If anyone gets this and wants to use Scan to Email with Hotmail/Live/Outlook then (on Virgin Media at least) you'll have to change the DNS in the printer settings to something like Google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

No DNS issue with Gmail though, you just have to change settings in Gmail to allow "Access for less secure apps".

I'd be interested to see if this deal can be had for the 16gig model (with the ram-price difference only but discounts intact). I was spec'ing this system for someone in Australia a few weeks ago and we couldn't get it under the equivalent of about £1900 for the 16gig model (they only have a GST (VAT) of 10% but everyone jacks prices up horrendously there, even more so than the UK).


Sadly they don't offer this combination; to get 16GB ram you also have to have a 1TB SSD which sends the price up to £1563.07 which is a hike too far IMO.

That’s disappointing. I had read from somewhere that it would be ‘well under £1000. The Asus looks good but I’m after a predominant tablet experience. I had a surface pro but poor battery life and flickering screen were a problem. I’m not even after a mobile experience. I just want a decent windows 10 tablet, with all day battery and a great handwriting experience.

Click through the "Get Deal" link,

Scroll to the bottom of that page, Under FAQ click "Claim your Cashback or Promotion"

On this page - scroll down to the last entry and click "HP Printer Cashback" ending 31/1/2018

And you will be on the Cashback page.


I tried posting a direct link but it defaulted to the HP French Homepage.

Hope this helps and if possible could you give me any feedback on my "Clunky Output Tray" query?

Is it a good idea for me to buy this, along with a decent vga, connect them to my laptop then connect them to a monitor for gaming purposes? I know it sounds like a pain and ppl would recommend getting a pc but just for the sake of argument, is it viable?
You gotta buy this for £200 then add another £280 for a worthwhile graphics card (1050 Ti's don't count as their performance is shocking for 2018 tbh). All just so you can play Minecraft at 200 fps instead of 150 fps.
£20 is a fair price for this rubbish, just to test and then would go with the rest of my junk in the loft.

Just to add to this, going by Geekbench scores - the top opencl score for a Frontier Edition is 185k. In this enclosure, mine benches at 179k.

Don't have a monitor connected, it's purely for compute - so if you're not sending display information back and forward, the performance hit is a lot lower.

You could probably build a GPU Less pc for well under £200 quid
Wow, I did not know something like this even existed!
I have a 1060m in my laptop and it runs everything I need on high atm but this would be great if I want to use a better card in the future!
I do not really need it right now but hopefuly in a year or 2 when I do need it they will be even cheaper
I'm rather incredulous at some of the prices of the alternatives to this product quoted in this thread.
I'd like to see a sff case, quality psu and thunderbolt to pcie x16 adapter, rated for graphics card throughput, from a UK supplier, new for £99.
Likewise, a gaming pc for £199 which doesn't rely on luck on eBay, and unrealistic prices from components.

That said, £199 is still a bit steep for me.

As regards why people would use something like this, I have an egpu (geforce 750ti on an express card GDC beast V8) connected to a x220 tablet which sits on a dock.
When docked, it is connected to 2 monitors, happily plays modernish games even though it's only a second gen i5, and the tablet screen is still available to use with the pen for scribbles. I can undock and take the laptop with me if needs be to use it elsewhere.
When there's a suitable stylus enabled surface type laptop which has an egpu solution, I'll update to that.
I paid £40 for my GDC beast, £30 for a 120w 12v fanless brick psu. I don't bother with a case for my setup. Plenty stable as it is.

Enormous ugly gap between touchpad and top cover. Anyone else have the same?

Haven't tested it fully but battery life looks to not be great, definitely nowhere near advertised 10 hours.

Worst of all though is the fan noise!

instaud.io/1C1W

That sort of sound at far from full load must be a defect unless anyone else is experiencing the same?

I'll test the battery life over the next few days and this is definitely being sent back if it's as bad as I suspect.

This is unacceptable from a company like HP. No wonder this model has no reviews at all anywhere except HP store.

HP customer service is awful. Placed an order middle of december for laptop after showing plenty of stock a few days later they say no stock and push back delivery to end of Jan. Apparently their stock levels on the website arent updated in real time. Crap.

Now bundled with the 3 year care plan instead of the Mixed Reality Headset
Discount code still works though
My guess is they've clocked the discount code getting used and have suspended the bundle. Gutted!

Hi Froggy, how do you know it's the Max-Q 1060? Just curious

You are right 25fps is 25fps, however games do not run at an exact frame rate, it varies as you play. When this happens it causes frame stutter because of the difference between the frame and the refresh rate of the monitor. GSync matches the monitor refresh rate to the games frame rate so all gameplay is smooth without stutter This allows you to play games with up to 120fps and you will get no frame stutter. You do not need performance hindering vsync anymore freeing up more power and you will get no more screen tearing.

What this also means is that you do not have to have super powerful GPU's anymore that have to hit frame rates much higher than what you would like to achieve for a smooth experience. Now you can have lower powered cards like the 1060 running at max efficiency where the frame rate will be vary between 60and 120fps and have a silky smooth gaming experience.

If you have a card which can hit frame rates of over 60 which the 1060 can on most, if not all games then those frames are completely wasted on a 60hz panel.

120hz GSync is a game changer

Anyone that is worried about the MaxQ shouldn't be, the real world difference between this and the full fat version is negligible, only on certain games is there a difference of 3fps. If this is not good enough for you either then you will also be happy to know that you can overclock this GPU and increase its clock by 100-200 easily. Putting it back to full fat.

Yes, the 1060 will give you far more of a performance boost in games than an i7. I'm not really sure why he suggested otherwise because the performance difference would be quite marked
