Looking to buy a laptop with Intel Centrino Mobile Technology for my duaghter who has just started university, where can i get the best value, seen the laptop PC world were advertising on TV which was refurbished, went to the local store to buy one and they were sold out, and they are not comming back.
You could have a look here click here do read carefully though they do do refurbished as well as new ones also click here and perhaps click here as well as click here just some ideas to get you started.
Morgans do a few nice ones. Personally I wouldn't buy a refurbished laptop. You don't know how much use they have had and the warranty is normally 3 or 6 months. I'd rather spend a bit more and get the full years warranty.
I can't advise on laptops myself I could only provide the links as I don't know much about them but I'm sure some of the others will advise.
Ok. "wjrt" I think Bike-it is looking for laptops under £450 and maybe an extra £50 is too much? I know you require one with Centrino Technology but AMD's Mobile Turion processor is the equivelant to Centrino and the one I'm recommending has a 1.8Ghz chip, your requested 512mb RAM, 80Gb HDD (20Gb over your requirments) and 64mb Shared Graphics which would be fine for normal Home Office, Photo Editing Applications all for an Excellent £399, click here
Yes, thats absolutely correct. they sell as a concept they term 'grade 2'. as they refurb fujitsu siemens laptops and pc's back to the manufacturers exact specification and as good as brand new quality!
i did a bit of research before i used them, their site provides a lot of info about 'what is grade 2'. the main benefit though are considerably attractive prices.
i was sceptical about quality at first, as I used to only buy brand new, but the quality of my first 2 purchases eradicated this from my mind all together. no issues as at all for me
