Yes, that does look rather an ignorant comment unless you know something about Samsung's China factory the rest of do not?
Actually it seems (irrespective of which country the factory is located in) that Samsung has the best reputation for DDR3 and DDR4
http://www.pcgamer.com/ram-makers-samsung-makes-the-best-dram-chips/
Which is not surprising as Hynix and Micron are usually far behind them and there aren't many (any?) other DRAM manufacturers left.

Well, I'm running the Android 5.1.1 no problem on the Nexus 2012. I found it sluggish on the kit Kat 4.4.4. So I upgraded to Lolipop, then followed some advice from here.

Cleared the cache, uninstalled the google launcher updates and disabled auto update on play, disabled text to speech and other unnecessary apps, and it's running very responsively compared to 4.4.4. Delighted with the wee tablet for £20

That's a first gen i5 processor which is 1 year newer than my X200 and being honest wholesale/spares units about the going rate. Not saying it's a bad deal, just that I'm frustrated with SCC/SCH having decided to up their prices.

What I'm pointing out here is not that you didn't get a good deal, more than SCH trade have moved the boundaries. I picked up a B grade 8440p for £140 in August 2013. A short time later after I picked up that bargain (it still had 6months warranty) they upped the price to £168 so an increase of £28. The prices now vary in the last few weeks between £168 and £192 despite the fact that the hardware is another 3 years older since the price has increased. I check the pages nearly daily and have yet to see a single machine in their 'grade B' range to be cheaper than what I picked up 3 years ago.

Interestingly I'm unaware of any computers of note in the last 20 years that have appreciated in value as the curve is generally towards the dropping in value. This is the crux of my point that SCH have lost their way being a good value supplier to now just being average as I can get similar deals in about a dozen different suppliers with some cases being better listed to know what you are going to get. It's why I've not purchased from them in 3 years despite a number of successive purchases before that time and why I encourage others to consider buying elsewhere.
Edited by: "Astec123" 5th Aug 2016

I started buying from them in 2012 and never got such bargains, I paid more than that for a X61 (in 2012 though). My invoices on my account only start in 2013 as I think I bought the first few without creating an account, the first invoiced one is a X200 in Q3 2013 for £71.25. It was missing a key from the keyboard and had a crack in the case that was impossible to fix without epoxying it quite a bit. My dad still uses it daily! (I did replace the missing key)

I still think these are good value but personally I've always got excellent batteries (all HP machines with > 90% design capacity remaining) from the machines bought from SCCTrade.

They've got a few Elitebook 2560p/8460p machines for 88 quid, also some X201 and X220 machines for 88 quid too - woohoo! Must resist... I have enough already... sure what would I use them for...

I'm not so convinced, while it's a pretty a reasonable deal given the specs, it's a lot of risk to buy given that you have to get the PSU and risk it being a complete dud on arrival as they are sold as such with no helpful information. If you just purchased a 2570p it would be at from 2012 so now 4 years old.

I picked up an X200 in Q1 2013 which released in Q3 2008 as below (missing only a hard disk and otherwise in pretty much unused condition) so 4 years and 6 months old. The missing hard drive is one key way with SCH/SCC to get a machine that's isn't a wreck, otherwise you really just take a big risk.

Those sorts of deals were a regular feature on SCH trade but now there are very few unmissable deals from them which is a big shame considering how many items I'd purchased from them.

E6400 could be Vista or Win 7 depending on what the company (probably a big corporate) who originally bought them requested. Could also be any version of the OS, again depending on what was specified from home (unlikely to be this though) , to premium, to pro to ultimate. From memory the laptops had about a 12 to 15 month cycle as being available from Dell, so also depends when it was ordered as what it could be stickered with. We have a lot with Vista as we were running XP and so downgraded, They were pretty much all replaced by the time we went to W7 as a company.

The follow on E6410 was released as Win 7 came out so is likely to be a W7 sticker, and would be really uncommon to have a Vista sticker)

I took a punt on another grade c as the code is working. Just paid £60 delivered for a hp 6930p elitebook 4 GB ram , core 2 duo, fingerprint reader, 3g, dvd rw, missing hdd. Added an old ssd and works perfectly. Was a risk but paid off this time.
Seems there are no major issues, typing on it as we speak.

for those interested got my grade c t400 2.53gz this morning only 3 minor faults 5 faded keys (tho unimportant who doesnt know the keybored layout), missing hard drive cover (£2 or so), and 2 out of the 3 damaged usb port (could always move the cpu one of my other machines to fix the usb posts, tho really one usb is enough), + points not listed fingerprint chip / scanner fully working + webcam fully working and the 4gb is only 1 dimm so cheaper than uausl upgrade to 8gb

Not only that, but I suspect the X200 SATA bus itself is limited to … Not only that, but I suspect the X200 SATA bus itself is limited to 1.5Gbps. Consequently, it will be completely saturated by the speed offered by a "slow" Kingston.

Okay, I should put an order in, then!!

Mind you, this thread says differently http://forum.notebookreview.com/lenovo/444659-sata-150-specs-new-x200-s-t400-s-laptops-today.html

And here: forums.lenovo.com/t5/…rue "I own a Lenovo X200, and I just put an X25-m in it. he SATA interface showed a 3.0 Gbps link, unlike the drive which came with the X200 which showed a 1.5 Gbps link. (Note that due to the way SATA transmits data, using 10 bits per byte for redundancy, 1.5Gbps translates to 150Mbps, which would match the lower speed reported in the original post.) A quick test with sequential reads gave me a read speed of 200MB/s."

Got mine on Friday - well built metallic frame - better than i expected - hardly any scuffs on the machine. There was a small hardly noticeable dent on the body but you have to look very close. Windows 7 Pro 64 bit key under the battery - had an old HP charger at home so plugged and installed. All the drivers can be found in the HP website. Fully charged - the battery lasts just shy of 4 hours. Pre installed with 4gb RAM, installed another 4gb and the machine flies. Great value for £160 - much better than netbooks and cheap new laptops!

Got one of these the other week, bought a good charger on amazon for £15. Comes with a Win 7 Pro key under the battery. Well built laptop!

No, there aren't any rules about warranties, but it's simply better for everyone if very important information on an item is included in the deal description, and a laptop having less than 2 Months warranty is a very important bit of info...

How about I post a seemingly great deal for a car, but fail to mention the small print states it comes with no wheels, would that be OK? There's no rules saying I have to include whether it has wheels or not, but I'd be a bit of a git for not putting it in the deal info.

Almost all deals I see posted for refurb items state the warranty, because pretty much everyone knows it's better to include it.
Those that fail to mention it are normally trying to avoid cold votes...
What about no power adapter being included? What about it hacving no OS? Why do you think he opted out of including that info? Because he knew it would result in less heat.
The problem most people will not click on the deal link and check the small print before voting hot or cold, they will vote based on the information by the poster, so in order for people to judge a deal they need to given any info that could sway their decision either way.
We should post to help people, not deceive them.

The main goal of this site is to find great deals for people, not to see how hot you can make your own deal go by neglecting to include relevant information.

While I mainly blame Nvidia for the fiasco, the fact that those DV6000s were so poorly designed didn't help.

DV6000 and DV9000 are notorious yes. I've seen very few that have survived, in fact I rarely see them now, people must have got all the reflows they could out of them and have moved on.

Nah....power supply £15...windows will be free thanks to the sticker that will be underneath the laptop, just obtain an iso, and activate by phone
Had 2 laptops from this place grade b...both good as new, obviously that's not a certainty though.

Actually decided to not go through checkout with this now, so should be available.
Reason being is although it's an i7 CPU, it's a very old one, so lacks any of the improved "Intel HD" graphichs, not even HD2000 and the CPU is roughly as fast as a moder i5 mobile variant so not worth the money.
