NO NO NO. Look on fleabay. I get myself HP ML370 G6 with 2x E5540 12 GB ram for £35 it cost me 10 for win 7 pro and another 10 for sound card. I have 2 x 750W gold rated power supply's.
Still within same budget can get RX480 or GTX 1060 on top.
LGA1366 xeons are cheap as chips these days just need to look for one properly and don't get scammed.
Care to point out where these ML370's are for £35? If you actually got that deal (which I highly doubt) then you got a one off bargain that people are going to struggle to find an equivalent of.

For the money the architecture is almost identical to a Mac Pro 4-5,1 but I think it can only support max the X5680 or W3680 hex core CPU running 3.33Ghz. The CPU heat-sinks aren't good enough for the high clock hex cores unless you polish the contact plate of the heat-sink and the CPU die also and use really decent thermal paste. Chipset is limited to SATA2 but I'm pretty sure they will support Samsung SM9XXX PCIe blades with an add on PCIe card or a PCIe SATA3 card.. 16000 geekbench multicore for a single hex core Xeon bought off ebay and dual socket nearly double that for the money is a great system. Like my dual socket 3.46 x5690 Mac Pro 5,1 with a PCIe blade, OS X and Windows ;-)

Based on this being a popular system in my company and now being used for testing our Windows 10 rollout, I can confirm that its fine for Win 10. I can also confirm the price is a complete rip off, especially when you realise what recycling companies pay for these.
I'd assume that Windows 10 is pretty good on these machines, based on my experience with upgrading older Thinkpads (X200 and T410).
Tier One are fine.
A T420 with i5 2520M and an SSD is impressively fast.
T420 i7s are rare and not worth the extra.
The T420 is the last generation with desktop style sculpted long-travel keys, the T430 moves to laptop-style chiclet keys.
My preferred spec would be i5, 128-256GB SSD, 1600x900 screen and 4-8GB RAM (I have one)
Then upgrade to Windows 8.1 for a bit more speed over 7. Avoid 10 for now.
This one has an HDD and is a bit too expensive.
the price is very high considering you can pick up under £170
You can pick one up for that, but it will have led a hard life and is usually worn. This will be in pretty good nick.

Agree with quality of this laptop but the price is very high considering you can pick up under £170. Voting cold
I accept you can get cheaper, but refurnished IT stock is sold in grades and this is Grade A which means that it is in perfect working order and only has slight wear (e.g. key caps). Also Teir1 are not a reseller as many of the eBay folk are, these guys actually do the refurbishment, so they know the state of the machine right through and have tested and benchmarked it.
If you want a cheaper machine go to eBay or wherever, but it's not the same piece of kit at all. Personally I make my living from my laptop (software developer), so I'll be sticking with Tier1.

"Please note these units may feature a shinny patches on the screen which are visible when the units are OFF, when you power on the units these marks are not visible"

I like Thinkpads a lot, but I'd skip on this.

If I was paying 599 for a used Thinkpad, I would want the model number and serial.

These might have 2 years on site Lenovo warranty, then again they might have non.

Are you on commission lol. Seem to be posting quite a few deals from the same retailer

I'm starting to wonder the same. However the account would suggest otherwise. None of the machines posted have been a particular deal. AG112, care to elaborate on any of these why you think they are a deal yourself? As I posted in another post, there are quite a few better alternatives for less money unless I've missed something.

Just find it strange that they seem to post loads of deals from the same retailer? I might be wrong though.

It's a bit odd but it's a long time to wait as a user (7 years) before spamming the site. I can only guess they've just found Tier1 online and felt the things posted are deals.

They might not be the best dealks but I stumbled across Tier1 and thought they were pretty decent

That's fine. Expected as much. I've never found Tier1 to be particularly good value for money compared to other outlets. They also seem to have more of a range of older stock than most places as everywhere else tends to have very little of this era of computers.

For anyone looking at this machine, I'd strongly consider a machine running a next gen chip as these T7500 chips were notorious for running very hot and ending up being uncomfortable. The next generation chips (Prefixed with a P) were much cooler running, better on battery and generally the machines can be had at around the same price point.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IBM-Lenovo-T400-Laptop-Core-2-Duo-4-52G-6M-Warranty-Office-Windows-7-CHEAP-160GB-/370899356119?pt=UK_Computing_Laptops_EH&hash=item565b5309d7

If 14inch laptops are what you're after, for £10 more this adds, 6months of warranty, it's a newer model with a newer and faster processor than the deal, uses DDR3 ram which is vastly cheaper to add more compared to the DDR2 in this HP-Compaq.

I also find these older HP-Compaq machines have fewer parts available and those parts tend to be more expensive as a result, as they just don't have as much of a presence in the business world compared to the likes of the Dell e series, Lenovo T series and HP Pro and Elitebook models. One of the main reasons I wouldn't buy one as it makes them less economical to repair by comparison to one of those I've listed on a like for like fault such as replacement screen hinges etc.

Big fan of dells, but this isn't the most recent, up to date, or value for money. This spec could be picked up new (when available) at around £475 and the components are no longer anything to write home about. Gfx card is worth about £25 now, hard drive is tiny and again a pittance to buy new.

Plenty of better pcs on ebay i just got two e7400's to use as htpcs around the house for £20 a pop + 2 hd5450's @ £15.00 each

3 months warranty isn't going to win any awards, if it isn't DOA then the chances are it will see out 3 months

1gb RAM with win 7 64bit... that could be a sticky situation.

OP please forgive me hijacking your thread, but I know nothing about PCs and was wondering if oohflamey wouldn't mind pointing me in the direction of a cheap one just for Internet use at home?

It all depends what you want to do with it, they're all capable of doing internet and such like it's when you start wanting to watch stuff online that you notice bigger differences. But a cheap graphics card will solve that.
^^ Wow, thanks guys!

sorry the chap that had them was doing an office clear on ebay he only had 5 and they all went. I'd say 40/50 quid and you'd get a good spec. Win 7 2gb ram and a dual core processor of some description

I have the X220 and while it's a good laptop and I've upgraded it with a 480GB SSD and 16GB RAM, it's still showing its age (3.5 years). I had the X61s before (5.5 years) and while it was my favourite laptop ever, I wouldn't even dream of going back to it, let alone a 6.5/7 year old laptop! And to pay £80 for it too?

Sorry, but I can't endorse this. Not even for someone who "just wants a laptop". It'd be like recommending a PDA to someone who wants a modern smartphone

I have no idea whether to buy an x200 or fork out for a HP Stream 14, I know there is a huge different. I am a teacher and want to use it as a cheap laptop for working on, I have a PC for heavier use. What would you recommended in terms of performance. Downside of the x200 is I will need to invest in a new battery and less warranty.

Hard to say which would be best, in my experience of low end HP hardware the keyboard will be poor, where the Lenovo is generally regarded as one of the best laptop keyboards ever fitted to an ultraportable.

On the opposite side, as you said the warranty side is a key plus point and you'll be hard pressed to find an X200 with a long warranty, if you are looking for something rugged and want to spend ~£200 like on the stream with a 14inch screen a HP elite/probook may be a good option to consider at ~£200 for an 8460 with a second gen i5 it wont be slow by any standard and just as bullet proof as the X200 if not more so.

You also have to consider 14inch screens are slightly easier for productivity. It depends on where you will be using it as the X200 is a just about fits on a Ryanair/Easyjet type flight, anything bigger is no hope. So depends on your use.

The plus for the X200 is that it's lighter by comparison and also gets a choice of batteries. I'm not aware the stream has user changeable batteries so the life you get is all you get till you find another power socket. Where the Lenovo you could carry a spare with you if you needed. This is a feature I look for in a laptop these days as the times I need it are rare but the ability to do it is useful.

Another thing about the HP is servicing, if something breaks it's probably going to be more expensive to repair yourself outside of warranty (and I presume you want the machine to last a few years). The reason for this is the HP is more of a single piece construction and IIRC near impossible to open up. On the opposite side the X200 or any refurb for that matter is going to have no warranty support so there's always the risk it will kick the bucket. In most cases these top end business machines are built to last and it's no unheard of for a machine that's 10+years old to be still going strong. I've come across a few 20year old machines that still work, albeit not in day to day use and being kept for nostalgia.

The HP is entirely silent which the X200 while whisper quiet 99% of the time but it does have a fan should noise be an issue.

Downside of the x200 is I will need to invest in a new battery and less warranty

I will add the x200 may have a perfect battery, most refurb machines like this spend most of their lives on desks and in many cases with the battery removed. My own one came from SCC (SCH) Trade and the battery was near mint. Hardly been used. So you can and do get good ones coming through. At the end of the day the battery will cost at the low end £15 for the lower capacity ones and up from there depending how much life you need. Most in my experience will last at least over an hour even with the old used packs.

Downside of the x200 is I will need to invest in a new battery and less warranty.

Your common problems with X200s will be a wonky wireless switch. Aside from that they're generally reliable from my experience of them in work. We have had the odd couple with a defective screen but I reckon that's more down to users abusing them. Stick an SSD into the X200 and it will work pretty quick too. Check out the mouse on the x200 as it doesn't have a standard touchpad and uses IBMs track point nipple in the middle of the keyboard.

I can't comment on the HP as I've no experience of them.

What was the x200 deal?

This one I posted last week.
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-x200-ultramobile-laptop-refurb-87-99-ebay-newandusedlaptops4u-2072457
It's also an entirely different machine by comparison. Much cooler running, more comfortable to use.

Sorry but I'd be inclined to agree that an x60 is a bit too long in the tooth to be considered value for money at this price. I posted an x61 deal 20months ago that was less than this so this price is quite poor if you ask me in that a year of depreciation has happened since then. I'd rather risk buying from 3000rpm if I had to.

Further alternatives would be

X61 with 2x warranty period, 25% extra hard disk space, faster processor, less money and 2x the ram. Plus it's grade 1 so near perfect condition.

http://www.rectech.co.uk/2,notebooks.html
This site has X60 and X61's come up on a regular basis for ~£60 so worth waiting for one to pop up there if you really want an X61. That said I don't think they offer value for money even at that price. (NOTE: the one that is in stock is damaged).

How do these work please? Don't mean to sound dull, lol

These are used on desktop pc's (amongst other things such as pi's). All they do is allow you to connect to wi-fi networks. Pretty much all laptops/ tablets/ phones come with them built in but desktop pc's do not. You can either put a card inside the computer or just plug one of these dongles in.

Literally they allow your computer to see and connect to your wi-fi. Considering you are already connected to the internet you either are using 3G on your phone, already have a wi-fi dongle or are plugging your computer straight into the router to connect to the internet. So you probably dont need it.

Let me know if you need more help :)

Cold from me - why would anyone buy this refurbished dinosaur over a new Kobo Touch or Nook?
Considering the Nook was released in the same year as the Kindle, why on earth would anyone want to buy the Nook? When it comes down to it, they are both dinosaurs. And if the battery on your Kobo Touch lasted longer than your Kindle Keyboard, then your Kindle was faulty. And like much like Biker Jeff above, we have two refurbished Kindle Keyboards in our house that are 2+ years old and both are still in perfect working order.... and probably faster than the Nook ST.

The nook is no good if you've already "invested" in Kindle books though.

Bought the wife a cheap Kobo and that's as good as any too.

The excellent Calibre program with the Apprentice Alf plug-in (all free) means you can read anything on anything - so platform not really much of an issue now.

oooooh, cheers for the tip
Cold from me - why would anyone buy this refurbished dinosaur over a new Kobo Touch or Nook? Unless you want the text to speech these like most of the Kindles are way overrated (we have all three so I have compared them - even with Wii permanently on the Kobo Touch battery lasts longer as well)
Ordered. Thanks.
Bought my Kindle Keyboard as a refurb almost three years ago..... it still works fine.
Also bought a Nook Simple Touch this year, but I don't like it nowhere near as much as the Kindle. The Kindle is far more ergonomic to use.

I'm still running a C2D system, but it's six or seven years old, and I'm about to junk it. Why anybody would pay £400 for a pretty ancient system is beyond me. £100-ish would be reasonable.

I got a PM:

hi, how much for your c2d which you are planning to junk?

:)

erm, okay. and your reply is?

Cheap for a metal case iMac, just SSD it and Mavericks :)
This will Mavericks very well with a SSD and 8GB of RAM.
Still reasonable if you pop more ram and an SSD into it!

Usually those missing drivers are BT or some kinda add on device like special media buttons... Just copy hardware id and google it:)
ok, windows 8.1 installed just fine, with a few drivers from the HP site. windows 7 was a bit more of a pain, lots more drivers than 8.1. I haven't yet got all the windows 7 drivers in yet, there are a few unknown devices left to figure out, but now that wifi's working I'll let windows update get its 145 updates (that's just the first tranche) installed along with windows security essentials. If that doesn't sort out the missing drivers then I'll install a few more. Interestingly the win7 downloads included a bios update whereas 8.1 didn't. Office 2013 currently installing on 8.1. So far, all fine. I'll leave them running overnight just to make sure nothing overheats by the AM.
Well, to be honest description was not clear anyways:| But it's worth it :)
Hi, sorry didn't get to post when they arrived ... they arrived fine though. One has a slight crack to part of the casing, but you have to look to see it. They seem fine so far -- booted up to the usual "configuring windows ..." wizard. I'm building them both now, one with win7, the other win8.1. Will try to post again when they've been running a bit.

I did expect them to have DVD-R/W instead of RO, though ... bit disappointed with that, but my fault for not reading the description carefully!
As soon as they arrive! I pretty much only buy refurbs these days -- started with a thinkpad about 4 years ago from Tier 1 (absolutely perfect, still using it today). Then it was the very macbook pro I'm writing this on (came from Argos, I was a bit nervous about that, but again, absolutely perfect), then a samsung from Comet -- that one had to go straight back, thankfully Comet didn't go into administration for another month and so I got my money back, then a Toshiba from can't-remember-where -- again perfect, then my elitebook i7 from Misco -- very small scratch on the lid, otherwise perfect, and now these two.

With these, I'm expecting them to be perfect again -- my expectation is they came out of the storage cupboard of some large company who can't foist them on their people now the Haswells are established. They'll probably take them out of the HP box.

With all the above said, there are only three bits of advice I have for anyone buying a refurb. First, buy them in your personal name (rather than business name) so you keep your distance-purchasing rights. Second, only buy them from an established business seller (not a private seller). Third, get busy as soon as they arrive, install loads of software and try out all the features because you have 7 days (business days) to reject them without giving any reason. After that it becomes much more difficult, so if any doubt during those 7 days, send them back.

Tempted by this - but only 6 months warranty on this from the Tier1online website.
In the bios, change CPU settings
Got the i5 version of this laptop for a bit more than this, don't know about the windows 8 install issue but a issue I have is that the CPU is down clocked to 700 something MHz and I can't figure out how to let it use the full power. Tried changing to maximum power mode in battery settings but it doesn't increase as far as I can see.
Just a word of warning on the Samsung 5 series. Tons of issues with Express cache and the integrated SSD. It's also an absolute pain in the **** to reinstall Windows as the SSD interferes with the install. Mine kept blue screening whenever I enabled express cache so I got rid of it.

If you do reinstall Windows the only way to do it is this:

Pleased to meet you.

Perhaps you can explain how it is both "refurbished" and "as new" ?

Can you point out a better deal.....

I think the point he was making is that 'Refurb' should be mentioned in the title and I agree.
It's a fair point but there are better ways to go about it.
Its Gone :(

My detailed 'justfication', if any were needed for criticising something voted -90 degrees, is stuck in moderation, it seems. Not going to type it again, but I will say that the 550 (which is far superior) is available on Ebay for £276 as that may be of more use to someone..

Maybe hence price reduction? D'oh!

Should be way cheaper. The newer model can be had for (just) under £300.

Still a 40 quid difference. The d'oh! stands. ;) If it 'should be way cheaper' please show where it is. For a lot of us a £40 saving is quite significant and a new model needs to justify that. Where's your justification?

The XE500 is an old model, superseded last year by the 550.

Sorry, the specs are too low for the price, id rather build a Win64bit 8GB with 2GB graphics and 3.3GHz processor for this price.

Would recommend buying anything by Apple in the United States (combine it with a holiday), you can get the lowest end brand new iMac for a couple of hundred more than this 7 year old "deal" depending on exchange rates. I saved 23% on the UK price on a 13" MacBook Air last year
Did you pay duty on it when you brought it into the UK?

If you are willing to go one generation back (one year older) Scrumpymacs regularly has plastic imacs with 2.16ghz core 2 duo processer, 2gb of RAM and 250GB hard drive for £195 delivered:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SCRUMPYMACS-APPLE-INTEL-iMAC-20-2-16GHZ-C2D-2GB-250GB-LION-KB-M-CK7050AVVUW-/121182325039?pt=UK_Computing_Apple_Desktops_CV&hash=item1c3707892f

It sounds more like grade B, but Scrumpymacs is a good company and this is a much better proposition for an entry level iMac. They also come with a 6 month warranty by default. The OP has 3 month and you have to pay an extra £25 to get 6 months.
If my link is sold out Scrumpmacs has around 5 listed in other auctions at the time of posting.

Not much of a computer for the price could build a hackingtosh for less than half

I agree with the others that, this is expensive for the age, but a comment about building a hackintosh for half is useless. I don't think anyone who would consider this deal would want a hackintosh. They want an all in one with quality industrial design. Your comment would have been more appropriate for a headless mac like a mini or a pro. Also, even if it is over priced, the performance will be adequate for most.
