The "Multiple Dents on lid " description isn't a great selling point !
Hot
Extremely hot if you buy 2......get £20 off
Beware of these people - they claim to "refurbish", however BOTH laptops they supplied me with did not work. They don't refund return postage. Buyer beware I'm afraid.
I brought the E6420 with same specs and upgraded the HD to 500gb for £150 delivered last week for my sons birthday and i must say i am really impressed with it. The laptop is immaculate. It does say dents in this listing but you may be lucky as mine was grade 2 and does not have one scratch on it. The dents will most probably be really minor and that stock pic will be the worst one just to show what you could expect at the worst.

Did you not use the return process tab at the side of the item you brought, you get a free postage label and they are then forced to accept the return instead of messing about sending at you own expense and fighting for a refund of postage?
I've sent a couple of faulty things back to eBay recently....returns service has greatly improved

Free print off return label, Tracked and informed when return item delivered to seller.
Informed as to when to expect cash to be returned to PayPal account...and it was

I just had an absolute pile off these people. So much wrong with the laptop. Parcel force delivered it to the wrong address initially. Worst buying experience of my life. They did pick up laptop and refunded in full but everything else was a struggle with these people.
I won't be buying a used laptop from anyone anymore.
Jesus on a sunday morning was someone throwing darts at it......That Lid!!......
The problem with these kind of old laptop deals, for me, is once you've bought yourself a new six cell battery for it, or even a cheap three cell for around £35, considering the old battery probably tops out at about an hour, or perhaps less if playing a DVD, say, there is limited appeal in early 2011 Intel HD 3000 graphics if you want to play semi recent games at low settings, etc, say. I'm sure most people wouldn't be buying it to play games and I'm sure for office work, surfing and Youtube it's fine but once you've factored in a new 6 cell battery and the laptop's age depreciation/longevity, you have a decent chunk of money that could go toward a more recent refurbished i3 model, with a much more recent spec.

I bought a similar deal except mine was a T420 for £150(specs are similar though) I get 3 hours battery life from original battery, replacement 9 cell cost £15(non genuine). It uses Intel HD3000 graphics but I can run Rocket League, Fallout NV and older GTA's. I don't use it for gaming but it's still decent enough. For £165 all in I simply couldn't buy a better machine. Build quality of a business grade laptop such as these will be far superior to any new laptop you can buy for the same price.

I guess there's an argument for both and there is a risk that you might have to return it if you're not pleased with the condition but it's probably worth taking a chance at this price.

Hot OP.

Well done on sourcing a new 9-cell battery for a TS420 £15, if you could share the link, I would be grateful, whether or not it includes shipping! Thanks.

I have no experience with the vendor but they at least seem reasonably honest in highlighting the multiple dents, as they put it, and I agree that business orientated laptops are usually more durable. Looking at the blurb, it says "Battery Tested & Working for Minimum of 1 Hour". If it said a minimum of a couple of hours, I would be a little more encouraged. I haven't had much luck with unbranded (so to speak) replacement batteries over the years for my Thinkpad and Acer Extensa but if you can link me to £15 for a nine cell for the TS420, I'd give it a go.

There is no need to buy a second user unit nowadays, prices are cheap for new machines with a good battery. Also worth noting that many of these second hand laptops run hot and have noisy fans, plus the battery is a consumable item that may not hold a good charge for long. Years ago when laptops cost a grand it would be worth it but that time has long gone.
I wouldn't touch one of these cheap non genuine batteries myself, you could end up with an indoor fireworks display. Err on the side of caution with lithium batteries.

In future use Ebay's built in returns system, If the item isn't as decribed Ebay charge the return postage in the seller's monthly fees total and provide you with the postage label.
Alarm bells start ringing immediately at anyone, or anything, with "4u" at the end of their name....
The price of new laptops continues down yet these second hand sellers still try to keep their prices high. Besides the battery life, it's the little niggles that you don't think you can really complain about, worn or sticky keys, or usb sockets that don't connect very well. Maybe a crack or two or missing screws. And those dents in the lid are really big!
My daughter (15) is after a laptop for her birthday and has asked me to contribute £100 towards one. Does anybody know of any available at the moment, around the £200 mark that are worth looking at? Thank you.
Is the 10% off electronics till 30/09 (min sale £100, max £100 off) ebay wide or targeted promotion? I do have it.

Personally I'd watch private sellers auctions for genuine Lenovo and ask them for the stats (cycles, date of manufacture, etc.) - may cost more but even a bit used should perform well. That's what I've done with my Lenovos (T420, X220, etc.) never had a problem 6/9 cell - they had warranty so did not want to risk that anyway.
Just an afterthought, we bought a new one around 7 years ago (DELL, I think), but one of my daughter's stood on the screen whilst getting out of bed and it broke (I told them numerous times not to leave the laptop lying on the floor, open!). How much would I be thinking to get a replacement screen fitted? Thank you.
I would think they should be cheaper by now?
These are well-built similar to Lenovo's T-series (X220) and perform well, but heavy despite 13" (thick bezel) and like the Lenovo/HP of their day have some of the worst TN screens known to man. Best use a monitor. At least X220 had IPS option - still working great after all those years.
I agree that the dents on the lid are a bit of a depressing thought - bought two and one had dents the other didn't. Still, I am keeping one in stock to hand on to customers who want a cheap reliable laptop. I think if it was for my use I wouldn't care.

People complaining about the price should bear in mind that the i5 cpu included with this means that the laptop will be much faster than a sub-£250 laptop bought new, and is of better build quality.

I somehow turned it into a Thinkserver, like my TS140, I meant T420, will give it a go at that price, thanks for the link.
It's a second hand, bashed laptop. Not refurbished.

If it's a 12" screen, like this, it will be stupidly expensive. (For no particular reason) probably over a hundred pounds just for the screen! It's actually quite a simple job taking maybe an hour. 15" screens are cheaper from (say) £35 upwards. It used to be possible to get second hand screens on Ebay, but now mostly they're new. You'll probably find someone locally who'll do it.

Thanks so much.
I have replaced the screens on a few 15" laptops, and I did try with a Toshiba with a 12" screen but it was as I said over £100, really wasn't worth doing. The connections of the one you've quoted may not be correct for this particular Dell.

Just because you've dealt with thousands of these batteries (small percentage of the billions produced), doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Being an electronics engineer I've seen many examples. I don't think EE think it's nonsense, hence recalling 1/2 million batteries. Some of these cheap batteries don't have protection.

What I'm saying is that the chances of it happening are about the same for a genuine battery, because I have dealt with literally thousands of these batteries in the last 5 years. So you can scaremonger all you like, but in reality it's a very minor almost negligble risk.

Also Apple have used batteries that swell up in older iPhones, 3rd gen if I remember rightly, and other manufacturers such as Dell have had original batteries explode.

There aren't any business grade laptops that are new with these specs at this price. The reasons are, you only get 2nd user older hardware at this price, you never get new corporate stock at this price. Your decision should be made on the basis do I want a cheap plastic shoddy Toshiba or Asus, with a low powered Celeron CPU, or do I want an ex corporate laptop, with better build quality, support and cpu power.

Use the contact seller option on the eBay listing in My eBay and you can start up a case there, that is if the seller in uncooperative. I prefer to contact the seller, tell them the problem and start a case if they won't help.

There's plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise. A protected cell is safer. Some of the cheap Chinese stuff of ebay is quite frightening when opened. From what I've seen with my own eyes I wouldn't use one it my house. When big companies have a faulty batch of batteries, they do recall them, Mr X who sells Chinese imports on ebay/amazon isn't going to. But we'll have to agree to disagree because I don't think we'll convince each other!
