For Sale – Cheap HP Pavilion 12″ laptop – £75

Hi

Continuing my clear out of old IT bits… I have an old HP Pavilion dv2 laptop, model 1125ea. This was at the time a ‘thin and light’ laptop – as such it doesn’t have DVD drive.

HP Pavilion DV2-1125ea

  • AMD Athlon X2 Neo Processor (L335, dual core 1.6GHz, 512KB L2 Cache)
  • 12.1” Screen 1280×800
  • Windows 10 Home (originally came with Windows Vista Home Premium Edition)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 320GB HDD
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410 graphics (shared memory)
  • Ethernet, HDMI, VGA, 3x USB, Full size SD card reader, headphone & mic connections
  • Wifi and bluetooth (wifi tested working with my home network)

Comes with laptop and original charger only. I don’t think I have the original box.

Various high resolution images: http://bit.ly/2rkzHXb

Note that the laptop is ‘used’ – please see photos for details of the various marks and scratches. In particular, there is a large scratch (which is ‘deep’) on the top of the laptop, near the hinge. The battery holds a charge – I haven’t done any recent testing of it, but happy to take a look.

I haven’t used it properly for a while but it appears to be functioning fine. These AMD processors always ran fairly hot, which you can feel/notice when laptop is in use, and the fan does spin up (never bothered me, but, your mileage may vary!).

The original HP Windows Vista recovery partition is still on the laptop and functional. The laptop has been wiped, HP recovery used, and then upgraded to Windows 7 and then Windows 10. The laptop has a digital Windows 10 entitlement. All of the drivers seem to be correct and present, but the extra software ‘bloatware’ HP loaded it with originally was mainly not compatible with Windows 7/10 and thus has been removed.

Prefer collection from South London or near Euston (where I work). Alternatively, will post cheapest, slowest, insured service (unless you want to pay extra). Not sure what this is worth, so let’s say £75.

Price and currency: £75
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: Bank transfer
Location: London / Devon
Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

For Sale – Quad Core 3.6Ghz / AMD HD6670 / 4GB RAM / 800GB HD / Win 10 (Base Unit Only) REDUCED

Hi there,

If you are absolutely confident that you can package this securely and safely for shipping, then I will take it for the asking price please i.e £120 inc. P&P. If not, or if you’d prefer not to ship having thought about it, then absolutely no worries at all.

I need a cheap little base unit that is reasonably future proof just for web-browsing and the odd bit of I-Player etc. and this would seem to fit the bill and offers a slightly better spec than what I could buy for £120 on Ebay it seems.

Having said that, if it’s going to be any sort of hassle or drama at all to safely ship this, then it’s honestly fine – just let me know and I’ll withdraw if needed.

Cheers,

David.

For Sale – Overclockers.co.uk Nvidia Titan Pascal X, i7 6700K custom built system

I bought this VERY high end gaming PC from Overclockers in the Jan sale, but it still remains at the top end. When built just the PC was £2500!

However, changes to our lives at home mean it’s just not suitable anymore – this needs to be sold (sadly!).

The basic specification is awesome, but look at the picture for the full spec. Please note, this has a two year OCUK warranty.
Processor: Core i7 6700K
Graphics card: Nvidia Titan Pascal 12GB
16gb Memory
512gb NVMe SSD & 2tb 7200 hard drive.
Nice motherboard.
Cool metal full tower case
Mad green lighting :)

Also included are other cool bits;
high end Logitech MX Master wireless mouse,
two Xbox one controllers (and recharge station)
Back-lit Ducky Shine mechanical keyboard.

I have the original box for the PC case itself, including the box for the Nvidia Titan, motherboard, keyboard etc (OCUK provide all this).

The price for all this? £1200 collected for everything. I’ll only sell some of the peripherals separately if someone just wants to take the tower. In which case £1100 for the ‘tower’ collected.

Visio Online and Visio’s new cloud innovations help you unlock creativity

This year at the Microsoft Ignite conference in Orlando, Microsoft presented several new product capabilities that extend the Microsoft 365 solution set—including a greater emphasis on cloud-first technologies. Visio Online is one of Microsoft’s newest solutions that further unlocks employee creativity in the modern workplace. Visio Online is available today to commercial customers for $5 per user per month with an annual commitment.

Extending Visio to new audiences

Information workers today want a simple yet powerful way to work visually. As a web-based, lightweight diagramming tool, Visio Online is the perfect solution: with it you can create, edit, and share diagrams online, helping you visualize information in new ways from anywhere. Plus, diagrams are available for anyone in your organization to view—even those without a Visio Online license—so you can get feedback on critical diagrams from all important stakeholders.

Visio Online comes with a host of templates for a variety of audiences, including starter diagrams for basic flowcharts, process diagrams, timelines, business matrixes, SDL diagrams, and many more. Visualizing information is easy—just drag and drop shapes onto the canvas, change a shape’s color or the overall diagram theme, and quickly link one shape to another with connectors. Plus, you can securely share web-based diagrams through OneDrive for Business. (Visio Online Plan 1 and Plan 2 include 2 GB of OneDrive storage. See below for more details about these plans.)

Visio Online comes with diagramming templates to help you get started fast.

“All in all, Visio Online is fantastic, especially for me. Normally, I just make quick drawings to use in documentation, etc., and I think that will be a lot easier with this product.” —Graves Kilsgaard, systems developer at KMC Foods

Cloud-first innovations

Since the beginning of last year, Visio has been committed to releasing innovative, cloud-first capabilities that unlock creativity for professional diagram creators. This continuous, accelerated innovation has resulted in a host of major releases that, in addition to Visio Online, extend Visio’s diagramming tool set.

Here’s a look at each of the capabilities that are only available in the cloud:

  • Power BI is Microsoft’s cloud-based data visualization tool that helps companies gain actionable insights from complex datasets. Today, Power BI includes a new visual—Visio diagrams—which can be linked to live data and embedded within a Power BI dashboard. The Visio and Power BI integration is currently in public preview and planned for release next year. Learn more about this new Power BI feature.
  • Data Visualizer converts process map data in Excel into data-driven diagrams in Visio. Using highly visual diagrams instead of table-based numbers, you can surface new process insights that lead to creative solutions for complex problems.
  • Visio Viewer for iOS allows you to view and interact with Visio diagrams on both iPad and iPhone. You can easily share diagrams through OneDrive or SharePoint and then access them on your favorite iOS device.
  • PowerPoint Slide Snippets enables you select specific diagram parts, give them a title, and export them as slides in PowerPoint. In this way you can create an entire PowerPoint presentation to break down complex diagrams into individual pieces for easier comprehension.

New innovations, new subscription models

Visio Online is available in Visio Online Plan 1. It is also included in our most comprehensive Visio cloud offering, Visio Online Plan 2 (previously Visio Pro for Office 365). Viewing diagrams is free for most Office 365 customers. The innovations described above are only available in Visio Online Plan 2. You can compare Visio versions to learn more about each Visio offer.

Please visit the Visio website for more details on each plan, as well as options for trying the Visio Online experience and our cloud-first innovations for free. We also invite you to submit ideas for more cloud innovations on our UserVoice site. For questions about our latest releases, please email us at tellvisio@microsoft.com. To stay informed of the latest Visio releases, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, as well as check in with the latest Visio news.

Hi all

I have one of these brand new, long story short this was a gift from my brother who works abroad, he actually got me two one for the missus and one for myself (i5 version). I kept mine but the missus wants a mac pro instead :/

I dont have the receipt, however the warranty is valid, according to the HP website its says end date for warranty is July 26th 2018. The serial number is clean and I have done a checkMEND just to be on the safe side, and its clear. Piece of advice though I purchased a warranty extension for my one for an extra 2 years for £70 which I would recommend doing, I also talked to HP and they said you dont need a receipt when I told them it was a gift.

My brother bought it for £800, so I think thats a fair price to start with. Its £1100 in store!
I have fallen in love with the i5 version I have now, they are really beautiful laptops and the build quality is really good. I’m happy to do cash on collection, or I can post via insured courier/special delivery.

Intel i7-7500 CPU
8GB DDR3 Ram
Nvidia Geforce MX150 2GB GDDR5
