Would you buy a refurbished computer or tablet? Why or why not?
They are a lot cheaper, but I have to wonder if buying new is the only thing that makes sense with electronics of that nature. They seem to become obsolete so fast, but I also wonder if they can be refurbished to like new condition, and thus save me lots of money.
It depends on where I would buy it. As long as it comes with the same manufacturer or dealer warranty, then I would. I buy refurbished electronics most of the time, because they are cheaper. Haven't had an issue yet (that wasn't covered by warranty).
I would buy a refurbish desk top because I can test it, look inside it, check out the makers of the sound card, video card, etc. see how much dust has accumulated and if the fans are working properly.
I would buy a refurbish notebook if it came from a reliable company and was probably one that was just returned because the person wanted something else.
I do not think I would buy a refurbish tablet--never used one so I do not know enough abut them.

Whats the difference between the two New/Refurbished other than price? Would you feel comfortable buying refurbished hardware if it was refurbished by the factory with a warranty?
