but will cost you more depending on your budget. When we talk about build quality its actually refering to make and brand of product not the software or processor in this case its HP and a decent looking laptop. Hope that helps!

an i3 is more than sufficient for every day tasks like web/office/casual streaming

I got the HP Pavillion 1.5TB i5 deal in Currys 10 days ago for £399. Hell of a machine. Super fast and hopefully last a bit longer than the last HP I had 3 years ago.

i got that same i5 ,1.5 tb currys deal too, love it.

Just built a desktop pc with an i3 in for my sister, am amazed how fast the i3 is. Its a fast chip, ok not up to the gaming i5 or gaming and video editing i7 standards but great for web browsing/watching videos and playing low spec games :-)

Sorry, voted cold. Anything that uses Very codes often involves clawback and credit accounts.

Thereby making it a very average price for an older i3.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Budget is an E series AMD, an A4 or a low-end Celeron.
For what most people use a laptop for, an i3 is more than adequate. It will happily run youtube videos, documents, internet/facebook games and stream stuff.

In terms of modern processors, even with Intel, it's a mid-spec processor.
i7 > i5 > i3 > Celeron > Atom

I agree with this, I bought an i3 because that's what I could afford at the time but I wanted a i5 at least but my i3 has a processor speed of 2.4GHz its generally fast but over the last month or 2 its really slowed down (I'm working to fix it)... with this specific laptop, it looks amazing in terms of the specs BUT I don't like the fact the processor is less than 2GHz I can't imagine it will stay fast in the long term

But to second what was said, I'd stay away from Intel Celeron and preferably look for something i5/i7 if its in your budget but i3 is fine for everyday tasks

not all i3's are created equally and some are faster than some i5's and the implementation has as much to do with speed as the processor

Not bad to say the seller is very as they usually bump about 50% on the retail price.

Great deal for this price. Ignore the crazies who say the processor is super low-end. It's pretty decent and here's the benchmark figures:

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i3-4030U+%40+1.90GHz

The Curries i5 deal on HUKD here is clearly better. It benchmarks significantly faster, as it has a 60% higher clock rate at full turbo rate compared with the i3, which largely contributes to the 60% better performance. However, with almost twice the power consumption you'll pay for it with either extra weight, lower battery life, a warmer lap or whatever.

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-4288U+%40+2.60GHz

And ignore the Very naysayers too. Just don't apply vouchers that you're not entitled to and you'll be fine. If you do, then you have a good chance of getting away with it, but then again you can't blame yourself if they remove the discount that you've unfairly tried to apply.

Good deal all round OP. Sure, I'd rather have the i5, but for 3/4 of the price, this is a fine deal. The interest-free credit may be attractive to some people too.

Just be careful with HP. I bought a new laptop directly from them 2 years ago and it was the biggest mistake. Within 2 weeks the whole thing stopped working. Their support was awful, I had an IT friend look at it and they told me it was the GPU that had broke somehow, I told HP and they insisted on sending me replacement RAM which anybody could tell you was not the problem. I then had to wait a month or so while they sent me RAM, took my laptop to properly fix it, then return me a brand new one (which took a lot of arguing down the phone). When I got my new one, within a couple of months it was overheating really really bad and turning itself off. Then the screen stopped working. They took it in for repair and did some basic fixes, but within a month or so the problems were back. By this point, I had important Uni work to do and couldn't afford to lose the laptop for repairs, so I asked them to extend it as a gesture of goodwill for all my problems. They said no. When I finished my Uni work, the only way I could use the laptop was with an external monitor. I did that for a few weeks until I got sick of it and I began hounding them on social media demanding they fix my laptop outside of warranty, after a lot of phone calls, social media messages and the like, I got a phone call from someone high up asking me to stop posting messages and they would fix my laptop, which I agreed.

They took it off me, fixed it, then lo and behold within a month, the screen was hanging on by one hinge, then after a week or so after that, the whole thing broke and I can't use it at all. Will be selling for scrap when I get the chance.

Great comparison and summary for both spec which is very useful

Completely agree, we had to return our HP within a month but they refused to refund the whole cost price. Wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.

Have bought a few of these for office use and whilst the i3 isn't the fastest in the world is perfectly adequate for general browsing, office etc.

They dont come with a standard monitor port just HDMI but you can get a convertor for about a fiver on amazon.

All in all for the price a decent spec laptop.

expired now

I ordered one of these on 30 December, my laptop having expired a few days earlier. Even with the holiday coming up, I assumed I would receive my laptop by 4 January. On checking on 6 January, I was told by a rude VERY agent that the date had always been 8 January as it was coming from the manufacturer. I hadnt noticed this date at the time of booking but had to accept it. (I would have bought from elsewhere had I known). 6pm on 8 January still no sign of laptop. I logged into my VERY account where they have simply changed the delivery date to 16 January... if you can trust them not to keep doing this. Nearly three weeks is scandalous and is terrible service. I cancelled the order and last night I ordered a refurb Lenovo recommended on here and tracking and text say I will receive it tomorrow.
