You can get a brand new computer for so cheap nowadays that there is no sense buying a referbed one....especially if all you want to do is "browse the internet"

Do you want to be talked out of it? Sounds like a wise decision to me. Refurbs are almost guaranteed to be tested better than new ones.

You can buy a new laptop for Best Buy right now for less than $300.

The real Greg Maddux wouldn't buy refurbed anything.

I want a Lenovo again. Lasted 6 years through a whole lot of usage. A decent amount of Porn. Nothing crazy.

Refurbs are a good deal. I've bought two items from NewEgg and no problems at all.

This. There was a good thread about this on Reddit a few weeks ago. Many units are not tested before shipment so there will be lemons. For a company to make any money on a refurbished unit they have to test it. Refurbished is the way to go.

I assume factory refurb, which would have a warranty. I don't see a problem with that but what is the price difference versus new?

How much did you save going with a refurb?

I guess I'm not going to get an answer about these awesome refurb deals and all the money saved. I know the answer, just wanted to see how deep the shite got.

I bought a ViewSonic 21-inch monitor from NewEgg for $89 with free shipping. I figure I saved $70 or more over a comparable new monitor. This is a heavy-duty monitor with a height adjustment, 360-degree rotation, a weighted base, and built-in speakers. You can hardly find one like it any more.

My business partner has had a Thinkpad (IBM badged) for around 8 years. He finally decided to get something else. He bought a refurbed Lenova about 6 weeks ago, added a SSD once he received and couldn't be happier.

Now it has only been a short time but so far it is performing flawlessly.

I find that windows laptops only work for so long. I feel that I refurb may reduce that time.

Also, make sure it has a new battery.
