Usually when you see a laptop marked as refurbished anywhere be it in a physical shop or on an online store, you usually get discouraged to make that purchase. But should you be discouraged? Are these laptops worth investing in?
The short answer is that they are definitely worth it. HP is well known for their refurbished laptops. Refurbished laptops are basically new laptops that had been returned by their previous customers because they had found a defect in the laptop. That owner was given a replacement; whereas, the defective laptop was fixed and then repackaged and then it is being sold anew.
The only difference now is that the same laptop that would have cost you about $800 would cost you about $500. The same great deal of entertainment laptop available at the price of a budget laptop. This is the best bargain that you can ever imagine.
So are refurbished laptops defective in any way? No way, as mentioned before, the defect that was found by the original owner has been fixed. This is one caveat, the warranty, instead of being a 1 years, is not reduced to only 3 months. So people are willing to take that risk because of the awesome deal that you can get.
The money that you save, you can then invest it on a great PC monitor as well as on other accessories like wireless keyboard, mouse, hard disk, bag, sleeve, headsets, mouse pads etc.
Do I recommend refurbished laptops? absolutely. There is no reason not too. When you see the deal that you can get with such laptops, you too will be convinced. If you are worried about them getting damaged, well rest assured that it all depends upon how you use it. That is the case with all laptops. If you use them properly, they can last for quite long. However, if you use them and abuse them, their life can be very short.
