2.3% Topcashback too.

In my experience, HP business laptops are reliable but home laptops tend to experience problems and can have relatively noisy fans. I presume from the 'pro' this is more aimed at business so might be okay. Overall a pretty good deal on the face of it if you don't mind a 14" screen rather than 15.6".

ProBook is the cheapest business range similar to a Dell Vostro or a Lenovo Thinkpad L or E range.

The hardware manual doesn't say the M.2 is optional so it should be on all of them. The two official HP part numbers are a 256GB drive (826393-00) and a 128GB drive (826392-00) which both seem to be 80mm which is good and from the NBC review:
http://www.notebookcheck.net/HP-ProBook-440-G3-Notebook-Review.156151.0.html
it seems to have the thread for the 42mm size too. (But not 60mm from the look of it.)
EDIT: Crucial also list 2280 M.2 drives on their page:

Good deal during rising prices; 3 year warranty is worth about £50; may be worth taking a picture of the screen if you buy just to ensure that its not an error ; part number X0Q83ES#BUN is consistent across the BT sites to include the 3 year warranty.

TN Panel :(

I really need a Windows 7 laptop that I could dual boot W8.1 on. Would this fit the bill or does anyone know of anything cheaper? I prefer something new rather than a refurb.

It seems hard to find W7 laptops now (except for really expensive ones or really old refurbs).

I've seen ones like this but I heard bad stuff about HP so wasn't sure:

http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/hp-250-g5-core-i3-5005u-2ghz-4gb-500gb-dvd-rw-15.6-inch-windows-7-professio-w4m90ea/version.asp

I have a W10 PC from the Dell outlet and am very happy with it and would buy another one but they only seem to do W10 laptops now so it's too late for a W7 one it seems.

I know they are cheaper but they also use less power than IPS screens. It's not as if this is a gaming machine.

What?
A gaming machine would have a TN panel for fast response times. That's the argument thrown around anyway.
Not that I'd accept that as an excuse to use a **** poor panel type in anything you have to look at for extended periods of time.

Cheaper yes, use less power? I suppose they have dimmer backlights with worse colour space coverage and hence they consume less but how much power are we talking here?

I can see why they've gone with a TN panel but it's still disappointing in an age when even a £50 tablet gets an IPS display. The thing I spend 95% of my time doing with a laptop is looking at the display so make it a nice one!
#9
You can still get good high-contrast TN panels as well as poor IPS panels. I would say resolution is more important than anything else on a non-gaming machine but I guess that can differ for others.
#11
Good price, I jsut want a 15" screen though so it jus falls short for me spec wise. Oh and want backlit keyboard too, so close.

TN is better for gaming anyway, much faster than IPS

I have this laptop, the ssd is m2 however you can add a 2.5 inch drive but you need to buy a adapter for it.

Only if you play a lot of FPS, plus there are now 100hz+ IPS. Would rather have the higher IQ myself.

What about this, I know its not full HD but it has a larger screen and newer series of i3. The 10% off would pay for 3 year warranty. http://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=Z5D61EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB

Cost isn't an object for true PCMR. Yes TN is cheaper but for those wanting the best of the best I'd be personally going IPS GSYNC monintor all day.

Well both of those are consumer laptops whereas this is a business one. So more serviceable which is nice. Think the 250 G5 uses a chassis not to dissimilar to this or an EliteBook (but not as strong) whereas Pavilion looks less durable.

My mum's been after a new laptop for a few weeks but there haven't been many deals around lately, anyone got a recommendation?

I want 15.6", 1080, preferably SSD though I'll swap out if necessary. Processor not too important, she's no gamer :p

1.7kg I believe.
As for the other laptops people have shown, this one is lighter, arguably better looking, 15" is a bit bulky for my liking, find 13/14in a better size for moving round with.

My i7 640 is falling to bits. It's lived on a dock for most of its two years, but the lower panel doesn't stay attached, and the screen bezel is coming away on the lower right corner - coincidentally where the fan/heatsink is when the machine is run closed. In the BIOS it's set to fan always on when on A/C so should really be OK being run closed.

The older 84** Elitebooks were like tanks but seemed a lot more robust.

What is supposed to contradict what I said? Don't tell me Reddit users are some kind of authority X)

Caste system within a caste system, 1440p+ IPS or bust. Anyway this is off topic, IPS > TN, cost isn't a factor, plus you said TN was 'faster' which in itself was wrong. End of.

Not a fan of the mobile i3s but for 8gb of ram a 250gb ssd and a 1080p screen this looks like a good buy especially as it is a 14" form factor.

There seems to be 2 options one with Win10 Pro and this one that says Win7 Pro but then Win10 Pro in description, prices are different (not much) and the Win10 version only had 1 left? Could this be Win7 with an upgrade option?

The other option is more and doesn't come with the 3 year warranty.

It's not clear if it's 7 or 10, but maybe it's 10 with an option to change to 7..

You're the reason people play games on consoles instead of joining the PCMR, just so you know.

Being snobby about parts/other people's rigs is literally the opposite of the PCMR ethos.

We must read different internets. Ethos? Get real. As long as people have fun that is all that matters though.

I still have my HP ProBook 4530s that I bought via HUKD back in 2012. Hackintoshed since day 1 and still works beautifully.

Anyone know if this model can be hackintoshed ?

But are you talking about HP consumer or business class?
ProBook, EliteBook and ZBook are a bit different than some cheaply made Pavilion. Obviously the quest for 'ever thinner' hasn't help longevity (thanks Apple!), but the older pre-Haswell Elitebook (8470p for instance) were build like a tank making ThinkPad T's look flimsy.
The HP Pavilion DV6000 series on the other hand were some of the most unreliable laptops ever made. Yes, they had the unforeseen bad luck of using those Nvidia chips with the solder defects (bumpgate), but their cooling was so bad that they were probably the first lot to fail due Nvidia's incompetence.

They are also the biggest seller right? Almost like there is some kind of correlation there.
