Does this come with office?

I got one yesterday and it's petty damn good for the price

No only 1 month trial office 365

'Refurbished' for £239.99 on the Argos eBay as well.

IMO these are just damaged box items as the one I bought looked brand new, still had the original seal and none of the usual refurb stickers etc apart from 'managers special' on the box. 12 month warranty as well.

I've had a lot of Argos refurb laptops - not one has been an 'open box' return, although ymmv. All have been very very well presented, however none seemed to have been given more than a cursory factory restore, power on check. Again ymmv and you can always return them.

got one yesterday. smashing looking machine and very light toi compared to my last Toshiba of 10 years. also has dvd drive. not always present these days. cant wait to get to grips with it

Other than the color and brand name, doesn't seem to be much between these two.

I used to sell Tosh refurb (not for Argos) and have to say quality went very downhill in last few years! I used to buy them for me/friends and family but that was as I could have it on test for days.
I honeslty would not touch one now.
I know you get same warranty etc but you have the hassle to return it, normally collect and return, the amount of time they were returned with no fault found even though I saw the faults customers showed.
Really worth paying the extra for extra piece of mind.

I received one in white for Christmas. Really happy with it. Don't play games so it does all I need.

DON'T BUY ONE!

It is truly the worst laptop I have ever come accross. Completely had it by 13 months old. Took apart to try and fix, absolutely shockingly made.

Save up another £120+ and get a good laptop. These things may seem cheap short term, but they do not last, and are slow as buggery in general anyway.

Was thinking this looked like a good deal but one of argos's reviews states the battery is non replaceable. I presume this means it can't be taken out, not good if like my parents you use the computer plugged in to a power source 99% of the time. I always recommend they remove the battery to extend the battery life.

I'd like to know the answer of this question too

Had mine just over a month now and everything is fine. Got it when it was £279.99 last time. Immediately removed McAfee and Office 365 and put on AVG and Office 2010. Does the job it is needed for and the kids are happy as it plays Sims 4 fine.

Bought one at £279 for xmas pressie, brand new , not refurb.. on first half dozen uses track pad failed so returned for refund.. maybe a one of , but have seen other reviews complaining of same.

I'm no techie, but I would say that firstly, are you happy with a refurb rather than new? Secondly, how will you mainly use it, on battery or plugged into the mains? And thirdly, the price.

So the bottom line is, it's your choice/decision. And hopefully, my wife's 'new' refurbed i3 3110M will arrive tomorrow and we'll see what cosmetic condition it's in.

Thank you so much SupaTramp. I don't have an issue with the Refurb but I just can't make up my mind!
