As PC makers and retailers clear out their inventory to make way for next-gen laptops, now is the time to nab a good-as-new laptop on the cheap. Besides discounts on factory fresh notebooks, we're also seeing fantastic markdowns on open box and refurbished laptops.

If you're on a budget, a good refurbished laptop deal nets you a steep discount on even the priciest machines. Unlike open box deals, refurbished deals are returned to the manufacturer for repair and re-instated to like new condition.

Generally speaking, refurbished or "renewed" laptops are reconditioned to look, perform, and even smell like new. 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.
