The best refurbished laptop deals right now net you solid discounts on various configurations. Although laptop clearance deals typically offer select laptops at rock-bottom prices, here's another option. In some instances, going the refurbished route helps you save even more on a good-as-new laptop. So if you want to buy a laptop but you're feeling the squeeze, you may want to consider buying a refurb.
Unlike open box deals, refurbished or "renewed" laptops are reconditioned to look and perform like new. These machines are typically sent back to the manufacturer for repair and re-instated to like new condition. They often include all the accessories that you normally get when you buy a brand new laptop. Just about the only difference is that it may arrive in generic packaging.
