Nice laptop IMHO. Ticks almost all the boxes for a damned cheap price. HDMI out, ATI graphics card, etc. Yes the RAM is low, there is a 3gb version but I went for this on purpose as you can purchase a 4gb module making this 6gb in total for an extra £40. I can confirm there are two memory slots and only 1 is used with a 2GB module.

shame no link to product, not even the shop to help ppl find it

At £319.99 it's an AVERAGE price for this spec, now if it was £319.99 minus the £100 cashback then that would be a good buy.

Decent spec for the price and 2GB RAM is plenty good enough for XP or Win 7, but it is still a very basic spec, ATI 4200 graphics is hardly any better than an Intel onboard graphics chip, Athlon 2 dual core is an ok lower end chip (for nowdays), but it is fairly old generation and is more power hungry than an Intel Core2Duo, I3 or I5, but with RAM upgrade potential and decent hard disk space it is still a good internet browsing and office apps laptop, with lower end games capability (though upgrade the RAM for this), I'll vote it hot.

I beg to differ, the ATI 4200 is better than the Intel onboard graphics chip.

The point to this is for a good brand, well made and a middle ranged spec the price is good.. it can achieve most things and still allow for a bit of gaming without having to spend a substantial amount more to get an i3/i5 processor without a better g card.

Oh and you get Windows 7 Pro 64bit with this 2Gb version but only windows Home 32bit with the 3Gb version!

A net price is always preferable to cashback, which always has an element of risk that you might not get it (miss the deadline, claim gets "lost", etc.). £320 is too much for this laptop. I wouldn't take the risk.

or use cloudserve so the pc becomes a dumb terminal as in old citrix networks so i will not upgrade -- anyone tried this

From what I've seen the latest intel HD graphics in the i3/i5 motherboards is as good as a ATI4200 and eats less juice.

HP are not a good brand IMO, see the recall issued this week and try googling G6000 failure... as far as I can tell every single G6 series hp laptop ever made went up in smoke...
