Discount code: XMAS2010 brings the price down to £479.99

impressive price for an i7 with this spec, even if refurbished. HOT!

Amazing price for such a high-end laptop, doesn't matter about refurb!

anyone got a full spec datasheet / pdf?

dont want to link the datasheet from hp site incase there are multiple builds of the same 2110ea range
on hp site states 4 usb (1 esata shared) wireless n, gigabit ethernet, bluetooth none of which are mentioned on op site - hard drive also listed as 7200rpm
if spec is as listed above then i dont think that good a deal as processor is only good thing, rest bog standard for a 400-500 new machine
if spec is as hp site then worth a bit more though cpu still biggest plus by a mile.
still wouldn't have a refurb with such uneven specs for that price though

thanks, not sure whether to go for it, resolution is too low for my needs really and worried what state there 'grade a' might come in!

Well according to the website A+ means

Products are in very good condition, very light signs of use.

* Products are in very good condition
* Fully tested (see below)

* There may be very light signs of wear on keyboard and mouse
* Outer casing may have very light scratches
* Will have no missing/broken parts

XMAS2010 not valid

indeed but still a bit concerned that 'light use' might be quite subjective !!!

DSR applies. You can send it back.

You want a higher resolution on a laptop screen??? What for?

Dixons, Currys and PC World want £650 for the same refurb machine.

Not saying this isn't a good deal; but from the specs given it's not a high-end laptop; base level i7, OK graphics and a 'normal' HD screen doesn't equal 'high-end'.

Personaly I wouldn't buy an HP with less than 1 year warranty.



Edited by: "wombat6025" 27th Dec 2010

Theres a reason why its a refurb.....

If you want something new and not refurb, checkout my Lenovo i5 deal for £449.99.

An I7 with 4gb of ram and 1gb graphics card is a near top spec!! great find, im soooooooooooooo tempted to buy it..as for the warranty - well just pay a bit more and extend it up to 12 months then! stop complaining

Ditto - not sure I would want an HP full stop - quality is not where it used to be with HP

I bought an A+ grade ipod touch from this site for Xmas. Product was brand new sealed when it arrived, well chuffed!!! In my experience great products at great prices...........you pays your money!

What kind of crazy assed programming do you do?! lol.

link doesnt take me to the deal, has this expired?

Check if this model has heating problems. Large quantities of HP used to be sent back as a result of over heating issues which were never really resolved when being sold again. I have been a victim of one such model.

I think this tends to be a problem with most i7 as they are power hungry little things

It's all about the vertical resolution and this has 768 vertical pixels which is the same as a 15” CRT from over 10 years ago.

I dont really know alot about screens but isnt that above whats considered HD? So its not really the resolution being too low, its the aspect ratio (4:3) simply not suiting your needs (16:9)?

My old Dell D610 (from 2004) has a 1400x1050 4:3 screen; even though my eyesight is not good it is perfectly usable due to the quality of the screen.

It seems the current a 'fad' is to supply screens with low vertical resolution; sure they're "HD" because they can display 720p and that is fine for viewing video; but for screen work or even viewing web-pages a higher vertical resolution means less scrolling and ultimately less eye-strain.

786 vertical is fine and obviously the majority of people are happy with it; but being used to my current 1080p 15.6" screen I wouldn't want to go back to a lower resolution.

well post punch card, all the crazy kids have dual monitors on desktop setups but when just using a single display the IDE is a much nicer place if the res is 1600+.

Sorry mate, I bought the last one on Monday morning around midnight. I think it is an awesome machine with the spec and price I paid for it. You guys that are complaining about the screen resolution - give me a break......just buy an external monitor for God's sake if you are that worried. I for one intend to use my 24" full 1080p monitor with this laptop so who cares about the screen? I've even fitted this machine with a blu-ray drive from another laptop coz I ain't bothered with Lightscribe so now I have the complete package.
