cheaper here and new


Sorry, but the one you posted is inferior spec-wise. Intel Pentium vs an 8th Gen Quad-Core i5. 4GB Memory vs 4GB + 16GB Memory.


If I’m incorrect about this let me know, but isn’t a HDD the weak point in a refurb computer? How do you refurb a hard disk drive (something more than just deleting its files)? If the answer is you can’t, then you are buying it with all the mileage on it, and since it is mechanical, its life is limited. I don’t think that I’d buy a refurb that didn’t have or include an SDD.

SSD’s have write limits, do they not? Hard drives last a really long time. I can’t remember the last ancient laptop that I tossed that didn’t still have a working HDD – you know, until I hit it with the hammer.

It’s cheap and easy to replace with a SSD or another hard drive. Both form factors require a diligent backup solution.

That said, the display is kind of a fail. Low res for the size, and non-IPS.

Everything has limits. It’s just a matter of when it is reached.

YMMV, but for my current usage, it’ll take me about 118 years to hit the warranty limits on the SSD in my desktop.
