    Bought a Dell refurbished Latitude e7450 off Amazon last year and it came with 3yr NBD (next business day) warranty to my utter delight. Have had both the motherboard and battery replaced at home by a Dell tech. Not one issue since, and for $299 (for a $1,000 laptop) I think that's pretty good (not to mention that the warranty ends in 2019).

    I have been buying "out of box" electronics for years. This could mean many things from a scratch on exterior to refurb. make sure to deal with good seller and you save a bundle. Saved over $200 on the Dell I5 I am using now, love it. Best Buy Geek Squad Certified with full warranty + can add extra warranty at discount if wanted. You can't go wrong but timing is everything you have to SHOP. Am watching 1080p TV I got same way too. oh and forgot LG blu-ray. My social security needs to stretch and this has worked for me for years. I forgot my Klipsh surround system too..it had been returned for some reason and I had to go to a different BB location to pick it up.

    Saving 20-percent is not worth the risk given that the refurbished computer can die at almost any time; buy new and then get a SquareTrade 3-year accidental extended warranty.

    I should have said "some reason" instead of "something" when referring to the exchange of my first laptop. I forget why. I also have a 15.6" Acer Chromebook which I bought as a factory refurb for $113 from Acer on EBay. I had expected that to have an interchangeable hard drive, but they make too many models of that thing, and this one only had 16GB of memory soldered to the motherboard. I am not as happy with that, but basically I bought it to watch movies on while off-grid, and for that it is adequate. And again, I could not have touched anything nearly as good for anywhere near the price!

    I am running a publishing business ( www.cpubfl.com ) on a refurb laptop I bought from Joy Systems on Sears.com over two years ago. It is an H-P EliteBook 2560P, core i3 at 2.1 GHz, 4 Gigs of RAM, and a 128 GB SSD.The screen is smallish, but adequate, and the whole computer is easy to tote. At the time, it was retailing at $199.99, but I had a 10% discount, and I had a ton of Shop Your Way rewards points available, and got a ton more for buying this. I calculated that my net cost, with another 5% off for using my Sears card, was just about $125 plus tax. It's not a gamer, but it is more than adequate for my needs! It is a LOT faster than my Dual Xeon Server at the house. It boots in about 14 seconds from cold. The hardware is military spec for drop and water resistance, aluminum chassis, and just all in all a great computer. Wish it was a little faster, with a larger SSD, but that stuff is available, too. It came with a one-year warranty from Joy Systems, and I did exchange it for something when I first got it. It came with a brand new copy of Windows 7.1, with the free upgrade to Windows 10. i love it! And I could not have found anything near as good for anywhere near the price!

    Five words regarding why one SHOULD consider buying a refurbished notebook: exceptional value for the money. I am still running all aspects of my professional photography business every day on a SONY Vaio notebook computer I purchased seven years ago, and it hasn't failed me yet.

  • omegatalon Says:

    Two words should be why no one should consider buying a refurbished notebook, no warranty; I've told friends and family to possibly buy whatever they can from Costco as they will double your warranty and with a Costco Visa card will double that so all machines purchased come with a 4-year warranty.
