Hey Mike! Any good Dell deals About or coming?!

Cheers

I think this has already been posted. Bought one on the previous post and am going to be taking it back tomorrow to get a refund as it came with the following faults

1/ Battery does not charge when the laptop is being used, only when the power is off
2/ The cover for the letter E came off the first time it was pressed
3/ Stick pixel on the screen

I phoned up Currys 'support line' and was told

1/ the battery not charging was possibly a safety feature!! I've worked in IT for 12 years and used many different laptops and have never heard of this safety feature!
2/ they would take it back for repair and if it wasn't deemed to be customer misuse they would repair it. If the tech dicided it was misuse the repair would be chargeable!!
3/ I didn't mention the pixel as it is within the iso limits

So following that I decided to return it for a refund and get a new one rather than a refurb.

The guy on the 'support line' did comment that it was a Packard Bell so it wasn't surprising it didn't work right!! found that amusing

If you get one that works right then it should be a great laptop but be prepared to check it over fully when it arrives
