Can you upgrade the memory on these? My eldest is doing a course soon, and think it might be ok for her, but 4Gb memory with Windows 10!

Yes the RAM is upgradable, there is an extra slot for more RAM in the machine. However if you open up the laptop you will void your warranty.
Doesn’t usually affect the warranty adding ram, it’s a pretty standard practice as long as it’s returned to stock before any warranty return.
HP Laptops do not last. Would not repurchase or recommend.

Not to mention, their CS sucks.

Samsung, Thinkpad and Apple on the other hand have been good. Esp Samsung - goddamn that is practically invincible! (and wasn’t expensive)

I have this laptop for uni course bar I have 128gb SSD good laptop and given it only 4 gb RAM work well On window 10 handles multi tasking well

I agree. Brought a HP from Argos few years back. RAM blew 13 months after purchase, meaning my warrant didn’t cover it. Now screen light blew as well. Garbage laptop

My HP laptop is eight years old. I had to replace the HDD, otherwise it's still working perfectly. It doesn't matter the brand, most perform well, some fail.
Worried to buy from Argos. So of the items they sell are returns. You can clearly see packaging opened and resealed.

Never, ever had an issue with HP stuff to be fair, so personal experiences shouldn't be used to thrash a brand. The point you should remember here is that you're comparing a Hp laptop at under £300 with an apple product that could have cost SIRO £2000, so hardly fair. As for these in particular, my wife has one for school and I have the 'posher' Pavilion. Mines a 4 core, hers a 2 core, as here. You would be hard pushed to notice the difference in the two from a performance point of view. Both very much on the lower end of the laptop scale, but you get a warranty and Argos will sell an extended warranty if you feel the cost of such 'warrants' it? See what i did there? :-)

Yes need to check seals and refuse if broken I'm picking a camera up from them soon and I'll check the seal before I buy it,.

which samsung laptop have you got?
HP has the most inept (and at times nonexistent) customer service I've ever encountered. Would avoid them like the plague. I know this is sold by Argos, but I think you only get 1 year warranty (not sure if correct?)

4GB memory with Windows 10!! Is absolutely fine in this scenario. Seriously.

Thats really odd. Don't last?! Not in my experience. And years of it. Granted HP business laptops are much hardier. But HP CS poor? Think you got unlucky there. They are renowned for 1st class customer service, which I can vouch for, home and business. In contact with them every week. Acer and Toshiba are the brand's you really want to avoid, very cheap and weak. As for Samsung being cheap? Er not in this reality that I've found. Most expensive you can get in the Windows world. An Apple equivalent. ThinkPad are business laptops, the brand being Lenovo. Business laptops are tougher. Home ones like this are meant for light wear and tear, in soft surroundings like home or school desk... Really really good deal. Best I got recently for a client was Ryzen 3 Lenovo, same spec expect had SSD and same price. This deal or that one both on the money. Ryzen 3 works very very well, with Rx mobile graphics that put Intel equivalent same price processor (the graphics part in particular I'm talking about) to shame.

It’s around 10 years old so I don’t think they are still available. Sorry, it’s a netbook (mini laptop) to be precise, NC10

I can only speak from personal experiences of myself and those around me.

I had an HP Pavilion and it lasted under 2 yrs.

I have separate dealings with HP CS and it was completely a waste of time. They make it as hard as possible to make contact and do as little as possible to “support”.

Hmm my MacBook Air is around 5 years old and whilst it was admittedly a lot more than the HP, I don’t think it was anywhere near £2000. (I looked up the release price and it was £849 RRP, I think I paid a bit less).

In any case, it has lasted far longer than the HP so long term hasn’t cost (much) more at less than £169 per year (based on full RRP) and is much easier to use. I used to think Apple laptops were a waste of money, but after I tried using it I now much prefer using it.

(Nb I am a fairly basic user who doesn’t require super high spec)

Lol, I have a Macbook Pro 17" which I have had, I think from new since around 2011 or 2012. Whilst, yes, it is still going strong, I could hardly say it a) didn't cost a pretty penny when it was new and b) it hasn't cost me half as much again keeping it on the road over the years? To be fair, it is by a mile the most used computer of any description I have ever had, so in cost per hour over time, probably not a lot, but in overall cost, a fortune.To be fair to HP, between themselves and Dell, all of our pubs' and hotels PC's are these brands and I cannot put my finger on a single failure over the years. They are ultra-reliable, similar kit to what the NHS uses, not that dear to start off with and still, more importantly, completely relevant today. It really depends on what segment of the marketplace you are in? It is a shame you didn't have much luck with HP, as from my own personal experience, which is just that, I have never had an issue with them. Compaq on the other hand, before HP took them over, were a very different kettle of fish. OP was saying to go LEnovo and not Acer, but Acer is aLenovo brand nowadays too. I think it is all about the pricepoint and where the manufacturers need to get to in order to convince you to part with your money? As I said earlier, I use a HP Pavilion Ryzen laptop, wasn't dear and to be fair I don't use it anywhere near as much as I used to in years gone by, but it is still reliable, as have all of my HP machines been. I also use a little Geo 14" laptop which cost me all of £100 or so. This I use everyday. Customer Services in Warrington. They email you back same day, N5000, so no great mover, but for Office duties, it is excellent and it gets thrown on the floor of the Range Rover everyday. Once a week or two it might see a dish cloth and a couple of hours on the charger. The whole world would tell you how useless these are, but again, subjective!! Of the budget brands, I think the Lenovo have the best keyboards, whether it is a trick they gained from IBM days, I don't know, but maybe the best way is to go to a physical shop and try them out? Batteries seems to be the biggest issue these days in them all, with manufacture all being in China to a price point, compared to the heady days of US production, but agin, all forced by the requirement to reach a pricepoint. No such thing as a fre lunch, as they say? ;-p

True :-)

Ah, old Thinkpad and IBM.

Can’t say I’d agree the fact that a certain brand is used by the NHS is a marker for quality/value though!
