3000rpm are never a better deal. Considering the shambles most other deals from them turn into it says a lot about the quality of their machines.
Possibly a better deal here http://www.3000rpm.com/acatalog/Lenovo-T420-Intel-i5-2520M-2.50Ghz-Laptop---4Gb---160Gb---Wi-Fi---Webcam---Windows-7-Pro-.html
Had two of these (i5 ones). Upgraded the RAM to 8gb and added 256gb SSD's to both and they boot up windows in seconds along with being great for just everyday computing/work. My brother even plays Civ5 on one of them. Still better suited for just browsing/work but they still run Photoshop and as long as you don't need/want a 1080p screen these are perfect.
[/quote] Really appreciate the informative reply. I have slight OCD so would not consider buying a refurb unless There was no other choice. Is that hard to find a decent 1080p laptop with a decent GPU And the option to install a SSD for around £500? I was considering the Lenovo z50-70 from John Lewis for £550 but again, the keyboard and screen are slated in reviews.[/quote] I wouldn't worry about buying a refurb as long as you get it from a reliable company. I got my current laptop (Dell Inspiron i5 6gb etc) from dell outlet 4 years ago and it is still going strong. it looked brand new and was easily half the price compared to a brand new Inspiron plus came with warranty.
Comment No I wouldn't dare think of installing a GPU on a new laptop lol. I need something with dedicated graphics to play games like Quake, FIFA and GTA - nothing too graphic-heavy as far as I'm concerned. It seems all New laptops come with rubbish keyboards, which is incredibly frustrating! I'm considering getting a MacBook At this rate cos at least there will be no issues with quality or warranty

I have the X540 and they have been AMAZING for the past 2-3 years. The X540 produces 70 watts RMS The Z506 produces 75 watts RMS So it is slightly better but most probably wouldn't tell the difference.
is this better or worse than the x540?

cant find anything on them paying return postage, from their terms.. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, including the cost of sending the item to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
I got this from Amazon just before Christmas for £214.99 and they are an excellent set of speakers. I would be a bit concerned about buying refurbed ones, but that's my general concern with any electronics - I'd rather have new and full warranty, but that's the trade off you get for getting them at this price.

Looks like these are no longer available on the site. Expired from me.
Are these any good for watching films on my laptop. Always wanted some 7.1 headphones.
Are these any good for watching films on my laptop. Always wanted some 7.1 headphones.
Could also be because of the blatant lies on both threads, these don't have multiple speakers and neither do the other ones he's selling: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/webcam-communications/internet-headsets-phones/devices/5095
Got a pair of these last week and returned them. The sound is really bad quality and tinny, so i've ordered a Razer headset instead, which will hopefully not make my games/music sound like a bag of spoons. Also note that this is USB only, so you can't just wire it in with an existing sound system, which is another downside for me since i have a surround sound system and wanted to use these with that so i could use the headset for PC, TV, PS3, etc.
Yup... still good choice
None in stock so tempted with the wired G35's great find OP :)
None in stock now :(

I have a macmini G4 1.4ghz, It's not an everyday computer but I have it hooked up to some decent speakers and use it mainly with Garageband, I got sick of trying to hackintosh and this is a pretty cheap way to dabble and decide whether you want to delve into the Apple world, you can probably get your money back on ebay if you don't like it.
Incidentally guys, the G4 mini macs where released in 2005, 7 years is old in computer terms! £100 - £150 could be better spent!
Wouldn't bother m8, If anything like my kids they like playing online flash games. Adobe stopped support for powerpc flash a while back. So issues with these type of sites will get worse. Better looking at one of the Intel models. General surfing and itunes is OK, U will find Camino or Firefox works better than the older Safari for powerpc.
I'm not asking this in a snidey or sarcastic way (as in- im not trolling, actually hoping for useful answers!) but what good is a powerpc mac these days? Its automatically a big turn-off for me not being able to upgrade to snowleopard or anything past it, but are these machines actually perfectly usable day-to-day, or noticably obsolete and crippled? Anyone know if linux on a powerpc mac is decent?! If so, perhaps these would make a great little media/file/home server for newer machines?

Agreed. Mac user here and this is really overpriced for that stopgap model. 60GB SSDs can be had for £70 these days, so definitely not worth any substantial extra on the used price. The hd in this is quite likely to be one of the earlier, slower models, too.
Maybe the fanboys see further than just the specs, maybe they see the build quality, component quality, resale value etc etc. Susan Boyle has all the 'specs' of a Woman, doesn't mean we'd like to kiss her, does it...
It's worth noting that this is a second hand machine. It's pretty much similar to my machine which I've had for about 2 years. It is NOT a Macbook Pro - it is a Macbook Unibody. i.e. No firewire connection and no SD card reader. The only difference is the 64GB SD which is quite good, but not necessarily advantageous if you, like me, store lots of media files. One last thing, Mac2sell value this at about £400 Has to be voted cold for the price (otherwise hot for the product)
Normally I'd see this as quite expensive, considering that it's a refurd. But those SSD drive don't come cheap so this is actually a good deal.
Well I have been using my Macbook Air for a month and have to say it is pretty good when compared with a PC. Use it for Excel, browsing, Word etc. but was the same on the PC. Opening after sleep is near instant rather than clunky on a PC. backlit keyboard and overall interface is better. I am not a fanboy just a normal user and can see the benefit. This seems like a good deal for a refurbished lappy if they do come in good condition. I bought mine (also used) from Ebay and was very pleased. I used to use Macs 20 years ago and the interface then was way ahead .. has moved on and is still slick.
