There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Product details

Perfect for both work and play, the HP Pavilion 15-n278sa 15.6” Laptop offers great-value home computing for any user.

Windows 8


The Pavilion 15 comes pre-installed with the expressive Windows 8 operating system. Packed full of intuitive apps, it gives you the information that's important to you as soon as you need it.

The Start screen is based around Live Tiles. These program icons display real time information from all your favourite apps including social networking, emails, news and sports directly on the home screen. You don't even have to open the program to receive important info and notifications.

There are additional features too with the pre-installed Windows 8.1 update. These include the reintroduction of the Start button, new Live Tile sizes and adjustable four-way multi-tasking windows along with developments to the lock screen, search and more.

Excellent everyday performance


The Pavilion 15 is powered by an AMD A8-4555M APU. An APU features both a processor and graphics card in one compact unit and delivers fast, everyday computing with excellent graphics.

The A8-4555M features quad-core processing which, when combined with 8 GB of RAM, delivers effortless multitasking. So whether you're working on multiple spreadsheets and documents or simply want to stream music while you browse, you can rely on the Pavilion 15.

Large capacity storage


File storage is provided by an impressive 1 TB hard drive that's capable of storing a whole family's worth of documents, music and software.

Backing up your data is fast and easy thanks to three USB ports, three of which are USB 3.0. With far faster transfer speeds than previous generations, USB 3.0 makes light work of copying even the biggest files to external disc and flash drives.

Unlike many new laptops, there's also built-in DVD drive for backing up, easily installing software or watching movies on the move.

Get connected


Accessing your internet is simple with built-in WiFi connectivity, you can also watch, play or work on a bigger screen in Full HD thanks to the HDMI port – perfect for watching films or playing games with friends.

Fantastic features


The Pavilion 15 features plenty of handy features to make your life that little bit easier, including a HP TrueVision webcam for staying in-touch love ones, a full-sized island-style keyboard for comfortable typing and high quality DTS sound.

Exclusive to HP is Connected Music, an embedded music service that provides a year's free access to the entire Universal Music catalogue, along with chances to win live music prizes and meet and greet events.
