Why You Should Buy a Refurbished Laptop OR Desktop (New isn't always better)


"Refurbished" sounds like a dirty word to a lot of technophiles, but given the savings and hidden advantages, it's time to change your thinking.

Refurbished vs. used

There's a difference between refurbished and used. Used means a product has been used for a significant amount of time by the previous owner. If they took care of it, you'll get a significant discount on a product in reasonable condition, but they're sold as-is, meaning, if the hard drive fails after a couple of months, you either have to fix it or write it off. Even if they're "fixed up," they're still used.
A refurbished unit is one that was returned to the manufacturer or seller for some reason. They can no longer sell the unit as new, so they fix whatever was wrong (which isn't always a defect) and sell it as refurbished. There are several reasons a product could be sold as refurbished.
  • Demo/floor model units
  • Blogger/journalist review models
  • Items damaged in shipping
  • Returned (unopened) products
  • Products with opened boxes, even if the item itself is unused
  • Products with defective parts

Pros of buying refurbished

You do have to be careful buying refurbished electronics. But there are several benefits to these, even over new.
Firstly, they're between 15 and 30 percent cheaper than a brand new counterpart. That's a savings of $150 to $300 on an item that's normally $1,000. While that may not sound like much, consider what you could spend the money on otherwise (for example, those cute kitten heels you've been eyeing). The additional savings could even be enough to allow you to get a more sophisticated model than you'd normally be able to afford.
Also, products refurbished as part of a reputable program are usually less likely to have any damage or defects. Not only has the damaged part been replaced, but all other parts have been tested yet again.

How to buy refurbished

Not all refurbishment programs are created equal. Apple and Dell (among others) have received rave reviews for their refurbished electronics. When buying refurbished, look for programs with these qualities.
  • Full disclosure — A company that has quality standards will have no problem telling you what they are.
  • Certified — Refurbished products that are certified by the original manufacturer are more likely to meet stringent quality standards.
  • Warranty/Extended service agreement — A good refurbishment program has at least a 90-day manufacturer warranty on the product. Better ones have a full year. Those that offer you the option of purchasing extended service agreements (beyond the automatic warranty) show they stand behind their refurbishment process.
  • Return policy — The warranty is good, but sometimes you just change your mind. Policies of two weeks and 30 days are pretty standard, though some go as long as 90 days.
  • Everything else — The first thing to do when you get your refurbished product home is check to make sure it has everything the new model was supposed to come with unless otherwise disclaimed. Don't be alarmed if it comes with a newer version, so long as it's compatible.

What's the difference between an Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 ?

Difference ( Core i3 , Core i5 & Core i7)

Intel Core i3 Processor

This particular Intel processor is the enter level processor of this new series of Intel processors. While it may not be the fastest one of the bunch, it can get the job done, at least for most applications.
Mind you, if you need high speed, I suggest one of the other processors that I will unveil in front of your eyes later on in this post. Here’s some of the Core i3 features.
  • Uses 4 threads. Yes, it uses hyper-threading technology which is the latest craze due to its improved efficiency over earlier processors that were put on the market.
  • This processor consists of 2-4 cores, depending on which one you get your hands on.
  • Contains A 3-4 MB Cache
  • Uses less heat and energy than earlier processors, which is always a good thing in this day and age.

Intel Core i5 Processor

  • This is the mid-size processor of this bunch, recommended for those who demand a little speed, but not quite enough where the user will be running resource-intensive applications.
  • As with the Core i3 processor, this comes with 2-4 cores, the main difference is that it has a higher clock speed than the Core i3.
  • This is also a heat and energy efficient processor, but it does seem to be better at this particular job than the Core i3 processor.
  • The number of threads used in this is no different than the Core i3 with 2-4 threads, and it also uses hyper threading technology for a boost in performance.
  • The cache of the Core i5 is bigger than the Core i3, it’s at 3-8 MB.
  • The Core i5 is where the turbo mode is made available, this provides users with the opportunity to turn off a core if it’s not being utilized.

Intel Core i7 Processor

  • This is for the users that demand power, yes it does provide more power and if Tim Allen gets one of these, this would be the beast that he gets his hands on. Great for gamers and other resource intensive users. 
  • The cache on this one is 4-8 MB.
  • This processor comes with 8 threads, definitely enough to get the job done quickly, maybe even at the speed of light if you’re lucky.  And yes it also utilizes hyperthreading technology.
  • You will have four cores to take advantage of with this particular series.
  • And just like the other ones in this Intel series of processors, it is more energy efficient and produces less heat.
