Why would you choose to pay extra for a second hand laptop?

​it's my personal preference. The refurb come with the same warranty and have same checks etc.

​and perhaps because the folks at zavvi told me this was not coming back down in price.

Not impressed that they deliberately raised the price the other night when the eBay 20% off deal was on

Maybe we should know a maths student just in case?

I have this one but want to sell for £700

Well worth the extra £40 then, for brand new and with 3 tear Apple cover.
Apple goods are still and huge rip-off though.

I purchased last week using the 10% off voucher, did mention it on the other post but people didn't understand the term 'targeted'!

I paid just over £735 and got over £25 of nectar points and £10 topcashback (tracked), so under £700!

Was delivered the following day, via DPD so could chose my delivery slot.

I am a Windows man, but have got fed up with the constant updates taking control of my computer every time I log in, windows 8, 8.1 and 10! So thought I would switch. The screen is spectacular, lovely colours and definition. The build quality is amazing. I purchased an Asus laptop less than 2 years ago for £400, it is now worth less than £100! IMO the £300 price difference is worth it for me just for the screen and the casing.

The refurbs are brand new pretty much. Replaced shell, battery and other components.

Which year model is this? 15' ,14' ,13'?

It'll be Late 2014/Early 2015 as the Pro Retina only came out recently. It'll be 13" for that price I'd imagine.

It's the latest 2015 model with force touch trackpad.

they say they use a 3-5 day courier?

I'd urge caution before using Zavvi/The Hut.

I bought a MacBook at this price from their eBay store two weeks ago and I'm still waiting for it. They constantly fob you off and lie to you when you contact them.

After days of messaging them they finally get back to me on Tuesday and said they didn't have any in stock and are chasing their suppliers. Then, magically, they mark it as shipped on Wednesday (the final day of the 'estimated delivery date'). DPD now say they haven't received the item from The Hut so can't deliver it!

It's really not worth the hassle to save a few quid. If you find a deal for a similar-ish price, don't bother with these cowboys.

so if you've just purchased one chances are it wont ship...?

Well I'd very much doubt it. If you look at their feedback, they've had some bad reviews off people who have bought MacBooks through the same offer.

Seems they sold loads despite not having the stock. They make sure they take the £800 out straight away though!!

wish i had known this =<

how do you know they've withdrawn the £800?

thanks for the info.

I'm in the same boat! Zavvi/The Hut have terrible reviews online but I gave them the benefit of the doubt as it's a good deal.

I paid by PayPal and checked my bank statement and the £817 was withdrawn immediately despite them not even having the product in stock!

It takes days to get a reply off them and they don't even have a contact number. They're just not worth the hassle.

I'm chasing up DPD to see what they can do but if Zavvi haven't sent them the item, they've got no chance of delivering it! I'll give them until Monday before I open a case with PayPal and get a refund.

Bought on Wednesday, still not shipped.
Phoned yesterday, telling them about the recent feedback I'd seen on ebay and they reassured me saying that they're waiting for new stock (it was meant to come in on Monday). "As soon as they're here they'll be shipped"

I'm very skeptical as they have several cheap items on their website (games dvds), then some very expensive items (macbooks). It looks very odd. The feedback for their Xbox's seem ok.

Given that the offer has been on for a few weeks now, and they've sold over 150 (as of today), i'm curious why no more feedback has been left, either good or bad. Surely people who ordered weeks ago would have left some?

Weird.

there feedback seemed good at a glance.
thats normal for paypal i assumed?
theres nothing DPD can do sadly, they will have been told they are getting a shipment from zavvi so have created a tracking number only for the item never have been scanned in which means they are out of stock. how frustrating.

guys the phone number is 01618131476

All they will do is ask you ebay user and tell you "oh yes, i can see you've paid..."
Lol, I know I've paid!

They offer nothing else...?

didn't with me. they just told me they're waiting for a shipment.

Thanks for the phone number, I couldn't find one anywhere. If their Twitter/Facebook 'support' is anything to go by, they'll just fob you off.

They told me on Tuesday they had no stock. Then they marked it as shipped on Wednesday and said I'd receive it on Thursday. Now DPD are saying they've received nothing - Zavvi blatantly lying here.

I imagine they haven't had much feedback as people like myself (I ordered two weeks ago) are still giving them time - especially as they told me it has been shipped!

Moral of the story is if you haven't ordered already, don't bother!

Shame, can't see many of them receiving the item within the next few weeks if ever.

I ordered last night after umming and ahhing about it for a while, it's a good offer especially with a 10% discount on top. Will see how the delivery goes but if they muck about too much then i'll be going for the refund sharpish.

I know this is their ebay outlet but their actual website company has better reviews on the like of Trust Pilot than John Lewis.

It came the following day for me. I guess the value makes it only possible to send next day.
