I suppose Google watching everything you do is better? Or cameras tracking every movement in cities like London? Or the soon to be rolled out government app that will track your contacts too, but with no clarity on how actually the data will be used and when the project will end with data deleted?
I'd be more worried if the UK Government had commissioned China to build nuclear power stations here. Hang on a second...

there are two versions of this laptop. both has 256gb ssd but one version is loaded with an additional 1tb hdd as well. so you would be able to boot from ssd which is fast, and still enjoy 1tb big storage. I think this version is 256gb ssd only.

thanks
Can't find the 256ssd/1TB version on their website so maybe sold out?
Shame probably would have gone for that for £550!

I personally don't care about apps tracking where I go, or where i shop...it's a minor invasion of privacy...

National Security is more of a concern, although maybe not from using this laptop. More so key network infrastructure. Huawei have shown us that they are either complicit or inept in this regard.

This again. Huawei have no access to the core network, even if they found a way to sniff off data there are so many failsafes in place it would not go unnoticed.

Whilst I have my reasons to dislike Huawei (Used to work for them rolling out 4G/5G wireless networks) they are not a treat to national security. Or spin it this way. They are as much a threat to national security as Samsung, Nokia and Ericsson.

They don't now, but they did... and could have had. And may again in the future.

Regardless, people need to know this company cheated their way to the top, they are nothing more than a rich counterfeit company.

No spin, i don't benefit or lose personally by Huawei fortune. Just stating facts.

There is a very big difference between China assembling electronics for other companies and third party chinese companies knocking out cheap stuff. Just saying.

But, as a casual i guess you can lump the two together if you like

Anyway, Voted cold. for the spec. this is frankly par price.

When you consider companies like Foxxcon manufacture devices for Apple, Samsung, LG with a largely Chinese supply chain, the difference is only the quality of the Chinese components.

If products were just about hardware, however software is a major part and most chinese software/firmware is mostly dreadful.

if not for Android, Windows etc... Huawei would be fairly unknown.

Having worked in the Telco industry for 20 years, most recently at Huawei UK i would like to think i have a slightly deeper understanding of how the various layers of the Telco network as a whole works. If you want to know why there are so many failsafes in the network. ESN800 which is the new comms network provided by EE/MBNL.

EE have been using Huawei BTS (39xx and most recently 59xx series for 5G) for at least 8 years. They are tested and proven not to have backdoor exploits. If you have an understanding of wireless network topology you'll know.........

Agree to an extent but regional, specific builds are bench tested more so in the case of Android and Windows. Apple don't have that issue so much.

Touching on Software used in the Telco network. Any software, this includes BTS firmware, software on hardware in the network is penetration tested and evaluated by an independent body for compliance.

I was a Network Engineer for Cisco for 15 years, was out in South Africa in the 90's, then I moved back to England and was coding VXworks modules for British Aerospace.

Don't assume someone elses knowledge pal, that supercilious tone won't work with me, i've probably forgotten more than you know.

Also, i do know that Huawei omitted to update VXworks on their telecom hardware.

anyway, i made my point here. we agree on some stuff and disagree with others... such is life. thats what it's all about different opinions.

Yes,, everything for British Aerospace was pertaining to wireless. In fact a lot was very similar in function to todays Mesh technology.

That's how people loose focus.
Outside of the boycott China. Anyone got thought's on the deal itself.

Main thing I would notice is the missing Huawei Freebuds 3 that were in the previous deal. Obviously 256GB SSD is also quite small. Outside of that seems decent vs the previous deal right? But the freebuds were a big part of the previous deal.
ilepak15/04/2020 11:29

Why? Has the laptop got a virus?


Not a virus, but some bloatware, which may have possibility to leak your privacy to China.
I am Chinese, it is very common, even been written into Chinese law, to install backdoor spy software in Chinese ROM/OS.
That is very normally for Chinese people to avoid the spy, especially for journlist, Dissident to reinstall windows 10, after received the laptop.
Boot into factory Windows 10 and link your Microsoft account to get digital activation. Then use windows installation media creation tool from:microsoft.com/en-…s10 and reinstall windows 10. Install all drivers from the hardware factory website.e.g. Intal, realtek, AMD (not from huawei)
Pulled the trigger. Hopefully a good deal. Needed a mouse so that comes in handy although the RRP of £40 seems not what it's typically selling for. Big pity about the missing ear buds, not too bothered about the bag or cheap wireless speaker.

Here we go. China this China that...if everyone really hates China then I suggest u no longer use ur iPhone, your iwatch, your TV, xbox, play station, mobile phone, car depending on make and model, go to the gp, use oyster cards, bank cards for wireless chip,. Basically just stay stark naked, on a deserted island.. Then you can boycott China. It is the world own fault for outsourcing to the regions where commodity is cheap.. Really cheap and then sell it to us punters for stupid silly money. So u can't blame China because if the US could they would.
I have this laptop from a previous deal, really fast and reliable thus far.

The world relied heavily on China to make everything buucase they can escape taxes and costs per demand. Without China you would be enjoying the delights of playing hi def fortnight on ur beautiful TV, every single electrical component in the world some way or the other was made, manufactured or put together in China.
