Check it thoroughly. I've had multiple argos refurbs - at least every other one has been sent back. I could be unlucky but I suspect the refurb process is as intensive as a wipe down, rebox and fresh install of windows.

Very very tempted.. as a present for my dad.. windows 8 is putting me of though ..

actual resolution: Resolution 1366 x 768 pixels.

Could anyone post the spec please as I can't access ebay
Thanks in advance

Terrible specs and terrible build quality - we have a couple of these in at work. However, it is an excellent price.

Terrible spec and build quality? What? Read the reviews!! Great laptop and price just smashed everything else in this range.

I've just said that we have some in where I work. I don't need to read other people's opinions, I have used them myself and formed my own.

if it's such a great laptop why so many has been returned->refurbished?

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Toshiba-Satellite-C850-1LX-Notebook.91804.0.htmlSounds not too bad, still on the fence though



So from that link which you provide this laptop is better then: Dell Vostro 2520,Samsung Serie 3 355E5C-S02DE,Acer Aspire V5-551-64454G50Makk, Asus F55A-SX099D.

Damn good Laptop, also I know the sound quality is great. For £169.99 it's a bargain!!!

Better at some things according to netbookchecker yes.. I agree, at under £200 this seems a great price .. it's just the windows 8 that's making me hesitate

great price considering argos have other C850's with lower spec for round about the £200 mark...wonder why?

£170 aint bad but Argos refurbs are RUBBISH

Windows 8 shouldn't put you off. It's not as bad as the internet wants you to believe.

I've had two off them. The first was an Asos which packed up after a week and the other is the Toshiba C855 which is running fine and is a good laptop.

Just add Classic Shell to Windows 8, improves it no end.

Really good value. Already spent my computer budget on a £100 smartphone including the SD micro memory card.
Prefer £20 mobile phone for 'phone facility'.

I purchased one of the Dell's that was a refurb and I got a new sealed laptop. I imagine they may do the same for this one

Bought one, didn't really need it but couldn't resist ........ Damn HUKD's blows my money yet again

Thank you, build quality is the most important aspect of a laptop for me.

Build quality yes I agree, most Toshibas have poor build quality.

This is £169 and the B830 is more than capable of multi tasking, the specs for £169 are really damn good for this price. The B830 is based on Sandybridge core, it has nothing to do with Celeron's of old. I'm using a Compaq CQ58 with B830 to type this now. I can open many many browser tabs and applications at once and it doesn't slow to a crawl. The B830 is powerful enough for general users and then some.

I have to post this on every deal because people see Celeron and just don't understand.

This deal is HOT!

Yup no reason not to get Windows 8, more features, quick operation, 8.1 a FREE major update is coming this year. I don't actually think you need Classic Shell. I never have it installed but it's good for people who require a start menu.

It depends whether you can utilise the CPU power and RAM, most general users won't use it. If you're just doing web browsing and getting emails, even this C850 is overkill, yes even the laptop in this deal for £169 is overkill for what I described above. Windows 8 is nothing to be scared of (did Adam Ant say that once?)

It's a fact bigger numbers sell computers, max out this laptop by just using it generally, you won't be able to, so you've got no chance of maxing out the B950 or getting near to using 6GB, at least 2GB of that 6GB will not be used by a general user, if not more.
