    Used/refurbished laptop site

    Hi, I am looking to purchase a new/used/refurbished laptop of the net for under/around £200. Would prefer to buy off a company that provides a warranty as my previous laptop was bought from an individual and it didn't last as long as i would of wanted (though i don't believe it was knowingly sold faulty). Have looked on ebay and bigpockets.co.uk but would like to have a better idea of whats out there. Was just wondering if anybody on here has any sites/companies they'd like to recommend, any help greatly appreciated!

    I dealt with BigPockets when purchasing an older HP laptop (can't remember what it was) - it started after faults after the second day and they were quick to pick it up & refund me via their call logging system...it's a bit odd (as they don't have a number) but the call logging system at least shows you the progress involved with getting the necessary actions done.

    Haven't used eBay UK in ages (stayed clear after a major problem with a seller) but generally as long as the seller has a good established reputation, you should be pretty covered - of course it may have changed a bit since I've used it last.

    If your considering dealing with Laptops Direct you might want to watch out for them, as a few other members have previously had issues with after-care support - can't find the threads about them but at least one guy had a nightmare of a time getting his money back after they picked up his faulty laptop, which was meant to have been quality control tested; if I remember correctly it had apparently came pre-populated with licensed apps but also data files from the previous owner as well! lol

    Yeah think my best bet is probably going to be a reputable seller on ebay, providing there's a warranty offered...

    IF the OP went for this one, there is the potential of cashback via Quidco or TopCashBack but also I think there was a few discount codes on the go for PC World as well.
