Found 2nd Apr 2017
went over 200 degrees a couple of months ago at £129.99, now at £59.99.

Seems a good price for a back up machine or something for the kids etc.

Not buying myself, but thought it may be useful for others....

Laptop is brand new but it only works when charger is plugged in ! Please consider this before

I have just noticed that says only work when charger is plugged in, so not as great a deal. New batteries can be purchased separately by the looks of the ebay page.

Still not too bad though

Bit of a weird issue to have so many laptops that only work when charged in?

HOT

My laptop is always plugged in with the battery removed
I bought a tablet from them for £30, it was a brick in an hour, just kept bluescreening.
When I was returning it they woudl only communicate outside of ebay messaging and were insisting on collecting the item instead of me posting it back - it seemed suspicious so returned it via post as ebay told me to and the return was fine, though I am concerned what would have happened had I not done that
Might make a good Kodi machine, should play 4k ok
How much is a brand new battery?
£36
I'm pretty sure that they would simply replace the battery and sell it for a lot more if that was the only issue
Any ideas on how easy to upgrade the ram n HDD? Can't find any pics of base.
Any link to new battery?
How much space will be left on this after windows 10. Sorry not used windows for nearly a decade. But was thinking for photo shop etc or windows apps

Not really worth them spending time and money on putting batteries in all these 'new' units as the gain would be minimum if at all. Not to mention they have to pay someone to do that.
brand new battery you can get for £20 or less

Few medion laptops have same model

good price for what it is

None of the links work
Check out the the 3rd link for the replacement batteries on the listing, it gives a Michael Jackson 404 error X)
Anyone tried a cheeky lower offer?

They probably wont reply in time so I didn't bother. A few were accepted previously but that's before the price dropped again.

​I tried £54 but it was automatically rejected
As somebody stated here already - how simple just to replace the battery.
It strikes me that there is more than an 'only works when plugged in issue'.

I bet buying a new battery would not solve the issue.

But what do I know?
The 2 ebay links for batterys are not suitable. This needs a clevo w310 battery.

£56.77 Was declined
No guarantee it's a faulty/old battery; could be the charging circuit.

Seems very strange to have so many with precisely the same fault.
£20 postage!!!

So basically they've put best offer on so it gets shown in more searches but have no intention of accepting any lower offer.

Pet peeve of mine when sellers do that, petty I know but it annoys me.

£60 isn't a massive amount but it's only got a 3 month warranty plus I'd have to spend our for a battery if I actually wanted it to be portable.
New with fault??? That's a new one oO
I'm waiting for them to be OOS so I'm no longer tempted. Already spent 100's on a Superdry sale today and bought a tablet last week and another yesterday! Bank account is being rinsed
By "SSD" do they mean MMC, the same stuff that comes in the awful cheap Windows tablets?

Without a doubt. Will still be faster than a spinny disk though.
Buy a 10" netbook (running windows) on Ebay for similar money. Fully working lots of storage space. Dual core atom. 2-4 gigs of ram etc. Voted cold
An awful computer at a belting price Hot!
So now even faulty laptops are becoming hot deals? Too many just seeing the title and clicking hot.

If it was just the battery that was faulty it would be a simple swap and the laptops would be much easier to sell.
Working with Dell laptops, if a laptop has this issue and swapping in a known good battery doesn't work, then likely it is the charging circuits on the motherboard that have failed - that requires a motherboard replacement, which on a cheap laptop is an instant write off in terms of costs. That is more likely the issue that would prompt selling like this. the laptop will work when plugged in with the charger, but try to use it off power and it will die instantly.

I'm wondering why you need Windows? If you can't use Photoshop that means you're on Linux/Unix as Windows and OSX support Photoshop. I guess you've tried GIMP and either don't like it or you can't get the plugins you require in GIMP? Also windows apps will run virtually on Linux/Unix maybe there's a performance issue for you from the emulation?
Would this be good for gaming?, probably a stupid question but just wanting to know

This will be about 7 times faster than one of those awful dual core atoms! Avoid them like the plague, they are slow slow slow
