If the storage medium of this HP portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteBook 840 G1 (£784.00) (SSD and cheaper).

The more recent Bios update and the latest drivers from HP plus the latest drivers from Intel for Bluetooth and Wifi. Then disable power management on the Bluetooth and Wifi will make Windows 8.1 run
