Headline price is nothing interesting, but trade in price means you get this lot for £385.94, which IMHO i thin is a cracking deal, trade in had to be undamaged and working but no other word on specs etc, plus the pre-qualify you so no risk!

Intel Core i7-6700 3.4GHz

CPU alone is almost this price!

Open to other suggestions if you can find them, what you lot think?

Has anyone experience of claiming this cashback? Would you be able to claim it under say your workplace name?

Also any thoughts on adding graphics card to this (+possibly changing the PSU) and using for gaming?

technoworld has a bit cheaper with free delivery - £518.43 - same offer

Bought previously with trade-in when they accepted XP machines - a shame that clause has been removed from the T&Cs so it's only machines under 7 years old now...

If I've a desktop that was home built how are they gonna know the age? I guess the bios date on boot would give it away? I have windows 10 on it but it's over 7 years old sadly

Would a HP microserver be taken as the trade? I have one lying around doing nothing, it less than 7 years old

People have given their own name as the business name, you could legitimately be a sole trader trading as your own name.

Some people use cheap and nasty 10" tablets from ebay for £40 to trade in, ensure you document (take a picture) of what you're trading in and note all items sent as some people get their trade in value reduced as they're told they didn't return a power supply (even though they did)

HP specify terms are basic:

For your Trade-in to qualify for the promotion it must be a working, complete and undamaged, (reasonable wear and tear accepted) Laptop (minimum 10” screen size), Tablet (minimum 9” screen size) or Desktop. Your Trade-in must be no more than 7 years old and complete with all accessories including working battery and power supply where applicable.

And to think I have sold my old Samsung tablet last week... At £150 trade-in that would have been the same as I paid over 4 years ago...

If you've nothing to trade and can't find anything at the local tip or freecycle then you could buy a 10" tablet for £41 on ebay to get the full trade in price and as it's a brand new tablet they'd have a problem trying to get out of paying you the full trade in value!
EDIT: IGNORE THE ABOVE! - I accidentally listed a 7.5" tablet, thanks for Mavica for pointing this error out. Anyway, there's plenty of cheap 9" or larger tablets for £40 ish

Seems like a good price, you could fit maybe a gtx1050ti with no extra power req.
180w is pretty meagre tho and may NOT be std PSU so not easily changed IDK?

It's obvious from the specification of the machine.

For example, let's say it had a Core 2 Duo E4400

ark.intel.com/pro…FSB

That's a 10 year old CPU, so you can easily judge the era the machine was created.

I got a 5 yr old pc but I removed the hard drive , I guess that would make me ineligible for the offer ?

Last time I tried cashback on a Hp laptop, they refused

I tried it last year and got the cashback, I'm a sole trader but don't use my own name...I'm only registered with HMRC for tax purposes, I don't pay VAT and certainly not registered with company house.

Thanks for pointing that out, my mistake *must go to spock savers.

I've successfully claimed hp cashback on a desktop, laptop and printer. Each time getting a great deal after cashback. Make sure you fill in the forms correctly and that your trade in matches the terms. I traded in a desktop I bought off eBay for £20 but was also looking at Motorola Xoom tablets as they are 10inch. They ask for the brand of desktop so I would avoid a self built thing. There are warranty checkers online that you can use to check when the PC was manufactured from the serial number.

Need a Good Spec PC for Photo Editing, but only thing seems good here is the Processor and keep the HDD, and have no idea how i could claim this deal (not a business owner), any recommendations or even any builds out there on offer? Cheers

zen made this obsolete

The point is would you consider paying over £500 for this desktop?.
I've highlighted what I think are the notable good or bad features.
The main plus is the CPU speed and the number of cores, but in reality, does that count for much?
The rest is pretty bland, I think.
It is just a desktop, not a server or even a moderate gaming machine.
The cashback is just a bonus.

what motherboard is it ?? does it accept pci-e cards ?

Ta for tip on HP trade-in! Did not need featured PC, but just bought an HP Elite X21012 G1 - L5H17EA for £598 from Amazon, which is a decent substitute for Surface Pro 4 base model I was going to get until MS put UK prices into the stratosphere. Business model designed for user to maintain it and change parts (note RAM soldered). £300 cash back on the HP scheme, so just £300. If cash back goes wrong option to return easily to Amazon Item follows, if anyone else interested

Is there m2 slot on motherboard?

good but that's from a market place seller. I'm pretty sure you won't get cashback unless if you buy directly from Amazon.

You are pretty wrong hp pays cashbook irrespective of retailer.

Has anyone changed the PSU on one of these and added a decent graphics card? I'm thinking about adding a 1060 6gb

​particularly when the marketplace seller is an approved HP dealer on the allowed list for cashback!

I've done the HP trade in/ trade up deals several times and their customer service is excellent & helpful if any issues arise, don't worry about not getting your cashback or not being anything other than a sole trader in name only
