Sony :: Refurbished Notebooks

Nov 23, 2009

Wondering about those of you who had experience with the Sony Refurb notebooks. My understanding is that they are basically new old model, but come with only 90 days warranty.

THAT is the factor that scares me - the 90 day warranty as Sony repair is very expensive out of warranty.

Anyone comment on the risk vs the reduced price?

Jan 20, 2010

I am planning to buy Vaio Z540NCB. I checked its specs on the internet and found them pretty good. However there is a problem. The shop from where I am buying this laptop is not an authorized Sony dealer. The shop owner says the laptop is brand new. And it looks new too. However a friend of mine says that its a refurbished laptop.

how exactly I can find out if the laptop is brand new or refurbished..........

Sony :: Maximum RAM With GL960 In Notebooks

Jun 14, 2009

I know many people have said they upgraded their ram past the "2gb limit" to 3gb or some even 4gb on a Intel GL960 chipset...but has anyone successfully upgraded their ram above 2gb with the GL960 on a Sony Vaio, or even more specifically the VGN-NR140E, or any VGN model? I'm asking because I want to upgrade past the limit, but I don't want to waste my money if it won't work, and if someone can let me know if it worked on their Sony Vaio (should have similiar BIOS) then I will be a bit more confident on my purchase.

I have a SV Notebook PCG-7D1M which has completely died on me!! I heard somewhere that if a battery is dead or not inserted in a Vaio it will not work at all. Please can someone confirm this for me as at first i thought it was my power supply so bought a new adaptor but it still wont work with or without the battery in.

Sony :: IR Remote Control On Vaio Notebooks

Jul 15, 2009

None of the Vaio notebooks have IR Remote Control which I feel is very useful and has become standard since long in notebooks of other manufacturers, still I have not found anyone complaining about it in this forum. Does no one here miss the lack of it in their Vaios?

Dell :: How Old Can A Refurbished Be

May 7, 2009

I just bought a Dell XPS M1330 refurbished laptop. I know they have a 21 day return policy, so I figured it couldn't of been used more than 21 days by a customer. But after I looked at the specs I noticed the processor Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7500 is pretty old and is no longer offered for the M1330. So now I am wondering how old this unit could really be. I wouldn't want to buy a refurbished unit if it's been used for like 6 months or longer.

Apple :: Refurbished MBP 2.4 Or 2.53

Aug 17, 2009

My old dell 860o died on me 2 months ago. been searching for something light and can do some gaming. Wonder if there are any video card issues like the previous generation.

So far nothing beats the mbp for the size. is mbp 5.5 lbs? so it seems the refurb is down to some decent pricing. is the 2.53 worth 150 dollars more? which is lower heat? is the 2.4 a p8600? just want to know a few tidbits of the laptops.

Apple :: Refurbished 2.53/2.8 MBP Or New 2.66 MBP

May 29, 2009

Just wondering your thoughts on the following dilemma. I can get my hands on a refurbished 2.53 or 2.8GHz Unibody MBP through a special promotion. The prices are 1239 or 1439 respectively. Alternatively I am going through Heathrow Tax Free soon and will be able to get a brand new 2.66GHz MBP for about 1490.

So what do you think? Brand new or refurbed? And which of the two refurbs to go for? Did the recent processor bump (2.53--->2.66) bring any other changes that I would miss?

Holding off until WWDC may cost me the cheaper deal as the promotion is strictly while stocks last.

Apple :: Refurbished MBA (Rev A) Vs UMB

Jun 30, 2009

I've decided to permanently park my 15" MBP on my desk, connected to an external monitor, speakers, keyboard mouse etc and use it as my torrent / wireless print server, and buy a smaller mac to replace it.

I only used the MBP for safari, itunes, messenger, office apps, and watching movies on the go.

I have spotted a first gen Macbook Air 1.6 ghz and a unibody MB 2.0 ghz for $1099 Canadian in the refurbished store. I think this is a pretty good price for either one and I get the full 1 year warantee with the option of extending it.

The MB seems ideal, but I wouldn't mind having the Air as well. I remember the first gen Air had all sorts of problems. Do you think Apple fixed the problems in this particular unit before putting it back up for sale?

Dell :: Refurbished M4400

Jul 8, 2009

I'm looking to replace a 3-year old IBM X60s that recently failed.

I'm considering a refurbished M4400 from Dell Outlet, and I have a couple of questions:

1.) How is Dell Outlet service and what quality can I expect from them? I know from Lenovo Outlet, most of the refurbished items are actually in immaculate condition. Is that the case for Dell Outlet? Is customer service and shipping times good?

2.) When browsing through the available M4400s, I see listings for both 15.4" WXGA and 15.4" WXGA LED. Are there M4400s with CCFL backlit WXGA panels? When configuring a new one, the only option for WXGA is LED.

And any other comments, advice, warnings, etc,

Dell :: (refurbished) E1705

Aug 12, 2007

I bought my system from Dell about right at 3 years ago. I got an Inspiron 9100 with 3 years of CC for around $1700

P4 2.8 with HT Prescott
512 MB RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 64 MB
15 inch crappy screen
40GB 5400RPM HDD
CDR/RW DVD drive

They replaced my computer with an e1705

Core 2 Duo 1.73 T5300
2 GB DDR2-667 RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon x1400 256MB
17 inch WXGA Samsung
8xDVDRW drive
80GB 5400 RPM HDD

I was shocked that I got upgraded so much. Then I started reading some of the reviews of the x1400 and it was terrible. I benchmarked this computer and the graphics did a little better then my old system. I played some of the games that i usually played on my older computer and they ran a lot worse on this computer. I don't know if i should complain about the graphics card, since they did give me a huge upgrade and all.

Also, does anyone know about how they work their warranties. When i got this system and registered it on their website it said that i had three years of CC warranty left. Then when the warranty went dead on my other computer so did the warranty on my new one! If I knew that was going to happen i would had bought the extended warranty before it went dead.

I'm considering to buy a factory refurbished HP DV7-2177, as I saw many people saying that factory refurbished ones are as good as a new one.

Apple :: Refurbished MBP 15"

Nov 15, 2009

I am looking to purchase a 15" MBP from apples refurb page. The model I am looking at is the Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. From what I can figure out, this may be last years unibody mb470 with the removable 4 hour battery. This unit also lists the dual video 9400m and 9600m gt. This is important to me and honestly it is the 1,299.00 price that is leaning me to this machine. I think the 13" may meet my needs just fine except for some layout work I do. But, with a 13" I am inclined to wait for the next refresh because the price of the current 13" may come down, or I may like the new i7 processor,(or whatever the new processor ends up being in there), and buy that. But with the 15", I want the 9600gt video and would not be able to afford the normal 1999.00 price point. So waiting would not help me get what I want/afford.

The one thing I can not figure out is if the 2.4GHz is in fact a Mb470 that includes an express card 34. It looks like it does in the picture but I can not find any test line that says this is included. I was wondering if someone has experience with Apple refurbished and knows if this unit includes the express card. I know in the new model this has been replaced with the sg card slot.....................
