Abdolute garbage spec for that price. Who made this the best 200+ deal????

Cashback from hp? Looks like you can trade in an old laptop or tablet but not cashback.
Edited by: "BigBuds" 1st Oct 2016

* The maximum reward available is capped at 50% of the total invoice purchase price of Qualifying Products regardless of the reward advertised.

How do you get £300?
Capped at 50%?

If the deal is £206 what other laptop even comes close to these specs or quality.

Stop making up "BEST XXX Deal titles please". This is getting worse than people who start their posts with "It's back!".

Has this model got a built in calculator,
Yes,
Then maybe this is the one for you so you can work out exactly how much you've paid for it!

If I'm reading this right the laptop is £506 50% of this would leave £253 for trading in a laptop or tablet - £13.50 topcasback leaving a balance of £240 so no idea how you got £206

thanks & corrected

Don't like the small print for the trade in, you need to be precise and check every detail, guess you couldn't return the laptop if they refused to honour the deal due to a discrepancy.

Definitely a trade in deal, please make this clear. However yet to see a trade in deal to this value so heat from me (eg PC World doing one up to £200 depending on processor).

"Q. What trade-in devices qualify for this promotion?
A. For trade-in devices to qualify for the promotion it must be:

A Laptop (minimum 10” screen size), Tablet (minimum 9” screen size) or Desktop.
Fully operational, complete and undamaged.
No more than 7 years old.
Complete with a working battery and power supply where applicable (not desktops.)"

...No more than 7 years old....



Damn! I'll have to stick with my BBC Micro for a bit longer, I suppose

Small print also says for Businesses or Organisations, I wonder how fussy they might be if an individual tried to pretend they were a business, for example they might require proof, Vat number, Partnership details??

It's not difficult to meet HP's requirements on the trade in - hundreds of HUKD-ers have already done this without any problems. Basically it just has to be a properly working model with power supply.

And HP are quick to respond with approval in principle emails - so you could - if you are a worrier - keep your new laptop unopened & just return it to the supplier if you were turned down, which is not just unlikely but nearly impossible if you meet the simple written requirements in my link.

All of us here are sole traders if we feel like being a sole trader - it's just a personal choice & no need to notify HMRC or supply any evidence to HP.

Think you would struggle sending the item back if the trade in fails.
Yes HP are quick at replying to confirm your tradein but you then have to send the trade in device which will take at least a couple of days. Then the recycling company who inspect the trade in device takes up to 30 days to report back to HP.

This is the risky bit as they can report back that the device doesn't match the requirements. I.e it's older than 7 years (it can be tricky to find the exact age of a PC). Then you will receive less cash back or possibly nothing.

It's a risk but if it works it's great! I just received £900 back from them

It's crap not laptop anyway

​Its not £206 though is it

So it's a fancy case with average processor, minimum ram, minimum storage, without full HD. Not your best. And never worth near the full price.

I'm not too sure I'd class this deal as 'decent' , its gotten extremely chilly in here ......

"BEST £200+ LAPTOP DEAL ON HUKD", yet currently at -284 degrees? Methink the OP slightly deluded...

I don't think OP understands that it is the HUKD community decides if is the best laptop by voting it hot, that is kind of the point. It's just plain stupid to put that wording in the title.

Not really.
The thing is on HUKD, quality is usually ignored. While HP's ProBooks are not as good their EliteBook range, these are still business grade machines so should not be compared to the plastic consumer-grade junk which can usually be bought at this price. Also, a lot of people get hung up on the i3 - mainly because of the reputation of i3s vs i5s on desktop processors - but forget that i3 vs i5 doesn't mean much with laptops:
laptop i3 = dual core plus Hyperthreading (2C/4T)
laptop i5 = dual core plus Hyperthreading plus turbo (2C/4T)
laptop i7 = dual core plus Hyperthreading plus turbo plus more cache (2C/4T)
(caveat: some i7s are actually quad core plus Hyperthreading (4C/8T), and Intel now has some laptop i5 which are quad core (but drop the Hyperthreading))

Yes, it takes a long time.


From purchase to receive cashback from HP, normally takes slightly over 3 months.

I have done it many times as well. Never been refused though.

I think OP is saying make the decision of whether to return it at the time when HP approves or reject your application. Actual result from inspecting your old device takes more than a month which will be too late.

From past experience, if you adhere all requirements regarding your old device, you will get your cashback.



Now, I normally buy a cheapest 9 inch tablet from amazon for trade in. I used to buy Nook HD+ which is way more expensive.

you totally missed the point: HP don't give a monkey's about anything you said, they don't ask for any kind of evidence about this being a business purchase

OK this trade-in deal looks like it might be up my street - I'm looking for a solid, well built, 'sensible' laptop that's got a good keyboard and trackpad.

I like the fact this has an M.2 slot for SSD expansion - dumb question, but if I was to add an SSD, could I transfer the Windows OS across to it?

Actually looking at the Core i51 model for £535. Can easily add some extra RAM.

I could trade-in an Asus laptop that was a rather foolish purchase from a couple of years ago and reclaim some value from that. It was a refurbished model from PC World online - if I remove the sticker that says "Refurbished product" from the underside, am I going run into any problems with the trade-in?

Also it has a replacement battery (the one it came with failed just after the year's warranty expired), will that be a trade-in issue? Anything else I'm missing?

Thanks.

yes - you can install the O/S on the SSD, make a note of your product key first (Magical Jellybean Keyfinder if it's not on the case) - since W10 uses the rig spec to activate, replacing a bit of hardware may mean it is initially not automatically activated when you install the SSD but it's not a problem, just phone Microsoft to activate

they don't care if your product is refurbished or has a replacement battery

Thanks. Think I'll go for this then! I'm using the old Asus laptop right now, I do not get on with the keyboard or touchpad at all, it was not a good purchase
