Ultrabooks generally don't go down well on here.

Unless the laptop is a monster spec plastic gaming laptop or a sub £300 normal laptop then it will be cold I'm afraid.
Also spectre x360 as nice as it is generally doesn't fare to well against the Dell XPS13 which is a popular option with the odd HUKD visitor who does understand ltrabooks...

Not posting this as a deal because it's a refurb with 3 month warranty (deal breaker for some) but the following model is the top end version (i7, Quad HD, 512gb SSD, 8gb) which HP sell for 1099

http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/hewlett-packard-a1-refurbished-hp-13-4109na-i7-6500u-8gb-512gb-ash-win-10-l-a1-p5p13ea/version.asp

719.98 - in stock

Hope this helps someone

Ultrabooks are great for their portability etc... But in reality there is very little justifying a purchase of one. If you really need a fast processor on the go the mobile U versions are not fast enough and you are looking at the HQ or QM or however the 4 core mobile ones are called these days. They also lack a dedicated graphics card which makes them virtually useless for gaming.

All in all I struggle to find what a "high - end" ultrabook offers to anyone compared to ultrabooks at 400-500£, for 99% of the stuff people do they won't be faster. They feel a lot like, "I have the money and want a powerful laptop because I think I do, but in reality I don't". The only exception being XPS 13 which offers a great screen and smaller footprint than any of the competition, but even that I don't find to be worth it.

So I can understand what a big fat gaming laptop at 900£ plus is used for - gaming, I can understand what a decent sub 300£ is used for - browsing, office, etc. I can even understand what a 400-500£ ultrabook is used for - same as sub 300£ just carried around more.

But for ultrabooks of 700£ or more I fail to see the point. So I feel like most people are paying a lot more and not getting the value which makes most of these deals instant cold in my eyes, even if they are good price compared to what they usually cost.

It's a case of each to their own. The HP is a 2-in-1 - easily used as a tablet. The screen (also the touch aspect) is fantastic and they have not skimped out on it. Also the all-aluminium chassis gives it a very premium feel. As good as the XPS 13 is, it can only be used in laptop mode.

Yeah I would go for a XPS 13 too. Can't justify spending £800+ for it though which is why between paying so £400 for your average 15.6" i5, 8GB RAM, crappy HDD laptop, and not buying a new laptop, I've decided to not have a new laptop. Not a fan of lugging around a 2kg+ machine nor am I fan of carrying those cheap useless £150 13.3" machines with a celeron CPU, 2GB RAM and 64GB eMMC storage.

Still rocking my Samsung NP540U3C which I picked up on eBay for £200 then stuck a 250GB Samsung 840 Evo in. The 1366x768 TN panel is horrible though which is why I usually just use my tablet if I leave the house and need to go online with a bigger screen than my phone and when I am at home I just use my desktop. It's funny how £150 tablets nowadays can fit a 1080p screen in, yet most laptops below £400 cannot.

I really wish I could get something like this or the XPS 13 for around £400. I.e. i5 5th/6th gen, 8GB RAM, 240GB HDD, 13.3" 1080p screen and 1.3kg or lighter whilst also being less than 2cm thick.

everyone hopes or wishes for such good price, but they got to sell 15" heavy laptops for £400 price ( currys had 4 types of models for 399), and charge premium for smaller, portable laptops with x360 functions which are less than 1.5 kg

I am not disputing the build quality/premium feel or functionality in terms of laptop+tablet, it is a great device, simply overpriced imo.

You might want to consider a Lafite II at pc.co.uk , they do some great machines and a couple of my friends went with Lafite and are supper happy with it.

For example you can get for 432£:
Aluminium chasing,
Full HD IPS 1080p (a very very good one),
i3-6100U, (add 53£ for i5-6200U)
128GB M.2 SSD (add 18£ for "super fast" samsung SM951 128GB, definitely worth it, add another 38£ for 256GB SM951 which is even faster)
Intel AC wireless (rather than broadcom trash you find in most laptops)
Backlit keyboard
4GB of RAM (add 18£ for 8GB, not worth it, Amazon is cheaper)
1.42kg (but actually less if you only have m.2 ssd)
1 year collect and return warranty) and
no OS (you can add windows for 80£ if you don't already have a license, are not happy with getting it elsewhere or not paying anything... you can find genuine Windows 7 cds/keys for 15-25£ on eBay).

You can also save and reuse you samsung ssd if you so desire.

So taking an i5 with 256GB SM951 ebay Windows and extra 4GB of ram from Amazon costs you 520£. But imo that i3 is going to be plenty powerful enough and I really fail to see a usage scenario where you would be better of with an i5 than an i3, i5 is the "sweet spot" for gaming not general usage these days, most people would even do perfectly fine with the Pentium 4405U they offer (that Pentium is virtually the same as the i3 without some more software based tweaks and improvements, it is not an Atom based slow Pentium)

I really like the site and all the various options you can choose from, hope it helps.

Also the zenbook Ux305 from currys/john Lewis for 500-ish is a decent option. (Although an m5 rather than i5 but I believe that m5 is plenty powerful enough.)

I would never pay this much for an HP Laptop, I have have seen plenty of high end HP laptops die premature deaths. I have yet to see a Dell expire. I appreciate that others may have different experiences, but I am very happy with my XPS 13, and my daughter is happy with my previous one.

Thanks.

Managed to get it even cheaper still:
£402 for:
i3-6100U
8GB RAM (I think it's just one stick so you can't just add 4GB)
No drives
AC-3160
No OS

Add OS + my drive and it's not bad value I guess. Very tempting but I'll just hold out as I rarely need a laptop. Can do most of what I need on a phone and tablet nowadays as work provides a laptop if I have to travel and if I'm travelling for none work related purposes then I don't expect to be doing work!

For anyone considering a premium ultrabook do consider the recently launched Razer stealth. I have been looking at Mac book pro alternatives and this one fits the bill nicely for me. Just not available in UK just yet but I will have somebody buy it for me in the US for £700.

Yeah it is tempting me for a long while now :), they do occasionally have some voucher deals. (They had 15% off site wide long time ago and 15£ off recently, I don't think I will resist if they do something like 15% again...)

Unfortunately though, they don't let you order without a drive, it will break if you try to go to the actual order page. So you need to take something and the difference between cheapest hard drive and m.2 ssd is not worth it. (You could in theory resell whatever you buy, but even then I think the sm951 is the best deal for the money you can get, they don't even charge more than amazon for them).

It has 2 Sodimm slots so you can add another 4GB stick. (even though they don't sell in pairs for some reason...), also since it is 6th gen you can add ddr4 ram sticks for what that is worth :)

Yeah stealth is great for someone who likes to game and to have a very mobile device, it gives sort of best of both worlds, but in reality if you already have a powerful pc at home you can just use steam in home streaming instead and if you will lug the external graphics with you, you might just as well lug a gaming laptop. I can see it having some uses, but not in my case and if you can pick one up for 700£ that is a good deal I guess.

I am looking at the stealth purely as an ultrabook. It doesn't have any gaming specific features apart from the colourful keyboard.

again stealth priced $1000 for QHD version and with import charges would easily shoot above £1000 with still international warranty questions..

True. Hopefully they will officially launch it in the UK at a sensible price.

I have that exact model MBPr, Came out at £950 form the Apple Higher Education store (surely everyone knows a student who's discount you can use (_;) ) also includes 3yrs Applecare warranty.
No it's no gaming machine but the build quality is sublime. Battery life is nigh on 10hrs and I think it's been rebooted 3 times in the 6 mths since I've owned it...
Easily the best laptop I've ever owned (and after 20+yrs working in enterprise IT I've used a lot)
