Refurbished Laptops - Frequently Asked Questions

Sunday, July 4, 2010 Posted by Faraz Khan
Even though refurbished laptops appear to be the best option available a lot of people still think it is risky to buy one or they have a large number of misconceptions regarding refurbished models. Through this post I will try to clear up some of those misunderstandings and will try to answer the most frequently asked questions.

  • What is laptop refurbishing? And How is a Laptop Refurbished? : Simply repairing a defective laptop does not make it refurbished. A laptop will have to go through a number of stages of repair and quality control before it can be placed back in the marked. I have already explained the method of refurbishing step by step in a previous post.
  • Do We get a Warranty With a Refurbished Laptop: Nowadays all refurbished laptops come with a minimum warranty of 6 months. 6 months is more than enough to determine if your machine is defective or not. If a laptop does not show any defects in 6 months then most probably it never will. However extended warranties of up to 2 years, for the used laptops, can be purchased from the laptop manufacturers.
  • Are Used Laptops And Refurbished laptops the Same? : No, like I have explained in my posts time and time again, a used laptop is NOT a refurbished laptop. A refurbished laptop is that which has been checked and repaired by the laptop manufacturers, it is then packaged as new and sent to the market to be sold. A refurbished laptop can be compared to a new laptop. A used laptop on the other hand is simply a second hand laptop.
  • Are There Any Other Advantages to Buying Refurbished Laptops? : The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. To read about them you should check out my other posts, I have already discussed all of this in detail. Click here to check out my other posts.
