HP Sells Cheapest Windows 8 Laptop for £245.52

HP is selling the Pavilion DM1-4341sa laptop for £279, but you can get a 12 per cent discount using the code 12OFFAFF to bring the price down to £245.52. This makes it the cheapest Windows 8 laptop we've seen.

What's more, you can get a printer, the Deskjet 3000, for an additional £8.80 (including the discount).

The laptop comes with a dual-core AMD E2-1800 processor clocked at 1.7GHz with 1MB L2 cache, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard disk drive, a 11.6in BrightView LED-backlit display with a 1,366 x 768 display, an AMD Radeon HD 7340 GPU, Wi-Fi, a HD webcam, an Ethernet port and a card reader.

In addition, it packs Beats Audio technology, an island-style keyboard, a 6-cell battery, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, VGA, HDMI connectors, Bluetooth, plus HP’s Soft-touch Imprint technology that offers a “superfine, smooth finish” in ash black with a pinwheel pattern.

The laptop weighs a mere 1.6kg and is 32mm thick, which is odd given that it has a small display and doesn’t come with an optical drive.

HP has also included a Universal Music Package that allows customers to win “Money can’t buy” experiences and VIP concert tickets, as well as free unlimited streaming of the Universal Music Catalogue.
