As it's reconditioned, I would stay clear.

Might be worth looking into the Toshiba Hotdeal of Dell are doing a good sub £400 laptop.

This one seems a better option, take the warranty down to one year and you get £411

Hmmmm.....

On mine it comes down to £411. Just double check you have downgraded your warranty to 1 year collect and return.

Just a biased comment; like any retailer it is good to look around at what is available and if the price suits you then purchase; PCWorld has its critics, and rightly so, but so too does it have many good deals from well respected manufacurers.

whats so bad about the reconditioned laptops from PC World? pls tell me as i too am thinking as buying a reconditioned one from PC World
#11
PC World service is awful, speaking as someone who used to work for Dixons groups (of which PC World are a member) and someone with a great deal of experience in the world of computers I'd say steer well clear particularly of reconditioned stuff, you'll be taking it back before you know it. The ONLY thing I would buy PC wise from PC World is a new laptop, everything else I wouldn't personally touch, there are better and cheaper places to buy.
