Very, very tempted to get this at the price. Someone give me a reason not to go for it?

looks like a misprice!

Good Luck!

EDIT : Just seen that it's a discontinued model - from the HP web site - so maybe not a misprice. Also Technoworld has it at £529.

hm thanks.

I think I saw a 17" HP in Tesco with a duo core and 2gb ram for £499 today.

I think my uncle bought this Laptop a couple a weeks ago @ Staples for £600 and odd quid.

I have the smaller screened Dv2000 14inch. with a 7200 graphics card
(mine has no bluetooth)

The best thing about these HP pavilion machines is the chassis,
They look and feel great, I couldn't find another laptop I liked the look of.
Even Ibooks look boxy

The webcam is handy, has a remote control for media centre.
you can play dvd's without starting windows.

Mine also has a built in 5-in-1 card reader, doesn't mention anything about it.
for this one

I say for the money you get a good quality laptop, with everything you could need.

you might want to add more ram later as this comes with vista

Make sure when comparing against other HP pavilions they have the same nvidia graphics
and not the poor intel graphics..

yup thanks for pointing that out, but it didnt mention it on the actual website-
I'm sure it has one, they are pretty much standard

Integrated Intel Media Accelerator 950 is not a patch on Geforce Go 7400.

Id say you get a prettier laptop with the HP, also the HP has
a nvidia 7400 graphics, which means it will play "some" recent games.
The Intel intergrated graphics is poor.

The dell you're getting good support though!

I don't mean to rain on the parade, but my wife has had two HP laptops in the last three years, both which have now been sent to the parts bin in the sky.

Don't be so sure that an HP is as good a build quality as you might think.

:pirate: CJ :pirate:

Nice deal

core2duo, decent graphics, sound, ram, harddrive! decent everything. even got a built in camera!

i would defo buy this if i didnt already have a laptop ! :thumbsup:

Cool, thanks! Have just ordered one.. Have googled since tho and found it to be the same price elsewhere.. but still this has Quidco + ipoints...

cclonline.com/pro…d=0

TIP:

There are 2 main components to look out for in a laptop as they can't be upgraded... the processor and the graphics chipset; this fella scores well in both areas.

Nice processor and decent graphics plus it also has 2Gb ram and a 160 Sata HDD to boot!!

HP make decent laptops, you will always find some people will have a bad experience but that goes for everything in life. I'm a desktop technician for Orange and we have loads of HP's. They're not the best but they're by no means the worst.

Defo the best deal around atm.. go for it but be quick

PS. Applesink; Intel GMA 950 vs GeForce Go 7400 with 256MB - NO COMPO!!!

There are loads of cheap lappers around but they hardly ever have dedicated graphics

So so tempted to get this rather than the Vostro 1500. Unsure which is the better overall. Does anyone know if this has a optical out?

Thanks Crossy

Don't forget Quidco at 3% knocking off another £14.

Unfortunately this only has 2 x 512mb installed but it can take 2 x 1gb. I'm not sure how 1gb of ram holds out with vista but I'd have thought it wouldn't be a problem until you want to do some heavy multitasking.

specification wise I think the Vostro 1500 wins hands down (I've ordered one and waiting on delivery) but I might of been swayed by this as the build quality and style of the HP's are great.

laptopsdirect.co.uk/Ace…asp

Was looking at this one but could be tempted to change my mind to the HP or Vostro (not happy with the month long wait though :-( ) Can anyone who knows what they're talking about tell me which of the three stands out?
I like the fact the Acer's got 2mb RAM whereas the HP only has one (and at with 2x512 I'd imagine it'd cost a bit to change to 2x1gb,). But the HP definitely looks tempting.

STAY WELL CLEAR OF ACERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL THEY OFFER IS GOOD SPEC BUT THE BUILD QUALITY IS VERY POOR EVEN BY CHINESE STANDARDS!

Agreed, the vostro 1500 deal posted on here at £525 is a far higher spec. Faster CPU, much better/newer graphics. If you're after the most bang for your money it maybe worth waiting for something simillar to come up.

Shame the Vostro looks so horrible:p

This HP deal looks excellent though, thanks:thumbsup:

ram is good - though would prefer intel processor and doesnt have webcam built in.

Good specs but 3Kg is a bit on the heavy side

The only problem with the MD deal is the RAM - 1st of all its 1GB (2GB would have been excellent) and secondly if its only 1GB as is, then 1 x 1GB stick would have been far better as it allows you to upgrade without ditching the existing ram!

Not really a problem for me: I will replace 1x512MB with 1x1GB memory I bought for 20 pounds during the Google Checkout promotion, format the HD and get rid of Vista, install Windows XP MCE, and then this laptop will fly with 1.5GB of total memory. The 1x512MB I can ditch on eBay anytime! ;-)

If you say so

Has this got the gloss or matt surface to the screen?

High Definition BrightView

I think this refers to gloss finish.

what would a rough price be for 2x1gb ram, and is it easy to upgrade?

Thanks

Ordered one! Good deal. Heat and rep added.

For whoever is not registered for ipoints yet: go first on ipoints.co.uk, register and get 200 points for free ad then go on Quidco, microdirect and complete the purchase of the laptop. Otherwise you will miss the free points given for first registration, as I have just found out for myself::-(

Thanks for the link. Since ccl online offers no Quidco, microdirect is a little cheaper + you get 1920 rpoints added to your account! :thumbsup:

generally agree with vostro comments but need to be convinced on build/looks quality - anyone have high res pictures?

also, to get better bright screen you need to pay extra £35 for the upgrade which is a ripoff.

yeah i just noticed Dell has hiked it from £10 to £35 for the true colour screen. On a side note i have a friend who does Pc engineer and networking for a living, i just spoke to him to ask his opinion and he said Dell in general have alot of problems with there hardware. He also said the majority of jobs he goes out to are Dell systems. I might just flip a coin i really like the look of the HP.

I was wondering how you got this to 487.90? That doesn't incl VAT or delivery right? I got it to 598.15!
