It’s the year-end holiday seasons, with Christmas and New Year 2014 just around the corner. If you’re excited about the start of a fresh new beginning like me, you’re probably thinking about a refresh of your life and gadgets.

If your laptop is giving you grief more than being a productivity tool, perhaps you should take advantage of a new trade-in program by Intel. To sweeten the deal, Intel is organizing the best trade-in cashback offer I know of right now!!!


Up to RM 650 in cash back when you these HP Pavilion laptops

From 5 Dec 2013 to 31 Jan 2014, trade-in your laptop and get up to RM 650 cashback.

I’m not kidding and it’s not a typo! Yes – Intel is offering you cash of up to RM 650 back if you purchase any of the selected HP Pavilion laptop. Not a couple of hundred, not discount / rebate vouchers, not free gifts / bundles… but COLD HARD CASH BACK!!!

Intel Trade-in - How To

Here’s what you need to do:-

  1. Purchase any of the following 3 HP models from the participating resellers
    • HP Pavilion 14-n060TX – Intel Core i5-4200U, Windows 8, 4GB RAM, 750GB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M (RM 1,349 after cashback)

  3. You’ll be notified if your claim is approved within 3 days. Then, follow the instructions to send them your old laptop to the designated recycling centre
  4. Once the technician checks the old laptop and approve of the trade-in value, they will pay you up to RM 650 directly into your bank account

Note :

  • This program is managed by OPIA Ltd, supported by Intel
  • Terms and Conditions apply
  • Subject to the condition of your old laptop


All 3 HP Pavilion 14” models run on the latest 4th Generation Intel “Haswell” Core i5 processor, that boasts amazing performance, stunning visuals and built-in security for deeper protection. Read more about the technical specs and performance benchmarks on the latest Intel processor here.

I’ve had a notebook that ran on the previous 3rd Gen Intel Core i5 processor before and it was powerful enough for my work, personal and blogging (including picture and video editing) needs.  So, these HP Pavilion notebooks will certainly be powerful enough for students and business professionals alike.

A worthy “New Year Upgrade” indeed.
