Found 25th Jan 2013
Great price for a top spec Asus Zenbook (well, bar the Prime edition)

Paid £505 for a second hand (only slightly) i5, and this is the A7.

Hope it helps someone. Beautiful looking machine , at half the price of a mac book air.

Enjoy!

(refurbished by Asus as new with 3 month warranty)

and

It doesn't run the latest Ivy Bridge processor...

Cold.

I have this ultrabook. Very good machine. Mine was new in PCworld sale 660 - 60 cashback. But you must update the touchpad drivers and some people report issues with the keyboard.

+very light and high quality ultrabook
+good battery life - I'm getting about 5hrs
+1600x900
+i7
+SSD
+USB3.0

- some keyboard issues - not me I don't type much but people who type a lot complain
- SSD is a slow one but still better than disk
- Lots of bloatware on it - easily removed

I probably sound a tad paranoid, but computer gear in refurb state always worries me. I'd be interested to know of any sories - good or bad - about refurbs.

Feel free to PM me if it keeps the thread free of needless bulk.

Tankee fer mush!

I never buy anything but refurbs, either Dell or any other manufacturer. Never had any problems, certainly not because it was refurb, I've had one fail, but that was a problem with the graphics chip from AMD, so Dell replaced with a new laptop which has been going strong ever since. In fact before being made redundant I'd spent over £500000 over 10 years buying Dell outlet machines for various reasons, none had problems.

I think my oldest refurb computer is at least 8 years old, and has been running fine, you might have to replace the odd HD, but then I'd only rely on a HD for 3 years and then replace it with new.

My acer laptop refurb, bought 3 or 4 years ago, has been bounced on buses, travelled across the world and certainly for the first 3 years, used daily. Absolutely no issues whatsoever, this one is still running it's original HD because it's a bit of a pain to replace, being an ultra-portable.

I have bought one online yesterday with Morgan computer for £606. Factory refurb with 1 year warranty. Arrived today and will check how good it is. Sounds better deal than op. not voted

I can confirm the one I got from morgan computer is in 'new condition' No scratches seen. Only thing is it does not come with original box. the rest are 'new' condition. So Far, very happy.
