We tracked three laptops on eBay costing between £200 and £215, all three from a popular eBay reseller. They are all refurbished, carry a six-month warranty, may have minor signs of use and, due to very nature of the deal, stocks are limited.
Other than their surprising affordability, one reason why we'd choose such a laptop over a more expensive one is that they are very often better built and have more accessories as well. Note that they all come with 4GB of RAM, a 14.1in display (with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution), Windows Vista Business 32bit OS and a 1TB hard disk drive.
The cheapest of these deals is the Dell Latitude D630 laptop (pictured above), which costs £200 and comes with 200 Nectar points. It runs on a first generation Core processor, the T7250, one which has two core and clocked at 2GHz. Other features include Wi-Fi, four USB ports, a DVD drive, VGA, Serial, PCMCIA and Firewire connectors.
Next on the list is a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 laptop which costs £210 and has a Core 2 Duo T7100 dual-core Intel processor, one which is clocked at 1.8GHz. The rest of the product specs include three USB ports, a DVD writer, VGA, Firewire, PCMCIA and a Fingerprint reader.
Last but not least is the more expensive Dell Latitude E6400 laptop. It is slightly more expensive at £215 but comes with a slightly more powerful processor, an Intel Core 2 Dup P8400 model clocked at 2.26GHz, four USB port, Wi-Fi, VGA, Firewire, PCMCIA and an eSATA port.
