hope this is Refurbished ?

Refurbished - good price and reasonable spec.

Need to add REFURBISHED in the title...

Need to check Argos refurbs well but this is a far better deal than the B830 at £180 odd. Ram is overkill, I'd be tempted to flog the extra 4gb DIMM if the value is still around £20.

Is this any good for basic internet use, including youtube videos?

Yes would handily easily.

more than 200 sold brought 2 myself

Nabbed one, with the 8gb i will run a VM.

crap, cant get on ebay at work...guess i'll miss out

the processor any good?

Not the best processor and does not have an SSD, but for £200 this is an absolute bargain. Just bought one for internet browsing and using microsoft office. The only downside for me is the ethernet is megabit and not gigabit (I just upgraded my home network all to gigabit), but I will be using it mostly wireless anyway so I'm not too bothered.

You could always download the ebay app if you have an android/iphone and buy it through your phone

same I was going to buy it then thought might risk it and hold on but there will problably be a better deal tomorow lol

This is the best deal
Bought one my self,

Argos refurbish is just a damaged box, 95% of times laptop is brand new never been switched on

Got my lower spec one today.

Looked brand new - had 24 hours on the hard drive powerup time and 50 odd power cycles. Windoze 8 installed fine and I did the backups.

Then it all went wrong I rebooted and Windows froze at 15% updated. I did a short Google and it appears to be a common problem not just with Toshiba and there are ways around - it's taking its time though

i've gone for one. thanks for posting. is there an easy way to uninstall windows 8 and replace it with windows 7 though...i am dreading dealing with windows 8.

Great spec for the price, but after my mum's toshiba died after 2 years of light use I can't bring myself to get excited about anything toshiba make.

Most likely the same could be said of any brand speaking my last 3 laptops, (over the past 12 years or so ) have been dells they've all provided relatively hassle free service in that time and all still work perfectly, including my inspiron 1100.

Just went to bid after checking details on the net ...... its sold out!

my OH has a c855 which i like using. does anyone know the difference between the c850 and c855 - they seem to have the same measurements but the c850 weights slightly more.

Ordered, thanks

Hot. Ordered yesterday.

Me too!
Let`s hope we all get new Toshibas and don`t have to deal with returns.

Got mine today, it's brand new, the box is just a bit tatty .

Mine arrived today - looks like a customer return - the box has been opened, but the unit itself is immaculate with no marks at all.

meant to say lucky you I hate dictionary on my phone

Box with broken seal and manager's special sticker on the side. A4 piece of paper between screen and keyboard saying it's been refurbished. Doesn't look used, working fine so far... :-)

Mine arrived, laptop HD shows it has been powered on for 22hours and has had 20 power cycles. Power cables were wrapped in bubblewrap rather than factory packaging. But it is spotless and zero marks.

Did anybody get a manual or recovery CD with theirs? As mine didn't come with either.

Also, is there normally a plastic slot protector thing inside of the SD card slot?

Thanks

I didn't get recovery CD as I think it is backed up on the laptop and also yes there should be a ad card plastic but you can buy it cheap on amazon

Our power cable was wrapped in bubble wrap too, no manual, no recovery CD, no plastic slot protector in SD card slot.

How do you find out how long it's been powered on for etc like you mention sitalchauhan?

Use the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator application installed on the laptop to create your own Recovery DVDs.

Found the manual online on the Toshiba website.

You need to check the hard drive's SMART information to see how long the hard drive has been powered on and how many times it has been turned on. There are many free applications to read SMART information, I personally use CrystalDiskInfo

Thanks
