I know this is an old thread but I would be wary of buying anything from this company.

I just received an email from them saying they're closing down and have gone into liquidation. Looking online they're insolvent, I guess you can't sell laptops so cheap and sustain a business..

Hopefully no one is waiting on refunds or expecting to claim on any warranty.

I am a bit concerned that I have still not received an order confirmation and they haven't responded to my email.
Ditto. Been getting a deaf ear on the live chat too.

I still have my ole X200 bought from SCC Trade two years ago (it flies with an SSD - I don't demand too much of it, just casual browsing and music listening). Built like the proverbial brick house - I have read many of the 3000rpm threads and would be cautious about them, though!
There used to be some decent bargains at scc trade, now everything there is a complete rip off, battered c grade laptops >£100. Don't know why they started overpricing things so much.
I ordered quite a few laptops from there, but fell out of love when a Grade C, 0GB laptop was completely DOA (bought an SSD in preparation for its arrival, after seeing others comment that 0GB means dead hard drive).

SCC refused to accept a return, so I was stuck with it.

This is a great laptop. Pity it's sold out.
It means 'no touchpad'. There isn't one. There is a little red tracking button for cursor movement.
What does it mean in the description "No Touchpad"? Meaning it dont work or something else i may have missed :|

any one on this thread help me out?

i need another laptop as the kids are now using the one we have for home work so much its crazy.....

No point in just getting a cheap low spec one as if they are using this one then i might be on the spare one encoding a dvd or something

was thinking along the lines of a E6420(about £170) or E6320(£200ish) as they are both running 2nd gen i5's i believe?

Anything else i should be looking at as the refurb world of laptops is mind blowing.............

thanks

think the only difference is the screen size?
I bought 8GB model but received 4GB. Otherwise this looks pristine. Battery life looks good. Asking if they could ship me the missing memory
I think it must've just came loose when it was shipped. Everything seems to be working okay now

Which gen i5 is this?
Hmm..I bought a refurb X201 that turned out to have a recalled battery. When I tried to get the replacement, I was told it had already been claimed!

I bought a refurb Thinkpad with a recalled battery. When I try to claim the replacement battery, I was told it had already been ordered (by a previous owner?)
There's a few decent condition refurb t420s on Amazon through third party sellers for £190. Seems like a better option for not much more.
Could anyone tell me if this would be up to running Dreamweaver and other code related programmes? Obviously when this came out it was a top spec machine but would it be worse than a Chromebook nowadays?

In my experience ,ost of the problems suffered by low end laptops in their first year are down to they poor build quality - breakages often not covered by a warranty involving heavy handed children etc.
Hence these units are ideal for that environment, I find them extremely robust - these lenovo T and X units are standard issue in my workplace - and last very well.  In most cases they just travel between desks and are used for not much more than email.
True, the usual executives that use the Xseries won't be as computer literate than sending emails and reading powerpoints. And when used at work its usually on a docking station with an external keyboard/mouse.

In my experience ,ost of the problems suffered by low end laptops in their first year are down to they poor build quality - breakages often not covered by a warranty involving heavy handed children etc.

Hence these units are ideal for that environment, I find them extremely robust - these lenovo T and X units are standard issue in my workplace - and last very well. In most cases they just travel between desks and are used for not much more than email.
Having used Thinkpad from the 486 CPU running OS/2 or Windows 3.1 to T61 in a corporate environment the range of condition of a laptop after 3 or 4 years is huge, ranging to pristine as it left the factory to battle worn. It all depends on the seller and the grading of what you get and after sales service. I would not say £180 is a good deal relative to a brand new machine, may be £100 to £120. The maths is, you forsake , against a new machine, one year warranty (£20-£50), battery (£20-£50), harddisk (£20-£40 possibly replace with SSD), USB 3 (£10-£15). However the chassis is strong as it is typically metal, so it can withstand knocks, and it may have expresscard port which comes in handy to get USB 3 (£10-£15). SO may be better to buy £200 - £300 brand new or refurb new-ish i3 laptop.

old technology and refurbished product.....meaning the product had been hammered for however old it is.
Any 3rd world country people, never cast a look at the refurbished products.
say no to refurbished electronics. 5 out of 10 times they will be unreliable....
Balderdash.
whorthy?
No, just balderdash.
Well built machines, many of which will have been well kept and little utilised by their business users (often Govt depts) who may have done no more than send emails from them. Upgradeable with additional RAM and better HDs. Bluetooth onboard. Pattern batteries fairly cheap on Ebay should you need one.
Far better than any equivalent priced, bendy plastic junk available from Argos.
Just an opinion, but one from someone who has purchased one of these and also an X201 with similar spec which was just as impressive.
I have/had x61, x200, x201, x220, T410, T420.
I have to disagree with any "all pink" reviews such as yours:
- batteries are expensive and you will usually need one.
- keyboards might be shiny (sign of use)
- mouse pads are the weak spot of the lenovo's, they usually show signs of wear very easily.
It's not "all pink" - it's my experience of owning a couple of refurbished units. No more and no less.
£20 - £30 for a 3rd party battery is not a huge expense.
Shiny keyboard...the world ends.
Not a lover of track pads, but the ones I own work fine.
Love how you conveniently left out any comment about how you conveniently left out the part about the missing charger... :) They are all cheap, battery, charger, memory... :) £20-£30 for a Chinese battery doesn't look cheap to me, and it's more than 20% of the price you paid for the laptop... so quite significant.

Yet you managed to sneak some sarcasm in there... nobody said the world ends...

"conveniently"? Are you a little paranoid? Why would I conveniently miss out any comment on my own convenient omissions?

What detriment to the use of a laptop is a "shiny keyboard"? Really? It's a refurb - it will have obvious signs of use.

When I purchased my X201 from SCC I received a charger with it. However, I wasn't posting SCC as a "Hotdeal" merely an alternative to the OP in response to another post. 2nd hand RAM and charger would bring the price to no more than the OP.

And, no, £20 - £30 for a new battery is not a significant amount, because the one thing that will probably be at the end of it's life with any of these products is the battery. I guess "cheap" is another matter of opinion and/or circumstances.

Another bonus for these units over the less expensive new ones available is that they can actually be repaired fairly easily and parts are readily available.

Maybe the problem is with "all black" opinions like yours.

check out 'Teir1 Online' bought a as new one from there.
Bought the same model last January off these with a 3 month warranty.It lasted exactly 3 months and 1 week then died.To start with the web cam never worked (last year it was advertized with a web cam) and trying to get any after sales service was hopeless.Then it failed to start up full stop.I have taken it to two different repair shops for estimates,1 says £65.00 the other £75.00, apparently it's the motherboard.Price last January looking at my receipt was £204.96 but came with a free 32GB pen drive.Condition of mine was far from great and it is now just gathering dust under the coffee table, dead as a door nail! If any doubter wants to see a scan of my 3000RPM receipt, I will post.
I have never bought a laptop from this company, but I have used them many times over the years, for lots of other things.
I am retired now, but I use to have a small business. I used 3000rpm as a stop gap for some supplies. Very rare I had a problem, but a quick email would sort any issue out.
Buy through their eBay shop if possible. You get a better condition machine as there is come back on their rating if there customers aren't happy.
very bad company they will be send some rubbish and later on they will say the item was state as refurbished

Heat added - I have missed my thinkpad T420 I had through work now that I have returned to university but simply couldn't afford to buy one . I am really tempted to buy this but jut had a question or two I hope one of you guys with a bit of laptop knowledge may be able to answer?

Should I assume that I still need to purchase Microsoft office for this laptop?

With it being a refurb, do you think the battery life is with the battery provided will be poor?

Thanks in advance :)

This should be hotter. £280 for what was essentially Lenovo's top of the line business grade laptop with pretty decent specs is a good price.

The only concern is with the "XGA TFT" -- that's bound to be inaccurate since no one has done actual XGA, 4:3 aspect, displays since 2008 or so. It would've been nice to have the Lenovo machine type/model in the description so we could check the specs for ourselves.

More than likely it's WXGA i.e. 1366x768 though which is sad.

got mines today and its not the T430 model but actually the T430s which is the slimmer model with all the same specification and its in my mind a Grade A machine, i will upload some pics very soon!!

But surely the fact they have some premises is a good thing?!
The address and telephone numbers are on the find us and customer services pages of their site. I've never used them so can't comment but all in all a physical shop and full contact details are a good sign. Plenty of people on ebay selling from their bedrooms with contact names which look like something has been dropped on their keyboards who would offer zero aftersales.

Just to provide a counterpoint to all the negative comments - I ordered the X201 thinking "£130 for an i5 laptop is ridiculously cheap - I can't go wrong". I read all the negativity in here and still wanted to go ahead but decided to chuck on a 6 month warranty for £15. Add postage and that's £150 all-in.

It arrived today and after a number of hours use (posting this comment on it) I can say my first impression has been really good. Everything seems to be in good working order and the machine is in good condition with only minor cosmetic grazes. The only negatives I can think of so far are 1) battery only holds a couple of hours charge which is frankly what I was expecting from a second-hand machine (a new 9-cell high capacity is only £40) and 2) the listing says that it comes with a "genuine power charger" and what I have is clearly an unofficial charger, though does genuine = official? Open to interpretation.

I'm not fussed about the charger really and as far the battery goes, I will reset the battery gauge overnight to see if that improves things and if not I'm happy enough to buy a new battery.

If the thing develops a fault or catches fire or something I'll update this comment but I must say I have no complaints so far and think this is £150 very well spent. Perhaps adding a 6 month warranty encourages them to send you one of the better units, perhaps I got lucky, or perhaps the people sharing their bad experiences in this thread are just a vocal minority. I can only speak for myself in saying - all good so far!

Update on the 2 minor complaints from my above post:

1) I bought a new (unofficial) 9-cell battery from an Amazon vendor for £40. It holds something like 7 hours of charge!
2) Having bought the new battery I found I started to care about the unofficial charger. I emailed 3000RPM to say I was happy with the laptop but wanted the 'genuine' charger as it was described on the product page. I had a reply the next day and a brand new, official Lenovo charger has arrived today, so now I have a brand new genuine charger and a spare unofficial charger!

After just over a week with the laptop, I am really happy with the purchase. A real bargain for quite a powerful and portable machine. The only thing I've found on it that doesn't work is the "ThinkLight" - an LED above the screen that shines on the keyboard apparently! Sounds like a pretty silly feature to me so am happy for that to be the sacrificial fault with the machine!

Sorry to hear others have had bad experiences like the thing turning up with wrong RAM or not turning up at all, but it seems only fair to the retailer to point out that my experience has been really good.
Mine still hasn't arrived. I've had to reverse the charges on my credit card.

Hi Guys ,
I became disabled in 2011 after a spinal op failed to cure my problem , - I'd never had a hobby before and decided that Photography would be the way to go .
Luckily I was given voluntary redundancy , bought myself as good a camera as I could afford , knowing nothing about them - I eventually chose a Nikon D7000 .
Next item on the list was a laptop for Photo Editing .
I was as clueless about laptops as I was about cameras , but I did a little research [ I have done more since !! ] and found a Lenovo T410 8GB , 1TB i5 for sale at 3000rpm .
I saw it was a Dundee company and thought that if things went completely wrong I could actually drive there in 5 hours and confront them face to face .
Laptop arrived within 3 days - would not power up Windows !!
Phoned them up , some guy on the other end said ' Send us a ticket ! ' - and that was all .
I sent them an email , quite an angry email .
I received an email telling me to return it .
Now this is what I find frustrating about 3000rpm , nothing is that straightforward but I managed to figure out their Returns System and phoned them up 3 times , the 3rd time I got through to the work shop and a VERY FRIENDLY HELPFUL GUY talked to me .
Now I was reassured . I'm a simple man , I'm happy when I'm reassured .
I sent it back and within 3 days it was returned to me fully working .
That was February 2014 - it's now 6/1/2015 and it's still going strong - I love it .
That was MY experience of 3000rpm , - would I deal with them again ? - Certainly !!
Everyone has off days , people are busy , people are answering phones and emails .
What I would do if I ran 3000rpm is have someone friendly and helpful on the other end of the phone , maybe two or three people , a dedicated person who will reassure the customer that his / her problem will be dealt with within 5 days .

I am now looking to upgrade my laptop later on this year - I would prefer it if it was a Lenovo Thinkpad , it would probably have to be customised - I've seen 1 or 2 to my liking but still can not decide for sure as I keep changing my mind .
Something with 12-16gb ram , 1.5 - 2tb or maybe 512gb ssd . 15.6" screen or bigger .
Any suggestions most welcome !!
A bit late what? As it happens i had a great experience, but your mileage may vary....
Please for your own sanity avoid these people! I had a dreadful experience with them.
We ordered from Scan after reading this thread! Next day delivery, some scratches to the lid and the pointer looks a bit grubby, but seems pretty sound. Battery has 102 cycles. No sign of any drop damage or anything like some of the posts above.

Wanted a laptop for Uni that didn't break my rather small student bank! But was also quite powerful. Picked up the T420 from 3000rpm (with a 128gb SSD). Extremely impressed, it is everything I needed and the price was extremely reasonable. It's robust and even came with the higher resolution display. Upgraded to 8gb of RAM too just for good measure. It is really quite snappy for a Core i5. I also wanted one with a battery that can last me all day while in lectures and IT sessions (I am studying software engineering) and it does that too which is good, especially with the 9-cell battery which will last all day and then some!

A lot complain about the design of these laptops but I think they look fantastic (Maybe I am a bit old school, always wanted one of the older Thinkpad's from a few years back)

I cannot complain with the service at all from 3000rpm, the actual condition is in good condition, few marks here and there but that's nitpicking. Would highly recommend them and will certainly be buying from them again.

Where did you get your 9 cell battery from out of curiosity? I want one for my x220.

I bought it off eBay brand new, It's a "55++". Unsure it would work with your x220, you would have to check, here's the link anyway. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Lenovo-9-cell-Battery-for-ThinkPad-L410-T410-T510-T520i-42T4801-57Y4186-/400687173689?pt=UK_Computing_LaptopsAccessories_LaptopBatteries&hash=item5d4ad11039

Bought one of these a week ago. ETA yesterday, hadn't received a dispatch confirmation so called them up. Apparently they are dealing with a battery recall from Lenovo, so couldn't give me a delivery date, (I asked days, weeks, months? He said days, but wasn't too convincing) Hopefully the up side to the delay is that it will come with a new battery?

Arrived yesterday, 4 days after estimate, 10 days after purchase, not impressed with communication. If i hadn't phoned I'd have been left guessing what was happening, there was no email or ebay communication. Very pleased with laptop, 2 small scratches on the lid(not painted) otherwise could be new. Even given the poor communication I'd buy again. Now where can i get a cheap docking station to get a decent display attached when I'm at my desk? P.S. battery says it's been through 68 cycles, too few for the age of the laptop, too many for a new one, maybe the original owner did the exchange with lenovo, will investigate.

These are really good laptops - though the displays are one of the worst TN screens known to man + aggressive anti-glare - though corresponding Dell Latitude and later T420/430 weren't much better (see reviews). Some people ripped the layer out or changed panel.

CPU is also old Arrandale with separate GPU/memory controller and not a match for Sandy Bridge of later T420+ - which also gets SATA600 useful for SSD and DDR 1600 memory support.

These are really good laptops except the screen is really poor and the CPU is a bit old?

Ha - I see what you mean - well, the rest is good. There are laptops where everything is bad ;)
It it too old to be Windows 8 compatible?

How much is this? I can't see the price.
well, if it is running at 5ghz and doesnt break down within a year it's a decent deal. but i very much doubt it.
my guess is that they meant 4.5ghz.

I think its a bit overpriced i don't know the exact price of the components but roughly it seems about 200£?

It's gone cold because
a. you can't buy a set at the price stated in your deal - you have to buy 5
b. you didn't include postage.
c. you can probably get them cheaper on Ebay

I am pretty confused why this goes so much cold ?

I think also i need to learn how hot uk deal system actually work.

Feeling really stupid...!!!
What's this about reset chips etc? I put some 3rd party cartridges in my Epson BX935FWD, worked out about £1 each if I got 4 of each colour at the time. They work, printer doesn't say they're non genuine, but don't seem to last that long (but I've not got a point of reference)

Have I missed something? :|
I'd recommend weighing compatible carts as some suppliers under fill them, which can cause blockages when they run dry. I switched to using refillables with my epson after a set of jettec compatible ran out of ink before showing empty and I ended up wasting an entire new set trying to clear the airlocks.

If I was buying a new set of refillables, I'd favour ones with reset buttons on them so I didn't have to wait for the auto reset chip to reset before refilling, such as these - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NON-OEM-Set-refillable-cartridge-for-epson-SX235W-SX420W-SX425W-SX435W-SX445W-/251137486125?pt=UK_CamerasPhoto_Printing_PrinterInkCatridges_JN&hash=item3a78f5ed2d

That's the reason I buy Epson printers, there's no need to get ripped off for ink.
What annoys me is how manufacturers are allowed to use chips to prevent non genuine cartridges being used, surely this goes against competition laws. If they say it's to stop warranty claims on printers where non genuine ink is at fault then use chips to log the ink used and bring up a warning about invalidating warranty. I'm sure they can detect the type of ink used by checking reidues anyway.

It's never really been about warranty issues - the printer is often sold at little more than the price of a set of inks, so we can see exactly where they plan to make their profit. A full set of Canon ink for my Canon MG6150 is around £100 - what a joke!
I bought a chip resetter and refilled original carts. Now the compatibles have caught up with the model, I can use those.

As you say, it's pot luck what you get. There was another thread that was deleted and the majority seemed to have laptops with significant wear to keyboard ,touchpad and damaged bezels. The one I returned was well worn, and casing was scratched. All this and the wrong spec! Only a few seemed happy with what they got.. Risk it if you want :)

Ah, ok. That sounds worse than I realised. Don't think I'll bother.

I had a bad experience with 3000RPM so I wouldn't trade with them via Ebay or there own website ever again. They have to be one of the worst companies that I have dealt with when purchasing items via the internet. I can't believe they advertised the wrong specification laptop on here but still sent the wrong one to me and other HUKD members who wrote about this issue. In my own experience they used various excuses when replying back to me, I've had false promises that unfortunately have never materialised. The old thread that was recently deleted on here was full of negative comments about 3000RPM from other HUKD members purchasing this same laptop which wasn't the correct spec, for a professional business this is not a good trading practice and can only reflect by customers not using or recommending there services. If I had purchased from them by using Ebay I'm afraid I would have left a negative.

Can anyone clarify whether buying from 3000rpm via Ebay is any better than buying directly through their website?

It seems to me that Ebay would be a safer method in terms of customer service and obtaining a refund, if necessary. You have Ebay and Paypal available to arbitrate in any disputes and I expect that 3000rpm would be more inclined to provide a better service to avoid receiving bad feedback. This is backed up by the fact that (at the time of writing) they have 99.6% feedback on Ebay. However there is quite a bit of negative feedback in there too, even over the past month.

So has anyone purchased one of these laptops through 3000rpm* on Ebay? If so what was your experience of them like? Of the people who have complained about 3000rpm on this thread, did any of you purchase via Ebay and if so did you find it easier to return the item?

Whilst I agree that the poor customer service and (what seems like) false advertising is unacceptable, personally I would not be too bothered if they sent me a 2.4Ghz CPU instead of a 2.6Ghz. Especially when the laptop is so cheap in the first place. So with this in mind the question is 'is this laptop worth the gamble?'. How different was the spec of the laptop from what was advertised?

Apart from the spec being wrong what is the overall condition of the laptop like? I read somewhere that the condition varies a lot and it's pot luck what you get.

Has anyone who had problems with this deal taken it further? - bad reviews/complaints to fair trading etc.

Somebody needs too inform Trading Standards, I never received my replacement hard drive upgrade because of them sending me the wrong specification laptop as advertised, despite loads of email promises from 3000RPM, they just get fobbing me off with excuse after excuse. What a bunch of pirates these guys are! Buyers Beware!

There's a brand new Dell Vostro 260 for £185 at the moment, so that leaves plenty for a cheap monitor and the spend will be much the same as this deal (or less) so you'd be a loony to buy this deal.

Sorry OP it's COLD

If you're after a cheap desktop op then I recommend you look at this. Granted no monitor or OS but it's under £150, and you could easily find a monitor for £50 and then you have £50 to play with to get an OS

And you currently save £0.04, result.

Great company, they sell inks for about £1 each also
I use this company all the time but through Ebay. These are £8.98 with free delivery and work out cheaper going through Ebay than their website itself:

just to verify the quality of this drive, i bought this exact pen drive about 2 months ago for £17 and it's just been through the washing machine and tumble dryer and still has all the info i stored on it.

excellent value IMO
Isn't it a bit of a false economy buying USB2 memory sticks when USB3 ones are 10x faster and there's hardly any difference in the price?

Even if you don't have a USB3 port now, your next computer definitely will and 32GB will probably still be useful for the next couple of years.
The most reliable USB pen drives I have ever owned, much better than Kingston, busbi, transcend and a few others. Also the read/write speeds on these verbatims are usually faster than advertised.
Doesn't seem to be very well made and as the previous poster has said £12.99 delivered on Amazon !
