HP Pro X2 612 G2-Intel Core M/4GB RAM/128GB SSD/Windows 10 Inc Keyboard and Pen - $399 Delivered @ Renewd

431
HP200

I bought one of these on the recent deal for $374 at https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/503280 which didn't appear to get much attention, so thought I'd put it up again with the new coupon code at $399 (not as good as the previous special, but still a pretty decent price).

Given the string of well received Surface Go deals over Black Friday at a similar price this one beats it in pretty much every way. Larger screen, faster processor, more storage and keyboard and pen included. Only quibble I'd have with the listing is it appears to have shipped with Win 10 Home rather than Pro.

    Newbie to this, is the ram upgradable in any way?

    • +1 vote

      Unfortunately not for this one, the RAM is soldered to the board. Surprisingly though the SSD is upgradeable, so at least storage can be increased if needed.

    4gb ram on win10 OS is not enough

    •  

      I’m not going to get into how memory management works on Windows 10, short answer: YES it is.

      • +6 votes

        Yeah, it's enough for Windows 10…. but just not enough to actually do anything worthwhile after Windows 10 has loaded up.

        Not sure why BongoOB is getting downvoted.

        I don't see any sense in buying a laptop with 4gb and no means of upgrading heading into 2020.

        Microsoft Windows 10 system requirements.
        RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit

        It's a fit for purpose type of assessment as to whether RAM will be sufficient.

        •  

          Yeah, you're just confirming what I've wrote?
          4GB is sufficient for Windows 10, but leaves very little for anything you want to do beyond just booting into Windows.

    How would this go for simple note taking (OneNote), watching Netflix and web browsing?

    •  

      Looking at these specs, you should be fine. But at that price it maybe better for a device that's a tablet only.

        undecided. if it had 8GB RAM it would be a sure thing

        • +2 votes

          If it had 8gb it would have sold out in seconds, rather than minutes.

          Look at the price! Some people are hard to please.

    Thanks, OP for posting this deal.
    We will ship a free 13.3" Targus Contego 4 bag with any Brand New HP range (order must be over $349 after discount)

    P.S: All existing orders will also get a free bag

    •  

      Hi op
      Will you be getting any more units?

      •  

        Sorry, we are sold out of this model and won't be getting anymore anytime soon.
        We do have other Brand new HP models in stock though.

  •  

    Is it possible to test the device anywhere in person?

  •  

    Having to only know about Lenovo laptops, and know absolutely nothing about core-m cpus, are these good price for it?

  •  

    It says sold out.

    Just a word of warning. These are very slow and touch screen can be very annoying.

    We had 4 of these at work and everyone was annoyed with them.

    Negging to warn you guys, just in case you decide for a refund before it ships

      I am buying this for my Year 7 daughter. How do you think it would fare in school usage?

      • +1 vote

        It will struggle with multi tasking as it is a core M3 with only 4gb of ram.

        The touch screen can get very unresponsive or lag too, so if its for multi touch applications, I would not recommend it.

        •  

          I think I will take my chances. The price is too good to pass. I bought a Lenovo Miix 700 with Core M3 6Y30 and 4GB RAM for my son 3 years ago. I asked him recently whether it's too slow and he said it's still okay.

        You see he said adult at his office was annoyed.

        So, an annoyed year 7 daughter is a nightmare….

    •  

      Thanks for feedback. I was starting to get some buyers remorse getting an Envy x360 for a bit over $600 (refurbished, but got new).

    argh I missed it.

  •  

    Seems to be in stock now with code working still for $399. Did a dummy purchase up to payment and all good.

    Would not mind one of these and tempting with a 12" FHD screen and usb C pd charging, hmmm, need it to be bit cheaper before I pull the trigger.

    We've rolled out around 100 in my previous workplace, constant issues with touch screen, freezing, charging etc and it was only within 4 months of roll out we saw these problems occur..

    I'd stay away from the HP Pro x2 612..

  •  

    That might explain why they are so cheap now lol.

    These are pure garbage. Can't believe people like EC getting negged for speaking the truth. You'd be better off getting a Chromebook if this is your budget, because there is no way you're using this piece of garbage to do something that requires a Windows O/S.

      poor man pays twice, just spend a bit more and buy something more than bare minimum specs.

    •  

      It probably depends on your expectation. Ive got a previous gen of one of these "M" core laptop (so even worse than this), and theyre fine for basic stuff like word and web browsing. So basically about all i do for uni and work.

      But beyond that, it does run into issues like throttling because a lot of laptops using this processor are only passively cooled.

      •  

        I've been using mine for a week now for all those basic sorts of tasks as well (using Office, browsing the web, streaming) and it has had no issues at all performance wise. Now just to see if the reliability issues arise in a few months too.

        •  

          Have you checked the warranty status on HP website? Mine says the start date is November 10, 2018 and the end date is January 08,2020. What's going on here?

          •  

            @KRRacing: Thanks for the heads-up on that one. Mine has listed an end date of 20 January 2020. I've submitted a dispute with HP, sending through the Invoice from Renewd - that should sort things out hopefully.
