This is NOT a "refurb" it is plain and simply USED.
They don't even claim it to be Refurbished!

What do you expect from... Macwarehouse -> owned by Equanet -> owned by DSGi Business -> Owned by DSGi (PCWorld, Currys, Dixons etc....)

£140 actually.

Original Sales Date 15/01/2010


So it's only 1 month old; don't need to worry about the battery being worn. Given the time-scale, it's likely the customer returned it within 7 days of purchase, so wear & tear will be minimal too.

Lol at all those being sniffy about used goods for sale - I wonder how many are too proud to buy a secondhand house or car? Just because an item's been sold before or used for display purposes doesn't mean its value suddenly plummets to nothing. These products are often only available at all because customers buy and then return because they've changed their mind - should this be stopped too?


There is just a tiny difference between buying electronics with very little "real cash" off, compared to a car where I can buy one 6 months old with around 10,000 miles on the clock, and save £7000 on what the price to buy it new would be (which is what I got 2 years ago). Houses also tend to go up in value, unlike this was the price will go down.

Having seen the condition of "used"/returned stock offered by DSGi's retail arms, I certainly wouldn't buy anything like that from their business arm without the opportunity to inspect it.

The item pictured still has the plastic protective film on the bezel - would that indicate to you that it had been well used?

So an item that is returned within 7 days without fault and with minimal use suddenly plummets in value?


yep, that's the optimistic assumption...but it would also be returned due to extensive noise, overheating, unexpected BSODs + lack of understanding of the problems by 'Techguys' - DSG's tech support

I have gone through that kind of problems when I bought a laptop from Dixons that was clearly affected by overheating -.The really loud fans were constantly switching on and off , every 20-30 seconds - incredibly annoying).Techguys' support did not see the problem as there was no category like that in their scripts, so I did not have a choice but send it back, still within the 7 days - guess somebody got a 'great' clearance item later on ;)

still would'nt pay that for an acer... in my experience they never seem to last longer than a year before the motherboard goes... I have a stock cupboard full of broken ones that people have given me beacuse they cost more to repair than they are worth... it is allways the same fault, the power supply connection to the motherboard...

It certainly was never worth the alleged £700 RRP...

So your assumption is that they are mis-selling a faulty item? Don't know what's worse - to assume that pre-owned is "tat" or to assume that this company is out to defraud? :p


the truth is often somewhere in the middle :)
