Refurbished Dell 12.5" Latitude E6230 Intel i5 8GB RAM 128GB SSD storage with Windows 10 and 1 Year Warranty £220.99 @ Gigarefurb

This is my first post so please take it easy! My old Dell Inspiron 15R finally conked out on me and this was recommended as a good replacement with a nice price tag. A bit smaller but probably a lo…

So I picked one up A Grade i7 with 8GB and SSD due for delivery Monday for £199, so fingers crossed. I want it for the small size and for usage exclusively on the road with Office 365. For the doubters where can you get better for £199?

The Dell is a refurb laptop from 2012. The screen resolution is lower despite what the other guy says it also has poor viewing angles, oversaturated colours and crap contrast ratio too. Tidy spec back in its day and better build quality but it's dated!

I assume the increased memory and SSD were added as sweeteners at some point but there's no upgrading the old HD 4000 integrated graphics, I don't have particularly fond nostalgia for 2012 but appreciate the spec is still fine for office duties, surfing, etc. Are they shipping these units with new replacement batteries?


​I'll let you know when it arrives tomorrow


​see my latest comment. Was a very good purchase :)


​Hi, any chance you know how long the battery lasts from full charge? Will pick one of these up if any good, any down sides? Honestly ;) voted hot


​My battery is at 8hrs right now 90%. But it changes depending on what I'm doing. Only down side is that they had the 14" model for £7 more but I didn't see it. 12.5" takes a bit of getting used to but I use it with a monitor and dock 50% of the time so it's okay.

At least the T series will shatter those paving slabs if you drop it. Drop the paving slab on the T series and the slab will probably break but do little in the way of damage to the laptop.
That's pretty funny given that I used to own a T series back in the day. It got knocked around a bit too much (simply through normal work usage) and it had to go back to IBM/Lenovo for repair. Diagnosis was a replacement motherboard, which made it uneconomical to repair.

And no way would I touch a 5 year old used laptop like this which is likely to have a battery that is shot to pieces. And there's nothing like having to buy a replacement battery for £90 (or risk buying a cheap Ebay knockoff that's likely to overheat and burn your house down.)http://shop.lenovo.com/gb/en/itemdetails/0A36309/460/822253EE4EA44E9F884727080F41F879
​These are back in stock. I ordered one last time and it did come with a genuine replacement battery that was only a year old based on the date code. It's still going strong, no problems so far. They're now sending them out with W10 Home which is a shame because I got mine with w7 after the free upgrade deadline.

No checks are made that you are using any, upgrade is still free.

Why the cold votes, is this not a good deal?
No, not particularly. Its a kinda average price or thereabouts for a machine this old.
Here's one with a new battery at £135:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lenovo-ThinkPad-T420-14-320-500GB-Intel-Core-i5-2nd-Gen-2-5GHz-4GB-/331994848335?hash=item4d4c6f5c4f:m:mWwWw555Se91_LWFI_qmcGg
Just because a company has its own web site it doesn't make it any "more trusted" than buying from ebay. Personally, we've bought several Thinkpads over the years from ebay and never had an issue.
​Big difference between "used" and refurbished. the link you provided says no returns and no support available. So for £20 more on my deal you get 12 months parts and labour warranty, phone support and a freshly installed OS. Grade a refurbished is pretty much as new with original charger and battery. Never trust an eBay seller that says no returns.

I'd be inclined to disagree entirely, I'm not seeing a deal here because similar specified business models can be had for less money elsewhere with a similar warranty. The lack of a warranty is hardly an issue because in my experience of these sorts of machines if there is going to be a fault it's that it's DOA, after that they will tend to work for years. The £20 saving well considering the price of the replacement parts I'd rather risk it and just crack on replacing anything as it blows. YMMV but if you are IT savvy then you can get much better deals if a 12 month warranty isn't important.

SleepyChris
Need a guarantee with a laptop IMHO as a thermally induced fault might not present until the time you use it for long enough. Correct me if I'm wrong here...but a very short warranty period (which I've seen) from an eBay seller could be a problem..tell me if I am talking out of my ear

What? I think very much that you are. The failure rate for products of these type tends to be heading towards the bottom of the bathtub curve at this point in their life cycle with several more years left to give. You are actually more likely to have a failure in a new current generation laptop than with a quality used machine like this model.

Picard123
I installed some garden paving slabs the other day that were thinner than this laptop! oO
Seriously chunky.....http://www.notebookcheck.net/uploads/tx_nbc2/lenoT420s_5.jpg
This model of laptop with 2nd gen i5 was released in 2011, so this is likely to have seen several years of use if it's a refurb.
Personally, I'd go for that £150 HP in the other thread over something like this.http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-pavilion-15-p228na-selling-150-asda-bristol-2527626

At least the T series will shatter those paving slabs if you drop it. Drop the paving slab on the T series and the slab will probably break but do little in the way of damage to the laptop.

Pentium N3540........................................... Released Q3 2014. They are awfully slow machines (an annoying side effect of the push for cheaper and cheaper laptops that these are actually less powerful than many £300 laptops were 5 years ago). The HP is unlikely to manage to be in one piece after a couple of years of use. Sorry but it's not really a comparable machine to use as an alternative. Plus it's a cheap consumer HP machine, buyer beware!

Anyone used Gigarefurb before? One big concern I have with refurb's is battery life. I know my works Dell's suffer after a year or so. Wondering what guarantees they give since so mention specifically of battery's on their site.

ordered one from cex with a slightly better cpu and with 2year warranty for £130 today.
Link??

There are few on CeX website.

A condition with SSD, £145
B condition with SSD, £130 (may be out of stock online)

CeX sell those with HDD at higher prices. It is most likely that their price only considered hard drive size, and ignored the hard drive is SSD or HDD.

So make sure always buy SSD version from CeX, value for money.

The same place that puts the price up once an item gets 'deal' status. Smells dodgy to me.

Arrived today from Gigarefurb. It isn't what I would class as Grade A, there are a number of faint scratches on the lid and some far more noticeable ones around the edges/ports. However, that is purely cosmetic. The laptop seems pretty good, very fast and twice as good as the HP 250 G4 I bought recently on a Tesco deal (which is going back). And because Im using this for travelling it's far better sized (much smaller).
Was the Tesco one refurbished? What was the condition like?
Nah, the Tesco one is new. It was the 4GB RAM, i3, 128GB SSD that got 800+ heat. Very good deal for what it is. Obviously not for gaming but general use its fine.

For the purpose of travelling SE Asia I don't think I will require it. Got enough inputs to copy data over and not sure what else I will use Bluetooth for.

If it's still alive (and not nicked) when I get back I might look into one of those cards. Cheers.

Did it come with clean Windows 7 or Windows 10? Someone else posted a link to CeX but it had no image or mention of warranty etc. Is it like cash converters?

It came with Windows 10, but I reinstalled it anyway because I don't entirely trust them (only takes one dodgy employee...)

There are no pics of the laptops. It's a total risk as you're basically buying blind. The warranty is 2 years, though it's not as good as the 1 year gigarefurb one. They'll either repair it, or refund you the 'current' value.

Timewarp Friday Dell desktop deal - it's been a while since I found a decent Dell desktop deal and while I was perusing the usual retail outlets I stumbled across this, sure it's probably 3 to 4 years old but it's got a semi decent i3 sandy bridge CPU and for £114.95 incl delivery and 1 year warranty looked half decent for a cheapo desktop. Bung in a £25 SSD and the thing will fly*

Cheers for this! Ordered it and think I got the last (only?) one. Will take the fella belows advice and stick a gtx 750ti in it and make it a wee Steam box.
That particular PC you've purchased doesn't look like it will support a dual slot expansion card. I'm sure you'll find some other use for it though :p
The specs here (http://www.cnet.com/products/acer-x2610g-ui32120w/specs/) say
1 (total) / 1 (free) x PCIe 2.0 x1
1 (total) / 1 (free) x PCIe 2.0 x16
That's enough isn't it?
I'm not stating that it won't fit on the motherboard. But that model is a small form factor PC and only supports slim, single slot PCI cards. a typical 2 slot GPU like the 750ti simply is too large to fit inside this chassis.
Edit: After doing some brief research, you are in luck as I've found a 750ti that will fit, barely. This one to be precise, as it comes with a shorter replacement IO plate. I'd look inside the case first to ensure that there was enough breathing room for cooling though.

well found! I got this one but sold out https://www.overclockers.co.uk/kfa2-geforce-gtx-750ti-oc-low-profile-2048mb-gddr5-pci-express-graphics-card-retail-75igh8hx9kx-gx-058-kf.html

Don't bother with this machine at this price. A few alternative options would behttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CHEAP-Windows-7-Dell-Latitude-E6220-Laptop-Core-i5-HDMI-WEBCAM-1YR-WARRANTY-4GB-/231656823283?hash=item35efd299f3:g:KIUAAOSwrklU-Xim
Add the extra RAM and an SSD to match and you'll be about £80 as a minimum better off. Just beware of the grading on that one.
Alternatively and probably more suitable ishttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CHEAP-Windows-7-Dell-Latitude-E6220-Laptop-FAST-i5-HDMI-WEBCAM-1YR-WARRANTY-16GB-/321786915053?hash=item4aebfea8ed:g:KIUAAOSwrklU-Xim
Add the SSD for about £40 to match this deal and a cheap caddy for £5 and you get a laptop that's better specified for quite a lot less money. You could get a 256gb SSD and still come away better off.
You can get this model for about £70 if your happy to accept some minor cosmetic damage.

The first one looks like it has been to a battering...
The second one is virtually the same price (if you add 40£ for 128GB ssd) and the one op posted has a better processor and is grade A+ instead of B. And the 250/320GB external drives are hardly worth the bother these days when you can get a 1TB one for as little as 25£ on a good deal...

So I believe both your links are inferior to this deal at 238£, I am not looking at buying this, I am simply providing information for people who might be considering it... I still don't quite get the hate for this post...

but I notice that PayPal is an option.
Heat from me.
Well, the 'better' deals do usually involve buying and adding your own SSD.

For instance:
X230 @ £200: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lenovo-Thinkpad-X230-12-5-Core-i5-2-6GHz-4GB-320GB-HardDrive-Cam-WiFi-Win-7-/121675376455?hash=item1c546ae747:g:QnoAAOSw0HVWCqYA

HP EB 2570p @ £175: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HP-Elitebook-2570p-Core-i5-2-6GHz-4GB-320GB-12-5-HP-Warranty-Until-13-06-16-/361408436296?hash=item54259f1848:g:cTwAAOSwNSxVGowl

Dell 6230 @ £170: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DELL-E6230-i5-NOTEBOOK-2-6GHZ-8GB-128GB-SSD-HDMI-WEBCAM-WIN-7-/111803174089?hash=item1a07fd0cc9:g:mNQAAOSw14xWJ5vG

HP HP 820 G1 @ £299: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HP-EliteBook-820-G1-Core-i5-4200U-4th-Gen-500GB-4GB-12-5-Screen-Win-8-1-Pro-/321873479013?hash=item4af1278565:g:kt0AAOSwQTVWAcLK

Although none of those have an i7 (which I already showed is mostly just a naming thing), nor 8GB, nor the SSD. The RAM and SSD are easy to upgrades though. Guess this might appeal to someone who doesn't feel comfortable doing that.

Also, none of them state 'grade-a', although being newer, they do have a better chance of a decent battery.
