Wow that is a cracking deal too! HEAT +
I'm struggling to decide between this and the Lenovo one mentioned above. I think I'll go with this for the bigger screen but it's a tough call as the extra storage would be nice. Does anyone know if I could stick an HDD in this in addition to the SSD? 128gb seems worryingly small.

I have decided to stick with this one as I can always upgrade the RAM and the SSD
I will let you know tomorrow if it does haha

Thanks! I'm probably going to get this one. Then upgrade the SSD and buy another 4gb ram when I have some money. Hopefully switching the SSD isn't too difficult.

If this is the correct maintenance manual the SSD is in the form of an M.2 SSD, so the hard drive space is empty - so you can add one.

(manual covers models 15-db0000 ~ 15-db0999 so should be good)

Amazing! Thanks for this info. What size hard drive would I need? Would this be fairly easy to put in or do I have to take the whole thing apart? Sorry, I'm new to upgrading laptops!
Would thus be any good for gaming? My son is after 1 or pc for Xmas and I haven’t got a clue

Have a look at the manual. 10 screws to take off the bottom cover (may be a video on youtub); warranty may be at risk if there's a warranty sticker anywhere.

For this price? Yes.

Though do mind that it is just at this price. I have a laptop with this processor, and it sure as hell isn't blitzing past my PS4, but it is damn impressive for how cheap these are.

What type of games does he expect to play on it and how long do you expect it to last as a viable platform? This machine only has 4GB RAM. If the graphics is stealing RAM from the CPU to do it's thing then that will limit the size of textures it can load, which means you will have to set the graphics to low or ultra low, as well as make any 2018 action games run like a slug, that is if they don't complain about insufficient memory and prevent the game from running at all.

Here is a video of the same CPU and integrated Radeon Vega 8 running GTA V in an HP Envy x360 with 8GB RAM



It looks fine in 720p @ 40-50 fps, starts to struggle at 900p @ ~30fps, and struggles at 1080p dipping into the ~20 fps range with some stuttering and lagging.

GTA V is an old engine, games of 2018 and 2019 will no doubt perform worse if they are of the AAA action variety. Hardcore gamers tend to complain if they can't get 60 fps, although personally that doesn't bother me as long as the game is fluid. The machine will play games, although you will desperately want to upgrade the RAM to 8GB and your expectations on playing the latest cutting edge titles had better be low.

Thanks! I've checked it and found a YouTube video. Seems fairly simple although I'm concerned about voiding the warranty. We'll see. I think I'll put another 4gb ram in and a 1tb HDD at the same time. Then I should have a machine that'll last me a good while :-)

In fact , you commented on my post for this laptop just before you posted the same deal here ….. confused.

He normally plays gta,Fortnite them sort of games. I’ve been looking at pc gaming builds at £500 550 but like a said I haven’t a clue with stuff like this
For those sort of games I'd go with a desktop PC every time. If it had a dedicated graphics card or a motherboard with a PCI-e x16 slot then you could always upgrade the graphics card at a later date. You can't do this with the average laptop, upgrading means buying a new laptop. The only problem with high power gaming cards is that they tend to be very long and may not fit in a low end consumer PC case, and are also very thirsty with power, quite possibly also requiring you to upgrade the power supply at the same time.

If you had modest gaming requirements then a laptop might do. I play mostly strategy stuff, most of which would be fine for something like this, preferably with 8GB RAM rather than 4 GB. If I were to buy a laptop for gaming at the moment I'd consider a larger budget, nearer £700-800, and if it played current AAA action titles then that would be nice, but I would expect it to keep up with those type of games as time goes on and their requirements inevitably go up.

Will keep my eye open for a gaming pc then, thanks for your help
Easy to replace the SSD But you cannot install a new HDD without " HP 15-DA HDD HARD DRIVE CONNECTOR CABLE BOARD LS-G072P 435OM932L01 " as there is a dummy board in the laptop the cost would be around £50 for the board, if its any consolation the Carrier is in place20558924881542789879.jpg

If anyone is interested in a 4gb DDR4 upgrade for this , I removed mine and have gone for 2 x 8gb instead , bit the bullet lol. Obviously it will be an exact match to the original stick, providing guaranteed dual channel memory. Same latency speeds etc to original so no issues.
PM me if anyone is interested.
Hey Rooney 10, don't suppose you know the make/model of the 4gb ram included with this laptop? Thanks
