I got another Dell AOI with HD. Upgraded the SSD. Job's a good'un. (y)
Why is someone looking at a budget pc worried about running Windows 11. You will be able to carry on using windows 10 for half a decade still.
this is a great deal but had to send the 4 we bought for WFH employees back as when i set it up it was just obvious how painfully slow these are compared to what we are used to. The main issue is the fact that these contain normal drives rather than SSDs. (me being stupid, i forgot to check befor ebuying) I could not inflict such pain on our employees so these are returning but would be fine for browsing / general tasks.
You dont always need the latest Windows version. I am running Windows 10 1507 (lstb release 2015) with no issues for office, video editing and photoshop. This version is security supported until 2025.
You're largely correct, but computers do suffer hardware failures.

I think it is pretty clear from the live comments in here that this isn't the case. We remove comments that are offtopic, such as feedback on the way we make money - and in that case you should have received a link to the right place to discuss it - in case you weren't, it's here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/discussions/pepper-what-is-it-and-how-does-it-work-3306602 But feedback on the deals - either through politely expressed comments (ie no swearing) or votes is completely fine, and one of the main features of the site!
it appears that any disagreement on this post is removed
The pre-discount prices are ludirous, the discounted prices are ridiculous
48FOR48 has expired yesterday and we got a working code exclusively for us until 6 pm. I am really disappointed that many of you are feeling it that way.
haha and shipped from sunny Swindon via the best courier in the world or so they would like you to think Fedex

ExclusiveGrade A Refurbished Dell Latitude E5470 14" Laptop - i5-6300U / 8GB RAM / 256GB SSD / W10 Pro / 1080p - £221.60 With Code @ Dell Refurbished£221.60
Ditto - I bought two and they are in mint condition - would have bought more had I known.
I got a very small scratch on the screen on the laptop I received and got some bleed on the left side of my screen, tint of blue and yellow coming through, anyone else got anything similar?
Was thinking about this too incase anything were to go wrong
How do I copy the recovery image to USB? Tech support non existant - not a good start.
There isn’t half some twaddle in these comments. This is much better than anything you’ll buy new for the same price, and being much more expensive when new will likely long outlive them too. I’ve got a Latitude from 2012 that’s still fine along with a HP from 2011 for travelling. As for not being able to get batteries... wtf? (lol) You can still get batteries for a HP nx6110 released in 2005!

I don't, there is plenty of reputable refurb selling small companies. The little guys get hurt on disputes and returns, the extra mile is there.
code expired edit: the prices are now lower. So they were inflated for the code. Not a genuine 48% exclusive code.
i get promo code expired message
warranty is 180 days, not 3 years...
Actually these are fairly good prices, buying these models used off eBay would cost around the same (or mor for the Gen 8's), also fact you'll get a 3 year warranty with these is pretty awesome. Don't confuse these with cheap ASUS etc, Optiplex are business class machines and built like tanks, with features such as vPro, they can also take 64GB RAM each... That why I brought 5 of the 7040 i7 models last year, I use them as home servers, used from eBay they cost £300-400 each off eBay..
For gaming, this card is about the same as a mobile GTX 1050.
I still run a Dell Precision M4800 i7-49XX 32gb.... I can run multiple VMs using KVM. It is still going strong.... Not sure the benchmarks against new chips, certainly consuming much more power being old gen chip.... I think this is a great deal (depending on the type of workload/requirements for this machine)....perfect desktop replacement. I believe a desktop replacement mobile workstation second hand with more up to date chip will be ~£1K
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-i7-7820HQ-vs-AMD-Ryzen-7-4800U/2952vs3721 CPU is a bit old these days.
7th Gen i7 ( Q variant too? ) and a Quadro for GFX...not a gaming rig at all but high workplace spec yeah... Nice bezels BTW, very 2016
Thanks for your feedback guys. I was planning to buy this and needed opinion from gadget experts. I was impressed with the price and config so added this deal here.

No, the graphics are integrated (uses the main system memory) so can't be upgraded. A graphics upgrade will only be needed if you want to play high end 3d games. More basic games and other applications run fine. PS. I just bought another 8Gb of RAM off ebay for £22.99 which is identical to what was in my machine. Seller had 2 to sell so there is another one going; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SAMSUNG-8GB-PC4-2133P-DDR4-2133MHz-260-PIN-SO-DIMM-RAM-M471A1G43EB1-CPB/254829848432?hash=item3b550ae770:g:JrIAAOSwoS9f3e7l
Hi, this is really useful info as bought one of these for my daughter. Do you know if the graphics card can be upgraded at all? Thanks
These machines are also a doddle to upgrade. I just installed a second 500GB SSD I had going spare and it only took a few minutes and zero tools. The stand detaches from the back with a button press and the plastic back panel pops off when pulled, similar to some mobile phones. The blue SSD caddy is also removed and attached to the SSD without tools or screws and just clips back in. Access to the M.2 drive, processor and the memory chips can be achieved by sliding off a metal cover on the right hand side.
I was wondering the same.

Hey bud.. yes I got it today. Noticed a couple of faint scratches on the lid and a few marks on the screen. Guess that's why they label it as a refurb. Not tested the battery yet. Beast of a lappy at that price. I ended up getting a brand new Legion 5 at an amazing price. Originally was a pressie but mrs whats to keep it as the tablet function will come in use.
Hi, have you got it yet, I got mine yesterday, condition is mint. I have noticed the battery life isn't amazing though. 100% to 5% in 2.5 hours, watching youtube videos. You?
Looks like all the 5289 models have finished on the dell refurb site. They currently still have the following though: 20% Off Any Dell XPS 9360 Touch | Coupon Code: CYBERXPS The 13.3" XPS are a great machine with QHD+ touchscreen.

Dell Latitude 5289 Touch 2 in 1 (Refurb) £473.40 after code + delivery @ Dell Refurbished£478.40
Nice first post OP. I don't understand the cold votes either.
Because most follow the crowd, without even reading the title or the description.
Nice find. Great for those of us who are touch-screen fanboys..Heated. Not sure why the cold votes
This is not bad IMO, 8th gen CPU would have been much better, but for 2 in 1, 16gb ram, backlit and grade A, this is not that bad. Clearly better value some laptops with Ryzen 4000 gen, but this is a 2 in 1, touch screen. I know this will go cold, but I voted hot!
Clicked on Cnet to look at spec and down the list it says under miscellaneous compatible with Windows 7.This model is written about in PC mag August 4th 2014,im thinking surely this isnt 6 years old ? and if they had made any changes wouldnt they of changed the model number slightly with another letter added or similar ?
Indeed it fell flat I'm afraid XD
Not enough bezel for me.
The original picture that I posted for the monitor showed its back, not the screen... I've changed that now, so the joke doesn't work any more....
Don't do yourself an injustice, I just wanted to return joke for joke.
