Haven't heard of this company before but there's lots of reviews saying their refurbs are really good! It's free next day delivery, just got mine and I'm amazed how brilliant this is.

I know it might be silly, but here's the price if anyone wants to know: £275.99 Incl. VAT:

Hot from me

Another second hand shop?

Sorry but second gen i7 for this sort of money even adding the cost of an SSD is pretty poor value for money. You can get 3rd gen machines for similar money and from a variety of competing manufacturers like Lenovo and HP.

Any examples of where as I've not seen an 3rd gen i7 with these specs for this kind of price before, so if you know of any, that would be a great help.

Same, haven't seen a laptop with this spec for this money before so please show me where they are.

you are aware this is a 12.5" screen on a <£300 i7 business laptop right?

I think this is indeed poor value as there plenty of business-grade Ivy Bridge laptops (Dell E6230, Thinkpad X230, Elitebook 2570p) for less than this.

Although due the stagnation of CPU performance the last few years, there is not actually that much of difference between this Sandy Bridge vs Ivy Bridge. I was looking at various Thinkpads X's and Elitebooks and made this table:

BTW the i7 vs i5 thing is largely irrelevant unless someone is running some mythical application which shows unusual benefits from the larger cache. Aside from some very rare (power hungry) i7-xxxxQM models, Intel's mobile i3, i5, and i7 are are dual core with hyper-threading. The passmark scores bare this out:
Intel Core i7-2640M @ 2.80GHz 4073
Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.50GHz 3469
Intel Core i3-2370M @ 2.40GHz 2786
The i5 result normalised for 2.8GHz (3469 / 2.5 * 2.8) would be 3885.

Anyway, here's a review:

Still waiting for those better deals...

I'd like to know as well - got a link?

better take a seat, you'll be waiting for some time.

Well, the 'better' deals do usually involve buying and adding your own SSD.

For instance:
X230 @ £200: ebay.co.uk/itm…455?hash=item1c546ae747:g:QnoAAOSw0HVWCqYA

HP EB 2570p @ £175: ebay.co.uk/itm…296?hash=item54259f1848:g:cTwAAOSwNSxVGowl

Dell 6230 @ £170: ebay.co.uk/itm…089?hash=item1a07fd0cc9:g:mNQAAOSw14xWJ5vG

HP HP 820 G1 @ £299: ebay.co.uk/itm…013?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.


Haven't heard of this company before ...


but I notice that PayPal is an option.
Heat from me.

Don't bother with this machine at this price. A few alternative options would be

ebay.co.uk/itm…283?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 is

ebay.co.uk/itm…053?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...
