Arrow Urrrmmmm..... Whats that???

I am going to buy This laptop

http://www.superwarehouse.com/Fujits...021/ps/1495598

It has all the spec i'd need and looks good to, But its a tad more expensive than i'd like.

I have a link to a website that will sell me it for just under 450 which im happy with but they tell me it is [[ Condition-Refurbished]], and i dont know wat that is, can anyone explain??

At one point in it's life it broke, but they repaired it. Check to see if it has any warranty, there's always a chance it could be a lemon, otherwise it's fine.

From wikipedia:
Quote:
Computers and laptops that are refurbished usually means that it did not initially pass quality standards of the manufacturer. They then fix or recertify the unit and sell it at a discount price (Up to 30% off). Most of them carry a 30 day store warranty and 90 days with manufacturer.
Don't listen to either of them. Refurbished items are checked to make sure they work properly before they're sold. WindowsXP probably just ordered a bad computer...

I would get it. You save a lot of money that way.

Ya refurbished items are alright. They were fixed they didn't come off the line perfect the first time. If your looking on good deals check out Ecost.com Go to the bargain section. Really great deals I bought a HP printer/ Digital Camera package off them refurbed for way less than stuff in the stores plus there service is great. I recieved it in 2 days! I almost bought a labtop from them a few months ago. They have some really good deals.

For reference its been almost 1 and 1/2 years since I bought the combo and they both work fine to this day.
