Well I have searched the site and under contact us it only comes up with that gmail address. Too dodgy for me

Looks like a one armed 5 year old designed their website.

I agree they are not particularly an attractive proposition to give my money to.

I wouldn't deal with them either

I concur

The laptopworldShop is hosted by GroovyCart Ltd

the address and telephone number is just for the Site Host .. not the shop/seller

Surely under distance selling regulations you must provide an address and telephone number?

Couldn't you just buy on a credit card and if anything goes wrong you're covered?

I'm tempted to buy all 4 and see what happens!!

well the U130 is a very recently released product, on this site claims to be reduced from £115. i don't think anyone with right mind would refurbish a product which is selling for £150 minumum refubished for half of that.
