Buying a 2nd hand computer vs new

wanting to get a very basic computer for home use, i have been quoted for a good brand 2nd hand refurbished one from a computer store, are you better to go with one or buy a cheap new note book! any one had a refurbished one! how do you know what you are getting with a refurbished one!

nothing wrong with secondhand especially from a store as they should look after you better if somthing goes wrong. whay you would buy secondhand i dont really know though as new computers are fairly cheap anyway. what sort of price is the secondhand one!

$450 for a hp dv6 1222ax!

i wouldnt pay that personally for a used one. others may though. i have bought 2 refurbished computers and both look and perform exactly like new ones. so in my opinion they are all good

If you budget $200.00 & look at what is available on TM you can't really go wrong.

Wise choice. Why buy someone else's rubbish! I'd buy new, either Toshiba, or Asus. Don't get sucked into extended warranty though.You are covered for the extended time buy cga anyway (not for damage you caused though).
