Question about Refurbished Laptop
I want to get a laptop, but the only ones in my price range are the refurbished ones from walmart online.

Are these ok to buy? What exactly does "refurbished" mean?

Thank you.

Re: Question about Refurbished Laptop
refurbished means someone sent them a non functioning unit and they repaired it somehow.

Its a crapshoot, I see refurbs sometimes as being better because someone hand went over the unit instead of a machine just doing it. But it was used, so ymmv.

Usually a return item..Sometimes no problem, but sometimes they still do not work correctly. Make sure you get a warranty to return if it does not work..

Just make sure you back up any important data/downloads onto an external HD, so if your laptop goes pear-shaped you won't be crying into your cornflakes.

Your not even buying it at BestBuy, it comes from a third party reseller. This means that you will basicly pay too much since BestBuy also wants it share.

Go on eBay or craigslist and find yourself a nice 2nd hand Lenovo. Do some research on the Lenovo Thinkpads, they are the best you can get.

The one I'm on now is a second hand samsung notebook. 10 inch screen. It cost me 63 quid (probably about 100 bucks in your funny money), and it's one of the best computers I've had, in my opinion. Portable, and great for ewetube. No DVD drive on it, though, but that's ok, because I don't watch 'em.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30943034


I took advice from posters here and bought a refurbished Lenovo 400T Thinkpad laptop.

I got it from TigerDirect.com, it was corporate off-lease, they had provided them to their work force and then upgraded and taken them all back and sold them to the refurbisher.

It had the operating system I wanted, Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, and 4 GB of RAM.

the operating system is a reason to buy refurbished! Because new computers come with Windows 8 now, which I have heard you don't want.

I did buy a warranty for this thing, I have never done that before.

Anyway it's perfect, I love it. Kind of heavy but otherwise great.

I also chose this particular one because it didn't have a web cam.

Computer was 300.00 and 2 year warranty was 100.00. maybe I shouldn't have bought the warranty, or only got one year, but I did. I think it came with a 3 or 6 month warranty.

Now after this I bought a Lenovo desk top, same deal corporate off lease, same operating system, but that one came provided with a one year warranty. It was only 180.00, love it.

I did a lot of research. Newegg has a section for what to look for in laptop specs, what is most important and why, I took notes, I compared different ones.

They come and go so if you don't see what you want keep checking back. Also if you do see what you want you should jump on it.

Netbook, notebook, tablet, chromebook......I do not understand what any of these are. I just want a laptop.

All I want to do is surf the internet and watch videos on youtube and glp too.....
 Quoting: Lisa*Lisa



A netbook is a laptop computer with a screen size between 8 & 11 inches. They have a smaller processor & solid state or flash hard drive than a full sized laptop. Most do not have a DVD or CD drive.

A notebook and a laptop are generally interchangeable terms

These are portable computers with screen sizes between 13 and 17 inches. They have an operating system (win 7, win 8, Mac OS) and can have advanced graphic cards and DVD / CD drives.

A tablet is a touch screen computer like an Ipad or windows surface. They have a tablet OS and use apps.

A chrome book is a computer designed to use google chrome as your OS it is designed to be used while connected to internet. You use apps, google docs and cloud storage.

As to your original question. I have bought refurbished PCs and GPS units. I have had no problem with either.

Got a netbook for travel, WARNING, THE ARE TINY ! People are selling them in droves cause they dont want them anymore and they have no DVD.
if you like to feel youre typing into a kid sized laptop go ahead. I gave mine to a kid.

Pad computers, not for the serious typist. Maybe people buy them to sit on the john watching porn. I dont know. Good for people on the sales floor,or job site,

Laptops or PCs are the way to go if you like forum blogging or if you do graphic art and run software or gaming and yes get windows 7. No one I know likes windows 8. And yes, listen to the people, dont buy a computer from Walmart unless you want such a low processor and memory.
