This is the best laptop I can find that's reasonably priced. I don't play games so I don't need a very powerful GPU. Problem is that I can only find it refurbished. I can get a refurbished one for $1095 on eBay and the only place I can find them brand new is through HP directly for $1925. That's an $830 difference. Is it worth it?

Eh you could go cheaper even if you were a gamer, what are you looking to do?

Is this something for CAD? Photoshop? Video editing? then yeah something like this is okay for that but again you could go cheaper.

For gaming most definitely, plenty of low budget gaming laptops especially now there are laptops with ryzens

But if you are just using your machine for YouTube, netflix and browsing you could just get a chromebook for that or a $300+ laptop

 

remember "best" is subjective depending on your need and sometimes high priced devices are not always the best.

You could spend $6000 and it still may be overpowered or underpowered for your needs.

I usually get Lenovo. But it seems like the keyboard can easily have defects. I don't know why but it's been my experience for the past 2 laptops I bought.

I am not convinced on using an HP laptop for work and gaming, I'm not really a fan of their mousepad which is close to the keyboard. In my own opinion, Asus laptops for me are the best for gaming. This is the gaming laptop that I have now. The laptop I use casually and for work is an ASUS ZenBook 3 UX390UA. 

 

But if you're already content with your laptop, You can upgrade it if its expandable.
