I've been mooching for a laptop, I posted a deal earlier, but I have gone for this deal I found on HP website in clearance section. This certainly won't be for everyone but I think it might be a good fit for a niche market.
Im often away from home in a vehicle, and I'm wary of open WiFi hotspots so end up browsing gumtree/HUKD/EBay etc on my 5 inch smartphone - its a pain! I Can't be arsed tethering. Don't want to sit in McDonald's or wherever. This deal saves all that. I may sound lazy but I'm not tech savvy and this ticks most of my boxes.
Windows 8.1 64 bit.
N2840 processor
13.3 HD screen.(1366x768)
HDMI
USB2 x2
USB3 X1

Hope all this helps someone! Lol!

250mb of data won't get you very far. Plus you will be waiting longer for the pages to load over 3g than a WIFI connection.

Yes I know, but the difference in loading speed isn't very important to me. Most of the time I would be on WiFi at my house or GFs place anyway. Mostly text and thumbnails on mobile data.

250MB is tons enough for text based communications, makes deal attractive and sweet for those who have a smartphone already with 1GB+ data plan but no tethering but needing a laptop to process less than 250MB of text documents, emails and ocasionally on the road away from wifi.
Thanks. Data is the best bit. Enough for emails and light browsing. Plus you end up with a 3G laptop.
Quick question for anyone that owns this laptop, purchased this laptop via the recent Argos deal.
Tested it yesterday and when playing youtube on any browser IE/Chrome was getting intermittent buzzing sound. Anyone else experience this or common issue with this laptop? Thanks
Does anyone know if the PC SIM socket is unlocked or locked to HP data ?

OK, so I have had this lappy a couple of days now and here are my opinions of it , bear in mind of course that it is in the under £200 bracket:

Unsurprisingly I find that the track pad can freeze/become laggy momentarily with several windows or tabs open, especially if watching video clip in HD.

Apart from that it does everything (except gaming obviously) no problem.
Screen is fine for my day to day needs (browsing ebay, email, gumtree, Office apps etc.)

Office 365 works on it with out any problems.

I havent used the cloud storage, saving everything to a usb drive, nor have i downloaded windows 10 for it.

The keyboard has white square tiles (similar to scrabble tiles) and they contrast well against the blue keyboard making them easy to see in dim light.
The battery life is excellent (4-5 hours use)

Overall i would recommend this computer for people who need to be productive on the move. (the self-employed, students, commercial travellers, truck drivers etc.) it sounded like it suited my needs, and so far i would say it has met them. It doesnt do anything brilliantly but it does do everything adequately.

Well I did say in my OP that its not for everyone but...I didnt think it would get slaughtered either. I think its great for the money myself.

The 250gb mobile data per month is through a company called foggdata, who in turn contract 3 to provide it in the uk.

Yes, and the website says it includes all relevant countries, which seems to include France, Spain & Italy! Is my reading correct? "Your included monthly data package supports roaming in all countries where HP DataPass is available."

I read it that way too.
I think I posted this deal on the wrong day - there had been a post for an 11inch hp stream in the same colour for £149 the same or previous day that went hot, and I think people were assuming this was the same deal/lappy with a 2 inch bigger screen for £50 more.
Ah well, hey-ho!

Yep, morons & sheep effect! This can be had for £179 in the 11" version (with the data - £1.25/mth for 250MB possibly roaming data)! It is a question of £20 + lighter VS bigger screen (for me I would go 11.6 even without the £20 saving - I say that typing on my 2 year old 11.6" laptop, having preferred 13.3" but bought this due to price - never once thought that it was too small, except when trying to show two people something on it - three people huddled round it felt silly).

You should post it, maybe you could word the description better than I? Possibly get a better response.

Note: at £1.25 pm for 2yrs datapass, the 13.3 is £10 cheaper deal overall. Weird.

I doubt it, but if anyone wants to, go ahead - I think TCB was offering about 1%.

Ended up going with a tablet myself, so won't be able to confirm on the roaming. Did the usual spin cycle from 7" tablet up to 15.6" laptop & round & round many times! Chose the tablet based on info like the above - suggestions in another thread - a lot of good info is posted that way these days - I suspect largely to avoid the annoyance of seeing your deal get iced by the M&S!

EDIT: It also avoids the Hot Tab to Ebay vultures too!

Sorry I did not make my point very well - the 11.6" is £179 including the data but I feared M&S may point out that it was already posted £30 cheaper, hence adding the £30 extra equates to £1.25 per month for the data (probably worth it if you travel to the countries it may work in a few weeks over the 2 years or if you happen to need data regularly but in small doses in the UK).
