I did not like the feel of the pavilion when looking for a new laptop, the case sinks in when pressing keys

Onlyonedime

Amazing deal, shame it's sold out, not surprised though. I posted a acer swift 3 with similar spec but Ryzen 7. Was £100 more and doesn't have a dedicated graphic card.

My nephew needs a laptop for his upcoming GCSE’s then 6th form/college. Main issue seems to be battery life on these laptops. Also he likes to play games and I’m trying to edge him away from games on the laptop as it’s pushing the price up for a start and his Grandad doesn’t want games on his school pc! He plays Fortnite on the Xbox One and uses a Keyboard and mouse. Suggestions?

Please post if you spot any refurbs for £440

markbartlett

Get a gaming laptop, even if you are not a gamer. They have better cooling usually than the thinner laptops with 'U' processors, and the cpu's/gpu's are less likely to throttle back - lowering performance to keep within the 15w TDP. Keep an eye out for 7300HQ or 8300H CPU from Intel (i5 7th/8th gen) for around your £600 mark. Recently there was some grade a+ refurbished Acer Nitro 5's on here with the 7300HQ and GTX 1050 for a mere £440.

https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05534081 full specs of the laptop. Alternatively there are other laptops similar priced larger screen, better processor with SSD storage. https://www.ebuyer.com/835635-lenovo-v110-amd-a9-laptop-80td005puk. Granted the Laptop is only 128GB. But at £249.99 its expected to be. Atleast it isnt a 32gb emmc laptop. Also anything thats competitively priced with a Pentium N4200 is gonna perform similarly to the a6/a9-9***

Hey, thanks superfamking. Guess I've just been unlucky. AO are really good with customer service and will let me return it. 3rd times the charm?? I wouldn't go with HP if there were any other manufacturer's laptops out there with similar specs.

superfamiking

I bought the gold one for my daughter.....yes it's plasticky all over so not exactly a premium feel, but it isn't rattling like yours, Everything seems nice, solid and well fitted

superfamiking

Great little laptop! Bought it for my daughter and opened it this morning to stick in another 4gb ram and a 120Gb ssd I had lying around.... really impressed with it, so the build quality isn't quite there, but on performance it beats my £1400 i5 7th gen HP Spectre x360.

Rob_Gus

Good spec for the price but... I'm on my second and the case construction is atrocious; It rattles. If you tap the touch pad, rattle, tap the case rattle. I've never come across such a rattly poorly made case. Returned the first one as I thought it was a bad batch but the second was worse. I'm going to return again. it's just too bargain basement. Does anyone have a really rattly one? I got the gold one. If it's not as bad in silver or red I may go for that. Screen is good but a bit dim. The power is more than enough to run steam and I tested it with binary domain at full settings which works absolutely fine. Never expected to be able to game on this but it is quite capable for older titles. Start up is quick and it can easily run multiple Apps. Can't get anything for this spec elsewhere.

Don’t buy their refurbs ! I bought a 800 quid monitor from them(refurbished ), after 6 months it broke and they refused to repair or replace it. I had to raise a sec75 claim with my credit card. Luckily Acer has decent support and replaced it for me despite being refurbished, so I eventually dropped the claim .They are an absolute joke of a business

I emailed them to ask about the SSD drive size and it comes with 128GB.

simandoo

oh interesting, yeah 15 inch screen and it's only 720p or whatever. But the CPU scored 7700 on passmark so I figured it was good.

tawse57

Was it a 15 or 17 inch? You can often find them for that price either in sales or refurbished deals such as the Dell Outlet. It is when you come down below 15 inch screens that you get a huge spike with prices. But the manufacturers and retailers are taking the mick now offering i3, 128GB drives and 4GB of memory in laptops but then wanting circa £500 for them.

simandoo

Yeah, I got one 6 years ago that's an i7, 8gb ram, 1tb HDD, I swear I only paid £350 brand new! Seems crazy n

tawse57

No, none near that price. I was just making the point that Intel has controlled the CPU market for computers for so long that they have been able to maintain a high premium for CPU's whilst actually giving us very little in performance gain for a good 10 years now. This is now very obvious when, for the first time in a decade Intel has competiton from AMD, that Intel is suddenly capable of bringing out a new CPU range that is 50% faster than last generation chips. Look at i3 laptops now - they are reducing the size of the hard disks in them, reducing the size of the RAM, et are still asking for £400 to £600 for i3 laptops. Ludicously expensive. /rant over.

simandoo

No, no, I get you, wasn't having a go, was just asking if you had seen any as I'm in the market for something for simple stuff. Thought you might know.

should work in any board with a TB3 header, most mid-high x99 and z170 boards from the larger brands do (asus, gb, asrock)

CampGareth

Hmm, as far as I can tell all these add-in cards need a TB header on your motherboard as well as PCI-E 4x. If so they're not compatible with generic motherboards, but I haven't seen anyone try them without the header. Of course my old system doesn't have it but it's also too good to throw out, dual sandybridge xeons!

https://www.scan.co.uk/products/gigabyte-gc-alpine-ridge-10-card-thunderbolt-3-certified-add-in-card little pricey but not bad. Honestly with the cost of a dock making a new build entirely wouldn't be that much. something not ancient but still very capable... i7-3930k's (6core 12thread) are regularly under 100 on ebay, x79 boards can be difficult to find but not very. still DDR3 so you wont have to spent a grand on 16gb of ram (and probably have some ddr3 lying around already) and have a card running at full 16x without a bottleneck. if you're interested in looking into an overhaul, message me what you have and i can show you an idea of how much you could improve it on the cheap than just using this for a temporary boost (if your cpu/ram/hdd don't bottleneck it even more than the 4x limitation)

Formatting is dead easy. All you need is windows 10 on a stick (easily done), the drivers from HP site and you’re ready to go. The windows key is hardware related now, so once you install win10 and you connect to the internet is going to activate all buy itself. Software, from HP, I only have the drivers which is more than ok. Third parties, I have all the adobe suite , netbeans, eclipse and so much more. Browser, I only use Firefox. System optimisation is “playing” with the path for temporary folders, the way it handles the memory and so on. No antivirus !!! Absolutely no antivirus, as all of them slow system down. I only use the windows one(defender) and I’ve always been fine. And I go on dodgy sites, but I am careful with the content that lies on my computer. That’s all. If you want to optimise your win 10, there is great site (somehow forgot it’s name , but google it and it should come up within the 3-4 result) . The optimisation that I am talking about is the same I was using on win xp and I’ve done it in all the computers that I have installed or repaired so far. Hope it helps!!!

I am using one, although it’s a better one, i7 8th generation and Nvidia mX150. It’s good, sometimes the fan could be loud, it’s not on all the time. Only when you have loads of apps running, that’s when it starts to spin the fan. Last night I had about 10 folders opened, files all over the place, net beans, eclipse and dream weaver, outlook and a few Mozilla tabs. It was fine. One thing I did though, day 1. Formatted and installed with my choices and software, plus a small system optimisation. Running win 10 pro on it and it flies ....

Ebay/ gumtree if you’re in london. Look for hp 840 g2 and you must find it.

taz002dev

This is flawed judgement. As i said most of elitebooks come with TN even full hd ones. You are comparing a hp business with a consumer dell inspiron. Why don’t you compare same ranges to see what dell/lenovo offers? 800, 1000 series are the top range of HP offering. Build quality i can’t argue with that. The screens of HP unless you pay huge premium are utter rubish. Check reviews... Across 2 years I have owned 1x 820 g2, 3 x 1040 g3( this is hp latest notebook business flagship with rrp> £1500 still have one) , 1x 840 g2 still own one. Not even the 1040 is coming with IPS Screen. If you want IPS aka better screen you check serial before you buy at least on a used one. I have had 2 top range ddells too and couple of lenovos carbon x1 and all of them came with very decent screens. I am fussy about screens/ keyboard the actual whole mqchibe because of the work i do and if can afford i will get the best. Would always buy a used business top range laptop against a new consumer laptop. Warranty is way better. They usually last infinte, depending on abuse, better components, not that flashy, and very easy upgrade, rugged chassis... and could go on forever. Don’t ask why i don’t buy sMac books...

Yes I have the copper and ash grey one, that actually looks black and gold. People are different, just like everyone had different cars and under wears preference is different, so too with devices. Great that you are happy with your choices, that's what matters after all and not what some random chap like me on the internet thinks. Have a nice day. Check out the Lenovo led wireless projectors, they are pretty decent and cheap. If you want more higher end them go laser projector (Xiaomi) ultrashort throw. They work with laptops, android phones and iPhones and Mac. But totally wireless the Lenovo cheap one and no input ports. Unlike the costlier Xiaomi laser projector which had ports.

As far as Windows machines go, the Spectre is very nice. I thought the black and gold one looked stunning. Having actually handled one though, I honestly think it felt a bit creaky compared to a MBP. I also really hate Windows after switching to macOS as well, it’s really frustrating in comparison. I only switched to Macs about 3 or 4 years ago, had used Windows in it's various guises since 1994 when I got my first ‘proper’ PC. I still use Windows at work sadly, so really can make direct comparisons. As I mentioned earlier, I’m not a typical ‘Apple folk’ - in my experience they tend to have an iPhone, and perhaps a Granny Smiths! I have 3 Macs, because I love using them, an iPad Pro because it’s the best tablet money can buy, but use an Android phone because iPhones are awful in my opinion and experience.

TWD

No, it was an inspiron 5000 series but not a 2 in 1. Build quality is great but doesn't feel as premium as HP Spectre or Macbook Pro (we looked at both before buying the Dell). She's not that keen on the keyboard compared to her old mac book, but 80% of the time she's using it with a high def 27inch monitor and keyboard she picked up for around £100 and the spec of the Dell blasted anything else for the price range.

Was it the 5000 series 2-in-1? If so, I ordered one too and returned it. Screen was awful and build quality meh. Cannot beat HP Spectre build quality for the money.

That’s a much better decision if you can take the smaller screen. Though just look at the differences between 7th and 8th gen CPUs before you jump in as 8th will be mainstream soon and the prices will drop to what this is (month or two at a guess).

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 ;)

I never go on benchmarks alone as things like taking advantage of optimised instructions can give massive skewed gains (it may be too far back but remember when MMX came out in the late 90s and benchmarks showed it was miles faster but it wasn’t as things didn’t tap into it for a while). Either way, 3000 difference (without knowing what chips you compared) isn’t a lot in the scheme of things The 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.

The low spec 09 i7 is 5k and low spec 17 i3 is 8k benchmark isn't perfect but 3k is alot

Actually a first gen i7 quad-core probably wouldn’t be far off a 7th gen i3 as they haven’t really improved things that much, mostly power optimisation and instruction optimisation, IPC hasn’t gone up that much due to low competition. Ignoring what Passmark says anyway, in the real world, there’s been no massive improvements.
