All HP Laptop Discounts, Offers and Sale - May 2019
How does it take the 10% off? It doesn't seem to be doing it for me? Is the offer over?
Cheers. The processor isn't massively fast, but it gets similar scores to the Intel Pentium 4415Y in the new Surface GO which I've been using for a while now at work and that is plenty fast enough in Windows, also comparable to something like a 3-5th generation Intel i3 U processor.
Glad you are happy with it and were able to benefit from the offer. I've not yet used mine much yet, but it feels very snappy and the battery seems to hold up very well. Build quality is excellent. I'm loving the keyboard: so much travel and very tactile.
Got mine today. Fantastic machine. Premium build and superb performance. Battery life so far is ground breaking. Thanks for the heads up op
Current rumours are 4Q19 or 2020 but it's all speculation. Still 14nm process, quad core, only small gains. Possibly one 6 core model (i9?). These "Whiskey Lake" are a refresh of 8th gen (small gain) and tbh haven't been out that long. No point delaying a purchase.
any idea of when the 9th gen U series will be out?
So no one gets caught out offer ENDED at 9pm
brrrrr, this is going rate for a 7th gen cpu and the bare minimum size of ssd
7th gen, 128 ssd - £500? chilly for me.
Perhaps it's this Lenovo Ryzen, only drawbacks are, the poor TN screen and the battery life https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-14-full-hd-laptop-v330-14arr-ryzen-2500u-8gb-ram-256gb-ssd-36959-laptop-outlet-3215317?page=2#comments-new
Can u post the link plz?
Re Sprintz From Argos Feb review "On paper all specs seems to be fine, but somehow it doesn't work, to the point that I had to return it. Save yourself a disappointment and spend few extra £ to get better machine."
Just ordered and had considered a pricier (£299) ASUS with a bigger screen (though HDD)...however still prefer this HP with SSD https://www.argos.co.uk/product/8887270 Also considered a cheaper (£248.97) Lenovo variant but poor screen and no SSD: https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-320s-15ast-15-6-amd-a6-laptop-1-tb-hdd-grey-10187492-pdt.html? Therefore the John Lewis peace of mind and HP brand was pretty good given the cut price £100 discount
Not to go into the whole Apple - bad debate, but watch some Louis Rossman vids on macbooks - they are not as premium as people think they are.
From my 12 years experience of repairing laptops, hp def not my fav manufacture but by far not worst. this looks good vaule for money, ain't bad price for spec. n it's not one of there bad chassis either... 95% of hp machines aren't premium... this def isn't but what u expect for sub £500. The drivers were more than likly the wifi cards manufactures not hp's....however we did get alot with wifi problems...if still having the issue with it 9/10 a bios update for ur model, from hp web site, sorts it.
That maybe true, but I still wouldn't but one, their software support isn't great. If it was just one I could have said it was a one of. But I had the same on two separate laptops. You may have had a different experience, I'd say you were lucky unless HP have upped their game
Get what you pay for? With the exception of Apple and some other niche brands, HP is the most premium laptop manufacturer.
I would buy another HP laptop ever, I've had problems with drivers. WiFi stops working, then forced to buy an external WiFi dongle because HP drivers were rubbish. on another HP laptop the hinge gave way. Basically you get what you paid for..
Is this the best £500 or below laptop deal around at the minute? If so, I'll order. Otherwise, if there is another option, can you please advise. I need one asap. Thanks in advance,
It may have been that price in Feb when you posted, but sometime after that date it went up to £549.99, which it was on-line on 9th April when I started looking at laptops. When I went in store on 10th the ticket price was £549.99, but the assistant noticed the price had dropped overnight when checking stock levels. I was just glad I hadn't ordered it on-line the day before. Although JL has a pricing policy that if the price drops within 28 days of purchase they will refund the difference, so I will keep monitoring the price for the next 4 weeks.
It's been at this price for the past 6+ weeks. I have posted it a while ago. Worth a reminder though https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-14-full-hdlaptop-amd-ryzen-5-quad-core-8gb-ram-256gb-ssd-amd-radeon-rx-vega-8-3-years-warranty-499-john-lewis-partners-3188148
Is the ram dual channel?
Non backlit, sorry. That's ok but I think this is still too pricey. Has been cheaper from AO previously.
Back to £379 now, got one just in time!!
Just ordered too!!
Just bought it my son loves it works really fast and comes with a two year guarantee
So now this is only £279, is it worth it!!??
Bought one of these, that are supposedly A1 graded, which by their own words means "as new". I didn't even manage to get through windows setup before the fan started to fail spectacularly, which brings into question whether they even test the "refurbished" systems they're selling, let alone refurbish them. Either that or they have extraordinarily low quality assurance standards. Have submitted a return request, will see where it goes from here. I would strongly urge avoiding this deal for the time being. Update: Still waiting for them to even action my return request, most likely gonna have to repair the laptop myself. Their customer support is the worst I have ever dealt with, they were faster to send me an email about upgrading to their extended warranty than they were to actually honour said warranty. Hopefully this will save someone a lot of time and money, especially someone without the knowledge to do laptop repairs for them self, as you'll receive no support from this company seemingly after they have your money.
How does it compare to this? https://m.dell.com/h5/m/r/outlet.euro.dell.com/Online/SecondaryInventorySearch.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukdfh1&l=en&s=dfh&sign=PXhcOSHtr1T4IOw%2fPR7UdZ0jsxLIYYQPtYdzE3kIzoZhFQHnt9CcKvjDVZyW2NyHQbIjGNG4aJrXv20%2bKD2SCOd5d6rYGbRBiXiUj5WTCdXakTjPNpuLjHP93tAE%2beds%2fxBCg1HrazEUCSiTROdb3%2bVvOA2d7m4RCadehu40R80%2fyMd5h8fZpOqnZcBnC4CS9er2bcx6DsuyEx4qYA9C17bh9yHXeGEma%2bn2pErnA5s6qsfhz%2f23lg%3d%3d
Mine came yesterday too, great machine. Does your capslock key occasionally flash when starting up then the computer doesn't boot? I've flashed a BIOS update over it this morning but can't test extensively because I'm at work. Also when in tablet mode if I tilt the device it sounds like the fan starts groaning.
Came today can't fault
SSDS are cheap at the minute. Could pickup a 500gb SSD for £50~ https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/western-digital-wds480g2g0a-wd-green-ssd-solid-state-drive-480-gb-internal-25-sata-6gbs-for-4499-delivered-amazon-uk-3206124 Ignore me it's m.2 apparently.
Ended up buying this laptop in same condition from a shop on ebay (as an auction) for £635 with shipping with over 6 months of manufacturer warranty left. Really happy with my purchase.
such a great deal - I'm so happy with my purchase!
Seems like a good deal but not much heat here and still in stock. Wondering what do people think is wrong with that deal?
Such a great deal - and very happy with the laptop!
2019 and no SSD (annoyed)
I had mine convertible for over 2 years and quite a heavy use as used by me and my wife..Wish it had proper graphics card,but still can play older games without problems. Thin,light and build quality is superb tbh
Just checked and deal is still active until midnight today. Not sure what you're seeing? You know you have to apply SAVE12 e-voucher right?
729GBP deal is off
Was this £600 on the HP store? I started looking around in September/October and it's been at £699 on the HP Store every time I've looked except for Black Friday. We bought ours from Amazon at £649 and the price has been as low as £649 or £640 if you include marketplace sellers according to camelcamelcamel. The build quality on this model is very good. The Pavilion range is certainly built to a price and best avoided IMO, but there's nothing wrong with the build quality on this laptop. Hinges are solid and smooth. Material quality is fantastic and compares favourably with more expensive laptops.
Is HP build quality good enough to risk £650 on a convertble? Or will it break or begin to fall apart at Warranty + 1 month?
Anybody else ordered this? Can you comment on the quality of the product received?
Ah damn it, if only it had numeric keypad. Trying to something as good as this with it is proving a real challenge!
Pleased you are happy with it Woolman88 😃
Received laptop today. Laptop performs exceptionally well. My only criticism is that this model of Pavilion does not come with a backlit keyboard. Very happy with the purchase!
Thanks OP, just bought. The website shows that there are only 7 left!
I did. Returned it after couple of hours testing.
Been looking for a laptop. Would this be good for course work. The odd game and movies?
Have one of these and the only annoying thing is the quite high pitch of the fans, which seem to run all too often, even when I don't seem to be doing anything too strenuous on it? But decent machine to be fair. PAid around this money in CPCW, but no freebies and only 12 months Warranty, so HOT for the extras alone!
I have the 14inch HP with i5-8250U (integrated graphics) processor with same connections (including USB-C) and great battery. Screen (assuming same technology) has low brightness but great detail (1080p) and small bezel so the overall footprint is relatively small.
Keep an eye out for refurbs on Amazon - This was £100 less last week https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-pavilion-156-inch-laptop-5-8gb-ram-1tb-128gb-ssd-ryzen-5-2500u-refurb-38999-amazon-sold-by-electrical-deals-3201267 - There was only a couple available tho, I'm gutted I didn't get one.
I see there's a difference of opinion whether this is a good deal or not for the spec. I don't know much about laptops but this is the spec I was looking for for light day to day use. Please can someone advise whether I should just get this? Wait for Intel's next processor to come out and be a price drops? Get this instead? Thanks everyone https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/lenovo-v130-core-i5-7200u-4gb-256gb-ssd-dvd-rw-15.6-inch-windows-10-laptop-81hn00fauk/version.asp
The thing that might set this apart is that the SSD is M2. Does anyone with knowledge of the chassis type know if there's a spare slot in there for a second sata-style HDD/SSD?
Expectations differ from what's actually out there in the market. There's not enough of these specs for the money out there. Even then I'm skeptical of this deal because of the sheer level of bloatware on HP laptops. I prefer a clean windows 10.
Interesting. Glad I read the comments on this thread. I've been searching for a capable but cheap enough (Under £500) laptop for leaving at work to play some older games (Battlefield 4, Modern warfare series, CS:Go and maybe some newer ones but not AAA titles) so some of the items you listed may be ideal for me. I'm tempted to hold out until the 16-series cards are intigrated and see if I can find a deal with a 1050ti.
Bought this for my son for £100 less: https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/lenovo-v330-14arr-ryzen-5-2500u-8gb-256gb-14-inch-windows-10-laptop-81b1001euk/version.asp
I know that, I never said it does. I just use the best resolution on my laptop for typing or ppt and a 4K on my big screens with movies at the same time. My point is just because some people won’t benefit, other users will benefit from this. It’s like voting cold on a deal that isn’t useful for yourself but useful for others. Who needs an i7 in a small form factor? GCSE student no way. Lots of photographers and engineers who can.
The resolution of your laptop screen in no way determines the picture quality you output over casting devices
Not quite. If you’re media hungry and have a decent career, you can use 2K on your laptop screen while Miracast to a bigger screen. Great for presentations in lecture theatres or video in the background.
4k seems a silly option considering the tiny improvement in picture quality on such a small screen at the cost of battery life
Saying that..i had same issue with the first yoga c930 and had to return it for same reason. The new models at the start tend to have some problems..
Many thanks for your inputs! Much appreciated!! (highfive)
Yes. I'm loving mine and so is the other half. Much better than my previous laptop. Great screen and keyboard is nice to type on. Love the face recognition to get in to Windows.
Any feedback after initial usage?
Can anyone recommend a pen that works with this?
Thanks. Ordered 2 from Amazon. One for me and one for the other half. Our previous laptops are quite old so they could do with renewing.
Yeah, the keyboard got warm on the one I had, not too bad but warm enough, I had to undervolt it to get the temps down, is your as it is out the box? Looks like it runs fairly cool, cooler than i remember, it was just under heavy load it sounded like it had jet engines attached to cool it down.
Above is under benchmark so it's about as stressful as it can be. The metal above the keyboard gets very toasty and you can feel warmth from the keyboard. I've not done a stressful game over 2 hours as yet so couldn't say what it would be like after 14hr :P
Thank you, what's it like under heavy gaming?
So at 25% volume on the laptop you can just about hear the fan. its there but sounds like a breeze of air rather than a whirring blender noise. Typing this now the fans are on and I can clearly hear them with no sound as they continue to bring the temps down. They took about a minute to slow down to a very quiet level, 3 minutes to inaudible/off. Personally I'm more than happy with it, bearing in mind the horesepower it contains it copes very well.
I haven't checked the GPU temps during load but whilst you can hear the fans during resident evil 2 I wouldn't say that they were anywhere near maxing out. I'll have a play when I get chance and get you some data
