when people come out with sweeping statements such as yours without considering the price, it mis-leads people to think you need to spend a fortune on a laptop. that's not what this website is about

the reality is this will be fine for 90% of people for web browsing and watching netflix

it's £200.

Ebuyer are showing not a 20% but a £20 reduction (from £219.98 not £249.99), ie nearer to 10% rather than 20%. Or have I missed something?

Sweeping statements? I think if you read through the source I also put in then you will see that this lowest spec version is to be avoided. I think a professional would have better input than a keyboard warrior fighting the injustice I have clearly laid into HP. Oh no wait, I don't think I did. My statement was considering the price, as I stated my old surface 3 which admittedly was bought on sale is on par with this laptop. So dear sir, please read through people's statements and don't take it all so personally. My statements are backed up by sources and personal experience.
Have a Very Nice Day.

'awful CPU..'

sounds like a very sweeping statement considering the passmark is respectable for the price. the review even said its fine for basic browsing and word processing so you didn't read it very well.

Yeah...very sweeping...mate you are clearly a troll.

Also, I think you may need to read what I wrote about not buying this lowest spec because it isn't worth it and also see it is what was stated in the review.

VerdictThe HP 255 G6 was provided by: cyberport
Our test demonstrates the 255 G6 as a notebook with strengths and weaknesses. The good sound and average system performance is contrasted with slow mass storage and lack of support for certain screen resolutions. The 255 G6 should not be purchased In a lower configuration than that of our test device.

Considering their test device had a 1080p panel with 8 GB of ram which this system doesn't have, I think I'm making a perfectly valid statement.
Go away troll, re-read the posts and the link before commenting again.

which had a price of €400 (£360ish)

this is just above half of that price so is hardly a fair comparison

i think the likes on the comments says it all

Yes, the world lives on Likes. The price you are misquoting again is the msrp. Your arguments so far have consisted of claimed sweeping statements, using passmark as a benchmark with price (in which case a 600 Dell with a 8350U and a 8000± passmark would be better value according to you), Likes on a post, quoting MSRP, sidestepping the verdict on a source many people trust, going off topic and talking about second hand cars.
Anyways, looking at your account, you clearly live off HUKD Likes. It must make you all giddy. So have a complimentary Like on me.

sure

if you wan't to do the whole looking through my profile thing, why did you say a 2nd hand 980ti cant be compared to a brand new 1060 on the pre-built HP thread?

you just said a 2nd hand laptop would be best

are you a hypocrite?

Lol I didn't look through your comments, merely that you post a lot and consume Likes. But since you brought it up, if you read that deal, it was a response to someone who mislead users by stating they could get a better custom PC with a 980ti but failed to mention that their 980Ti was a second hand card. Kind of different. It would be the same as me going, 'Hey look, this laptop is better than the G6 here' and then not mention it being refurbed. So sorry mate, you're all outta luck here.

not really different though, is it? your statement was that a 2nd hand card cant be compared to a new one, regardless of whether he explicitly stated it or not

but that's exactly what you are doing here

it's pretty obvious who the troll is here, trolls always lash out when backed into a corner

Not really. My statement was the guy failed to mention it is second hand. I don't think I failed to do that here did I. Again, quit trolling mate and only misquoting without context. You're starting to sound like Sarah Sanders :).

OP - 'Built I i5 6500 980ti rig for 500£ so this is no deal'

You - "Your 980ti is no doubt a secondhand card. Can't compare."

"cant compare"
I'm voting this hot based on its a decent deal.

Yes the specs ain't amazing but if you throw Linux on it what is free you have a fully working laptop for £200 and in my eyes that's a decent deal.

makes perfect sense

i'm quoting you saying you cant compare 2nd hand to new

i agree regarding the spamming - sorry OP
Why is it that every post for a low cost laptop that'll function perfectly well for anybody who only needs a low spec laptop, attracts idiotic comments from people who seem to think they know what everybody else wants, needs, or, more importantly in many cases, can afford?
Secondly, why do those who feel inclined to share their negativity feel less inclined to post something better at the same price?
Thirdly, how long till the first troll arrives?
Edited by: "qbs" 10th May
Oh - it so nearly got me salivating. If it had to be 1366x768 then putting it in a smaller package without the DVD would have made it really neat, even cheaper? and preferable to a Chromebook. Otherwise a bit more cost £25/50 for a resolution that better befits a 15.6" screen.

But still a great deal.

If I can take a machine with better spec but with the same warranty and for the same price, I'll take the better spec. The fact it is "second hand" becomes an irrelevance.

Seconding this, bargain basement new laptops are rarely pleasant to use (screen quality, CPU power, keyboard and case quality all suffer). Bargain basement second hand business grade machines that actually cost a grand or more new are better value.

Take the Thinkpad T440 as an example. I've just had a look on ebay and found one for £135 with an i5-4300U. That CPU clobbers this one (twice the performance) and as for the rest of the machine, well, it shows that it originally cost over a grand new. Better yet, it's 4 years old yet parts are still commonplace. You won't be able to say the same of most cheap laptops, once they break outside of warranty they go in the bin.

Nice to hear from an actual user pet2000. Can you give prospective buyers a bit more in depth mini review? What OS have you installed? How is the keyboard and trackpad. etc. Any big issues?
gentlemen please shake hands and agree to disagree otherwise we'll be forced to glove slap you both on the cheek.

Heat from me, cheap n' cheerful and under £200
I purchased this laptop on Friday. Also fitted a 120gb SSD for £30 also from Ebuyer at the same time so cannot comment on the speed of the 1TB 5400 HDD. I have cloud and network drives so storage sisn't an issue, especially as this won't be my main machine.

With an SSD, the boot time is crazy fast, the opening of programs too. Although compared to a i3.i5 laptop of course your are going to notice slight delay, opening of large content webpages for example, but not to the point where it is frustrating.

I preloaded Windows 10 64bit on this. The fan noise seems to kick up a bit when it first boots but then it's near enough silent. The keyboard is great. Touch-pad isn't bad, but not fantastic. Slightly to small and I feel like the texture should be smoother.

The screen, yes it's not great but for web browsing and a bit of YouTube, it's fine. It's bright enough and text can be read perfectly. Just don't expect wonders from a £200 laptop is all I'm saying. Even the build quality is what I would expect. Although it is all plastic, it's feels solid without any flimsy parts.

I even got free Bullguard anti virus in the box. Now I know what a fast computer is. I have a Ryzen gaming build, and of course this laptop is slower but not to the point where I am disappointed with my purchase. It's great for what I need it to do. You can buy refurbs, second hands for better money etc..but for someone who just wants a laptop, quickly, from a reputable seller, that is brand new and who just wants to browse the web, stream content and so some basic word processing, it is perfect.

However, I added an SSD to mine and I recommend everyone does too. Really easy to fit and they are dirt cheap these days. With more and more content being consumed directly from the internet, it makes sense.

So there are my thoughts.
