Bought one of these, that are supposedly A1 graded, which by their own words means "as new". I didn't even manage to get through windows setup before the fan started to fail spectacularly, which brings into question whether they even test the "refurbished" systems they're selling, let alone refurbish them. Either that or they have extraordinarily low quality assurance standards. Have submitted a return request, will see where it goes from here. I would strongly urge avoiding this deal for the time being. Update: Still waiting for them to even action my return request, most likely gonna have to repair the laptop myself. Their customer support is the worst I have ever dealt with, they were faster to send me an email about upgrading to their extended warranty than they were to actually honour said warranty. Hopefully this will save someone a lot of time and money, especially someone without the knowledge to do laptop repairs for them self, as you'll receive no support from this company seemingly after they have your money.
How does it compare to this? https://m.dell.com/h5/m/r/outlet.euro.dell.com/Online/SecondaryInventorySearch.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukdfh1&l=en&s=dfh&sign=PXhcOSHtr1T4IOw%2fPR7UdZ0jsxLIYYQPtYdzE3kIzoZhFQHnt9CcKvjDVZyW2NyHQbIjGNG4aJrXv20%2bKD2SCOd5d6rYGbRBiXiUj5WTCdXakTjPNpuLjHP93tAE%2beds%2fxBCg1HrazEUCSiTROdb3%2bVvOA2d7m4RCadehu40R80%2fyMd5h8fZpOqnZcBnC4CS9er2bcx6DsuyEx4qYA9C17bh9yHXeGEma%2bn2pErnA5s6qsfhz%2f23lg%3d%3d
Mine came yesterday too, great machine. Does your capslock key occasionally flash when starting up then the computer doesn't boot? I've flashed a BIOS update over it this morning but can't test extensively because I'm at work. Also when in tablet mode if I tilt the device it sounds like the fan starts groaning.
Came today can't fault
