A few weeks ago I saw the G3 here for $700 and decided it was a bit more than I needed for audio work. So I looked up G2s -refurb Windows 7 vintage with DVD and found a one-off refurb from a very honest eBay seller that had 24 GB memory, 512GB SSD and 1 terabyte standard drive, new OEM battery and Charger for $350 with free shipping, Windows 10 pro. Works fine with my older Adobe (non subscription) products but might be great for the brand-new latest. Lots of options on these, so hard to make direct comparisons between my G2 and this one. But a definite feel of professional use with these bigger, heavier units.
