Either way, 3000 difference (without knowing what chips you compared) isn’t a lot in the scheme of thingsThe biggest single change in PCs in the last decade has been SSDs, that will make a 10 year old PC fee quicker than a brand new one with a mechanical drive. That’s why I don’t think an older i7 is a bad thing at all, it’s just not necessarily better than an i3 or i5 from the same generation.


I Don't disagree that there is more to look at I got an old i5 Lenovo t430 and with a 120ssd it's perfect for daily tasks.

my original point was and still is people need to get over the i7,i5,i3 banding as it's just Intel's marketing making a difference and in that respect benchmarking does give you an idea what it will handle. I would say 3k is alot it's 60% more power then the old i5 as for models first results on Wikipedia for i7 page and lowest price i3 for now

It does look like laptops are more expensive now than they were a few months ago - exchange rates?

That said, at £800 this is a good price right now for a light, high spec, business laptop.
Complete rip off, it's like HP have set the price with other retailers. No way is this worth anywhere near the £2000 RRP!

This i7 Envy looks interesting. How does it compare against this deal that I recently got for £465.65:
hotukdeals.com/dea…770

How does the dual core i5 7200u (HP Pavilion) compare to the dual core i7 6500u (HP Envy) and how do the laptops compare in general? Is the HP Envy i7 worth the extra £260+ (50+%)? I'm finding the i5 7200u (HP Pavilion) lagging with 15 odd windows open plus at times I can hear some crackling) - Any feedback would be appreciated.

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.

That's a first gen i5 processor which is 1 year newer than my X200 and being honest wholesale/spares units about the going rate. Not saying it's a bad deal, just that I'm frustrated with SCC/SCH having decided to up their prices.

What I'm pointing out here is not that you didn't get a good deal, more than SCH trade have moved the boundaries. I picked up a B grade 8440p for £140 in August 2013. A short time later after I picked up that bargain (it still had 6months warranty) they upped the price to £168 so an increase of £28. The prices now vary in the last few weeks between £168 and £192 despite the fact that the hardware is another 3 years older since the price has increased. I check the pages nearly daily and have yet to see a single machine in their 'grade B' range to be cheaper than what I picked up 3 years ago.

Interestingly I'm unaware of any computers of note in the last 20 years that have appreciated in value as the curve is generally towards the dropping in value. This is the crux of my point that SCH have lost their way being a good value supplier to now just being average as I can get similar deals in about a dozen different suppliers with some cases being better listed to know what you are going to get. It's why I've not purchased from them in 3 years despite a number of successive purchases before that time and why I encourage others to consider buying elsewhere.
Edited by: "Astec123" 5th Aug 2016
I started buying from them in 2012 and never got such bargains, I paid more than that for a X61 (in 2012 though). My invoices on my account only start in 2013 as I think I bought the first few without creating an account, the first invoiced one is a X200 in Q3 2013 for £71.25. It was missing a key from the keyboard and had a crack in the case that was impossible to fix without epoxying it quite a bit. My dad still uses it daily! (I did replace the missing key)

I still think these are good value but personally I've always got excellent batteries (all HP machines with > 90% design capacity remaining) from the machines bought from SCCTrade.

They've got a few Elitebook 2560p/8460p machines for 88 quid, also some X201 and X220 machines for 88 quid too - woohoo! Must resist... I have enough already... sure what would I use them for...

I'm not so convinced, while it's a pretty a reasonable deal given the specs, it's a lot of risk to buy given that you have to get the PSU and risk it being a complete dud on arrival as they are sold as such with no helpful information. If you just purchased a 2570p it would be at from 2012 so now 4 years old.

I picked up an X200 in Q1 2013 which released in Q3 2008 as below (missing only a hard disk and otherwise in pretty much unused condition) so 4 years and 6 months old. The missing hard drive is one key way with SCH/SCC to get a machine that's isn't a wreck, otherwise you really just take a big risk.

Those sorts of deals were a regular feature on SCH trade but now there are very few unmissable deals from them which is a big shame considering how many items I'd purchased from them.

Have you no shame old boy ? My grandad fought in two world wars to prevent things like this and i will have you know that he has said even though he is in a wheelchair he is quite prepared to go over the trenches if her majesty declares war on who ever whenever. What makes me even more incensed is you use the word previously as though this is not the first time you have done this. What you have written sir belongs inside a comic tabloid which is trying to pass itself of as a newspaper , I will not give it respectability or publicity by naming it but may well at a future date give it / them Polonium. I asking all decent members to complain about articles like the one i have mentioned which clearly lower the tone of this great forum and for the editor to take strong action. The fact that i have interuppted my reading of Bondage and Sadism magazine shows quite clearly how angry i feel about this matter, I would like to think in the near future that we could have a B&S magazine as a sister forum to hotdealsUK, we are living in enlightened times.

I bought a probook from them last month, guaranteed to have a battery life of 30mins minimum - the battery only lasted about 5, but to their credit when I contacted them they refunded the cost of a replacement. A little bit of hassle but I use my laptop whilst plugged in the majority of the time anyhow so waiting a short time for a replacement battery was no big deal.

​The easy solution for that is to turn there trackpad off and user the trackpoint. That's what I did on a ThinkPad X220. Of course, some people hate trackpoints so that won't work for them.
