Found 22nd Dec 2012
I spent the day (Friday 21st) looking for a nice laptop deal for my young nieces Xmas pressie. Yes, I really mean a whole 20 hours solid!

I initially noted HP had some cracking prices in their sale, with on average £100-£200 off laptops (34 models), which made them very good prices for a top brand.

Then I spotted a 15% voucher code: 15OFFVC

NEW CODE for 15% off: 15OFFXMAS

I was looking at the Envy Ultrabooks (which are lovely looking machines). But I plumped for the Pavilion Ultrabook™ 14-b006sa. This is currently on sale @ Very for £500 reduced from £580. Also a lower spec variant of this model (b005sa) is in Currys @ £480.

I have posted the specs. below, but we are talking a 3rd gen Intel (Ivybridge), with HD4000 graphics, 6GB ram, a SSD of 32GB which means a boot time of ~8 seconds (!!) as well as a 750GB SATA, HDMI, USB3, Webcam, SD slot, battery up to 9 hours and all packed in a sleek, ultra-thin 1.8kg package!

A modern budget Ultrabook of that spec. for less than £300 after Quidco. Fill yer boots! There are several other stonking deals on there.

To top it all - free NEXT DAY delivery - Which should (hopefully!) mean I get it in time for Xmas.

A blinding deal IMHO. But hurry the code ends Tomorrow (23rd) and Quidco is only 15% for 24 hours (till the 23rd also)! So that could mean almost 30% off already nicely discounted machines.

Hope this helps some folks. Time to go to bed now (03:15!)....

PS: The slightly lower spec. variant of this model (14-b003sa) with 4GB and 320GB SATA can be yours for £314 after discount and £267 after Quidco. Yes, that's £267 for an Ivybridge Ultrabook with SSD!!!! Its £430 @ JL and that's discounted! [great mini-review there too].

thanks

if you went to work for 20 hours youd have fared better

Brilliant deal, Brewer! I very much appreciate your efforts and generous sharing of them

Good find!

It will be £297 after quidco as quidco is pre VAT.

The other one worth a mention is the HP Pavilion dv6-6c11sa. While the processor is not all that the hybrid crossfire will give you reasonable gaming performance considering it should come out at about £319 after discount and quidco.

Brilliant. What an insightful comment.

Thanks OP, great price.

Nice work - been looking for something to replace my Aging Aspire One

This should do the job.

i lke the look of this.

Hot from me.

Very good deal. Would have been exceptional if it had a better battery, which I assume is only good for 4hrs.

would quidco work with a voucher code not listed on quidco.com?

Good spot with 1.8kg it will be nice to carry on travelling

will it run call of duty?

Very good price . heat adeed .good find

xmas15offvc doesn't seem to work for me, sale10 does though. good find by the way

fffhgdhj

will it run call of duty?



Which one, there's about 11 of them?

Black Ops 2 won't run very well at all, maybe at 800x600 low settings. Modern Warfare 3 at native res, low settings should be ok and anything else before then will run fine.

Notebookcheck is a great resource for this, look for the HD4000 to get a rough idea of how it will run each game: notebookcheck.net/Cal…tml

thanks that works!
So can anyone tell me how HP compares to Dell Inspirons in build and quality? Notice Dell has deals at the mo as well so was swaying between the ultrabook here or a dell inspiron 15r? grateful for any advice,

Good find, my HP pro book has been a solid performer, also here from hukd:-)

Good spec and price for ultra book, heat

Good deal fancy using the deal for the 11" for £234 before quidco, am getting carried away spending money

Guessing case sensitive, hence OP's 15OFFVC working but lowercase letters not...often happens.

Superb deal, voted hot! Very annoying however as I was extremely close to buying this at £500, but went for a £450 Novatech instead...easy to be wise by hindsight, but if only I'd waited!

The HP Pavilion dv7-7061ea Laptop looks to be the best 'bang for buck' deal there.

Excellent Deal - thanks OP!
Gone for the lower spec 14" model for my parents' Christmas present.

Would the HP ultrabook handle multi tasking like having few pages opened at once am nit sure with processor speed of 1.8 ghz?

I've used the 14-b006sa - really quick and very crisp screen. Only 2 complaints - battery life was nowhere near the quoted 9hrs and the plastic around the keyboard and touchpad is a bit creaky. Excellent for the price!

He was joking.

Site not working for me!

Nice spot op. Hope you get some sleep.

Working fine for me , great spot OP

Great find OP. Bargains this side of xmas are hard to find but you managed it. Best deal for my needs is the 14" screen HP ENVY Ultrabook™ 4-1101sa at £599. Assuming the 15% code works plus 15% quidco (excl.vat) then it could be as low as £460ish for metal design, gorgeous looks, core i5 cpu, backlit keyboard etc. I'm so tempted.... must resist....

Ordered!

Banned

Where does the £51 quidco come from?

Looking at TCB its 6% and cant even find HP on Quidco - but thats some cashback amount to achieve that after VAT is removed!

Should it not be £320 after cashback?

What have hp got against anything more powerful than a 630gt? Can anyone spot one with a higher end 640 or 650? good find though op, very nice.

I have been looking for a netbook PC with windows 8 so I have ordered the 11" HP Pavilion dm1-4341sa one for myself. Excellent deal for just over £200. Voted hot.

Search for the full name Hewlett-Packard on Quidco for 15%. Can't understand why people bother with TCB, I trued them a while back and had nothing but trouble.

Quidco is 15% for rest of today.

Could you easily put Windows 7 on this?

I just logged into the HP employee store - it is £339 by default on there.
But you cannot use the voucher codes

They seem to have taken link out.

Well considering computers from 10 years ago could do this I would bloody hope so.
