Frequently asked Questions about refurbished laptops


Why buy a refurbished laptop rather than a cheap new laptop?

1. When our refurbished laptops were brand new, most cost £2000 - some cost more than £2500. This means you get the very best in build quality and long product life - as we are still selling them now! Compared to the current crop of £300 laptops available at high street stores, refurbished laptops represent better value for money!

So for Cost Versus Value/Build Quality compared with whats currently on the market today brand new at the similar price range- these refurbished laptops are in a league above and much better value.

2. When these refurbished laptops were brand new, the manufacturers never comprimised on quality versus cost - thus meaning you got the very best quality refurbished laptop money could buy, constructed using the highest quality components and a clear and distinct design to detail, not seen in new machines of today.

5. Our refurbished laptops with Pentium 2/Pentium 3/Pentium 4/M processors/Core 2 DUO, Core i5, Core i7, - that now,
out perform the newer entry level processors seen on many new cheap laptops nowadays. As the Pentium 3/4/M mobile processors have a built in numeric processor AND new CELERON M based laptops don't, so the older processors generally perform better.

What are refurbished laptops and what does 'Grade A' mean?

All our refurbished laptop components including screen, optical drives including CD, DVD, or CDRW/DVD, hard disk drive, ports, etc have been checked and an array of tests has been conducted to ensure the laptop is in complete working order, before its delivered to you. We run a 24 hour burn cycle and this means leaving the laptop powered on 24 hours, so you get total peace of mind when you receive the item.

Our range of laptops have been completely manufacturer refurbished and professionally cleaned - this means than the manufacturer has undertaken the testing process fully - ensuring you get the highest standard of quality in the laptop.

'Grade A' is a classification awarded to a refurbished laptop - when the following comprehensive criteria has been undertaken :

1. The laptop has been fully and professionally refurbished by the original manufacturer and tested in accordance to guidelines adopted worldwide by the industry,

2. The laptop has no major scratches/dents/broken plastics and it is in the best condition possible for a pre-owned item.

Customers should realise these are pre-owned used laptops have marks on them, which are to be expected and battery life wont be as good as new or even wont be there at all. If customers do want good battery life, please contact us before ordering and we can supply a new battery with the laptop at optional extra cost,

3. The laptop has been fully data cleaned and wiped,
