Superb laptop. But please do a clean install or you'll go mad. I paid £749 and bought from JL.
I wish it was about £460 like it is in the USA
Heat from me!
Have these improved over time. Note book checks conclusion is pretty scathing ;

‘Unfortunately for AMD, all else is not equal and Raven Ridge is simply not yet ready for prime time. Our test unit is extraordinarily slow and suffers from random crashes. In particular, the system would crash more frequently when stressing the GPU or running gaming loads similar to the previous generation of AMD Dual Graphics notebooks like on the Asus FX550IU. Synthetic benchmarks may reveal the Vega 8 to be faster than the aging GeForce 940MX, but the opposite is true when running most modern games. This is classic AMD for better or worse - excellent performance-per-Dollar that’s ultimately dragged down by inferior drivers and developer support.’

Yep they are fixed. They tested with initial driver and their unit came with slow hard disk (non of the retail units released with slow hard disks). I got few issues initially but after clean install with driver updates all become OK. Battery life also improved along with fan noise (firmware update required). However if you don't need touch screen go with Acer Swift 3 model.

What a total c**ck up on HP's behalf with my order. I placed an order on Saturday for 2 of these and received my conformation email. Sunday around 1 o clock i received another email confirming my order for 3 HP Envy 360's then checked the credit card and they had taken / reserved nearly £3.5K of my card and my first order had disappeared no contact number for customer service so called the sales team who put me thought to CS who wanted screen shots of the 2 orders and my CC bill, OK sen them first thing in the morning and heard nothing so after lunch emailed again to find out what was going on and still nothing so emailed yet again about 4.30 cc the chief exec. and just had an email telling me they cancelled my order. Pretty shoddy service and no appolgy. I think i will look elsewhere now.

Hi, thanks for the advice, but what do you mean a clean install? Is that just install Windows to remove the HP software? How do you do that?
Thanks!

Yes. Create HP recovery disk and then delete the recovery partition. Keep recovery disk safely.

After that Download all the latest drivers and bios updates. Copy them to USB and keep them to use after win 10 install. Then create windows 10 USB install disk (use Windows 10 media create tool).

Boot from Windows 10 USB and delete all the partitions & repartition as you wish. Install Windows 10 followed by drivers.
Run the Windows update.

Most of the HP utilities are crap so don't need to install. Just check all the HP utilities and see if anything important to you. For me nothing. I only installed important drivers.

Goto tweakhound.com and check their windows 10 tweak guide. Very useful.
