Bought the 17" one week back. Good laptop. Bloated with software you don't need so clear that up. Also trackpad isn't the most responsive.
#6
Really good for a decent 15" laptop. I have a 14" Probook version and have been trying (unsuccessfully so far!) to put windows 7 on it. won't give up though!
#7
Avoid HP!! Screwed up big time twice, one of its video card gone just after 1year warranty... and other gives you shock while charging... worst hardware and full of crap software on it.
#8
Good for the price. Ordered one as a backup windows pc. Heat added
#9
Same as op. Looking at around £350 . Know nothing about computers so just comparing numbers really.was looking at acer en 572 at pc world i3/8gb/1st just reduced to £349. Would somebody care to comment on relative merits of these two. Thanks

Like OP looking at about £350. Know nothing about computers so comparing numbers really. I'd looked at pc world acer e1 572 i3/8gb/1T reduced by £50 to £349. Would someone care to comment on the relative merits of these two laptops. Thanks in advance

Sorry about double posting
#12
nice for the green conscious - lowest power i7-4th gen 17W processor coupled with low-voltage memory. whack an SSD in there and expect excellent battery life! use the 1tb as external storage in its own caddy and you have a perfect solution for general surfing, productivity and film watching.
N.B. not a gaming laptop
great brand, great price

Cheap laptops are not built to last. If you can afford it get a warranty extension. The HP £49 3 year care pack is recommended. Get a Windows 8 For Dummies book too...
e.g. http://it-ebooks.info/book/1084/

And 2 steps to Windows8 heaven:-
1. install a Start button e.g. classicshell
2. run modern (Metro) apps in a window e.g. Stardock ModernMix
And most useful shortcut? Windows key+D

Only ever owned 2 laptops, both HP, both had a big issue after a year, still using the most recent one and the fan no longer works, even after a replacement, so it over heats after about an hour of use. :(
I'd avoid HP at all costs, even though this looks like a good deal.
#17
But the Acer?

No better in my opinion. Can you get a 3 year warranty (2 year extension) for £49 with the Acer?

Out of those 2 I would say the HP, however I would recommend you keep looking around as you can get 3rd gen i5 for about the same price if you keep an eye on this site. Try to ignore anecdotes of brands e.g. my XYZ laptop exploded after 2 years avoid brand forever!

The most important questions are what are you going to be using this laptop for and what is your budget?

Also if you go to your comment and hover near the number in top right you can choose delete. ;)

Can u pls mention the specific models G62, G56,G6...etc. I know their old nVidia equipped series had GPU problems and G62s starts to overheat after some period of use.

I bought a cheap-ish HP about 18 months ago and not had a problem with it. Out of all the laptops I use it is the fastest and runs Win8 the most fluidly, but that is probably down to the SSD in it though. It's definitely faster than my Dell with an i5 and 8GB memory, but a regular hard disk.

The build quality on my HP is good enough too. I would certainly choose this brand again over the Acer. That extended warranty is good for the price, but at this lower end price point it becomes a bigger % of the overall cost. Still, I'd advise getting it. If the machine went belly up after 30 months you would happily pay 50 quid to get going again quickly.

That would have been worth chasing under SOGA.

Good deal Op and heat added.
Was comparing this laptop with the half price Sony's (mostly all gone now :( ) and the spec is more or less similar yet in some cases cheaper.

Just received my laptop with DPD. All fine and dandy so far :)

Pretty good deal on paper. Although I'm not going to disagree with some of the comments about HP being a bit shoddy especially at the budget end of the spectrum. Pavilion series used to be renown for excellent quality, seems like that's gone a bit of late.
#33
i5 > i3
Asus > Acer
Asus > HP
3 year warranty for Asus is £170; £50 for HP.

Ok, so if I want the BEST laptop one can get for £500, what do you lot suggest?
Touchscreen and OS NOT NECESSARY, as I'll be making it into a Hackintosh.
Should be 14-15" as I'd use it for Photoshop, as well as music production.
Ideally would like full HD screen, HDMI, fast CPU, light and slim and not prone to overheating, and would LOVE a full alu construction. No shiny screens, refurbs OK if they offer a substantial bang for buck hike. Battery life reasonably important but not crucial, as I'll probably use it near power points 90% of the time.
I'd be putting in a Sammy Evo 250 GB SSD if it doesn't come with one.

I found a used 3 or 4 y.o. HP Core i7, 2.1GHz that would deffo need the £85 Sammy SSD upgrade, for just £215, so effectively £300 with the new HD, BUT it's just a 12" screen... Hmmm, what to do? I guess I could get a nicer 42" telly and hook it up to that, but would it ever be an adequate substitute for a decent bigger lappy screen for Photoshop work? (Not pro work, obviously, but I am quite persnicketty).
#39
like others have said I'd avoid HP like the plague. I've still got one but it's on its last legs. fan is utterly terrible I need a cooler on it constantly and build quality is poor.
