Hi, just seen this on the Currys site, I know this is a refurb but I think for the price you can't go wrong. It has a fast Intel core 2 duo processor, 3GB Memory and large 250GB Hard Drive. I've had refurbished laptops before and they look like new and come with a years warranty, correct me if this is different.

i got the a toshiba with the same specs for the same price 4 months ago from comet, and it's new.

I had a couple which I purchased as refurbished but came sealed in original boxes looked brand new.

I would much rather brand new and something a little bit better for a fraction of the cost - ebuyer.com/pro…123

Nice spec for the price here, these shops have a reputation to uphold so they wont give out tat, the 12 month warranty shows that.:thumbsup:

I bought a Dell 1545 from the outlet site (possibly the source of these machines???) The machine operates ok, but you can clearly see the scren has been replaced - the grille between the keyboard and screen is ill-fitting and damaged. I've spent 2 weeks trying to get Dell to solve the problem but they are incredibly unhelpful. I think they are just hoping I'll "go away"!!!

I'm not saying don't buy refurbished Dell machines, I'm just saying be prepared, not all are "like new"!!!!

I can't speak for the website, but I used to work in one of the Currys retail stores, Faulty goods were often repaired by unqualified part time staff in the warehouse and then sold as professionally refurbished.

I would never buy anything refurbished from Currys!

It's still a fraction - it's just that the fraction is 40/33

Was it discribed as "as new" or "scratch and dent"



thats where you have to be carefull with dell outlet, "refurbished machines" are like new, but "Scratch and Dent" show signs of repair or slight damage...

saying that, I bought a "scratch and Dent" inspiron 1545 from them last month with 3gb ram and 250gb hd which cost me £230 delivered.... and all I could see was a small chip about 1mm long on the side of the gloss blue cover... if you were not looking hard you would never have spotted it....

what Toshiba model comes with a 15.6 screen at that price?



I bought it for a friend, it was a L300-1AS or L300-7xx, i can't really remember. I think it was on sale because of the pressure from the new intel platform and netbooks 4-5 months ago.

The machine I bought from Dell Outlet was not a "scratch and dent" it was an "as new" machine. Definately not as new, and so far no sign of it being repaired - it's been 3 weeks now!!!
