A bit much for C2D... Good warranty tho.

I am amazed, 260 with case and full warranty, it is HP which is a decent brand too...... heat from my side.

Think this is a cracking deal for what you get with it, Can't see anything with similar specs for under £300.Well worth considering.

huh? case is about a tenner
been a few over past week or 2 better spec for 250
remember the 1gb extra ram you'll have to fit yourself, doesn't really cost them anything 1gb is throwaway for manufacturers now almost

Fitting the RAM yourself will, I think, invalidate the warranty... So this may be a cunning way to get us all to buy something with no warranty (despite the stated 12 month one)

UPDATE: Just been googling this - and opinions are divided - if RAM is installed as per instructions, and is considered a 'user-serviceable' part then it probably doesn't affect warranty... But I've not (yet) found anyone who has upgraded RAM in a PC or laptop and later claimed under warranty, so can't be sure.

I spoke to them about the warranty when they had this at £279 a couple of weeks ago. apparently the additional ram is "hard bundled direct from HP" and does not affect the warranty

Nope, the warranty won't be invalidated

I dont think adding the RAM will effect the warranty

From the description!:

HP laptop case and additional 1Gb RAM shipped with laptop and RAM will need to be user installed.
Installation takes less than 5 minutes and full instructions are provided or can be downloaded from here

** Installation of RAM DOES NOT Invalidate your warranty **

Hot deal for what you pay!! heat added!

RAM addition/removal does not void the manufacturer's warranty

Decent price, but it's HP.

I'm a HP accredited technician, and I certainly wouldn't buy one.

I used to work for HP and I would not buy one either.
Any business laptop ending in "b" is good quality, buy one of those instead.

279.98 and what is your point?

I'm waiting for an i3 to hit this price so I can buy one for the rents. Expecting them to drop soon now the 2nd gen i range is out.

HP is not good at cooling

I only sell HP business laptops. I've never had one returned. The only home user HP laptop I sold came back with a fault. I don't think they have anywhere near as many issues as Dell though.

Looks like when a good deal is posted on a laptop suddenly everybody is an expert. Great option for parents who need to get their kids a cheap reliable laptop for school.

Heat from me!

thanks for your expert view

Be careful with this one. The trackpad is nasty, the buttons awful, and the keyboard is absolutely horrific. Media keys down the left hand side of the keyboard, in front of the shift and tab keys really mess with your typing.

Brilly based upon your previous posts, it's obvious you have a bee in your bonnet about HP. I only gave my opinion based upon the price and never tried to pass myself off as an expert.

Stop trying to be a smartarse!

See the problem?

As for everyone being an expert, well I honestly couldn't say. But I'm HP APS accredited in dekstops, workstations and laptops (among others), and I'm advising people to avoid this one.

I'd say the same for people looking at the Lenovo G series laptops.
Both companies make good quality business laptops, and some people presume their cheaper ranges will be just as good.

To all the silly comments on this thread. I am an expert! take my word for it.

My other half bough this laptop from the same seller when it was listed in daily deals previous week for £279.99 for her mum, on my recommendation.

It came bundled with HP genuine carry bag, HP genuine branded/sealed RAM sealed in an envelope with instructions from HP.

Performance is good for basic stuff and it includes hdmi which supports full HD resolution. Thats brilliant.

I was given the similar laptop (older model) a year ago as work laptop and it has been doing the job very well.

Gotta agree with this one, I had the HP Compaq Q56 series with the keys down the side and what a nightmare, flipping cursor was all over the place and the print program and other programmes were kicking in left right and centre, gotta be the worst keyboard layout ever. Trying to type a simple letter was a nightmare and the amount of work I lost because I caught a side "shortcut" key and it left screen I was typing on was just unreal.

I ended up selling the laptop for the reason of the keyboard and that reason only. If you do a lot of touch typing then I would avoid, I can touch type and even I kept catching the short cut keys, more hassle than they are worth, especially when you are in full flow typing a document and you lose the whole lot after catching the wrong key.

I can't believe this. The listing on eBay yo-yoed from £269 to £299 then to £279 then to £259 but on every case loads of people bought them. As my brother uses HP laptops and has sung its praises, I am glad to say I am typing this message on a HP 620 purchased from oyyy_uk on eBay. (for £269.99 though). The RAM and bag included made this a great offer but I do agree with Infernogroup with the buttons on the side. My brother did warn me about this when he purchased his first HP laptop, and its annoying when typing fast or using a keyboard shortcut (pressing the volume button instead of ctrl) but I guess I'll have to get used to it.
