Most of the negative comments will be from cretins dismissing it because it's too big/heavy/not a MacBook etc. For example
I'd judge it on performance, price and reliability, and, most importantly, suitability for your needs.

The Spec is surely good and as a result I bought this make and Model - HP 250 - but with an AMD processor.

The laptop itself is really heavy. The battery life appalling. You will get better battery life with the intel processor but I can imagine it still will be bad. The screen is below par, the colours appear washed out and adjusting the contrast/brightness does not help.

How I wish I purchased the reconditioned 2nd hand business laptops I usually do. My reconditioned laptops despite being around 3 years older, perform much better than the new HP and cost a lot less than this.

Thanks for the info on Quidco.
What do think of this one? Better build, Full-HD IPS with Gen 8 quad-core i5. Long battery life.

I know it’s a bit more but I went for the Asus Zenbook on Costco for £599 found here

As a brand and build quality I prefer the Asus, however the Acer has the newest processor which is a significant improvement on all the others for this price range.

The problem with the acer is the build quality - the parts are housed in very cheap plastic so will not be as robust as either the HP or the Asus. It will perform better though. I dont know how good the screen is.

The reviews are respectable for the Acer and is available for £599 from other places including Argos:

Another option is this Lenovo V330-15IKB at £580 - in terms of spec it equals the Asus and the Acer. Although I cannot locate reviews for it.

My experience has been very good with Lenovos - I mainly purchase their reconditioned business ones, although I have purchased their home user ones for others. They have performed well and their battery life is decent.

The build quality of the Aspire 5 is actually very good. Sturdily build according to reviews, even the material used is very high quality. Plus the keyboard deck is Aluminium to minimize flex and heat.

Thanks, thats why I provide links so people can make up their minds.

Certainly there does not appear to be anything better for this price - there are others that match it. Battery life for the Acer is good. The screen appears to be ok for this price range - it is one of their better ones.

My experience is there is a difference between buying and reviewing an item brand new and having it over 6 months. The Acers I have been exposed to - I sometimes fix computers - have plastics that are brittle and crack over time. They may have changed now, but that has been my experience for the acers I have encountered.

The Lenovo is unknown as it appears to be a new model. My experience of the ideapads is that they are quite good and the best of the value laptops I have come across.
Anyone know if it will take standard HD as well as the ssd? Sorry if already asked.
I Have just received my new Dell Inspiron 13 2 in 1 with 8th gen core i5 8250U, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, FHD touch screen. I got it from the Dell Outlet refurbished (but as new) for £505 but that included an 18% mother's day discount.

I didn't pots because there was only one at the time bit it'd worth checking the outlet for bargains.

I have this exact one. Make sure you do the HP assistant updates and Windows updates. The HP assistant updates made my laptop go from using a percent every minute to now lasting a good 8 hours. Battery life still isn't great but took mine about 4 weeks to reach full capacity charge/hold. Great laptop, proper quick, boots to home screen in about 7 seconds.
Holy damn that's good
HP? Thank you, never again. Poor quality, overpriced, unreliable, broken touchpad in all devices I've had so far both at home and office. Horrible keyboard. Slow even with SSD and i7 proc + 16GB ram. Dark screen, often even not HD but for the price like £600. HP is a joke for me. I am IT Engineer for 20 years and IMHO only ThinkPad or at least Dell. No Asus, HP and Acers. And I've used HUNDREDS of devices not 3 or 4 like majority of forums experts LOL.

That has a different processor - this one is has the I7 - 7500 (3.5 ghz) vs I5 - 7200 (2.7 (ghz)
