I suspect the problem you'll have with this is its very close to 13" Apple laptops pricing which do have legendary build & design quality which HP don't have and of course can still run Windows if that's you're thing too.

Specs etc are great but despite not liking Apple generally & their rabid fans at all I'd be looking to put my money there especially if you know a student that will get you educational pricing.
Better than Macbook
hot deal
I'm not liking the fake review posted on the site blatantly by HP employees. Bunch of crooks. Heat tho, on par with dell xps
I have a slightly higher spec'd ZBook 15 G2 that cost a lot more than this... - this is a very very good price

This or Surface Pro 4... oh dillemmas. I like the portability of Surface Pro and the whole pen-touch thingy, but the specs on this one easily beat Microsoft's tablet
good spec, but wait until the 27th and you might get an even better offer... oO
You can also get the i5 version with Full HD screen for £584.98 using this voucher.

I'm quite tempted but lack of reviews is putting me off.

The I5, is a much better deal and the battery will be much better due to 1080p screen. Speed different will be neglibable, you should post this as a deal in itself.

I've used a voucher code not on Topcashback before when buying from HP and still got the cashback, so I'd take that with a pinch of salt

For similar pricing an apple laptop has a fifth generation i5, half the memory, a 128gb SSD and a 1440x900 display. If those details sound like gibberish to you and you just want something that can handle a bit of web browsing and has a glowing apple logo on to look nice next to your beats headphones the macbooks are nice thought free devices.

If you do anything that requires the kind of specs this HP has you're looking at double the money and still getting an older generation i7, half the storgage and a lower res screen.
I have ordered one using the education discount which brought it down to £779 without the code. The education discount store doesn't seem to work with any normal discount codes

I bought the i5 and QHD screen few days ago for 550 after trade-in and I'm very pleased. Great specs, superb screen, and battery lasts 6+ hours of intensive usage. Sound is not the gratest tho, but that would be the only con
Do these have backlit keyboards?

The Macbook's i5 outperforms the i7, i5/i7 are nothing but marketing tags which you seem to have fallen for. Clockspeed does actually matter, who would have thought it?... The i7's main advantage is lower TDP. Realistically the i5 and the i7 differences will be faint given they are both dual core, aside from graphics performance and battery, maybe. They will both be fairly good performers. If you need heavy lifting go with a quad core HQ part, it's not rocket science.



I've fallen for marketing tags? You think an apple product of a lower spec outperforms a none apple product of a higher spec because why?

A 1.6ghz (2.7ghz turbo) i5-5250U with will outperform a 2.5ghz (3.1ghz turbo) i7-6500U?

And as you said Broadwell vs Skylake means less energy efficient and lower graphics performance. And i5 vs i7 isn't just marketing. Yes on laptop they are both dual core with hypeythreading but you still have a higher cache on the i7.

We're not talking huge leaps but still higher performance.

Why do you think the Macbook i5 outperforms the i7 here?
Looking at Passmark, i5-5250u = 3679, i7-6500u = 4241.

Why are you talking about the Macbook? OP clearly states 13 inch Macbooks … Why are you talking about the Macbook? OP clearly states 13 inch Macbooks i.e Macbook Pros, not Apple's 12 inch Macbook. Which isn't much more than a vanity project, actually more expensive, and not really comparable.



You can't get a macbook pro for this kind of price, it would have to be a macbook air 13" which has a i5-5250U. The i7-6500U in this laptop outperforms that by 20-25%.
This looks like a cracking laptop!

https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-6500U+%40+2.50GHzhttps://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-5257U+%40+2.70GHzYes when they both run at different TDPs you can't simply compare clock speeds.Lol evidently they are just marketing tags, as this example shows. You cannot presume i7 > i5. You have to consider base clockspeed/boost clockspeed, cache, hyperthreading, cores, TDP etc...



Macbook air i5 in the same price backet doesn't have an i5-5257U it has an i5-5250U so those two links are meaningless. The i5-5250U is only a 1.6ghz base clock not 2.7ghz as in your link.

I can't tell if you're just spreading false information for the sake of winning an argument or genuinely don't see you're wrong but on a consumer advice thread where someone might believe you on gauging a buying decision you need to either get facts straight or go and do your trolling on reddit.
do you know how long the code is valid for?

You turn display scaling up. On my 1920x1080 10.8" Dell Venue at 204 ppi 150% is perfect. On this at 276 ppi You would probably push to 175% giving you similar scaling to a full HD screen.

Windows display scaling isn't perfect. Some app scale really blurry. You can disable scaling for individual apps, bizarrely for some apps this still displays them at the scaled size but without blurryness (CPUID's HWMonitor for instance).

It's not perfect and is something Microsoft badly needs to improve.
do they do a 15inch version? if not, what monitor should i get please going for the i5 one. ta.
Wow, great specs and excellent price. Apple shareholders will be clutching their chest.

MS has very little to do with that. fact.
3rd party apps is what in most cases fails with scaling.

There are plenty of parts of the Windows operating system itself that blur up when scaled. Fair enough they are parts that Microsoft are trying to deprecate, but it's still an awkward user experience.

HP have a pretty bad reputation for durability.



I had a 2013 HP Envy i7 4th gen, was nice when it worked, ended up getting rid and getting a smaller 15" Envy i7 which also screwed up, so I got rid and got a HP Probook which was rock solid as it's made by HP and not an outsourced consumer model. I ended up selling it to a friend and bought a Mac Mini 2014 for development purposes.

up and down scaling was, and always will be an issue no matter what. That's why screens and apps should be used in their native resolution to get the best experience. On 13" close to 4k screen resolution is unnecessary, use a better panel instead ( and I am a pixel peeper ).

I don't agree high PPI is unnecessary. My 204dpi Dell Venue display is so much nicer to look at than a regular monitor. And most of Windows and most of the apps I use scale perfectly at 150%

I'm not talking about running a lower resolution on it and scaling in that manner. That makes everything look horrid. It's running at the native resolution with Windows display scaling set to 150%. Apps that support it properly run scaled as though the screen were only 1280 x 720 but absolutely pin sharp. Apps that don't are zoomed which is what causes the blurryness.

True, but an Apple laptop with this spec (i7 and 512GB SSD) would be way more than this.
