Don't Waste Money Buying New Laptops

If you are looking for a good laptop but don't have the funds to buy one then why not start looking for refurbished laptops. Like I already explained in my previous post, cheap refurbished laptops are as good as new laptops. To read that post click here.

In this post I'll try to explain why refurbished laptops are better than new ones and that you should not waste money buying new ones when the same model can be found as a refurbished. Now lets talk about some of the reasons why you should prefer refurbished laptops over new laptops:

Cheap Refurbished laptops :


One of the biggest reasons why you should consider buying a refurbished laptop is the price. refurbished laptops are extremely cheap. In most cases, you are looking at getting at least 50% off the price that you would have to pay if you bought the laptop brand new. Here I would like to emphasize yet again that a refurbished laptop does not mean that it has bee discarded or is defective. A refurbished laptop is one that has been repaired by the manufacturing company themselves. While in most cases the refurbished laptops may as well be a canceled order from the company store.

Better Specifications:

Suppose you have only $400 to buy a laptop. In this budget you can either get an entry level new laptop that has only the bare minimums and may be equipped with a weak celeron processor or you can get a heavily equipped laptop with a powerful dual core processor for the same price. So by buying a refurbished laptop you actually get the best specifications for the lowest price.


Another misconception people have about refurbished laptops is that they are without any warranty and therefore buying such machines is a risk. This is wrong. All of the refurbished laptops today come with a 6 month warranty period. Provided this is half as compared to the 1 year warranty that comes with new machines but 6 months is more than enough to determine the stability of a machine. If your laptop works for 6 months without any problems then most probably it will not have any problems in the future as well. So while buying a refurbished machine make sure that you get the 6 month warranty period.
