I bought one a few years ago but never really used it for emulators/gaming much. It would mainly come into its own for gaming whilst travelling/on holiday (more comfortable gaming on PC /TV at home) but the battery drains quickly when gaming or watching video and it gets worryingly hot so it's not much use. I suppose having to stop gaming to charge it after an hour or two could be seen as a good thing though, as we all do tend to overdo it and neglect to take breaks!

had mine quite a few years, awesome for retro upto PS1, plus nvidia chipset although old still works very well, shame its stuck at 4.2.2. Android.

Good battery life too. Also good for streaming as mentioned

Not powerful enough for much on it's own now, but fantastic for streaming games from a PC to if you have Steam and an NVidia card via the Moonlight Gamestreaming app from Google Play. I clock up serious hours on it this way.

I have one (gathering dust) and thats a fair evaluation actually.
It's good for SNES and earlier, workable for PS1 but poor and anything newer.
I originally bought it (for much less than this) to Remote Play my PS4 but the wifi performance is pretty bad so the experience is laggy.
It'll play some native Android 3D games but not demanding ones.

I don't reckon it's good value these days - you're effectively paying over the odds for a limited and aged controller / tablet combo when there are other options these days like the iPega 9023 (or any other) Bluetooth controller.

Strange then that reviews do not think it or other budget N3050 laptops are crap. As I said, it is not for me either, but for anyone after a new (A1 refurb) laptop rather than risking some old, power hungry laptop for doing basic computing on what is there not to like.I already stated in my description header "Hardly going to set the world alight with basic specs, but similar processor/screen models retail for around the £230 mark, so a good deal for A1 refurb in my opinion for anyone interested in a basic laptop for social media and basic productivity with decent battery life."So yes, a deal is a deal. Your own opinion on what makes a crap laptop is just simply that, your own opinion. For anyone after a low power laptop with excellent battery life to do such basic tasks on then it is an excellent deal compared to the usual £230 retail price of such.Unless of course you can post anything better for a similar price in your so called day to day job. Perhaps try posting a few of those 'deals' on here instead of lurking.

The battery is also more powerful and thus runtime will be greater. weather or not the posted box is a good deal or not very much depends on individual wishes indeed but even then if there are better and cheaper options it is not much of a deal.



Pointless trying to argue with someone that already has it in their head that a second hand 4-5 year old battered up business laptop would be more suitable for the target market, or for that matter one that gets their facts wrong. The run time is not greater, the battery will be heavier as will the laptop in question, especially considering its age. About the only fact you have right is that it is far more powerful...but once again...engage brain perhaps and understand EXACTLY WHAT THIS LAPTOP IS FOR.

For anyone that is interested instead of spending £160 on a business laptop then my advice is to be cautious on the condition and check the battery, you can end up spending a lot more getting it up to spec, involving taking the unit apart as there are many unscrupulous so called refurbishers out there, usually the ones that are not Microsoft Authorised Resellers (MAR's) and don't provide new refurbished Certificate of Authenticity (COA) Windows licences. Trusted sellers like ITZOO and Gigarefurb are two recommended ones.

Not much cop for what this particular N3050 is designed for, low power use.I never posted this deal for it to turn into a comparison with bargain business laptops, there are plenty of other deal threads for that, each of which come with various pros and cautionary cons.

Ordered, thanks!

Saw this in Morgan's email. Not voting either way, but think it's a lot of money for pretty old technology.

To put it in perspective, I purchased a Dell 7559 with 4K touchscreen, i7-6700HQ, 1TB HDD, 128GB SSD and 4GB Nvidia GT960M, illuminated keyboard, Win 10 Pro, with 3 years next business day on-site, certified refurbished (but new) for £619 quite recently.

OK, without a time machine, we can't go back to past deals, but we can sure look out for them in the future.

£606 for a refurbished. No thanks.

8570W!! Quite high wattage for a laptop oO

I'll get me coat...

I'm not convinced that this is a great deal. A Quadro K1000M is quite old and not even as fast as a GTX 950M and the Core I7 is only 3rd generation, even though it is quad core.

Do they replace the HDD on a refurb or just scrub it? If it's just scrubbed then we've no idea how much use it has had. That would make it a bad deal as I wouldn't want to take on a used 3 year old HDD. Even if it has been replaced, I'd say it was marginal.

I don't really know who this will appeal to. It's not a gaming machine with that graphics card and it's over-specced and over-priced for a basic office/internet laptop. It's also quite heavy.

It's not cold for the spec at the price, but I can't quite bring myself to vote hot either.

I know its a cheap tablet and it would be wrong to expect it to perform as one costing between 5 and 10 times as much - yes you get what you pay for but as long as it is not abused it should last for about 3 years and if it doesn't the Consumer Rights Act will come to the rescue.

The official limit was 4GB if you believe apple. This was increased to 8GB around the Snow Leopard/Lion days if I remember rightly, but one of the newer OS version after that then started allowing 16GB providing you have the latest EFI update from Apple.

You can even stick in higher speed RAM in one of the bay's, but at least one stick needs to be PC3-8500 for it to boot, otherwise you'll just be met with a series of beeps when attempting to POST

Exactly and there is nothing wrong at all with the CPU, specifically it's the 2011 integrated HD Graphics 2000 and dated sub system spec that bother me, that to bring it faintly up to date with a cheap graphics card for HD video work, if that matters to the customer of course, and/or perhaps a larger HD, a USB 3.0 card, a wifi card, etc, the appeal at that price wains further, perhaps. £150 seems closer to the mark, as far as I can see.

Be aware you can't easily upgrade the power supply on these ( its a 320w in the tower case versions) . They use a non-standard design. The motherboard has a non standard power plug arrangement, so also can't be changed.
So if you want to upgrade the graphics card you are limited to PCI-E powered cards only. The GTX 750TI is about the fastest you can fit.

These go for around £150 on Ebay . Often cheaper if you go for the smaller form cases - these have lower rated power supplies though..

The 8300 model also has the same non-standard power supply and motherboard arrangement, so don't go for this thinking its any better for a cheap gaming PC.
The HP pro3500 does have a standard power supply and motherboard - so is better for gaming use as you can cheaply and easily upgrade the power supply if you wish.

I tried resurrecting an old iPad 1 for my mum to use a year or so ago. It's such a shame that developers don't leave legacy versions of popular apps available to download (this may be a forced thing from Apple - I don't know) from the App Store.

Although Safari does work, it is a very frustrating and slow user experience. Much better out there for the money. You can get a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 for the same price.

With a bit of looking you can get this model and the same or slightly better spec for under £200 with relative ease without the need to do a screen replacement (I've just done a quick look and found the above options as a demo of how overpriced this is). If you're flexible then you can get a good range of alternatives such as Elitebook, Latitude or other business grade equivalents for that same sort of price range.

Just seen Morgan Computers have the Playbook on offer today only, for £25.00 including delivery. **** Use discount code BLACK99 to get it at this price **** - IamMT

If anyone is looking for a case, Amazon have a slip case for under £3 but it's an add on item. Also available from market place sellers for £3 delivered. Can this be used as a sat-nav? Just curious.

out of stock

Back in stock, but limited to one per order - no idea why I need one, but had to buy one ;-)

We've had these for the kids for years. Rarely do they see the light of day. I'd gladly sell them for £25

If you buy a refurbished item from the official manufacturer, you can … If you buy a refurbished item from the official manufacturer, you can guarantee that the item is virtually immaculate and practically 'as new', the only difference being the lack of retail packaging. That's the case if you buy anything from the Apple Outlet Store or a laptop from Lenovo's 'Rethink' refurbishment programme. The quality of the item is exemplary.If you buy something from a random Ebay seller with no connection to any official refurbishment programme, you have no idea what the quality is going to be like. It could be okay or it could be marked, cosmetically damaged, still faulty etc. There's no assurance as to quality.In the case of the seller you linked to, their definition of "Grade A refurbished item" is comical:"They may have minor marks to the case, small cracks, minor scuffs and marks to the screen, worn keypad/keyboard"That's not Grade A - that's used.



​agreed Dell refurbished are also superb. In fact the one I bought seemed new

I'm not saying that the seller is bad - only that refurbished means … I'm not saying that the seller is bad - only that refurbished means different things in different contexts. If you look up the details of the seller they're an IT equipment disposals and recycling company for equipment that is no longer required. I'd say there's a pretty high likelihood that given the age of the CPU and the nature of the seller, this is an used ex-corporate machine where they've given it a factory reset and quick wipe down with a cloth. I'm sure it will be fine but I doubt that it's a laptop where someone's bought it new and then simply returned it within a 14 day period because they've changed their mind.


Obviously this is not a current PC, so I would expect that it has seen some use, although there is no way of knowing how much. Still, you get a lot of laptop for the money, and the Portege range is really well built.

I am surprised about Windows 10, because I run it on the Portege R500 and the R700 with only very minor issues.

I have one of these.

It's alright, but negatives are...
Very hot and thus very noisy
Not Windows 10 compliant at all

I agree with you that their definition of Grade A seems a little strange … I agree with you that their definition of Grade A seems a little strange (ie it seems more like what other sellers would typically call Grade B) - even so, the important bit is the accuracy of any blemishes/ defects they list. If they list these innaccurately then a buyer is obviously covered by Ebay buyer protection. The seller in question has a good feedback rating and my main point was simply that this is a whole £60 cheaper than Morgan Computers price for the same item (and remember they also sell "seller refurbished" goods too)

I noticed this and it is indeed a good price, however I have never bought "seller refurbished" as the quality can vary hugely and is the reason I did not post. It might be wonderful, but be careful.

I was just about to comment 'also at IJT' as I didn't know they were the same/a related company oO

Good price but out of stock.

PVRs are dependent on the reliability of the HDD. I had a Sagem that was good for about 6 years before it died to the click of death. I've now got a BT Youview box for the past year that makes the occasional scratching sounds. It's a great little box but does makes me cringe and wonder how long it will last.

I'd go as far as to say no freeview recorder is 100% reliable. All seem to have reports of "missed" recordings or other problems.

Besides all that I don't think you read and understood what I originally said, which was The processor is about as powerful as an 2nd gen I3 2370M.

There is very little difference between the results in those test on the page you linked too. They are "about" the same.

Sadly benchmarking isn't a most category victories is best situation (it's not a popularity contest). These 2 processors are pretty similar in overall performance. Very little between them and no real person would be able to work out which is which from a double blind test without of using bench testing like that website has been presenting or actually checking which is which.

@Chocka - That's a fairer representation of what I got. A2 suggests they've actually seen some action, which both of the ones I received clearly had. Anything sold/described as A1 ought to look pristine. Still, I'm not unhappy with the purchase.

Morgan now describe them as in A2 condition.

I agree @Tunner but I wouldn't describe either of the pair I got yesterday as 'A1' - they have clearly got dints and marks of previous handling and use all around the edge of the devices. To me A1 really means you can't tell them from new - with the obvious exception that the seller did say that the port covers were no longer on the tablets. That minor gripe aside, I'm impressed with them both... so far.
