It’s a balls up, and not a marketing technique. There is zero goodwill to be had from pulling a stunt like this for any company serious about developing a loyal customer base. What’s more likely is control in place to pull available inventory, should there be a massive uptick in orders for an item, possible due to a mid price such as this.

Heat from me, Buddy! One of the best, well thought out 2-bay NAS solutions available. I have the DS416play (4 drives), and it gives me an excellent day-to-day NAS capability, with up to 12TB of 'safe' storage available (4 x 4TB HGST NAS drives). I also keep an identical drive in the components cupboard, should one of the 4 drives fail. Swap out, and in a few hours, everything is back to normal. However, I do also use cloud back-up - after all, my house could burn down!

Looks like this is available again. Would this be a lot better than my current laptop?
Lenovo Flex 2-14" - i3 4030U 1.9ghz, 6gb ram and 1tb HDD

I haven't done much with it so far. I tested out a couple of HD videos on YouTube and it looked fairly crisp. I've not had a HD screen before, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

I didn't want to stream anything from Putlocker until I have some internet security, just in case I wreck it.

I'm going to set up a Steam account soon and play some older PC games. Fingers crossed they're not too taxing for the graphics card or processor.

It's a nice looking machine. I like the brushed metal effect and I thought the speaker bar was of a decent quality and loud volume.

So far, so good!

On this the hi=res screen will take a fair bit of power to both display things and take a toll on battery life. rest of spec seems good ,



I agree that it's a little bit slower than an i5 (the tradeoff for being fanless), but I don't think I'd agree in it being not much cop. Benchmarks about 17% slower than the i5-6200u. This is a work machine and I use it pretty heavily, with 20-30 tabs open in Chrome, alongside Outlook, Excel, Word, InfoPath and Skype for Business, and I don't experience any slowdown. I wouldn't try running games on it though

Can't comment on the battery life on mine yet as I haven't had it long enough.

HP Desktop computer with awesome processor. I think this seems to be a great deal for a high power processor if that's what you're after. £480 is a good price for a full blown desk… Read more

According to pcworld business the pc is as follows: pcworldbusiness.co.uk/cat…19P HP 280 G2 - Micro tower - 1 x Core i7 6700 / 3.4 GHz - RAM 8 GB - HDD 1 TB - DVD SuperMulti - HD Graphics 530 - GigE - Win 7 Pro 64-bit (includes Win 10 Pro 64-bit Licence)...

Cons:
It only has 180W Power Supply Unit (PSU) which means if you want to add a graphics card and another hard drive you will have to upgrade it.

It's a Micro case!... v small... might give major issues putting in other devices such as a powerful and often large graphics card... see http://www.buildcomputers.net/computer-case-sizes.html

Whilst I'm considering it I think there are several aspects to beware of... the PSU needs enough power to supply all of your devices (and even the GTX 960 I'm considering wants around 90-100W just for itself... putting a larger / more powerfull PSU in a micro case is most likely difficult.

You can almost gaurantee for this low price it would have a stock CPU fan = cheap and noisy... anywhere between £20-£30 could buy you a much better fan, which you would have to be careful would fit into a Micro Case, or go water cooling for £50+ which would fit... although a micro case usually only has between 2-4 fans.

You can almost gaurantee for this low price the memory would be the slowest possible for an i7-6700 which I believe is PC4-17000 Effective speed 2133Mhz = not a big deal.

Pros:
Windows 10 64 bit = roughly £160!
I7-6700 = roughly £290
Compatible motherboard = £50+
then consider the Hard Drive, the PSU, the DVD Drive = roughly £100

All of the pros alone make it viable to purchase a midi case and 500W+ PSU for circa £100 and it still be a bargain!

Agreed about the HP being cleaner, I've got the Dell Venue 11 Pro at home which is the predecessor of the machine I linked and while it's been good to me the pogo pins on the keyboard dock have died (pushed in too far, not sure how to fix) after a year of use. The desk dock doesn't use those pins though, it uses the central connector like the HP does here for its keyboard dock.

I would be looking to buy a cheap windows XP off eBay that meets the criteria in HP T&Cs
https://tradeuptohp.com/gb/en/pages/tradein/terms

buy an old XP for £30ish then send it to HP for £200 cashback
