    Found refurbished laptops everywhere for a while.
    Some of them were HP Elitebook 8440p, 8460p, 8470p, Ultrabook 9470m. Dell E6430. Lenovo Thinkpad 430 etc etc..
    Well those were their best laptops 3 4 years back but are they worth buying at 2017.
    Whether it's used one or refurbished one..???

    I bought HP Elitebook 8470w a month ago. It's definitely worth it! Mine has Core i7 3rd generation, 12 GB ram, 320GB HDD (I am not keen on space) and an AMD FirePro M2000. These laptops are mobile workstation (A.K.A Mini powerful PC) and you can upgrade almost anything. Screen is good to 15.6 inch (1600x900). Since these are not 2017 laptops. They include plenty of ports type options and a DVD drive :p

    Also I had two completely opposite experiences with refurbished products. I had poor experience with Samsung S5 (Refurbished) and great experience with this laptop...

    To buy a refurbished laptop take two things into consideration, why is it refurbished? Is it because of manufacturing defect and company fixed it as they could not sell as is or second hand sold to company and got refurbished. Also second take into consideration price with year. Generally (seeing we are in 2017) a 2015/2016 laptop with good specs work well. Anything less then 2015 is not worth buying unless ofcourse it is Apple MacBook which will last forever and ever unlike Windows that just kills the laptops.

    I last year bought a open box(someone used it and returned it for a better deal) windows laptop. I have a macbook but need a windows laptop for many things Mac does not support or is less user friendly to do. My specs are i7 12GB ram with 1tb hdd and 2GB Nvidia 940 I guess.
