What are your opinions about purchasing refurbished laptops from TigerDirect or Newegg???

Looking for something in the $250 range for my granddaughter. She loves YouTube and playing very simple games. But I would also like to be able to use it for myself. I mostly play simple games, pay bills, basic web surfing, facebook, and email.

 

Thanks for any responses.

They typically just clean them well, stress test all components, and put them in boxes. Thats all. I suggest this laptop.

Sorry if I snap at you. I can't stand stupid for more than 5 minutes at a time.

I have been looking at the Lenovo computers. I have heard so many good reviews on them. I have never owned one. I had a Dell (never again), Acer, Toshiba and HP. No complaints with any of them except of course the DELL.

 

With the refurbished laptops, the only down side that I have heard anybody complain about was the battery not charging very well, but I would think that would be an easy fix, just buy a new battery. I had to buy one for my Toshiba, and I got it for about $30 and it works great.

 

Thank you for your suggestion.
