Perhaps, but not necessarily.
Sometimes refurbished laptops may even be better than a brand new laptop. That is certainly the case as it relates to affordability.
Some people equate the word refurbished to be used or second hand with the end result of buying cheap laptops. This is not necessarily the case.
For example, think about the match of refurbished cars. I asked a friend of mine what type of refurbished car he would be happy with.
- 1967 Chevy Impala, two-door hardtop, or convertible
- 1963 AC Cobra, Hi-Potential Engine
- 1964 – 1967 AC Cobra, 427 Cubic inch engine
If having the latest greatest technology is what you want, then a refurbished computer may not be your best answer. A refurbished laptop is more than enough for those living paycheck to paycheck.
This brings us back to our original question of refurbished models compared to new.
My answer, for the most part would be yes for several reasons.
It is not the unit that needs to be in question but rather where that equipment was refurbished at.
*** Guarantee ***
Companies that provide refurbished computers would benefit greatly from providing a guarantee with their equipment. A number of them do.
Why is this so important?
Because a guarantee, even a 90 day guarantee, lets the buyer know that the company is willing to stand behind the product that they bringing to the market. Therefore, if support becomes necessary with the purchase the customer can know they are covered. Finding yourself without a warranty or guarantee is reason enough to not consider a refurbished device. Should trouble arise the only thing you can do is buy new equipment.
*** Affordability ***
This was something we addressed earlier. I'd say that if a refurbished laptop purchase is being considered, this one element can be the determining factor.
Logically, a used computer costs much less than a new one with the exact same features. If the budget is the issue then be sure to consider the advantages of refurbished as long as they carry the guarantee I just talked about. Even better if they offer an extended warranty of some sort, generally speaking I avoid such options but not with refurbished computers.
*** Value ***
Affordability positions a refurbished device into more features than what can be found for the same price on brand new units.
It really depends on what you need most. It is quite possible for you to just secure the basic necessities at a much lower cost than new, or if your pocket book will handle it you can get more value for less.
The bottom line here is that you have options that are opened up and made available which are not necessarily present in a brand new device because of the issues of expense.
*** Excellence ***
Is it really possible for the words refurbished laptop and excellence to coexist within the same sentence?
Again it depends on the person or company providing the unit. However, it would be my own belief that those who want to receive referrals and future business for their endeavors are going to do whatever they can to get people talking about their work. Therefore, providing units that are "not-up-to-speed" would be a tremendous disservice to their own selves.
Companies that take this approach to business will do all they can to produce high quality products
*** Summing It Up ***
I call this my GAVE approach because I GAVE myself a break while I GAVE myself the technology I needed within the refurbished laptops that I purchase. You work hard and deserve a break too. Its time you GAVE yourself that, right?
