Posted 24th Apr
There are rave reviews about this tablet laptop on tech websites and YouTube, in particular its battery life. Comes with the latest 8th Generation i7 (in fact, second iteration of the the 8th Generation. It's the i7-8565U and not the i7-8550U processor). Has a physical kill switch for the webcam. Two Thunderbolt USB-C ports + full-sized USB-A port. A stylus and faux-leather case is included in the pack.

You get an additional 20% discount to bring the price down to £968 if you choose Buy Now, Pay Later. The offer is valid till 25th April (I assume till 23:59 tomorrow).

HP Store are currently selling it for £1199:

Edit: had forgotten to add previously that this price is available only if you choose the Buy Now, Pay Later option.
Edit 2: added basic specs to the title to make it more informative.
Edit 3: had called it a tablet by mistake. Changed it to laptop and added a bit more of the specs from HP's website to save time for others.

The X360s look great and I love the ability to fold it, but no dedicated graphics card for that price...
HOT!

Price match over at John Lewis maybe, they seem to have it back in stock again

In fairness, you'd be hard-pressed to find a dedicated graphics card in any other similarly-priced ultrabooks (Dell XPS 13, Acer Swift 5, Surface Pro 6, Huawei MateBook Pro X to name a few).

Think the closest, is £400 over this silly grand in the hand price!

Should be melting hot in here by later tonight, when all the "IT" crowd see it

Tried to price match with John Lewis. Was rejected within the space of 20 minutes. Reason was very.co.uk doesn't match their policy.
If you fold it into a tablet mode is the keyboard deactivated ? Or how it works ?

Yes.
Does this work with the 15 inch model?
I woudln't think they'd price-match this offer, as it's not the cash price.

What does it mean 'get your credit back'? Does this just mean 20% is credited back to your account at some point?

should I wait for the new 9th gens ?

Agree that because of the form factor it's more expensive with a dedicated card, unless you go Ryzen APU instead, but I'd rather have a slightly larger body and dedicated graphics for the same price.

Not for this form factor.
9th gen make sense if you have a bulkier design with heavy duty cooling as that will be needed to extract the most from the latest 8 and 6 core laptop CPUs.
Otherwise they will be thermally throttled due to the power they will consume at heavy loads.
The big potential jump for this class for Intel won't be until they finally release 10nm chips late this year or even 2020. Not even sure how significant that will be as it's been delayed for years now.
It's possible that AMD's next gen laptop chips will beat those anyway.
Good price. I'd want 16gb RAM ideally though 😔
I rang them to get a precise answer, because I didn't want to be given the credit back as "store credit" so I would have to spend it on Very.

The way it works is this: you open a Very account (just like any other store account, like Next etc) which allows you to buy products on credit. In this case, it is not exactly credit, but delayed payment. You can delay the payment for 6 or 12 months (you choose). During that time, you can make part payments as often as you like and, as long as you pay off the full price before the end of the delayed payment period, you do not pay interest (so, effectively, interest-free credit). On 6th June, they put 20% of the purchase price back in your Very account, which you can then allocate as payment towards the cost of this laptop.

Superb, thanks for clarifying, very helpful. I wonder why 6th June?
I've no idea... They say they'll pay the credit back by either the despatch date or 6th June, whichever is later. Since they despatch pretty much right away, you can get your bottom dollar they'll pay in June. Maybe to help their cashflow or something? I am not knowing...

Hot for specs and wow design....and if anyone knows a lappy with thunderbolt under a grand please share. There was an asus that came with harman speaker asked the same price but i was dissapointed at that pricepoint no TB... and i guess this is top of the line in business area so who needs a graphic card most important than gpu is a good battery life/screen/Quickcharge etc....go on gaming area if you need one lol....
Forgot to mention in the description that this laptop charges to 50% from flat in 30 minutes (manufacturer's claim).

As you've said, dedicated GPU won't make any noticeable difference to what most people will buy this laptop for. You'd have to have pretty specific needs to require one. My 5-year-old laptop with an integrated GPU still holds up respectably with Web browsing, YouTube, office applications, basic photo touching up, Skype etc.

This is one of the best ultrabooks out there. As already mentioned it's extremely rare to get dedicated graphics in 13" form factor; there's a few, Nvidia MX150/250 but the majority suffer from CPU/GPU throttling because there just isn't sufficient cooling space (two fan solutions are a must). Best bet is Razor Blade Stealth 13"; that or ignore the dedicated graphics, MX150 is hardly great gaming after all!

Same applies for 14" designs, Huawei Matebook 14 (2019) is best hope. Matebook X Pro throttles.

15" form factor and Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti comes into play so actual gaming class.

13/14" ultrabooks are U series processors so 9th gen not yet on horizon. 15" allows H series CPUs and 9th gen just announced (along with Nvidia 1650/1660 GPUs).

Btw, RAM on 13/14" ultrabooks is pretty much all soldered so make sure to buy what you need.

any idea of when the 9th gen U series will be out?

Current rumours are 4Q19 or 2020 but it's all speculation. Still 14nm process, quad core, only small gains. Possibly one 6 core model (i9?). These "Whiskey Lake" are a refresh of 8th gen (small gain) and tbh haven't been out that long. No point delaying a purchase.
Got mine today. Fantastic machine. Premium build and superb performance. Battery life so far is ground breaking. Thanks for the heads up op
Glad you are happy with it and were able to benefit from the offer. I've not yet used mine much yet, but it feels very snappy and the battery seems to hold up very well. Build quality is excellent. I'm loving the keyboard: so much travel and very tactile.
