The HP 655 laptop is currently on sale at SaveonLaptops for £300 but you get £100 cashback direct from HP until the end of October 2013 bringing its effective purchase price to £200. You also get a free copy of BullGuard Internet security with a 12-month subscription plus the option to upgrade your warranty to three years for £50.
The only corner cut in this HP 655 is its processor, a paltry AMD E2-1800M, a dual-core model clocked at 1.7GHz with 1MB cache), one which targets the low end of the market and is a rival to the Intel Atom range. Whether it will be powerful enough for everyone' usage is highly improbable.
The rest of the feature list looks more promising and includes Windows 8 Pro (worth around £100 on its own), a 15.6in display with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard disk drive, a DVD writer, Wi-Fi, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a webcam, three USB ports, VGA/HDMI, a six hour battery life and a classic business-focused chassis design.
