@ NinjaBaz, I ordered one quite early on & have not had an out of stock email yet.

Being a PC World employee all I can say is this. Buyer Beware if anything goes wrong with it. Don't expect to be able to return it to a store for a refund/replacement/repair. :S

I would steer away from refurbished products. Whenever I have bought them, they started developing problems rather quickly. First was my Compaq laptop bought directly from Hewlett Packard which developed several faults within the first few months (too many to list) and was sent back for repairs. It took OVER a month before I finally got back - they carried out checks and replaced all the faulty parts but then again things started to go wrong a few months after that. By the way, I REALLY take great care of my things and don't misuse anything.

Then there is also the iPod Apple I bought from Apple directly. It died completely within days and would not switch on.

I also bought a refurb DVD recorder from JVC which was so faulty. In contrast pretty much ALL the items I have bought NEW have never developed faults whether they were 5 or 10 years old. So lessons have now been learnt - never buy refurb products again.

I understand why you offer a warning, and appreciate the sentiment. Its because of the risk, and brand new being so cheap, that I cannot see why this deal is getting heated. Cheap: Yes. Bargain: Frankly, no.

However, if anyone is brave enough to buy, they might want this information with them should there be any problems...

Dell i think are best for laptops i say this as i have three Dell laptops and there service has been second to none.

if i call them before midday on a monday then on tueday a dell engineer is onsite with all the gear to fix my laptop.

iv called them once in the last 18 months and that was to change a dvd rom problem. replaced the unit and took 5 mins!

had it have been pc world, and covered under warranty travel to the store, drop off the laptop, pick it up after 2 weeks.

Dell really are second to none with there laptops

if you work there you should be aware of the distance selling act which is printed in the returns bit on the home page you have right to cancel order either 7 days before or 7 days after delivery item must be as delivered but you dont have to give a reason this applies to items delivered to your home not collect in store and yes you can take back to store for immediate refund as long as you have your reciept i suggest you ask for some more in store training!

a lot of these are just customer returns under distance selling act ,the other person who says they wont accept returns is talking rubbish as its illegal if sold and delivered on the net, its on there home page under returns ,the items cannot be sold as new so go under refurbished some are brand new unopened ,some have slight damage to box etc, either way you can return as long as you dont damage item for a full refund so dont see what the concern is if you dont like look of whats been delivered take it back to store with reciept ,get your money refunded

you cant take to instore as the refurb is a seperate (sister) company from PC world. therefor it is impossible to send back a REFURB pc/lap brought from online if it was new then yes it can be returned.... i suggest you ask for a reliable source of infomation!!!


BTW i really could give a flying fuc* about my spelling before you say anything!

Sold by a separate company; that's very crafty of them. Assuming you are right, that would be the nail in the coffin of this deal in my opinion.

Colder than a penguin's behind...

yes i am right! check out the agrement when you go to buy etc and it basicly tells you.... if you dont like it as its by a seperate company it has to be sent via DHL back to them..... and if you return it as broken and it isnt then they will automaticly charge your payment card with the dhl delivery (something like £13.99) i wouls steer far away.... if you want a refurb get an IN SOTRE one then you can ake it back to them if you brought it there!

Indeed, the on-line division of PC World is a seperate company. Technically we can take stuff back that was bought on-line if the management feels the conditions are right, however there's also technically no legal obligation to do so.

Honestly I would steer away from PC World for Desktops and Laptops altogether. If they break outside the first 28 days, you wont be able to return it to the store. It MUST be sent away for repair (If a laptop. Desktops get in-home repair), and there's virtually no leway on that I'm afraid. (Or at least that's what we're told to tell the customers anyway, and despite numerous threats of court action and trading standards calls, there's been no change).

One other cheeky thing is the XPS Dell's that PC World now sells. Should you buy an XPS from Dell direct you get a 3-year in-home warranty on both Desktops and Laptops. With a PC World bought XPS, you get the same 1 year warranty as everything else. Crafty ******s aren't we?

read the returns policy you can simply take it back to store ,its under the distance selling policy just because its listed as refub does not change the law ,point agreed by pcw head office if thats reliable enough!: they are listed on main pcw web page

rubbish you have to buy online to be covered by the distance selling law as i explained in first email you are not covered if you buy in store plus refurbs via pcw currys etc are only available online you cannot collect in store or have del to store they dont keep them there ,the terms apply to there goods as printed on the web read returns section its very easy,it applies to any goods sold over the internet its the law!

first hand experiance:
1) breaks within days/weeks or if ur lucky months.
2) you have to send back there repair shop via DHL
3) phone support dont help atall.
4) different company than pcworld.
