Is it ok to buy a refurbished laptop? My friend wanted to buy her own laptop but her budget is still short for a brand new. Now she’s tempted to buy a refurbished laptop since the price is good enough for her. I cannot suggest or give my opinion since I’m not knowledgeable when it comes to electronics and gadgets so I told her to check on forums and review sites before she grabs the offer. Oh well, I hope she’ll be able to study and think it over many times before she let go of her hard earned money.
