Intel i5 3rd Gen 2.6 GHz
HDD : 320GB
RAM : 4GB
12.5'' screen 1366x768 HD
USB 3.0
Win 7 upgradeable to Win 10

These laptops are a lot better and better value than a new £250+ laptops you see posted on here. I used to own the 2nd Gen i5 E6220 version but this is better because it has a faster 3rd Gen processor and USB 3.0 ports. Upgrading the RAM and hard drive is simple, you just undo one screw to get the back off.
If I was at university again I would 100% buy this and a spare battery. To get a laptop of this spec is great value.

Really should put that these are 'Refurbished Grade 2' in the title.
I've got one of these. Bought elsewhere, but they run brilliantly, spec-wise. Main downside is the screen, which has poor viewing angles.

I have now put 8GB and an ssd in, but it ran great beforehand.

Seller has good feedback considering the sheer numbers they sell too. I don't think it means there were faulty and parts have been replaced - other have bought from this seller on here and got nearly new laptops!

The battery isn't guaranteed. If you end up with a rubbish one, that could put you out of pocket, even further.

These are old, used laptops.4GB RAM and 320GB HDD makes this poor value.


I don't think you do understand what "value" mean. Can you find me one with similar CPU (none of that Celeron crap) 8GB and 1TB for similar money? No? I thought so.

1st point of course they are old and used. It's in the deal title. I'm not sure how something could be new and refurbished.

2nd I type this on a perfectly viable i3 powered variant of this machine an E6330 (only difference is the larger screen and outer plastics) the one on offer here is an i5 which is considerably more powerful than my machine which is happily chugging away with internet browsing with a dozen tabs open and playing a video in HD to an external monitor via netflix.

3rd refurbished does not mean repaired, repaired means repaired. Refurbished in business grade machines generally refers to them being returned to a leasing company that supplied the tech to another company to use normally over a period of 3-5 years. The machines are then sold on to a refurb supplier like Newandused, SCCTrade, Rectech etc to wipe, spot clean, reinstall and rebox. If refurbished meant repaired then Argos would be out of business by now.

4th please provide a non refurbished machine with performance levels to match this, that offers at least the same ram, a hard disk space while also being under £120. I await the silence. In fact I'll even let it slide if you find a better deal based on your criteria for under £200.

Don't forget: similar build-quality.
This is a business grade laptop not some cheap plastic consumer laptop built down to a price.
For that generation and 125" screens the choice was this Dell Latitude E6230, the HP Elitebook 2570p, and the Lenovo X230. The best built one was the 2570p but it is heavy (18-1.9KG but they squeeze a DVD in there too).
Anyway here's the NBC review:
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Dell-Latitude-E6230-Notebook.83266.0.html
Great value for a top spec Ivy Bridge laptop (remember CPUs have barely improved in the meantime and Intel HD4000 is still okay too). Voted hot
This laptop at this price with these spec's should easily get 700 degrees+ hot. People on here who voted this cold don't understand what your getting this laptop for, this deal is great value.

So the two components that are easiest and cheapest to upgrade "make this poor value?"

C'mon, be serious.
Hot!

New batteries can be had in the £25-40 range on eBay. Also these things are easy to upgrade and repair.
cracking deal. 4gb is plenty for everyday use as is 330gb.

great machine great price
These are great and run Windows 10 no problem.. If you have any driver issues for 7 or 8.1 then google "E6230 Driver CAB" and you'll get a single file with all the drivers on for your OS version..
I picked one of these up VERY CHEAP from Cash Converters in Selby as it was closing down.....and the laptop had no power supply.....for this money they are amazing value (although mine cost £30 + £5 for a charger on eBay) ....they are pretty bulletproof, fast enough for most tasks & run W10 perfectly
if folk really don't know what they are talking about...maybe they should stay silent.
Hot from me!
Got a faulty battery with my laptop and the seller sent out a new one

I think you are confusing the price and the specs. This deal is 4GB and 320GB at £109.99, and they can often be had for less on ebay bidding. Laptops don't last forever, unless they are really well looked after. Buy used, buy blind.

To be fair it would be difficult to get an i5 Laptop which has been thoroughly checked & having a new clean OS install with 4Gb & 320GB & a full 12 month warranty for £109.99 ......... this is a hot deal.......not perfect for everyone but it's a workhorse of a laptop & upgrading components is easy

From day one there is NO chance of a 12 month warranty being honored. See all the negative reviews for this seller.
After 45 days you are on your own.
The laptop is going to be up to 5 years old.
The i5 and Dell Latitude part are not something to get carried away with.

If I hadn't just ordered the Robo Mower off Amazon I would have grabbed this as a cheap carry around laptop

I have a E6220 which I have had for 5 years and it's still superb. It's better than my similarly spec'd work laptop.
Does the battery stick out on these or flush with the lid?

I've dealt with this company in the past & had the only single warranty issue I had repaired after almost 10 months use......most of the poor feedback is not about warranty issues....more about unrealistic expectations of buyers hoping for a like new item when actually buying a few years old & used item or slow delivery

If you believe there is a better option to be had then please do post it. I also offered you to find a better deal that offers similar performance and specifications for under £200 but new which you seem to have forgot you moaned about this deal being a used machine.

Please do also post this fabled better laptop you can get on ebay by bidding for it that is less than £110. By the way I'll accept a examples in the completed listings section. However don't just post a machine with identical ram and hard disk, we want to see you post a laptop with as much performance as this deal offers so no posting an an Intel Celeron N series or pointless AMD A series powered machine.

As for the throw away comment about buying used, I'm on my 5th refurbished business grade machine and so far I've had no issues outside of general maintenance. Now if only any of the various consumer laptops I've had over the years managed to get to 18months old without starting to fall apart.

So don't try pushing people to buy this laptop that is up to 5 years old, and don't try to stop others from pointing out honest facts.
These laptops have very little life in them, and don't cost £200 anymore. They sell for under £100 regularly. You are likely to be the associated with the seller, and seem to have an interest in promoting this deal.

By my own words I referred to consumer machines. Please tell that to my business focused X61 which is nearly 10 years old and still going strong. I get the distinct impression you've probably never seen one of these laptops in the flesh and have absolutely no idea of the difference between a premium product and the bog basic machines you seem to be advocating as alternatives (but hesitant to provide an example of what you think is better) As you seem to be the only one harping on about these being a bad deal and no one else supporting your argument or point of view it's fairly clear to say that it's not an opinion anyone agrees with.

Furthermore you've harped on about it not being a good deal yet been asked by more than a few different people to;

- Provide a reasonable alternative for the same money
- Link to any of these fabled bargain deals on ebay that you could get by bidding on them
- Provide a link to a reasonable alternative with similar levels of spec and performance for under £200

As you can't manage to provide any actual justification beyond conjecture, I think most of us have realised to ignore your remarks. The fact that many people are praising these laptops and the heat meter going rather high it's fair to say the community thinks there is a deal here.

Finally if you want to provide duff information then I'd recommend trying a bit harder. The E6230 was announced by Dell in May 2012 so unless it's now may 2017 it will be a maximum of just over 4 years old.

Figured it's worth a punt at £110, they were good products in their day and I suspect they'll fly running Linux.

On a like for like price basis a desktop will be a good deal faster than an equivalently priced laptop. It's not going to be a slow machine by any stretch and would outpace any budget modern laptop with ease and I'm talking anything you can buy today with a budget of £250-300.

The difficulty is finding desktop options of a similar price as that market tends to be quite a lot smaller in the UK.
I think this is a reasonable deal - not voting either way though as the possible screen blemishes would put me off. Battered and scratched casing is fine in my book but screen blemishes would just irritate the hell out of me.
With the option of buying Ops version from them now upgraded with 8 gb ram and 120 gb ssd the price works out at £164.99.

I would appreciate anyones comments whether it is cheaper to up grade your self or is their a better model out there for £164.99?

8gb of ram (or buying 4gb extra) would cost under £15
A 120gb SSD would be around £30.

So overall around £10 more expensive to upgrade yourself. The opposite side of the coin assumes the seller isn't swapping out less valuable low memory sticks for larger ones ie selling this option with 2x2gb and forcing buyers to buy 8gb of ram by using 2x4gb and 1x8gb sticks in the upgraded options.

It's obviously a risk but up to you if you feel it worth the upgrade.

As to a better model, there's always a better model for more money, just that you again probably go back to square one about needing the SSD upgrade.
gone with 8ram 500gb win10. £159.99. for work.

Definitely do it yourself - you can buy 8gb ram (2 x 4gb) for just over £20 then a 120 GB SSD for £25, so around £45 all in but then if you do this you still have the existing hard drive and existing ram which you can sell for £20 or so so you'll end up a good bit cheaper overall

I bought a refurbished x61, regret it. The fan is whiring away on it and is about to die by the sounds of it.

Any new laptop even consumer grade will last a.good amount of time as general quality of manufacturing has improved over past 10 yrs.

Buy a new one with proper guarantee and support. I bought a new Lenovo 100s atom laptop for £100 WHICH came with 2 yrs guarantee from john Lewis - don't regret it and prefer it to something refurbished like my x61, which I do not what to do with now.

I never advocated buying an X61 in 2016. I used it as an example of how a 10 year old laptop can still be working. As to the fan noise, doing some custom levels with TPFanControl tpfancontrol.com/ can bring an X series back to a more suitable profile for the fan operation.

As a final point, the 100s with it's Atom processor is on par with the T7300 chip in the X61 which came out 9 years ago, the only places it falls down in comparison is thermals, power use and graphics performance. Considering the difference in build quality the 100S is bargain bucket compared to the premium line that is an X series.
Havin read all of the comments I agree Joolt who wants a laptop that has screen blemishes, if they have been in Buisness use for 4-5 years they will have screen marks. There are 42 Laptop users in our company, the laptops are renewed every 4 years (january this year renewed ) and not 1 of them had an unmarked screen. I know as I checked them trying to get an unmarked one for my daughter. That includes the CEO, Vice chair, and 3 directors ALL with screen marks.
