Refurbished with some dents and white spots on screen (not sure exactly what the extent of this is but I will report back after I've received mine)

This will blow the majority of the latest ultrabooks out of the water in terms of performance. The i5 2520M has plenty of grunt. Build quality is supposedly excellent as this was originally marketed as a premium business product.

Doesn't have USB 3.0 but this can be fixed easily with a cheap (£5-10) USB 3.0 Expresscard which will give you 1 or 2 ports that sit flush with the side of the laptop.

Add a SSD or SSHD and you can have a portable powerhouse for £200.

Genuine copy of Win 7 (I believe 64) pre-installed.

Note that the header on the ebay page states "EXTRA 5% OFF WHEN YOU BUY 2 OR MORE." I bought just one laptop and the 5% discount was automatically added, reducing the price from £161.99 to £153.89!

Standard price these days for one of these laptops, generally finish around 125 - 140 when auctioned on ebay.

What do they mean by white spots ?
Dead pixels, or was someone decorating whilst using these laptops ;)

I'm hoping they mean mild scuffs or just the odd dead pixel. I can live with those. If it's a defect in the LCD itself I'll be sending it back :) They seem to have a 14 day money back guarantee so I figured it's worth a punt for £150.

I was thinking of getting a small form factor PC with a bit of grunt (for transcoding) for use as a Plex server. I'm thinking this might fit the bill. Just plug it into a network switch and hide it away in the study.

For an i5 laptop this has to be worth a punt. Nice spot with the warranty.

Does anyone know how much memory can be loaded onto these ?

Notebook, laptop, netbook. All meaningless semantics if you ask me.

Probably better with the latest gen microserver with the intel processors for similar money. Plus they are a bit more expanable.

No these will be ex-business machines and a heck of a lot faster than any netbook ever has been and likely ever will be. They are also built to last and easily can be chucked about without much care for them. Also very cheap to repair even major damage like the screen cheaply (iirc about £30 and some time).

I wonder how many white spots are caused by people so used to tablets that they jab these expecting them to be touchscreens.

Not that I've ever done that, obvs...;)

Expecting mine to be delivered today so I'll report back on the dubious sounding "white spots" and whether or not they're repairable. Even if they're not, as previously mentioned a screen replacement will cost about £30.

Also not mentioned is that this model can come with a backlit keyboard. I'm not sure if mine will, I certainly hope it does. If not I believe they can be purchased from ebay for about £20. Worth the upgrade I think.

I'm a bit shocked that this isn't hotter considering the specs. Admittedly, it is refurbished, but we're talking about a laptop that's 4-5 times as powerful as a N2840-based netbook for less money, which is also better built, more reliable and more upgradeable. I was considering something like the Acer Aspire netbook from Tesco that's currently £120 but you can't upgrade the soldered 32GB SSD which is a major issue for me. It's also underpowered for anything other than very basic web surfing and I think 12.5" is more useable than 11.6". I'm planning on sticking a 240GB SSD in this one as well as a dual USB 3.0 express card. Could also upgrade the RAM, but quite frankly anything over 4GB is a bit wasted unless you're running a very select few games or editing software.

I have one of these for work although it's a different spec i3 8GB ram and it works great, although I dinted the top lid on it within the first week as the top casing is a bit flimsy !

Anyway I've had it since new which was over 3 years and it's still going strong, and never been reloaded with Windows 7.

I've got the extended battery when when I'm on the road and when at home it happily sits in it's dock powering my 2 dell monitors and peripherals

I'd recommended this no problem !

I'm looking for a cheap, light laptop to learn android development on. If possible i wouldnt mind it playing some of my GOG collection too (stuff like baldurs gate, avalon etc). would this be suitable?

Yes they would work, not probably the best option for your plans. I'd opt for something a bit bigger. These are really only best as a road warrior for doing presentations etc or hooking up to an external monitor, they are just not fun to use when working for long periods with text. The screens are workable but to do any real coding I'd aim for at least a 14inch screen like an Dell E6420 or Lenovo T420.

eg.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DELL-LATITUDE-E6420-CORE-i3-2-10GHz-14-1-2GB-250GB-DVD-WIN7-HDMI-WLAN-BT-SD-/251678974538?pt=DE_Technik_Computer_Peripherieger%C3%A4te_Notebooks&hash=item3a993c624a

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lenovo-IBM-T420-Intel-I-5-2-5GHz-4GB-320gb-14-1366x768-Cam-Win7pro-4236-Pj9-/361118638826?pt=UK_Computing_Laptops_EH&hash=item54145922ea

Even an E6320 would be an improvement as otherwise the spec is the same just the screen is that bit bigger and easier to work with. The smaller screens are more annoying to do any real amount of serious typing, nevermind working with code and special characters that this normally entails.

If you are learning to code I'd almost suggest aiming for a machine with a higher resolution like a cheap Lenovo T400, HP Probook/Elitebook or equivalent Dell with the higher res 1440 x 900px screens which gives you a bit more space to have guidance side by side the development environment. Easily can be had in a decent condition for around £100 and will easily play the games you talked about.

Received mine last week. Came with Windows 7 64-bit pre-installed (no DVD included sadly) and a generic unofficial power supply. Unfortunately my keyboard is not backlit.

The "white spot" referred to was a single pressure mark in the lower left of the screen, about 3-4mm wide. Hopefully it can be removed but even if it can't it doesn't bother me all that much. For a general use/work laptop it does the job just fine and is a steal for the money.
