Product as decribed. Morgan Service = A1 and fast,
Based in France, this is our 3rd fully-satisfactory order/delivery from Morgan. The laptop is as described/advertised, properly 'cleaned out', checked and including a battery still in good condition. Delivery, as in the past, to continental Europe, was relatively cheap and very quick @ 3 working days from order. In our experience, no other UK-based, on-line tech consumer products (new or refurbished) supplier comes close to matching that track record with us.
Excellent machine, in good refurbed condition at a great price,
I can whole heartedly recommend these compact, light and powerful machines to anyone looking for a reliable, fast, portable laptop for work and home use. I agree with other reviewers; at this price, for what you are getting and in the condition that they are in - it's a "no brainer"! Thanks Morgan
Brilliant little machine, excellent customer service,
Can't praise more, it's a great, little machine, light, but powerful and fast like a wind. Great for office use at home and about and good for watching films as well. It has all 'bits' necessary, USB ports (including USB 3), Ethernet port, DVD/CD optical drive and many other useful ports which some manufacturers don't build in laptops anymore. The screen is very good, the keyboard is fine, mouse pad sensitive but not ridiculously, can't find anything wrong and considering the price it's no brainer. Very happy with it. The customer service excellent, the courier dropped the package through 6 foot fence when were weren't at home (despite telling them that we would be out) and it was replaced on the next day. Will get back to Morgan computers again in the future.
Great value, if slightly tired,
Great little machine, arrived quickly, well packaged. It's quick, light & reliable. Screen not the best, but it's good enough for most things. Battery life holding up well too - it's good for 4 hours moderate use, better than expected. Niggles? sound qualiity very poor, but that's not important to me. WiDi didn't work on arrival - looks like a driver problem common across many Toshibas so I've decided to live with this, and the base of the machine looks very tired - scratched & a bit bashed, one of the rubber feet is missing, the windows sticker has nearly peeled off etc - but it's the base, so hey... All in all it's great value and we're really pleased; together with Morgan's great service it's a no brainer!
Excellent, Excellent and Excellent again!,
This machine was delivered in less than 24 hours from ordering and came solidly packed with good protection. The condition of the exterior casing and internal keyboard components was excellent with no visible wear, scratches or even fingerprints!!! Bear in mind this is a 13.6 inch screen so the casing is slightly smaller than standard 14 inch laptop. It is everything that is claimed and is a superb little machine and extremely fast in comparison with my 2 tower self-built PC's and Medion Laptop. I submitted the Portege R930 to health and viability checks and it passed all tests with flying colours as expected. I am more than pleased with this wonderful machine and as an ex IT manager can honestly say that, in my opinion, this is value. The operating system came with Windows 7 Pro with the ability to upgrade to Windows 10. I will be staying with Windows 7 as a personal preference. Excellent and highly recommended. Look for IJT vouchers and you may even get more of a discount than that being currently offered. I managed to buy it at £290.
If you are looking for a laptop and have a budget of £400 then this really is a no brainer. Looked almost new apart from a faint scratch on the top of the case. I installed Windows 10 straight away and it is fast, much faster then my old HP Spectre (which cost 3 times as much but had an unfortunate liaison with a vase full of water), build quality is excellent: feels rock solid without being too heavy, not too much in the way of bloatware and the matt screen is great to look at. I did some test video and photo editing and was very pleased with the results, no lag at all. The DVD drive is a plus and the keyboard feels nice to type on.
Excellent Laptop - and brilliant value,
8 GB RAM , I7 and SSD make it very fast and fully functional. It upgraded to Windows 10 and has been by far my fastest computer. Very happy. The track mouse works well and it even has space for a DVD drive and yet it's a lightweight package and feels it will last. I was worried that the battery might be short lasting as it's a refurbished machine but it lasts 6 hours :¬) I'm very happy :¬)
Pluses and minuses,
I've bought several reconditioned laptops from Morgans, but this is the first which has both negatives as well as positives. Firstly the positives - arrived promptly, high performance, light and fully featured; Windows 7 Pro, which I prefer to Windows 8 or 10. Would be better if the DVD drive read Blu-Ray, but I suppose we can't have everything. The negatives - battery completely flat, which isn't good for Lithiums; more physical wear and tear than I'm used to; and the "Touch Screen" advertised in their mail order booklet, isn't. Keyboard has a slightly "dead flesh" feel, but if that means it's a bit waterproof, then I can live with it.
a really good choice,
I bought this for my daughter she was thrilled with how lightweight and well made it is and it boots in seconds.
Pleased with the product and the service received. Well worth the money.
Superb value for money,
This has got to be one of the best deals currently available, - anywhere! Blisteringly fast, I have loaded it with all my main software programs and am now starting to use it more than my main pc! It arrived with not a scratch and after a quick phone call to Morgan re a bluetooth driver which was quickly sorted, I am now also using this laptop to drive all my media and my television. Well done Morgan!
The laptop turned up as expected, when I switched it on nothing happened as the battery was flat. However after charging it up it ran very, very fast. It is lovely machine, couldn't ask for more. Peter
Excellent Machine - Eventually,
My 3rd Portege. Usually Toshiba are rock solid, unfortunately it took 3 attempts to get a good one! 1st machine seemed fine, except the "F" key didn't work. 2nd Machine had the left mouse button stuck down. I gave it a 3rd attempt & glad I did excellent fast machine ideal for Photoshop which is my main use. Morgan throughout were nothing less than excellent swapping the machine by return with no quibble would certainly use again. I have upgraded the Laptop to Windows 10 & that all went smoothly, it's fully supported by Toshiba so no issues with drivers etc. I will probably upgrade the SSD to a larger model at some point which should be easy enough as access panel in base. Memory slots are fully populated with 4GB SODIMM in each so any memory UG would be a swap out
I did a lot of research on laptops with the intent of buying a new machine on Black Friday. I'm very pleased that I bought the Toshiba Portege from Morgans, in place of the 'offers' available on Black Friday. Boot up is virtually instant & the machine is lightening fast ,outperforming my Dell business laptop. Bluetooth connections are good with a keyboard & screen resolution is excellent. I'm guessing the machine is 3 years old , so I am replacing the SSD as a precaution. Apart from one minor scratch on case , which it took me 2 days to notice , the machine is a good as new. Recommended.
Nifty little machine,
I love this stunning light-weight laptop. It's fast, the SSD can easily be changed for a bigger one and an upgrade to Windows 10 is done within minutes. Hardly any marks of pre-usage and the battery is still top-notch. Kudos to Morgan Computers!
Just the job,
Excellent PC and easy to upgrade the SSD if required, as I did.
Very impressed with rapid dispatch and delivery, mine arrived within 36 hours of ordering albeit with a faulty trackpad. Without quibble a replacement was sent out next working day but this time to the incorrect address. Given these problems I had lost confidence and requested a refund which was dealt with quickly and efficiently. The laptop itself was quick, very portable and although obviously preowned in reasonable condition. I can't be certain but the version of Windows 7 supplied appeared to be upgradeable to windows 10 for free. Having sent mine back I was unable to find a replacement of a similar spec at anywhere close to the price of this. With hindsight I suspect I was unlucky and had the laptop sent to me not had the trackpad fault it would have been very good value for money. Although I was unhappy at the time, Morgan Computers did everything they could to remedy my dissatisfaction with professionalism and integrity, for that I am grateful and give a neutral 3 stars.
Another gold star for Morgan!,
Once more I have a terrific deal from Morgan. This Portégé is exactly as I hoped and exactly as was promised. The i7 chip coupled with the SSD makes it a really fast and responsive piece of kit. It was straightforward to upgrade to Windows 10 and the SSD is plenty big enough for what I bought this for and the price was perfect. When I take it out to show someone something I just have to smile. Thanks again, Morgan!
What a great little machine. Once I had updated the drivers every thing just works and it works well. I do a lot of work with MS-Publisher using plenty of graphics and this machine doesn't slow down.
Better Than Expected!!,
This is the 1st major purchase I`ve made from Morgans and it certainly won`t be my last!Having previously bought memory and USB sticks from them I`ve always looked at other items for sale and wondered how good these laptops could be for being refurbished models.Let me tell you they are absolutely spot on,brilliant in fact!I ordered my Toshiba 930 late on Sunday evening and it was delivered ahead of time on Tuesday morning.The machine was almost brand new with no marks or scuffs on the laptop body,screen or keyboard and included a new generic charger.I booted it up and found everything to be perfect...Windows 7 pre-installed and it had about 3/4 of battery power.Being an i7 model and having a 128gb ssd it performs extremely well although I`ve since replaced the 128 with a 500gb ssd for a bit extra space.No complaints with the service I received or the product...top class and highly reccomended,Well done Morgan Computers...I`ll be back!
