This is a refurbished product and comes with a full 12-month warranty. But I reckon is a good alternative to the asus eee. For less money you get a decent screen and better system overall.
A refurbished product is a product that has been returned by a customer and has since been refurbished to like new standard. It has been data cleansed, professionally checked and tested, and reboxed with all applicable accessories. That means you can buy with peace of mind and make great savings.

I had an Asus EEE PC and after it developed a fault and I couldnt get it replaced due to low stocks I bought this laptop from PC World - same spec and refurb. Although Im very pleased with this laptop and it is a good deal it is by no means a replacement for the EEE. Its a lot heavier than the EEE, its the same size as a standard laptop (13" screen but in a case big enough for a 15") and you cant pick it up with one hand like you can the EEE. Also battery life Ive found to be around 45 to 50 minutes with wifi turned on.

This laptop was delivered looking like new - all the plastic and protective sleeving etc - good refurb. Cant beat it for under £200.

Good find. Been waiting for a cheap laptop with good specs.

Ordered.

Quidco is an extra 3.5% too.

yes my cousin got one of these and i was poutting open office etc on it yesterday.

it is bigger than a normal 13" widescreen laptop but still very portable - certainly not as big as a standard 15.4" laptop.

Turn of all the Vista visual effects and it runs very well. they keybpoard felt nice but the mouse buttons lacked a definate click, but if you use tap to click then its nmo problem.

remove all the instore info stickers off it and it does not look like a cheap laptop, almost IBM ish :-p

seemed pretty quick for the specs - nice screen but as mentioned battery life is less than an hour but for under £200 a hot deal

Just to say I have bought two refurbished products from Currys and both were faulty , I think in some cases when the items returned to currys they just turn it on and if it seems to work for a while its then refurbished !!

But saying that maybe I was unlucky but its put me off of refurbished items , and you can also get lucky I guess as lots of refurbished items will be when ppl bring them back for no reason , just because they change there mind or seen something better ...

Good price

WIFI Enabled! Better than my current tat of a PC, will complement my N800 perfectly. Now i need aa Belkin MIMO G Plus

45minute battery life? that's terrible. Pay £100 more and get a decent dell laptop of a much higher spec. You get what you pay for quite clearly.

I agree my father in law bought an e machines laptop a few years back,

i repair laptops as a hobby and i can hand on heart say it is the biggest piece of cr*p i have ever seen -cheap and nasty isnt enough to describe how awful it is-

battery life -awful, hinges broke, keyboard letters all rubbed off, it weighed a tonne! -you could have given yourself a deep veign thrombosis with this on your lap- and it was so plasticy!

spend a few more quid and get a low spec Dell instead

I also bought one of these over 2 weeks ago and it was faulty, so I took it to my local Currys store who said that it had to go back before any refund would be issued, even though I returned it within 24 hours of receipt. Still waiting so rang help desk yesterday who said it would be another 10 days before anything would happen. NEVER EVER AGAIN! Quality control?

well its no macbook although it has similarities.

If you get lucky and some idiot manager has not sent you a genuinely broken one it looks a good buy.
Less than one third of the price of a macbook that comes without a DVD writer in its base model!!!

Lousy battery life but at £200 it does actually have a DVD writer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Worth suffering Vista for if it works.

You never know. Both the Macbook and this EI systems unit might even come out of the same Hon Hai chinese factory.

I bought the ei systems 4213 refurb from Currys a couple of weeks ago after seeing the deal on this forum. Similar spec but larger 80gb hard drive. Paid £192 after voucher and Quidco. I know the battery life isn't too hot and it isn't the highest spec in the world, but at this price I'm highly delighted. It was pristine out of the box. If you're after a ridiculously cheap, functional laptop and understand the limitations of the spec, you should seriously consider one of these deals.

That contravenes all consumer law. You should contact your local trading standards dept..
They can be very helpful in situations like this.

Good luck.

Decided to give my 12.1" a little upgrade (only ever use it at uni. or when im bored of my main pc). And awesome, i didn't realise this laptop had s-video! Always handy for older tv's :thumbsup:
