Found 18th Jan 2013
Was £699.99 apparently.

Specs look OK to me. Not sure about how the processor compares to an i3, maybe someone a bit more tech savvy could advise!

Looks like quidco are offering a measly 1.5%, so I make it about £295.41 with cashback.

Great - if you can find any stock.

if this was ever £699 then it was price fixed, something that should be illegla but the major retaillers all get away with it...699!

According to another site they were charging £550 in august expertreviews.co.uk/lap…ons
£699 was an over inflated price (a practice I agree should be stopped) but £299 isnt a bad price.
Cant find any stock anywhere.

Decent price, but like most pc world offers you can never get hold of them, just checked every store within 75 miles of me in midlands (not like I'd travel that far) and nothing in either according to website.

ps on page says: was (£699.99 from 12/06/12 to 05/07/12) probably the release month.

HP don't make the disks themselves, they're branded. The failure is not HP's fault

HP is currys highest returned brand of laptops due to hard drive failure.

Searching on the net reading various surveys seem to place HP and Dell at the bottom for reliability, however it has to be said that HP do premium, middle and budget lines so with an average near the bottom then the budget line would be poor.

Blame HP then for not selecting quality brand disks.

Of course it is HP's fault, the hard disks don't magically walk into the factory by themselves, an HP executive manager signed off the contract , after probably sign offs from senior quality control manager, lead architect, technical director, technical service director, customer service director... and on and on, to buy these disks after thorough testing in their HP labs. All laptops are sampled for stress testings in HP labs or HP controlled testing labs prior to release. If they are deemed to be suitable for release to the market then the only people at fault are themselves and not the disk manufacturer as they make them to a price design point.

wow checked upto 200 miles from bristol and nothing!

I've purchased a lot of HP desktops, and out of 36 machines, we've had one drive failure in 18 months, replaced immediately under warranty. The disks get a lot more hammer than the average home machine would. Regardless of manufacturer, it's possible to get a bad batch of disks. Nobody makes shoddy disks deliberately - they're precision instruments.

I bought one of these when hp were doing them with 8gb of memory and windows 8 installed around this price after cashback (£28) and discount at xmas.
Certainly worth at this price (£700 no chance!!) if you can find one, looks and feels more than 300 notes and works pretty quick for a low end amd chip.
