TBH, that is the least of it's problems.


I know the 32GB storage will let you down at the next Windows 10 feature update.

However if it had 1920x1080 screen, might just make a reasonable RDP machine

So many reasons not to buy in the title

I'd recommend this with Full-HD IPS, long battery life, metal casing but i'd wait for a discount price or the R11 two in one which it's on offer, perfect for kids with touchscreen.

Yeah I might return it actually, quite slow and laggy. The screen resolution is low so watching video isn't a great experience

Yes, sorry it actually says Windows 10 in the title and I didn't see it. I wonder what version though as it's the same grief to go up to the anniversary edition.

Granted installing via USB may take away some of the issues but unless it's done on a clean machine you'll struggle. Once you have the latest Windows, the updates, MS Office and a few other minor programs you don't have a lot of space left.

Apps can be directed to microSD's if it has a slot but overtime you'll be shuffling data around and removing items due to lack of space.

Perhaps it's best to say if you are slightly techie then it's workable otherwise look for a 64GB version.

If you want to go the Windows 10 route you may struggle to update it due to lack of space. It's possible but as with a lot of 32GB devices it may not always be straight forward. Hence why a lot of 32GB are being sold cheap at the moment.For browsing, emails, social media, youtube etc this devices are perfect. Personally though I would go for a 64gb because of the upgrade and space issues.

I hope you don't get the screen flickering problem that I had. They don't have any screens to replace the faulty one's.

Still, at £120 it's well worth the gamble. Screen flickering aside, it's a cracking tablet.

Good luck with it.

That's a feature that is coming - it's experimental at the moment.

Is this old Windows 8 stock clearance or a newer Windows 10 machine?
If it's Windows 10, I guess this is a OK price for what's essentially a low end Chromebook competitor.

Then it won't connect to wifi at all. Turns out that there are no hardware drivers installed at all. So I had to go to the Hp website on another computer and download the drivers. I finally get the thing working and the trackpad keeps randomly freezing and its laggy on most websites.



​remember it's only suitable for light use eg surfing .. it's cpu isn't that powerful, small amount of RAM and relatively slow ssd (etc) .. but it's cheap as chips .. if you hit website with loads of scripts it will slow to a crawl .. try an ad blocker, noscript etc .. as long as you know it's limitations it's fine - if I saw a similar price for the 13 inch version I would go for that as the screen is a bit small for my old eyes ;-)

picked one up for the wife looking for something compact and lightweight with decent battery life. It arrived in good condition and updated to W10 using a USB fairly easily though I needed a USB mouse to select options during installation.

I think this will be fine as a lightweight portable - it only really needs to surf the net and use Word (like most laptops) its not for gaming or video editing.

It does look a bit plasticy - but its only £90

Oh and it doesnt come with the cloud storage - that seems to have expired Dec 2015

Overall a decent deal - heat added

You can remove a user password on Windows 8/10 using Lazesoft … You can remove a user password on Windows 8/10 using Lazesoft (www.lazesoft.com) as long as it's not a login using an email password. There are ways and means to recover the data from your laptop. Use a local independent computer shop who have a good reputation. I haven't used this laptop but I'd try this procedure:Get in to the BIOS by going to the login screen and choosing restart this pc, hold down shift whilst clicking on restart. Now you'll get to a troubleshooting screen, you'll be able to get to the UEFI BIOS this way and then you should be able to disable UEFI boot and secure boot, then boot it with Parted Magic on USB stick, once that Linux distro boots you should be able to read all the files on your internal storage and transfer then to an external USB device. This is technical yes, but this is how some one could fairly easily access the data.

I dare say your impression of low end Windows devices is clouded somewhat … I dare say your impression of low end Windows devices is clouded somewhat by things like the Dell running normal hard drives. The eMMC drives in things like the X360 almost entirely eradicate the lag that spinning drives bring to the OS...I did consider picking up a Chromebook just to test how (/if) they have improved. However, articles like THIS suggest the platform has kind of stagnated. Windows 10 will likely resolve the usability issues of Windows 8.1 --- leaving us with a secure, fast OS that is just as quick as a Chromebook on equivalent hardware, but which also has a limitless amount of extensibility.Remember also that Firefox has significantly surpassed Chrome in performance and stability. Yet with a Chromebook, you don't get to choose the best browser. You just have to use what Google have given you.Also, you are essentially an advertising mule, tied in without choice to Google's services, and to Google Drive (which is significantly more expensive than OneDrive for instance).Basically, Windows gives you choices, and very few compromises. Google gives you what they want to give you....and you have no alternatives.Windows 10 + Cortana integration (looks superb!) + the Spartan browser will significantly surpass ChromeOS in my opinion. & even if Microsoft's new browser isn't all it is cracked up to be, we can still choose Opera/Chrome/Firefox...



All good points until you mention the word secure, Windows is a victim of it's own success there...huge market share simply make sit a bigger target

....I do totally agree on the versatility of Windows over ChromeOS..My day job is looking after data centers full of Windows (and ESX) servers so I know all of the functionality Windows offers...(yes i do work for HP hence my probable bias towards their hardware :-) )

...but for no frills computing I still find Chrome OS faster, it's footprint is small and i just find it runs faster on like for like hardware. I am fortunate that dual booting with Linux is an option for me which helps to alleviate the versatility downside to the chromebook but i appreciate this isn't an option for everyone...

Don't get me wrong I'm not knocking this notebook, I think it's great piece of kit at this price...I just think that reviews touting it as a 'Chromebook' killer are a little misleading...
Most of the people i know who own Chromebooks buy one as they actually wanted a chromebook and as an alternative to Windows as they actually want something different. Not because it's better or worse than windows.
With notebook prices this cheap just get both :-)
xboxfree60

cold chromebooks are much better optimised



On a technical level, how could they ever be 'better optimised' when they are running one of the slower and less stable internet browsers.
Chrome isn't what it once was! My time with Firefox over the last few weeks has shown me that (& numerous online reviews testify to that fact too)

In my home we also have both a £200 HP chromebook 14 with Haswell chipset and a £1200 HP Ultrabook (840 G1) as well as counteless tablets and mobile devices and when anyone in my home wants to quickly do something on the Web the first device that gets picked up is always the chromebook.

Windows 10 will likely resolve the usability issues of Windows 8.1 --- leaving us with a secure, fast OS that is just as quick as a Chromebook on equivalent hardware, but which also has a limitless amount of extensibility.

Remember also that Firefox has significantly surpassed Chrome in performance and stability. Yet with a Chromebook, you don't get to choose the best browser. You just have to use what Google have given you.
Also, you are essentially an advertising mule, tied in without choice to Google's services, and to Google Drive (which is significantly more expensive than OneDrive for instance).

Basically, Windows gives you choices, and very few compromises. Google gives you what they want to give you....and you have no alternatives.

Windows 10 + Cortana integration (looks superb!) + the Spartan browser will significantly surpass ChromeOS in my opinion. & even if Microsoft's new browser isn't all it is cracked up to be, we can still choose Opera/Chrome/Firefox...
cold chromebooks are much better optimised

Umm....why would this need an i5 when it is already near enough matching … Umm....why would this need an i5 when it is already near enough matching the equivalent Chromebooks for speed (and of course has a huge amount more versatility)?!http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/04/06/review_hp_stream_x360_convertible_laptop/?page=3"The Reg VerdictAre HP’s new Stream machines really Chromebook killers? As a fan of the Chromebook it pains me to say it, but yes. The x360 is as well made and stylish as most Chromebooks but offers the full Windows experience which, at version 8.1, ain't at all bad.Once you install Chrome and the Google apps launcher you pretty much have a Chromebook anyway. The build quality, design and basic hardware of the x360 are all better than I expected for the price making it a hard machine to criticise. ®"



Yeah i did read that Reg review..looks a very good bit of kit for the money.If i was in the market for a low end windows notebook i would buy one....but I can only go by my personal experience of cheap Windows notebooks versus chromebooks....one of my Kids has a recent Dell Inspiron 15 which is very similar in spec to this x360 and although i agree completely this is a more versatile device for simple browser based tasks the chromebook was designed to perform the low end Windows machines just aren't as fast.
In my home we also have both a £200 HP chromebook 14 with Haswell chipset and a £1200 HP Ultrabook (840 G1) as well as counteless tablets and mobile devices and when anyone in my home wants to quickly do something on the Web the first device that gets picked up is always the chromebook.
