Is it 256 or 128GB SSD? Also this spec is usually around £300-400 so you just really want to have a touchscreen or smaller 13.3” display to pay this much for it.
Just noticed main pic and spec don't appear to match ...

I've changed the picture so it isn't misleading. Everything else says 128GB, including the HP store description where it's £649.

It’s too much money IMO. And 128GB SSD at this price is stingy. This is only a Pavilion, not the upper-end Envy or Spectre range. Ryzen 5 with 256GB SSDs can be had for £300, without touchscreen and with a more basic chassis. Depends what you need I guess but I would never buy a Pavilion for lasting durability.

EDIT - hang on... is this a Pavilion or an Envy? If it’s an Envy then it may be worth that bit more money. It says both. What’s the model number?

It’s an Envy x360. The title is wrong...

Horses for courses... I had a pavilion and it lasted 4 years of family use. Replaced it when the touchscreen finally gave up.

Yes but I bet you didn’t pay £599 for a Pavilion did you... anyway it’s an Envy here. Costco don’t seem to know what they’re selling. Pavilion systems are cheap and nasty, it’s a fact and just because one anecdotally lasted 4 years doesn’t mean they all will - you just need to read the forums about thermal issues or hinges failing.

Yeah the build quality is better as well as the LCD panel but the HP is over priced in comparison

Yes but if you look at any laptop as components only then you can say that about a Surface or MacBook too.

HP?


I guess that’d be something like this:

Would not recommend this laptop, so many issue (had 3 replacements from HP all in 3weeks) untill I settled for a refund. First had dead pixel, second had the display separating from hinge and final had a real bad coil whine.

You tend to pay a premium for a 2 in 1. The Envy also has an aluminium body, which you're not going to get in a laptop at the £300-£400 range. It would also have come with the HP Stylus if it was a full retail unit. And good luck finding ANY laptop under £400 with 8Gb RAM these days.

I was in the market for one of these at the tail end of last year when prices were up and down like yo-yos. This is a damned good price for one of those. In the end, I decided to wait. Now I'm trying to pool the cash together for a HP Spectre x360 with a 9th gen i7, 16Gb RAM and a GTX1650. You think an Envy's expensive?

I know all this, and the Envy just isn't that well put together and there are laptops in the £300-400 range with aluminium bodies (partial or otherwise). Many of the Ryzen 5 machines recently have had 8GB of RAM and come in this price range.

And no, I don't think an Envy's expensive, that's the point - it's a slightly more upmarket Pavilion so I don't think it attracts the price-tag it does. I have an HP Spectre now (not the x360) so I know how much they cost, but I've stepped across to an Elitebook for durability and build-quality vs. thinness and style.

TBH I don't really get the point of the Elitebooks. Those are too expensive for what they bring to the table. If I wanted something on that kind of level in terms of build quality I'd probably go for one of the ZBook workstations. I've gone back to studying at 50 and HP offer some decent discounts to students, but not every model is available.

I have two cheap HP laptops. Both have been bloody awful but they've somehow managed to last okay. My last one must be coming up to 4 years old now.

The Elitebooks are for business. Consumers don’t typically buy them but if you know what you’re doing you can pick them up for a fraction of the price - I’ve had 8 units of HP Elitebook 840 G5 we use in the office for £450-500 per unit, with i5-8250U, 8GB RAM, 256GB NVMe disks, fingerprint scanners, 14.0” full HD IPS high-gamut displays, glass touchpads and beautiful unibody alloy cases. Each machine had 30 months+ warranty left and unlike Dell, HP honours the warranty regardless of the original owner. The Zbook series are workstations and huge as well as crazy money.

Same story with the Dell Latitudes, don’t buy new, buy ex-lease or used.
