Mine turned up today, nice machine to be fair, hopefully it'll give me good service.
worth the money is the screen ok ?
Nothing startling, it is decent enough but not the jump I was expecting from my 8 year old Compaq. Otherwise the build is lovely, other than the 'loose' trackpad, the chassis is lovely and is like a bigger version of my HTC M9. I didn't set the McAfee up and loaded Avast instead, all seems nice and quick so far.

think ill pass then seen a cheaper HP 255 G5 that does just the same for a basic laptop

It's because you have a lot of crude on your machine. You need to clean your machine like once a month.


I've not known that sort of content to slow down startup, but cleaning your machine regularly is certainly recommended is such instances ;)

Refurbished not new. Old computer keyboards can be very dirty even if they look clean to the naked eye.
True but a brand new replacement is normally around 25 quid if it really bothers you. Personally the worst thing about second hand laptops is the drive and battery condition as these tend to be more money to replace
Changing a keyboard on a Lenovo laptop is not easy. You can end up doing more damage than just changing the keyboard, thanks to the joy stick in the middle of the keyboard. Opening Lenovo/IBM laptops to upgrade is not for the faint hearted.
Not true, they are designed in fact to be incredibly easy to take apart, just one single screw holding the keyboard on most Lenovo Thinkpads.
These are the top business line. Costed over £600 when new
This deal deserves way more heat.

More like £1200

It's still a good deal.

Your not going to see the keyboard in the dark anyway.

USB3 for high speed video recording.

A few more usb2's for peripherals that you cannot control wirelessly.

Shame about the lack of bluetooth for those you can but it's a easy and cheap add.

Massive battery life so you can keep going all night.

12" nice and portable so it easy to take to site but not so small you cannot see your charts.

A fraction the cost of a toughbook.

Was looking at these a year or ago they were more than this.

Would be straight in the cart if I did not have other stuff going on.

They probably have Bluetooth, although not listed.

The Lenovo X61 range was built like tank, Lenovo X200/X201/X220/X230 models is built like crap, the lid split into two pieces meant the top part of the lid is prone to breaking off, the Lenovo X240 model reverted back to the standard one piece back lid.
They may not be as well built as the X61, but they are certainly not built like crap, in fact, they are still some of the toughest laptops on the market

Most new products now have built in flaws.... with a planned and timed failure rate... all to increase those profits
And increasing profit is the name of the game ;)

You bloody cynic ! -Think you might just be right though :¬)

They had to give Win 9 (ooopps I meant 10) for free because it was so full of bugs, this wasn't fit (for purpose) i.e. to be paid for. Everyones been an unpaid beta tester for the last year (with full telemetric data and OS functioning and tracking back to MS).

ran windows 10 compatability test on my laptop which passed it, when i installed windows 10 it stuck at 1st boot screen

Something could be wrong with the downloaded installation file (corruption) / disc you burned / USB drive you installed from - even the hard drive you're installing to & the system RAM.

If not already done, doublecheck the download (verify the MD5 sum), burn the disc at a lower rate (2x/4x) (if applicable) & check all the hardware used is fault-free - run FULL diagnostic scans for the hard drive, USB drive (if applicable) & system RAM.

update

I have to confess I don't actually have Creator's Update to W10 just yet

not that I'm blocking it

I understand MS are not rolling it out as fast as they might - a few issues to overcome - then it will get rolled out properly

who else got it automatically without forcing the update?

I love how they say " forgot to update "....
I NEVER forgot, I just would NEVER EVER have that windows 10 crap in my machine.. windows 7/8.1 FTW
Can i ask why?
Because it's spyware nonsense. It isn't compatible with older hardware and it updates its self when ever it feels like it. At the same time turning all the spying **** back one each time...
That's all disabled in the creator update once its switched off its off. And the update issue is fixed.
I'm a beta tester for Msoft and W10 since before it was even released and on the forums the "spying" issues have been raised by many and as I mentioned. It has been addressed.
Why use quotes on spyware?
The spyware issues are documented by very respectable organizations.
When were they addressed? A few days ago? Do we have an acknowledgement of the issues in the first place?
We are all beta testers for Microsoft, it was part of their strategy to attract people into testing Win10 hoping to convert them and get feedback. Which feedback they will just ignore as usual

Windows 8.1 in the kids laptops
I'm sure you realise MS are treating those OS' with the same love and affection for telemetry :)
But you can disable updates on those OS' !!

New Display settings
PC enthusiasts will find a lot to like in the Windows 10 Creators Update’s various settings. The revamped Display options now hold the ability to adjust your screen resolution and adjust the amount of blue light emanating from your screen at night
What a terrible design! Awful! That black background is scary. Anyone remembers the nice gradients and transparencies we had on Win7?
BlobbyBob
Absolutely nothing wrong with Windows 10. Fast and smooth. Don't knock it until you've tried it.
We all tried it before we knocked it. It's terrible

You can disable any updates on Windows 10 , Not the easiest to achieve but it can be done by anyone ,How can a background be "scary" ? ? On what planet is that actually possible ? Your opinion might be that Windows 10 is terrible but my opinion is its by far the best version of Windows yet.
Yes if you leave everything at default there is a lot of "Spyware" issues but once you go in and turn things off and disable others its totally fine.
You probably use Facebook and Google but have no issues with the vast amounts of data they are using from you.

my upgrade fails. i get error 0x8007001f

I've had two pc's I've upgraded that continually failed initially, both had defective parts, one a bad stick of ram and the other an older SSD that was erroring. I replaced both and the upgrades went without a hitch. You can check your ram with the http://www.memtest.org/ utility loaded onto a usb drive.

Or can be had much cheaper (<£4.99 even) if you don't require the DVD
The cd doesn't look like any Windows 7 genuine cd I've ever seen! :(
I wouldn't buy just the licence from them as it doesn't come with the sticker
Now received. It's not a genuine Ms cd
Worth every penny , definitely better value than Windows 10

Like simon said. Don't trust any DVD that you get with these purchases unless you are 100% sure it's an original. This is the most important software that you can install that needs to be virus free. It's always best to download the most up to date iso directly from m$ and burn the DVD yourself, unless you are one of those people with tons of browser toolbars. However, you can't download a win7 iso directly from them with a win7 oem key.

Yep all true. However it is still extremely easy to download ISOs for any version of Windows directly from MS without any key. Takes 10 seconds to google very easy instructions.

Easy enough put a SSD and a decent graphics card in this?
I keep looking around wondering what to buy :) I'm on an old Mac ATM and it's showing its age.

The G4560 has had good reviews with a RX480 and then there's plenty of better i5s going cheap like this one :P

Listed as 2.9 Ghz but had a look and it looks like its a 3.2?
Edit* After a bit of digging i think its running the i5-3470s which is 2.9 Ghz.

Yeah, Im tempted, currently running an i5-650 which is working fine, but this seems like a cheap upgrade.

Hope these are better than the T400 I bought my Son from a deal off here (another reseller) that lasted all of about 3 months before developing an issue where the screen intermittently works on boot up.
Wouldn't buy another refurb now without a decent warranty which shows confidence in what they are selling.
It's not only about robust construction though as anything no matter how well made can break.
No, the reason these kind of machines are corporate favourites is that they are easy to fix by design and the manufacturers provide hardware maintenance manuals.
So while your experience was unfortunate, as long as you are patient and willing to follow the manual it should have been possible to fix it. Most likely a lose connection so taking off the keyboard and wiggling the lead might have sorted it.
I still have it here and tried booting it up for the last few days and every time now the screen is failing to come on, can hear Windows successfully boot with the sound played at logon screen. As you say i'll have to find the manual for it and try taking it apart to see if it's fixable.
Nothing to lose (which is what I always say when something is broken I want to fix it myself).
While the manuals are obviously the 'proper' way to go, don't forget the 21st century's #1 DAY (Do-Anything-Yourself) tool: youtube videos.
If you've never done something like this before, I'd watch those first even if you can't find someone taking your exact model apart. They're good for getting a feel of what's involved. Then use the PDF manual to look up any specifics.

I've just opened the lid and the row of lights on the bottom of the screen were lit up meaning it was working so wondering if just a loose connection to the screen.

According to pcworld business the pc is as follows: https://www.pcworldbusiness.co.uk/catalogue/item/P240319P HP 280 G2 - Micro tower - 1 x Core i7 6700 / 3.4 GHz - RAM 8 GB - HDD 1 TB - DVD SuperMulti - HD Graphics 530 - GigE - Win 7 Pro 64-bit (includes Win 10 Pro 64-bit Licence)...

Cons:
It only has 180W Power Supply Unit (PSU) which means if you want to add a graphics card and another hard drive you will have to upgrade it.

It's a Micro case!... v small... might give major issues putting in other devices such as a powerful and often large graphics card... see http://www.buildcomputers.net/computer-case-sizes.html

Whilst I'm considering it I think there are several aspects to beware of... the PSU needs enough power to supply all of your devices (and even the GTX 960 I'm considering wants around 90-100W just for itself... putting a larger / more powerfull PSU in a micro case is most likely difficult.

You can almost gaurantee for this low price it would have a stock CPU fan = cheap and noisy... anywhere between £20-£30 could buy you a much better fan, which you would have to be careful would fit into a Micro Case, or go water cooling for £50+ which would fit... although a micro case usually only has between 2-4 fans.

You can almost gaurantee for this low price the memory would be the slowest possible for an i7-6700 which I believe is PC4-17000 Effective speed 2133Mhz = not a big deal.

Pros:
Windows 10 64 bit = roughly £160!
I7-6700 = roughly £290
Compatible motherboard = £50+
then consider the Hard Drive, the PSU, the DVD Drive = roughly £100

All of the pros alone make it viable to purchase a midi case and 500W+ PSU for circa £100 and it still be a bargain!

What do you think is the fastest Graphics card you could fit in here ?! I'm looking for a cheap solid VR machine.


1050ti is the best card that doesn't require external power as far as I am aware, which would be the simplest option for this PC I reckon. Having said that, it looks like its only a 180w PSU, so it will be pushing it with one of them!

I'd change your title otherwise this will go super cold. To me it's an i7 6700 cpu for £480 when you can get it for like £250. By looking at the link it's within a built pc.


where is this £250?


The cpu itself costs about £250 bought separately, is what he means


yeah I know, I meant where can you buy the CPU for £250. cheapest I can see is £297.


I found it for £275 when I had a look. You weren't searching for the K were you?

This program unfortunately stopped Skype working on my computer:(
just reinstall skype
No, reinstalling doesn't work. Skype, now owned by Microsoft, requires personal data to work properly (on Windows 10 at least).
The biggest problem with Skype is it needs to talk to a lot of IP ranges to be useable, I have a huge chunk of servers defined as skype exceptions on my firewall to allow it to work.
Just checked my Virgin speed, 217 m down, 13 up!!, fantastic speeds!!

that being the case (and it seems to be a variant of the warning they give: Windows Mail (Windows Store App) stopped working!

Windows Mail needs the OneDrive Sync system services to work. If you want to use Windows Mail anyway, you need to make sure the optional OneDrive Service immunization is not applied, and reboot if you had to undo it.) - you could either turn it off when you want to use Skype or remove it entirely

Terrible deal, you can pay less for a bigger screen, better processor, more RAM and a better GPU.
Look out for Dell Inspiron 1559 deals

Dell Latitude series are a fairer comparison, not the Inspiron ones. Bear in mind build quality, which is what you tend to get with business machines. They are designed to last a lot longer. Lenovo x220 is a good example. 5 year old ones still run very well and can compete with modern laptops in terms of performance.

Ordered, thanks!
Saw this in Morgan's email. Not voting either way, but think it's a lot of money for pretty old technology.

To put it in perspective, I purchased a Dell 7559 with 4K touchscreen, i7-6700HQ, 1TB HDD, 128GB SSD and 4GB Nvidia GT960M, illuminated keyboard, Win 10 Pro, with 3 years next business day on-site, certified refurbished (but new) for £619 quite recently.

OK, without a time machine, we can't go back to past deals, but we can sure look out for them in the future.
£606 for a refurbished. No thanks.
8570W!! Quite high wattage for a laptop oO

I'll get me coat...
I'm not convinced that this is a great deal. A Quadro K1000M is quite old and not even as fast as a GTX 950M and the Core I7 is only 3rd generation, even though it is quad core.

Do they replace the HDD on a refurb or just scrub it? If it's just scrubbed then we've no idea how much use it has had. That would make it a bad deal as I wouldn't want to take on a used 3 year old HDD. Even if it has been replaced, I'd say it was marginal.

I don't really know who this will appeal to. It's not a gaming machine with that graphics card and it's over-specced and over-priced for a basic office/internet laptop. It's also quite heavy.

It's not cold for the spec at the price, but I can't quite bring myself to vote hot either.

Top cashback 4.54% apparently = £423.83.

specs not too shabby.
I have this Laptop. It has excellent specs. Plus the SSD is really fast. I can boot up machine in 12 seconds. £430 is a good price. I paid £474 direct from HP. All depends on weather you trust MISCOs 2.1/10 pish poor rating to actually deliver your product with no aggravation. Personally I didn't want to take. Risk so i ordered from HP. At least there customer service is exceptional.
elbs
this isn't really that good a deal, FHD screen aside, IMO..

i wouldn't pay 430 quid for those specs taking away the FHD. i don't think the screen is worth the extra personally


Just curious as I am looking to buy a laptop, but what would you recommend as better for around this price point??
Misco is fine. But I'd like to say that: on a laptop, my biggest complaint at budget levels is keyboard and trackpad. Had a cheap Lenovo and it was awful. Got a good HP now. Envious of my wife's MacBook
Would not but from Misco personally. Reviews on https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.misco.co.uk are not good

This is a completely different scenario and the bird is still in the coop. :)
It’s a business class PC and comes with as Lenovo state:
“Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 10 Pro.”
In effect you have a full license for Win10 Pro and can choose to use the pre-installed Win7 Pro for as long as you like and move to Win10 in the future if you prefer at any time.
This is only available with Windows Pro on certain business PCs and not on consumer PCs with the Home version.
MS have been doing this for years.
Absolutely nothing in either the product summary or tech spec to confirm that.
Look on the Levono site as that's what I was directly quoting from and search for Windows Downgrade rights which is a long term thing.

It's technically for businesses but anyone can register for it I believe, you contact the VIP sales team via chat and you send them the E-value code, beside the add to basket button. I'm not sure if you can configure it as you want as above for £299+delivery, the discount might only be applied on the price not inc. VAT).
I'd be interested to hear if anyone tried it with a sales agent, would make a sweet deal all the sweeter!

A business sale may not be covered by the distance selling regulations for consumers. Returns policy may be different. Dell previously refused to accept returns on this basis. Which means some people have to claim they are damaged and refuse to accept.
Mine has now been shipped but from China

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.

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.

I'm looking for a desktop pc with a high end i5 (6600k) or preferably i7 (6700k), at least 16gb of ddr4 ram, but no need for a dedicated gpu at all. Does anybody know of a good option? Everything I find has a GPU bundled or is an unknown manufacturer.
Well due to an over zealous fraud check, my dad ended up with two. Ones just been refused delivery so watch for it coming back in stock.

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

Thanks for coming back to me. I bit the bullet in the end and bought the Lenovo Yoga 300 from Argos refurb site. Got a nice pleasant surprise when it arrived. Posted as having 32gb eMMC drive and 2gb ram and it has 4gb ram and 500gb hard drive. In very nice condition with just a couple of marks.

Mine arrived today
Not bad scuffed on sides and 1 dent at front and some sticky tape residue on bottom which I cleaned off
Cheap Chinese adapter but battery reported 6hrs though real world video use have about 2.30-3hrs which is ok
HDMI port was a little funny till I blew out dust still not sure about it but I messaged via eBay and was offered 2 months extra warranty which I will accept , I can pick up a dock for display to tv , 4gc ram in one slot
Runs hotish at 70c but I'm gonna artic silver it which should bring it down
Mainly bought to make it hackintosh
Ps bought the cheap toshiba and Lenovo from Argos
Toshiba decent build quality but too slow
Lenovo felt OK but poor build quality keys feel too flexible and trackpad doesn't even work properly , hence both going back
Overall I think this is a good machine but you have to lower condition expectations bar that it seems fine
Ps came with win 7 wouldn't go to win 10 with all the drm issues I'm hearing about
I assume you bought the Lenovo Yoga 300 from Argos Ebay at £104.99. Can I ask what spec yours was, i.e. 32gb 2gb ram etc as it was advertised. A couple of people said they got different specs but not posted any pictures.

i5 aint exactly "fast". Tech from 2010!
So go on then, what do you do with your laptop that requires a faster processor?
I'm using a 2007 Dell D620 with a Core2Duo processor and 4gb RAM as we speak with a 120GB SSD fitted and its happily running Win10, Office 365 and i can watch movies and downloads on it, and surf the net on it.
I'm a video editor.
i5 will only suite web browsing, downloading movies etc. Will lag with gaming, with content creation, and with heavy multitasking.
There's a reason why this laptop is cheap, and it's not because Dell are in a good mood.
2GB ram is the absolute minimum to run windows 10 64bit, leaving a paltry 2gb for anything else you want to use, like word, like web browsing, like video playback etc.
Just want to use it to browse the web? Get a tablet instead.
I have 4 purpose built systems I built by the way.
So why are you even on this thread commenting on something that clearly doesnt suit your needs anyway?? Why does it even interest you?
I do heavy duty data analysis in Excel as part of my daytime job and this deal wouldnt suit it, but it doesnt mean i cant see the merits of it.
Uh huh, the reason they are cheap is because they are used and probably 3+ years old. Would you pay as much for a 3 year old car as you would a new one??
And an i5 WONT lag with gaming. Gaming is heavily dependent on the GRAPHICS card, not the processor. I'm surprised an "expert" such as yourself didnt know that. Put a heavy duty graphics card on the front of an i5 and it'll handle 98% of all games. I'd an Alienware 13 last year running an i5 and a GeForce 860M graphics card and it was great. And this ISNT a gaming laptop. It has not got the graphics card for it. It would be foolish to think otherwise.
4GB is MORE than enough for general use. I've this Core 2 Duo D620 with 4GB RAM on at the minute. I've 5 tabs open in Chrome, Excel 2016 open, Word 2016 open and on the fifth tab in Chrome, i'm running an HD movie clip on you tube.
CPU usage is sitting at between 33 and 39% and memory is sitting at 1.7GB used, and the machine is perfectly usable with no lag on the video or in moving between apps. And thats a **** 9 year old Core2Duo processor :rolleyes:
Why use a laptop instead of a tablet? Gee, well ever tried typing on a tablet? Or shifting between multiple tabs in Chrome? Or maybe doing a bit of spreadsheet work? Or typing an email? Maybe you poke your keyboard with one finger so a tablet is great for you, but most people prefer the convenience of a keyboard. And if they dont - get a tablet and ignore this thread because its not relevant.
Built four computers yourself? Woohoo! Your mum must be so proud!

I was going to comment myself but then saw you'd addressed everything! But as predicted here is the self-proclaimed IT expert who is a video editor AND has built 4 computers himself!

I'm sure they're aware that a 'professional' video editor probably has thousands of pounds at his disposal and therefore would not be considering a 3 year old laptop, that many people use GPU encode/transcode and that a broad statement such as 'i5 will lag' and suitable for basic web browsing doesn't ring true - better tell Intel and the public as i3, Celeron, Pentium and Atom are all obsolete. Let's ignore the fact that much of the time, i7 CPUs are the same silicon as an i5 with a slightly higher base clock, turbo and maybe 1MB more cache...
Can anyone recommend a cheap external cd drive to go with this laptop Windows 10?
ronray
I picked mine up today. I was initially a little disappointed when I saw the outside of the case because it had some scuffs. But I was surprised to find the screen and keyboard both looked virtually unused. On top of this the battery also seems pretty good. It's been running for about an hour and it's still reporting about 3 hours left. So overall I'm very happy.

Chances are the keyboard has been replaced at some point as they're easy to swap out, so its good its been done :)

RE: the outer case, check ebay as you could probably pick up a new one for a few £ and they' not hard to fit

Adblocker? You'll just end up using virtual memory, which on a yesterday-tech mechanical hard drive is going to slow down even further.
Just want to use it to browse the web in internet explorer? Get a tablet and bluetooth keyboard instead, you'll have a much wider range of apps to suit low power devices.
I have 4 purpose built systems I built by the way.
And yet people constantly fail to understand why I still use Windows XP...
I use VideoReDo to edit videos on a Core2Duo with 3GB memory (and no pagefile) quite happily. And I can have Firefox and Chrome with lots of tabs open no problem. Have recently bought a couple of secondhand i5 (4th gen) laptops (total cost ~£230) and am working on getting XP running on them - the Toshiba L50t with a 120GB SSD absolutely flies. And apparently you can hack XP to removed the 3.5GB memory limit - not that I would condone such behaviour...
XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, so you won't be protected against any OS exploits your virus checker doesn't catch.
True, but then I am pretty careful. I have multiple machines, all with ZoneAlarm firewall and Avast anti-virus; I regularly do a fresh re-install of the operating system; on my main machine I only browse to reputable sites as well as using several browsers, with one specifically restricted for secure online activities (eg online banking). If you act like an idiot, then maybe you do need all the constant updates from Microsoft to prevent your machine being compromised, but if you're sensible you can take full advantage of the improved performance you get from using a lighter-weight O/S like XP pretty safely.
Putting a 3rd party between your machine's OS and malware protection does not in any reality make it more protected.

Sorry, you'll have to explain that statement a bit more.

Er, link now leads to cost of £399, not quite the deal as posted. Maybe time to expire..?
I ordered one of these and just been updating it. However it is constantly shutting down and is extremely hot to touch near the power supply. I guess it will be going back.
Bossworld
There's every chance that an ex corporate machine doesn't get moved much. I've maybe taken my HP640 to three or four meetings, and taken it home a similar number of times - the rest of the time it just lives on a docking station. Hence the keyboard/trackpad also remain unused.

Yeah, my experience is that generally the ex-business ultraportables are in excellent condition. I think those that get the bigger ThinkPads tend to use them as a primary computer, but an ultraportable is generally for those who don't want the weight (and therefore can't justify the weight; probably not mission critical).

I've bought maybe three X200 (two girlfriends -- at different times -- and myself), one X60, two X61s, and my current X230. I also frequent eBay for ThinkPads and my experience is that you're 100% right.

...suppose Astec you wont think too much of this 2470p touch screen that is like new that I bought last week either
[img]https://s32.postimg.org/59y8ojuxx/Capture2.pngimage hosting 10mb limit[/img]
(ps its actually 2.53ghz cpu, error in the listing)

That's a first gen i5 processor which is 1 year newer than my X200 and being honest wholesale/spares units about the going rate. Not saying it's a bad deal, just that I'm frustrated with SCC/SCH having decided to up their prices.

What I'm pointing out here is not that you didn't get a good deal, more than SCH trade have moved the boundaries. I picked up a B grade 8440p for £140 in August 2013. A short time later after I picked up that bargain (it still had 6months warranty) they upped the price to £168 so an increase of £28. The prices now vary in the last few weeks between £168 and £192 despite the fact that the hardware is another 3 years older since the price has increased. I check the pages nearly daily and have yet to see a single machine in their 'grade B' range to be cheaper than what I picked up 3 years ago.

Interestingly I'm unaware of any computers of note in the last 20 years that have appreciated in value as the curve is generally towards the dropping in value. This is the crux of my point that SCH have lost their way being a good value supplier to now just being average as I can get similar deals in about a dozen different suppliers with some cases being better listed to know what you are going to get. It's why I've not purchased from them in 3 years despite a number of successive purchases before that time and why I encourage others to consider buying elsewhere.

Edited By: Astec123 on Aug 05, 2016 00:31
I started buying from them in 2012 and never got such bargains, I paid more than that for a X61 (in 2012 though). My invoices on my account only start in 2013 as I think I bought the first few without creating an account, the first invoiced one is a X200 in Q3 2013 for £71.25. It was missing a key from the keyboard and had a crack in the case that was impossible to fix without epoxying it quite a bit. My dad still uses it daily! (I did replace the missing key)

I still think these are good value but personally I've always got excellent batteries (all HP machines with > 90% design capacity remaining) from the machines bought from SCCTrade.

They've got a few Elitebook 2560p/8460p machines for 88 quid, also some X201 and X220 machines for 88 quid too - woohoo! Must resist... I have enough already... sure what would I use them for...

Bought an HP 2570p from SCC trade on Monday for £88 delivered today (had a price drop).Grade C, a few small dings on the lid otherwise perfect. Had the win 7 sticker under the battery, following a clean install of windows 10 it still activated (using the win 7 key) even though its past 29 July, so SCC do still have a few deals :)https://s31.postimg.org/vw6bkuqcr/Capture.pngforum image hosting

I'm not so convinced, while it's a pretty a reasonable deal given the specs, it's a lot of risk to buy given that you have to get the PSU and risk it being a complete dud on arrival as they are sold as such with no helpful information. If you just purchased a 2570p it would be at from 2012 so now 4 years old.

I picked up an X200 in Q1 2013 which released in Q3 2008 as below (missing only a hard disk and otherwise in pretty much unused condition) so 4 years and 6 months old. The missing hard drive is one key way with SCH/SCC to get a machine that's isn't a wreck, otherwise you really just take a big risk.

Those sorts of deals were a regular feature on SCH trade but now there are very few unmissable deals from them which is a big shame considering how many items I'd purchased from them.

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

Im guessing because it looks he joined just to posr this and therefore probably works for the company.

Though that does look like a good price, for this exact PC. Though same specs can probably be had for less.
Good price for a well-specced SFF - heated!
This will do nicely as a Plex server and HTTP in-one... assuming there's room for a 3.5" HDD in there.

For anyone interested just noticed that Opium Pulses have 1100+ Windows 7 licenses back in stock - bit more expensive though, currently $15.71 which equates to £12.45 (though part of this will be due to the fall in the pound)

I bought a couple last time round for laptops I was refurbishing (worked fine inc upgrade to W10 though i had to activate them by the phone method)
hi is there a more straightforward way to download this what do i do?
thanks seems very complicated with all this torrent stuff
I was an technical preview tester months before the Windows Insider release. It went through many builds with options being added, removed, and changed. Microsoft actively got feedback from testers and adapted it during development. Personally I am quite happy with the final product that has emerged, it is quicker, slicker, more user friendly and makes my job a hell of a lot easier.

Most of my supported SME's have either totally migrated or have a cross section of Windows 7/8.1 and 10. More often than not the feedback I receive is very positive and users would not move back once they are trained correctly about the features it offers to increase their productivity. One thing I can tell you without a doubt is that your average business user doesn't give too hoots to what OS the computer runs, so long as it lets them do their job without hassle.

The people who pick fault with the Windows app store on the desktop version of Windows... well, anyone can work out the issue there. Desktop Windows has more apps than you can shake a stick at, maybe try the alternative app store that you used on Windows 7, you know the one, is called Google, where you can search for even more new programs that edit your dog pictures to make it look like their smiling at you. Oh and that still works fine on Windows 10. ;)

So I guess its apples and pears, like anything in life, choice is key, use what you want. But I remember the same discussions happened when Windows 98 and Windows 7 came out, people were naysayers and evangelised that Windows 95 or XP was better. Some people hate change, human nature.

But anyways, back to this deal... dubious at very best. But with Opium Pulses not being an authorised Microsoft OEM seller, more likely than not breach of copyright, will it work? Yes. If a business used one would it stand up in a court of law in a copyright infringment case? I doubt it.

Just chill and take it easy, use a flavor of Linux if you dare! :D

nothing wrong with windows 10 - its a great OS - i would like to see a list of specific faults from the whingers (no doubt i'll get one)
the shambles (on some genuine W7 installs) is the upgrade procedure from 7 to 10 - its a total joke - hanging on 99% download / hanging on "checking for updates" etc

hi can anyone tell me how to put it on my pc downloaded a torrent file but it does not do anything anyone got a step by step guide including suitable torrent file whatever that is cheers
Install Torrent client (Tixati is a good one)
Download Torrent, preferably Generation2 or murphy78 releases as they aren't pirated.
Then download and install Rufus and use it to 'burn' the ISO to DVD or USB.
thanks for that not your fault but not straight forward and i have never heard of all theses things if I follow the sequence I should be alright then cheers

no box just the cd's in plastic bag
Thanks for info. there is a DVD windows 7 recovery media for windows 7 products SP1, but it's not " Windows 7 Professional "
I upgraded to Windows 10 as soon as I got it takes 2 to 3 hours to download and install

My pint is that "where is the Windows 7 Professional CD" as they advertised and you see in the picture next to the PC in case if the PC needed a fresh reinstall in the future.


it's installed on pc with licence no on side of desktop the CD will reinstall for you
it's installed and you have Recovery CD which will install it if you need it you also have win 7 serial no
