I fear these two terms make it a real gamble as to whether you'll get any value from it or not:
"Warranty 1 month RTB warranty. No battery warranty"

Errm, the warranty on machine, I don't see why it would suddenly go wrong, also on battery they run out after time and are meant for updating anyway, cost new battery about £25 deliered on flebay brand new, hardly a mega risk for an extremly good price.

XP License worth around £25. Plus even if worst cam to worst became faulty I am sure you could get around £50 on flebay maybe £60 with license.... But don't hold me to that.

Why don't they give 1 years warranty, or at least 3 months then? :thinking:
#5
arguably buyers would only be only paying £20 for the hardware as the XP Pro licence is worth £110-ish.
in that context, and even considering that you would need(?) to source the physical XP media to accompany the licence, £20 for all that hardware is an absolute steal. :thumbsup:
otherwise, probably not worth a carrot.

Because their special, you think they are going to sell you faulty goods, sew em under the sale of goods act... :p

Landfill, Old technology, these will retain very little value even in few months time. Do yourself a favour and get a netbook. Netbooks are more powerful, energy efficient, and look a lot better!

The 'refurb haters' around here are missing out with some of these deals...

This is expired now - but was a better deal than any Netbook at this price (better made, as-powerful, has a DVD drive)

I bought an NC2400 from BigPockets 2 weeks ago and as well as a nice, clean and lovely-to-use machine, I inheritted it's next-day on-site warranty upto April 2010 - that blows any Netbook warranty into the weeds :)

So long as you choose wisely, refurbs can be a really good buy - but this one is sold out now anyway
#9
Not sure if this is a Pentium4-M or a Pentium-M, you want the second variety of processor as it's faster and more efficient.
The netbook's (TM Psion) processor is probably not as powerful as the one in the machine above. It's built for efficiency first and computational power second. Intel didn't really envisage this sort of uptake for the Atom, it seems to have been designed more for smart phones than personal computers.
#10
Surely 'no warranty on the battery' is not legal, according to the Sale of Goods Act.

Can they *really* get away with selling it as 'maybe faulty', effectively.
#11
People are getting 'warranty' and 'rights under the SoGA' mixed-up.

Warranties are offered voluntarily by retailers/distributers/manufacturers - on their own terms - as a way of making you feel warm and comfy.

The SoGA overrides all of that tho - and requires a retailer to supply goods 'fit for the purpose' and 'of merchantable quality' which last a 'reasonable lifetime'.

Then there's the DSR which allows you to return an item for any reason within 7 days - although the seller isn't obliged to refund P&P in either direction (although some will anyway).

I think what BP are saying is "the batteries on these aren't likely to be 100% nor will they last forever" and by saying this I think they're covering themselves against you claiming a dud battery as a fault and thus claiming the a full refund including return postage.

Batteries are a consumable item and as such the SoGA only covers them for a limited lifetime which again is implied as being 'short' by the description.

The NC2400 I got has a 6 cell which lasts 3.5hours (brand-new it would be 5.5-6) but that's good enough for me - for now. If it had been dead I'd just have grabbed a new one tho - batteries fail - life goes on - this was a £130 "perfectly usable" laptop - there may be some straw-splitting going on here :)...

... and impossible to find with Windows XP Professional installed, unlike this BigPockets notebook deal, which also has an integrated optical drive unlike a netbook....

horses for courses.
this deal may not suit you, but it may suit other buyers with different requirements, in which case it is undeniably a good deal within those specific (and maybe very unique) requirements.

now sold out.
