First time deal from me so be gentle. Seems like a good deal to me, lots of features on this laptop and has srp on HP site of £749, and is 748 at Webelectricals and 646 at DigiUK. Also says something about £100 cashback on it on dabs site but it expires soon and I have my doubts whether it will go through.

Seems like a good deal to me, so bought 1 myself! Below are some useful links...
Have fun!






Seems that the purchase price needs to be > £600 in order to get any cash back.

What is the delivery time and cost on this please?

Quidco would get you another £7.60 or so off. Presumably from Monday VAT will be 2.5% less as well, so another £10.15 off, though so far most retailers who have already 'deducted the VAT' seem to have added it on to the price.................

Not sure how much better it is than this one hotukdeals.com/for…872 for the extra cost. Need a new laptop for my daughter so any opinions welcome.

Ah yeh forgot about the quidco, sorry again! Good point about the VAT aswell!

Not a great deal difference between the two merlinthehappypig apart from the processor is a fair bit better in this one, has bigger hard drive, wireless N wifi instead of the G, and lacks an e-sata port. But apart from that its essentially the same laptop I reckon. Suppose it depends what your daughter will use it for... anyway thanks for the feedback!

.....and not forgetting the graphics card in this one.. compared to the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD in the other one. The resolution is also different between the two, 1280x800 vs 1366 x 768, and the screens are slightly different sizes.

Comes up as discontinued for me??

Hmm just after I ordered it last night it came up as discontinued... then was back as "In Stock" this morning.. dunno whats wrong tbh

Can I ask how this one compares to the two mentioned above?


I was looking at this one for my Daughter


i am voting hot on this

if you manage to get one...but i doubt many will, i can't see where to add it

best spec laptop at this price than any other

Hi Lez, the two laptops are similar but this one has a less power hungry processor, which will extend battery life, this one has a dedicated graphics card and a HDMI port, aswell as an e-sata port, plus this comes with a host of other stuff like altec lansing speakers and media remote. Other than that, very similar.

hi all
