For those of you that don't like the idea of refurbs, the new one is £649 with the same 1yr warranty but you do get an extra 2Gb of ram and 250Gb hdd space;
http://www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/acer-aspire-5742-black-laptop-08702354-pdt.html

This is probably the closest 'NEW' laptop in terms of performance and price.

However, this refurbished one has the same 1yr warranty as the new one, is £20 cheaper, has a faster processor and a VGA port! which may be important to some people.
The new one has an i5-450M, this one has a i5-460M which is rated higher than even the i5-580M

For those who need bluetooth support, you can pick up a USB adapter from both poundland or poundworld.

sorry but the new version is an absolute no brainer over this making this one stone cold
probably both have vga and its just listed wrong

edit: new version gone but still too much for a basic refurb

It's not the same. If you read the actually posting, this one has a noticeably faster processor and I checked several online specs, all of which do not list a vga port for the 'new' slower one!

Where have you seen a cheaper refurb with the same spec and 1 yr warranty?
I checked this against both Dell's refurbs store and Argos's ebay store and nothing they had came close to this at £375 final price.

The new one your refering to has a slower processor, is £20 more than this and has the same warranty!

The new one of this is £649.

Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Totally agree, this should have been made hot ages ago.
Probably my own fault for comparing it to the 450M model whereas the 'NEW' version of this is listed at £649.99 albeit with 2Gb more Ram and 250Gb extra HDD.


Been looking at all the laptop deals posted on here for several weeks and none offer the same value for money as this one.

Anyone else had bad experiences with refurbs from DSG?
I bought 3 over a period of 6 months a few years ago and they all went back. One was DOA, the other had the wrong spec (single core and not dual) and the third had a ridiculously noisy fan.
At least they collect them from you and don’t charge so I wasn’t out of pocket. Put me off buying again although they must have at least one good one! oO
