Wireless HP A3 Inkjet Printer £74.99 3 year warranty £50 after cashback at PC World Instore

I've been looking for an edge to edge (no white borders) A3 printer for a while and this fitted the bill on an unbelievable budget. The box is deceivingly large - it's a big printer but for an A3 is p…

That seems a good deal - voted hot. It is the same price at John Lewis and in stock for delivery.

Cheers,

Ian.
I bought this printer a couple of weeks ago from Staples in Swindon. They had a shelf price of £149.95.... However, they do a "price match plus 10%. Given PC World (2 doors down) were doing this printer for £74.99 (and Staples themselves were doing it for £74.99 on their website!!!) ...... this meant I got the printer for £74.99..... less another £7.49.... PLUS £25 cash back from HP!! A great printer for just £42.50 :-)

Asus ZenPad Z580C 8" Tablet (updates to Marshmallow) 32GB £149.99 at PC World

Was looking at how much the 32GB version is as disappointingly I'm busting the gut of my 16GB one. Was very happy to find this for this price - not least as it's still around £150 most other places -

Perfect, like a previous poster mentioned my current Asus first gen tab just decided to melt on me. It's been on its way out for a while but what a way to go. Time for an upgrade, picking it up tomorrow :D

I find it bizarre people having this kind of problem. But then I was used to seeing similar - people claiming their Philips MP3 players "stopped working after a day" or they "couldn't put any songs on it" - mine has been going for years and years and years now and never had a problem. But then again I suppose the Moto G4 fans would bawk at my experience of plugging it into the wall to charge it, and after 4 hours of charging it had gone from 10% to 11%.


​I wouldn't have believed it either had it not been on my lap. Plugged it in to charge and started smelling burning. Looked down to see the charge port actually visibly smoking. Melted the charge port and my 3m micro USB cable. I'm more upset at the cable to be fair, 1m cables just aren't enough these days.

was going to get this until i realised there is an updated version.
That's twice the price. I can't really justify £300 for a tablet.
true but i can't bring myself to buy something "outdated" :(
It isn't outdated. Let alone having the Marshmallow update, there were tablets released after this one with lesser spec. So chronology isn't very relevant.
yeah hence the quotes. it's fine but if there's a later one...i want that

Get it, enjoy, wait for the newer one to drop...?

Is there a better deal for someone who doesn't want Division, Rainbow Six or Quantum Break(Argos deal) ?
This offer gives a choice at least, and the price isn't bad for what your getting. Controller alone is £40

Yes buy one of those deals and sell the game codes you don't want on eBay, the Curry's one give you limited choice of some pretty old games and forces a second controller on you. The controller is £35.

What's the best deal please on simply games ? The 1tb with division one for 189.99 or the 1tb with rainbow six with head set for 209.99?
For my sons and want to get the best deal thanks if anyone can help.

If he needs a chat headset the official one is just under £16 from simply games so the difference in price will be £4 so it really depends if he wants either game.

Which are now, obviously, reserved.
How do you do that since local numbers are not listed? oO
Just type it into google.
For example, my local pcworld is in 'Saint Georges Retail Park' Google it and it will give you a number. If it is not the correct store, ask them to redirect you or you could just ask if they can see stock in any other pcworlds close to you.

New MACs incoming, don't buy this...
I'm not a fan of Apple, but you can't nock the build, design and battery life of these laptops... No windows laptops come anywhere close.
I disagree. Posted from my Dell laptop, now in it's sixth year with zero repairs.
Where did I say about reliability? Windows laptops are reliable. But does your laptop look great, lightweight and have an 8 hour battery life? Certainly not.

My Dell XPS exceeds 8 hours, more like 11.
Skymonkey

The one thing that would put me off buying another Mac is the lack of being able to upgrade RAM and HDD and even the battery in order to extend the life of the mac. It's just made so difficult now days but they are definitely a piece of design and beauty.

I agree, this is just one more way of closing off the upgrade path, and keeping the cash pile growing in house. Then again, they have to take the come back if something goes wrong, rather than having to chase a third party supplier.

Acquired a light usage 2012 quad core Mac Mini server recently, and that's still upgradeable over the 2014 models. Seems to run MacOS Sierra just fine. Even got an old G5 Mac Pro waiting to be tinkered with that I got for £10 on Facebook. Should do as a general server with some extra bits and an old version of OS X Server.

I made the same mistake when I posted this yesterday. Unfortunately only one of those offers (I.e £50 or 10% not both) can be used if you read the terms & conditions of each. So not quite the deal it first seems.
Would love to hear about people's thoughts / opinion / experience on this
Click on the offer of Save £50 and take a look at the last sentence 'Not available in conjunction with any other offer' Certainly no ambiguity there.
OK, I still disagree (_;) The £50 off is instantaneous and at checkout. So you immediately receive your discount. The 10% is claimed 21-60 days later and really that is the deal that should say 'not to be used in conjunction with any other offer', and it doesn't say that. If you think about it at the point you take the £50 discount you have not opted to take another offer and cannot in fact process the 10% offer for a minimum of 21 days after receipt of purchase. I took other offers to mean the other 'at purchase' codes eg £60 of McRubbish virus checker etc. We'll probably disagree, but that's my stance for moi, although I ain't buying that laptop!

Oh yes, noted the cashback was on a Mastercard, seems to be the new way now...
I sold my MacBook Air for a Surface Pro 3 earlier this year and it was a massive mistake. Baring in mind they are the same spec, the Surface is awfully underpowered in comparison, runs hot, makes a lot of noise and can barely run 2 programs at once... The battery lasts half the time. It is constantly updating, constantly freezing, programs shutting down etc.

Macs just work. OK, program compatibility can be a bit of hassle, but other than that it's great. Also, Android phones don't play well with them - for obvious reasons.

Couldn't see any wording supporting this...
Click on the Save £50 offer and the last sentence is 'Not available in conjunction with any other offer' That will therefore allow them to refuse your claim on the 10% cash back.

Cheaper at Apple with 15% off NUS discount and 3 years worldwide Apple warranty.
unfortunately you are wrong on both counts now!
1. It is only 10% max and depends on the product (annoying but ok)
2. They have removed the extra 2 years cover (totally annoying!)
It is still a good but nowhere near as good as before! Still at least I got my iPad Pro with free beats last week before they put all the prices in the UK up via Apple direct!

The nearest one to me is in Barrow-In-Furness. I have never been there and while it looks very nice in Google maps I can't really justify the 200 mile round trip for a monitor. Hopefully someone more local will find it useful. Seems a good deal otherwise so I am voting hot.

128GB for £22 too
Now that's what I'm talking about! Bought one of these the other day to use in my car. HOT!
Just what I was after - ordered two 32Gb ones with free next day tracked delivery.
Thanks OP!
I bought the 32gb from Amazon on Saturday. Slightly cheaper using prime but only by 4p. I also have the Ultra USB 3 Dual with standard type A and type B. Don't wast your money on the Dual, it's rubbish in comparison with the model posted. I rarely get usb 2 speed with it and will be returning it to Argos when I find the receipt. Not sure if it's faulty but it rarely connects now to my usb port and after checking the port with another flash drive it's fine so obviously the stick is faulty.

Just tx no numbers ie Logitech 920
I've got the g920 with the playseat challenge and very happy with it playing project cars and forza. never tried the tx so can't comment on that. I was lucky enough to get the g920 from curry's for £89 using a Logitech code lol. so for that price I'm obviously feeling I got allot for my money
I have a G920 and to be honest can't fault it. there was an issue a while back which basically crashed the OS but this was caused by a windows update. This was fixed and it's been fine ever since. (I paid £99 too but we don't all have a time machine ;-) )
I bought the G920 when it was on sale last week for £130 and it was so disappointing, I'm returning it. The clutch pedal made a really irritating squeaking noise and I couldn't make the wheel functional currently with any of my games it would just spin around randomly making a grinding noise. And the logitech software was next to useless as it's missing profiles for really obvious games like the F1 games and NHS Shift.

I highly recommend making a recovery disk. My new 6700k system with SSDs had to be recovered after a fatal Windows 10 crash. Was this an isolated incident specific to SSDs????
My old HP laptop running Windows 10 on a HDD also crashed last week ("files damaged" message) at POST. Which also had to be recovered/rebuilt from recovery disk.....

So, are these isolated incidents? Has anyone else had their "new" Windows 10 build fatally crash within a year????

I can categorically state that my Windows 7 installation on the old HP never fatally crashed in all the years it was used. Try telling that to Microsoft....As an "insider" I often wonder if it is a waste of time reporting bugs!!!! Same goes for AMD GPUs!!!! Waste of bloody time!
JaneEB
Just one thing - if you need it for Windows 10 recovery then you need a bigger one, Recovery says you need 16GB but it is a "different" 16 GB than this, Windows uses a different measurement than producers of USB sticks. There are two different versions of a GB, Windows uses the larger one and the USB sticks use the smaller one.
Hi JaneEB, thanks for the info. I've used my sticks for two different Windows 10 PCs to create a recovery drive for each, both worked without problems. The first saved only 4.27GB (W10 upgraded from W7) and the second used 11.2GB (new laptop, OEM installed).

I did some searching and "Saltgrass" on windows10forums said "Now a Recovery Drive reconstructs your current basic windows 10 install which gives you the ability to recover the system back to a original state at the time the drive was made. No personal files will be recovered. If you have an OEM system, or at least a newer one which came with Windows 10 installed, the software they originally provided will also be reinstalled." This explains the variability in sizes.

Microsoft recommend "... typically 3 to 6 GB in size" and Microsoft answers show all the screens you'll see. You can follow the process on your own PC until you see the screen which tells you to choose a USB stick as it will also tell you the exact size needed for your own PC. £4.99 for a little more peace of mind :)

Until you get to "Prices for the Acer Chromebook R13 will start at $400 for the 16GB memory option."
Yeah, I saw that price too. If the reviews are good, I'll think hard about getting it. About 90% of my surfing is done on a CB.
I wonder if this AO1 will run the Remix os?

Pity Toshiba's 1080p chromebook vanished
Gets a panning in the reviews. For example: http://www.trustedreviews.com/acer-aspire-one-cloudbook-14-review

"The main Windows desktop runs fine, so loading the Start menu and moving files around isn't a problem – but most applications show a frustrating amount of lag. Web browsing should be this laptop’s forte, but websites are unusably slow in Firefox, and only slightly better in Chrome.

Microsoft’s Edge browser is better, but still pauses when scrolling around web pages whilst images pop into place, and it even takes a couple of seconds to close a tab. In Microsoft Word, there’s a significant delay between clicking on each item in the ribbon and seeing the changes take place."


Windows simply does not run well with this sort of spec. This sort of machine is just a waste of money.
2gig ram not ideal for even multiple open tabs in browser. Best look for more Ram, I added Arch arm Linux to my Chromebook and it runs super smashing from the microsd card.

Until you get to "Prices for the Acer Chromebook R13 will start at $400 for the 16GB memory option."
Yeah, I saw that price too. If the reviews are good, I'll think hard about getting it. About 90% of my surfing is done on a CB.

I wonder if this AO1 will run the Remix os?

For basic web browsing, word processing, etc. this is just perfect at this price. Why spend more? To do what?
Parents laptop with w10 and same benchmark score as this is painfully slow just booting up or connecting to the internet and everything takes ages to update,although its only switched on once a week.
So what i would do is spend more around £250 and get an i3 that will perform far better compared to this.
I have one too - it's not the CPU that's the issue for browsing / word and such, it's the utterly rubbish hard drives they put in them. One I replaced with a SSD is fine now for my mum.
It's not a fast CPU for sure, but you shouldn't be seeing painfully slow boots from it once you have a decent disk in there.
For sure a SSD will improve speeds but that's more expense again,,but my I5 Laptop with a cpu score of 3900 compared to this with 1000 is in a different league,so the cpu has a great effect as well.
Just my 2p worth,but I would look for an i3 for about £250 which would have a cpu score around 3 times this :)
Of course ian i5 is in a different league, look at the price difference.
Also, look at CPUBoss: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i3-4010U-vs-Intel-Celeron-N2840
The i3 for that price will be a U series, which is not even close to being 3 times as powerful unless you're throwing very specific benchmarks at it. It's certainly not 3 times faster in day to day tasks a laptop like this will handle.
I understand what you're getting at - it's a low end CPU for sure, but you're talking about spending 40% of the product price on top of this, to get performance which isn't going to translate to browsing and Word in that way.
Theres this one,although £80 more http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/dell-vostro-3558-core-i3-5005u-2ghz-4gb-500gb-15.6-inch-windows-10-professi-0n8kd/version.asphttps://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i3-5005U+%40+2.00GHz which is nearly three times as fast.
All things are relative though like buying cars,spend more get a better/faster car.
Absolutely irrelevant. Either post a deal for the same price or cheaper with better performance.
Yes it won't rip the skin of a rice pudding. However it will work and will allow people to use the Internet. It won't run Crysis and photo editing would be painful. Netflix/Amazon Prime will be fine.
PC World have at least gone sensible, finally, by tagging it social. It's for Daftbook and other such social media.
As for only £80. If that was a car you'd be going from £18,000 to £26,000 which is not viable for many. The same old argument crops up for every PC deal, oh spend a little more they say. It's only £20 here, 30 quid there. It all adds up.
Not irrelevant at all,useful information for others to make their mind up on the pitfalls of such a slow cpu, might as well get an £100 Tab which will have the same cpu speed as this,this day and age there is no need to still make shabby laptops like this even at this price,just false economy,get a Tab instead if all you want to do is browse the internet and go on face book :)
Please oh wise Sage, where can I buy a 15.6" Tablet with keyboard? My eyes aren't what they used to be. The biggest tablet I know of is a 12" iPad Pro, is that the same price? I could buy a tablet and HDMI lead but the TV won't work on the train. Keyboards are cheap but I'd probably forget to take it with me to the Library.

The guy bigdeal66 is speed obsessed. Boy racer methinks. CPU Score means feck all in a laptop like this. Laptop users generally only need a laptop like this. Any more powerful CPU, graphics, etc. are totally irrelevant. I talk from very many years of experience. Being building and using computers for over 30 years.
Just get a Tab then for a lot less ?
WTF. Are you a glue sniffing boy racer?

pc world logoPC World – Technology Trader for More Than 20 Years

Expansion into Europe followed in subsequent years. Major milestones in PC World’s journey include ‘The Connected Home’ PC and home entertainment service in 2006 and the launch of 2-in-1 Currys PC World megastores around Britain, in partnership with well-known retailer Currys.
