[Refurb] HP ENVY X360 R5-2500U, 8GB DDR4, 256GB NVMe, 13.3" FHD Convertible $799 ($719 with coupon) @HP Online Store


Like many here, I've been kicking myself for missing out on the Thinkpad E495 for under $700 earlier this year, but this looks like a similar deal, albeit refurbished. Yes I bought one.

Thanks for TA/CR for the 14% cashback, which should bring this down to $687. Expired

Overall, a 1.2kg convertible ultrabook with a well-balanced spec for a nice price.

Updated 15/5 to include NATION10% coupon at $719

  • Is there an extra slot to upgrade the memory?

    • apparently you can, dual slots however the thing runs at very low speeds, 1866…

      this is allegedly not a good unit… only up to 5hrs which is about right for 2000 series… since we're about to go to 4000 and even 5000 relatively soon this is probably not a smart buy

  • what's warranty like for something like this?

    • it says 12 month - there's a sticker logo on the image .

    • You can also get carepacks for this, i got mine on my Ryzen 3 envy x360 refurb - HP 3 year 3 day Onsite Notebook Service for $250aud inc direct frtom HP (part number UN013E)

  • does it come with pen?

    • Wondering the same.

    • I called them and it does not. An extra $99 to $150 if you get it through HP

    • Have received my order from the earlier sale and it COMES with a PEN. I thought I would have to buy one but there it was. Amazing value for $667 with pen. The notebook looks brand new, no marks or any obvious signs of wear. Got it for high school teen and they love it.

      Will see how battery holds up but seems to be very good despite reviews.

  • With CR, this is a great buy! Would have bought one to replace my XPS if I didn't recently buy a battery. Build quality is in Aluminium I hear, as opposed to ABS in the Lenovo.

    @yoshipau Might work for your Missus

    • Are you talking about XPS or Lenovo? The Lenovo equivalent to the XPS and X360 is the Yoga C930 and is the best built laptop I've used. All metal body without any sort of flex anywhere including zero flex on keyboard and screen.

      • My XPS has keyboard, screen and battery problems so I was looking for a workhorse without a big price tag. The E495/595 suited that purpose. The Yoga is great but in this economic climate I'd use the price difference on other needs.

        This HP isn't as good as the Yoga or the XPS but it has a premium build for the price ($690.) Most laptops in $600+ or even $1,000+ at HN, JB, TGG, Officeworks aren't that competitive spec wise and are plastic construction. Plus if you pair it with HP's premium warranty you're almost set.

    • Still not Apple levels of Aluminium body, it's defo not a T series Lenovo, either :)

      • I don't need to use Mojave OS for work and there is no denying the beauty of Apple products. That said, you're getting similar specs (though older technology) at 30% of the Apple retail.

    • Agree about CR. I would not have bought it without the 14% cashback.

  • WTF They are adding 1 cent for delivery! op CHANGE THE TITLE! Ok hissy fit over now….

  • If you're gonna get refurbished, check out Dell. I bought a better specs one 4-5 years ago for $700. Plus it's Dell. I've never hated anything more than I hated HP 🙄

      You obviously haven't used Dell Inspiron then :)

      • I had a dell inspiron that was good except losing screws all the time. I had another dell many years ago and it would burn your legs and the screen kept dying from new.

      • You obviously haven’t used HP then :)

        • Lol, yes I think all low end consumer stuff will have a higher annoyance factor and there is a bit of luck of the draw. I've had an LG g4 for years and its been one of the best phones ever owned yet when I bought it the boot loop issue was surfacing on some units and everyone started complaining and screaming NEVER BUY THIS PHONE. I have seen people say the lenovo E's are terrible, mine have been great. Dell, I've had 2 good, 2 bad. MSI - I've had 7 and they were surprisingly good for some thing so crazily cheap. My LG G7 has had mixed reviews - love mine. My Nokia 7 had good reviews, was built okay but so many apps would not run on it. The reviews on this HP, people seem to love them or hate them. I have plenty of spare screws if they drop out. Unless you go real high end and pay the premium, I think most will be okay and some will be an issue. That's life.

      I hear you. HP has no idea how to make a good laptop.

      anyway consumer grade hardware is a throwaway garbage, whatever the brand, but literally at the next job interview I am asking what kind of laptop I am getting. if it's another ProBook no thank you

      ugly, creaking, horrible keyboard and lame battery life


  • Already out of stock. Missed out unfortunately.

  • I ordered these before and then they came back to me a week later saying they have no stock but they can substitute a lower spec model for the same price.

    I ordered 3 and they weren't supposed to have a pen included, the first one had no pen and the other 2 did.

    Doesn't exactly sound like HP runs a tight ship.

  • I got one, I think the last unit. Shall see how it compares to my E495 and my E595. My wife wants the pen for drawing. Should be a step up from what she is using from OZB deal 8 years ago https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/65022 It still runs surprisingly well with max ram, win10 and SSD. The cost of ownership on that has been around $7 a month not including the SSD upgrade.

  • What's HP refurbished gear like? Ordered a 2019 Spectre x360 for the missus for what seems like a great price. 512gb 16gb i7 8565 for $1450ish.

  • Back in stock again, cashback back to normal though.

  • Out of stock again. I would say they show stock when they come in ex-lease. So dribs and drabs.

  • So I've received mine. As expected, looks like a brand new product with no marks, fingerprints or dust. The packaging was a bit makeshift though - just bubble wrapped and shoved in a box. Also came with a stylus and battery, which was unexpected but a nice touch. Definitely worth the money, given the specs and portability.

  • Mine just arrived. The case is MINT, I wonder if they replace them when refurb? Mine came with a pen and a power supply. The packaging was as mentioned above, aftermarket looking but totally fine.

    • Mine has been throwing errors that "HP Pen Control is not compatible with this device" on startup. The pen itself worked fine, as did both buttons. So I just uninstalled HP Pen Control and all is fine. Does yours do the same?

  • Use code NATION10% for 10% off. Can some one report the change please, I have already made 1 report on this listing when it came back into stock so now I cannot make another report. Brings price down to $719 before possible cash cashbacks which may be voided by code use. Code is better anyway.

  • In case anyone wants to know , my order from the earlier sale came WITH a PEN.
