I was browsing HP's website and I noticed they had a Pavillion 15 with a 6 Core AMD A8, 8GB of RAM, 1TB HDD and a Radeon R7 M260!
For £400!

Is this laptop as good as it looks or is there some catch?

If you look at the specs it gives the model number of the apu (which is the apu I linked to as proof that it is an error) and as I mentioned there are no 6 core apus, let alone 6 core mobile cpus from any company.

I can't say for sure without knowing specs but did I give enough explanation to let you understand which would be better?

As general office work horse it will be fine, will struggle as agaming system.
The only other things that goes against, is all the crap bloatware HP install and battery will probbaly stop charging to 100% after 18 months or so.

Bloatware I can deal with. I have a desktop for gaming, I would only game on it when I'm away.

Would it be better than a lenovo G505s?

It might not be an error.

It does say "new HP AMD six core cpu"

So, if the specs are cirrect , I should go for the HP?
