What does refurbished mean?
There are several types of laptops that fall into this category, but all have
one thing in common: they are laptops that have been purchased by someone else.
“Purchased” is the key, as it does not mean that the laptop was necessarily used
by the previous owner. Yes, more than 80% of have been used by the previous
owner (and returned within 30 days of purchase), but many also come from
companies seeking to liquidate current inventory. The common thing with a
refurbished laptop is that by law – whether used by the previous owner, or not –
all previous information must be wiped clean, the laptop must run through
testing to make sure all components meet industry standards and are working
properly, and that any problems be fixed before the laptop can be resold.
