I was just in the process of uploading an image, but can see someone has already done it. Thanks.

Anybody got one already, and has experience with it? Looks a bit chunky and heavy ...

Not with this particular model, but I have never had any complaints with them (Fujitsu), unlike Acer and HP.

For what you are getting this is an absolute bargain.

Can't reserve online, but just came to know that its on argos ebayoutlet as well and it shows manufacture refurbished

FUJITSU 15.6 INCH CORE I3 500GB 6GB RAM LAPTOP
REFURBISHED WITH A 12 MONTH ARGOS WARRANTY

You need to know what it would have cost new and then discount for aged item and second hand. To pay £250 for this I would expect the original price to be north of £400.

Would you pay £400 for this new ? No, I wouldn't either.

Hate that Argos have adopted the same model as Currys et al where 'ready to collect' doesn't necessarily mean you're able to go and pick it up now - they often have 'ready in x days' , ffs, if I wanted to wait I'd go for the delivery option

I bought a Fujitsu Lifebook series [i5 ] laptop from Staples last year . Not happy . Sound is poor and not very loud and the space bar always sticks . Would never buy another Fuji model .

Bit odd...

Yeah my space bar sticks as well. Got mine from Asda Direct. Still would've bought this one though cos it's better specs than mine.

I keep getting

"Sorry, we are unable to confirm the reservation for some of your items. If you requested an email copy of your reservation then please check your email before trying again - as the email version will show if the reservation has been confirmed."

Any good? .



No, you're supposed to tell US it's good - that's why you posted a hot deal!

Same here

Wouldn't get fujitsu personally, their build quality is horrible and they get terribly hot.

I had a bad experience with a Fujitsu-siemens (my first laptop). Not sure if I could judge this based on that though. Even Sony churn out dodgy units once in a while.

I just bought the £195 Packard Bell over this. This came in a very close second.

I have recently purchased 5 of these, from argos ebay store, for a kids club I am running. Nice laptops but prepare for them to need over 100 updates when they arrive. Took me nearly 18hrs to get from opening the box to 8.1 fully installed. Very slow to update but now on 8.1 they are great

Just went down to the Horwich branch, they don't have any and the cashier checked all stores in Lancashire and none of them have stock. A pity as a great price for a good name & decent spec laptop.

In stock Hucknall, Bulwell & Arnold. We use Fujitsu Siemens desktops and laptops at work, decent machines. Build quality not as good as Dell but good for price!

LOL!!
Well, I did try to order it, so thought it was decent enough (for the money). Was just looking for some re-assurance really ...

Managed to reserve one earlier. Looks like the reservation error was mainly effecting those who were told it was would be available to pick up in 4 days. I found a store in my area that had one in stock ready for collection and the website allowed me to complete the reservation but as im not close to the store i have opted for the shutl service that brings it to your door hopefully i will get it tomorrow.

Shame there's no USB3 though

That's refurb though. Where-as this listing is for a Brand new one.

I have checked the stock all over the country today from Penzance to Inverness via Ipswich Llandudno Belfast Birmingham London Carlisle and it is completely out of stock everywhere. I even tried my local branch which was out of stock as well. And when I asked the manager when it would be back in stock, she checked on her computer and told me it would not be back in for ages as it was completely out of stock at the warehouse as welloO

It's a end of line product hence why they have now removed it from the website.

Got one for my son - Set it up and then found it was not holding a charge and therefor is DOA and needs to go back for a refund - What a waste of time : (
