    I got a new HP laptop today and first its meant to 256gb but on the storage on windows it says 30gb used out of 224gb, should it not be 256gb? and the recovery disc is almost full 12 gb used out of 14 and when i clicked on it it says this contains all the files used for push button reset, so was my laptop used then returned to the shop who rest everything and gave it to me?

    And also we asked them to set up the laptop for me

    No, because windows and the preinstalled apps take up space lol.
    Just backup your most important stuff or use an external drive for a more complete backup.

    If they set laptop up for you in November you can ignore that. Squeaky hinge could mean that it’s used, but a better check would be to see if you can see any damage. Scratches, nicks, wear and tear etc.

    If you’re not happy with it return it and get one elsewhere I guess xd

    The OS uses some of the storage also some companies like DELL include some software (basically bloatware).

    As above, the OS will use some of that disk space, so you won't get the full amount of disk space.

    The squeaky hinge could mean that it was used, possibly?

    With the stuff you've told is so far, it's quite hard to judge.

    The squeaky hinge either means it is used - or that it is just like that.

    The manufacturer may have updated it in November 2017 before selling it to you.
