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.


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


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.


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.


Yes I tend to have several tabs and/or programs opent once (usually just office and Chrome though, occasionally using work related software ActiveInspire or Smart Notebook).

Looks alright however personally I would want an i3 over an amd chip. Not too sure on how much difference it would make but i3 gets the better write ups


Thanks for the insight, haven't bought a laptop in years so generally have no clue about them and their costs. What's your opinion on this?


I got the same one but with a 1TB HDD for 350 and that was over a year ago

cheeky request I know, does anyone have a spare licence :)


So I bit the bullet on this and paid (with a lot of groaning) the £60. Interestingly, I waited until the day after my existing subscription expired, it offered me an additional month free if I agreed to an automatic renewal- which I duly did. Immediately after it confirmed my new expiry date was June 17 next year, I cancelled the auto renewal and the date still remains at 13 months.... So effectively got an extra month free without commitment.


Thank you for that (both issues). I think I paid about £40 last year in someone's special deal. My subscription does not expire for nearly a month so I might just leave it a while and if nothing better comes up I'll take the Argos option. I had not come across CEX previously (although I had noticed the store in town); I thank you for confirming my views about buying software from there (or not - if you take my point).


I got a renewal for this for £42 last year (same time) from Amazon. It's £67 now and hasn't moved for months. My subscription expires today so am gonna have ot bite the bullet unfortunately. ALthough I get stuff from CEX (touch wood, no issues so far) I just wouldn't trust the software option.


I dropped into a branch of CEX in town today and discovered it is a secondhand software dealer (I had not come across it previously). There is nothing wrong with that as such, but the store did not have the MS licence I wanted in stock, so I would have to get it by mail. In that case I've decided there is too much risk as the item that turns up could easily be a new user only licence (which may be purchased elsewhere for about £30) rather than one I may use to extend my subscription by a year. I decided that the Argos offer is much safer (but I won't install the bundled software - the anti-virus program included in Windows is perfectly adequate). Thank you for posting the CEX option though - it was worth exploring.

70% Off - McAfee Total Protection 2018 Antivirus, 1 year subscription £24 McAfee  Store

McAfee All in One Antivirus Protection 2018. Trusted anti-virus and identity management for all operating systems. PC & Laptop, Computer, Mobile and Tablet Security.

For me, it's in the over burdening, heavy-handed, intrusive and resource hungry bracket. However, your bracket mileage may vary.


Defender is resource hungry and not very good AV solution when it comes to detection. However it's OK if you only goto known trusted websites and only download from reputable sites. Check AV-comparative performance benchmarks. M$ can definitely release better version but they will "Not" to avoid regulatory scrutiny. They definitely don't want another "Internet Explorer" saga with EU.


No just no. Gonna get cold in here.


Correct as all you are doing is buying a subscription deal to get the latest definitions, these days while we have defender doing this already you really are only buying Malware defences which this does pretty well, I suspect over the next few years defender will have this covered and these AV companies will have only business use.


For those who dont know McAfee is in the top notch bracket.Hot.

I'm using avast at the moment. Seems okay but does pester you a bit to upgrade to the paid version.


I'm sure it will have its critics but I've been using avg free for years and never had any problems. The only time we ended up with a trial version of Mcfee on a new computer it stopped so many programs from working properly. Not a fan at all


Nope they haven't and I also 100% agree. Persuaded by pc world staff to buy it when I was getting a replacement laptop. Ditched the subscription half way through and went back to Norton, have been using that for years.


Check for results on free and paid for anti virus programmes be for you decide on what to get.


Never pay for antivirus, the free ones are better. It's well known that McAfee is a resource hog and slows down systems

An interesting article and the link to recent study from AV-Comparatives is also good reading. The problem is, I'm totally confused by the whole issue! What will protect me?


Always get my code off of eBay paid 4.99 for unlimited devices Never had a problem been using McAfee for years


Couldn't pay me to install it. You know the products crap when its own founder hates it.


Well they would say that wouldn't they.


As with anything free there is always a disparity compared to purchasing a full version of a product where features will obviously be limited. Depending on a users browsing activity and that they stay well away of sites that are dodgy then the free version should be fine, but you should always do your homework when choosing any antivirus software as they are all not equal. 😏

You dont need McAfee antivirus on a tablet or indeed any other snake oil. Only slows the tablet down Samsung will be getting paid a royalty from McAfee to put that crapware on there

Was..... The gold standard. Rightly quoted by experts and came out top on reviews.. Same today? If it works for you and your happy with it then great. Let's be honest. Microsoft needs to lock the software down or come up with something better. Maybe this will happen with win 10 eventually.. Who knows..


Norton internet security is the best.


Gluten free. Changing gas and electricity suppliers. Taking multi vitamins and producing expensive we. Av. Pet insurance. All gets folks heated up. I think it's because some think it's wasting money. It's like my neighbour spending £400 on a full service every year when he is only do 70 miles all year. That gets me going! Can't stop people and they are free to choose.

Some years back, pre-installed McAfee was driving me nuts; Someone on HotUKD pointed me to this and it worked a treat. I bookmarked it for future removal of pre-installed McAfee.


Please don't buy this cr*p, its terrible and yuo are wasting your money.


Difficult to get rid of in my experience' once you've downloaded / installed it trying to remove it is a nightmare! A lot of free stuff about and most broadband providers give you an internet security package for 'free' with their service so don't buy until you've checked all the options.


dont bother with this as it does not stop malware or trojons. as for removing virus yes mcafee do that but they charge you extra on top of your sub and will remove it or give you your money back.i use lifesafe and it seems to work no problem but also covers everything from mobile phone to ipad,laptop etc. but the fact that if my kids lose their phones or ipads i can track them or remotely wipe them but the best part is it will take a pic if the user enters wrong passcode so you will have proof of who has your phone (device) and the location of where it was tried.


Info only - some BT Broadband contracts include McAfee Security - I only found out last week, it showed in my account home page - so was able to download. Just in case like me you are with BT and didn't realise.

Any AV should be better than none, was running paid for Bitdefender, but renewal cost seem steep to me, now using Bitdefender Free with BitDefender Anti-RansomWare...nearly went for Avira, always preferred it in the old days, Opera as a browser with pop up blocker, nothing is perfect but this seems to be working for me. Plus opera has built in vpn.


I'm using McAfee at the moment, (free for Bt broadband users) . what can I say? I did get hacked in to my computer (Win 10). lost all my photos (only). Virus has blocked Internet connection (both Ethernet and WiFi) but McAfee was showing connected to Internet and I was able to update database but was unable to scan ma computer. I had to reinstall system in the end. we'll I'm still using it but do not recommend. Much better off with free Avast or AVG, best so far Kaspersky, might gonna have to go back...


I have issues with Qihoo 360 a few years back. My wifes PC* was infested with spyware, and Qihoo was STOPPING me from deleting it; nor could I disable or delete Qihoo itself. In the end I had to format the HDD and start from scratch. AFAIK Qihoo is Chinese government sponsored spyware. * Running the Chinese version of Qihoo360 with the PC running the Chinese localised version of Windows - I forget if it was XP or 7.


Many thanx for info (_;)


Cold from me sorry I wouldn't bother with mcafee even if you were paid to install it. reason it's cold: One of my friends had this and if screwed up his pc and he lost all his backups he had a nightmare with it.

McAfee and an Intel n3710 should make this somewhat sluggish I suspect.


Had it been a Skylake or Kaby Lake pentium that's almost as fast as an i3 6100U/7100U then it would have been a great deal, for this sort of apollo lake Pentium it's fairly average and has been this price for at least six months.
