Refurbished Used Laptop Computer
Although I am not very fond of the idea of buying used laptops, due to a personal dissatisfaction, some of you perceive it as a cheap and reliable solution for a limited budget and as consequence this article will be dedicate to mostly used and refurbished items. There's no doubt that besides the economical fact, there is an ecological one, that some companies to stop: some users prefer to work on an old item, until it cannot boot anymore.
One of the online stores dedicated to used laptops is named suggestively usedlaptops.com. If you haven't visited yet, you won't regret spending some time browsing and probably, in the end you will even place an order. On usedlaptops.com you will find laptops designed by HP, IBM, Dell or Toshiba, unfortunately the list isn't generous and the warranty offered is limited just to 3 months, but this fact is replaced by mostly affordable costs, since items are estimated between $150 and $750.
As you could imagine the cheapest used laptops are estimated under $200, but they don't offer not even a medium performance in the terms of today's vogues. For instance, IBM ThinkPad T40 ($175), one of the oldies, is based on an Intel Pentium M processor, 512MB RAM, 40GB HDD, ATI Radeon Fire GL V3200 graphics, CD/DVD drive, 14.1-inch display and Windows XP Home Edition. I bet you will turn towards a tablet running even 1GB RAM module, since the prices are almost similar.
Better notebooks will cost you even $450, although the last cost is quite exorbitant even for an used item, since most factory refurbished laptops are estimated at the price. In order to prove my assumption, take a look at Dell Latitude E4300, running an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB DDR3, 160GB HDD, DVD rewriter, 13.3-inch display and Windows Vista Business.
