Good price, compared to other retailers, so voted hot.
However, be warned that the processor in this is weak.

Original Poster

Don't forget this is the AMD Accelerated A8 processor
check here the comparison with I5
cpuboss.com/cpu…45M
depends in the end what u looking for of course but you wont get the same spec at this price on an I5 processor
In conclusion, choose what best suits your needs: if you're after a performance powerhouse, then opt for the blazing fast Intel Core i5 4570. But if you're looking for a budget Quad Core with improved graphics, then we recommend the great value of the AMD A8 5545M.

Full HD 1080p screen
Touch Screen
Backlit Keyboard

I've found the A8 laptop processor to be more than up to the job in most tasks, including some gaming. The Radeon card built in to the APU helps and it should be able to run most new games in at least low settings and some in medium.

For full HD, a backlit keyboard and touchscreen this is a fantastic price.

agree.. Full HD is what driving me to buy this

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

Argos are selling this for £499 which is the same as the ops pic,.......i suppose the only way to really tell is to go to argos and ask for a look

I tried hard to look for replacement battery for this but couldnt find one. I know its too early to think of this but does anyone know if I would be able to buy 9 cell for this one? there is no mention of batteruly life anywhere so I assume its very poor

Full HD is a big plus for this laptop, also think it looks amazing. The other half has a HP Envy laptop with beats, and must say the build quality is really good.

I wouldn't worry about the processor, it is more than adequate. If you really need more processing power, then you are probably looking to spend more than £400 in my opinion

The model has full hd and touchscreen as optional extras. The Argos listing doesn't mention either of these, so I'd assume it is a standard non-touch 1366x768 screen. Or am I missing something?

It does yes

check the Q&A from Argos reply

I have looked into this for you and can confirm the HP Pavilion G7V76EA 15.6 Inch 8GB 1TB Laptop has full-HD LED-backlit 1920 x 1080 resolution.

I'd go for this if sure it was this laptop. Argos seem to be selling the pictured one for £499 here argos.co.uk/sta…htm

Hey has anyone actually picked one of these up? Can't confirm its touchscreen?

I wouldn't touch HP again in a million years. Rubbish components, rubbish build and awful customer services.

AMD processor with an Intel graphics card?? Seems a weird combination...

Ok Confused. Which one is the deal for as the pic in the OP with the backlit keyboard is £499 on Argos or am I missing something?

i5 4200 is a similar class of processor even if it isn't quad core where as the i5 4570 is a step up.

It's not an Intel graphics card it's an AMD Radeon HD 8510G

As an EX HP employee I can say these are nothing to do with HP other than the Logo, it will probably say "Designed By HP" underneath like nearly all HP Consumer laptops and made in the same place as Crappard Bell, Advent, ETC. Pro book or Elite book are the only true HP laptops.

Argos don't seem to be that great at the correct details in their listings oO Though better than the paltry info you get on Groupon I suppose...

My opinion on why Intel beats AMD is because of the power usage. In this particular laptop the cpu doesn't use much power but in the desktop cpus they skyrocket causing lots of heat and of course, increasing electricity bills, also reducing battery life.


Edited by: "rafi105" 29th Jul 2014

So is this the pictured laptop in the op or is that one £500? Do you guys think its worth £500? Cheers.

It's an Argos screw up >

notebookcheck.net/AMD…tml

This has a GPU built in to the CPU, which is a Radeon HD 8510G. This is a low powered GPU which isn't really suited for any serious gaming whatsoever.
Edited by: "fishmaster" 29th Jul 2014

Don't take what I say as Gospel, but Argos say it's the G7V76EA which is the part number for the HP Pavilion Beats Edition 15-p099na.

Pictures at store.hp.com/UKS…CNB

Appears to be close/same as OP picture

Don't need a laptop, but very tempted with this. HOT

Yes my experience is that the G62, G6, Envy line of laptops often have issues, but Probooks and especially Elitebooks are rock solid. Elitebook 6930p/8440p even though they're getting on a bit now are nice bits of kit. Only seen a few Probooks with motherboard issues and fan problems which plague the aforementioned laptops I've worked on.

The performance of the 8510G is slightly better than the 6630M:

notebookcheck.net/AMD…tml

Therefore it should handle the majority of games at medium settings (720p) and demanding games will have to be played at low settings.

My sister has this card in a toshiba laptop and she runs Skyrim at around 40 fps average at medium settings (1366x768).

I've used a laptop with the same processor and can confirm it handles most games at low to medium.

I've also had issues with shops selling HP laptops (ie mine) with listings that weren't right and HP have been very good about it. Always use the online webchats, they're much more responsive (and free) to chat to people who seem to actually care about your issues.

Upshot of my £399 A8 was that it was advertised with a dedicated card which it didn't have. HP agreed that their site was wrong and sent me an i7 QM laptop worht £799 with full HD, touchscreen and a half decent GeForce card instead. I'd call that good customer service!

I've noticed in the Argos description that there's an EAN number of 888793319468

Quick google search turns up this PDF at HP: www8.hp.com/h20…pdf


Keyboard is backlit,
Screen resolution is 1920x1080
Laptop is Touch Screen

Now there is a chance that options attract additional letters on the model number...

Original Poster

even in their Ebay account ARGOS has the correct pics and the correct price 399
ebay.co.uk/itm…269

Not bad, but the processor could be better, score a lowly rating

Still not sure this is touch screen , the official HP brochure for referenced above for EAN code even states optional touchscreen. From what I can see the processor is fine for non serious gaming .

Just a quick warning about this deal. I went into Manchester-Hulme store to buy this today and when I got it home the model number said p011na not p099na as described in the q & a section of the website. I took it back for a refund as that model only has 1366×768 screen. May have been unlucky but I would definitely check the model number as I even used the deal link on this page to reserve the laptop before I picked it up and they said the catalogue numbers were matching.
