I have been trying to buy a laptop for home use and found this deal. I understand this is refurbished one so only has 3 months warranty. But the price for the specification seems quite decent to me.

This is my first post in hotukdeals, actually go as hard criticism as you like Knowing all the pros and cons for this deal might also actually help me make the decision whether to buy or not. Thanks to you all!

Hmm. Not sure about this one. Looking at 15inch, 256GB SSD and i5-6200U, … Hmm. Not sure about this one. Looking at 15inch, 256GB SSD and i5-6200U, we have these NEW...£480 @HP NB. 16GB RAM i5-7200U!£450 @Currys (Gold and White)£400 @EbuyerOk, so they're not FHD but some people may not need FHD.EDIT. For FHD you're probably looking at HP. e.g. £480 @Technoworld (but prices seem to be going up



You are right. The listed one has 16GB RAM and full HD. I was hoping to get enough memory for running computationally intensive simulations. Full HD also is nice for watching movies and etc.
Thanks for sharing other options.

No problem. Will update if I see anything interesting. Prices seem to be going up unfortunately. Dell outlet is popular for very good quality refurbs (with full warranty) -but expensive- and this is the other place I go to for cheaper Dells (filter is set to 12 month warranties)

would NOT buy Toshiba product and would NOT recommend.
I am on a mission to let everyone I know know that their products are not worth the money you pay - and they technical service or support is non existent (except for mostly useless automated website assistant).
When I did a bit of a research to look for a new PC it transpired that Toshiba is at the bottom of the quality and customer service rankings when it comes to PC's. I am not suprised.

My laptop broke just outside warranty, retailer does not want to know and there is no way of asking Toshiba if the life expectancy of their laptops is no more that 2 years. - unless you actually write a letter and post it to the head office address. They do not have any type of call center for UK customers any more, and hardly any authorised repair centers in UK (I found one !).
So while your Toshiba product lasts (and do not hold your breath) you are ok, when you are in trouble you are on your own with a hole in your wallet
