If you are just starting to look for a Refurbished Laptop it can be a bit confusing at first. Before you start you should have made a brief list of the features you want in terms of memory size, hard drive capacity etc, this will help you avoid buying more than you need when you actually start shopping.
The Internet is a good tool for collecting information and narrowing the field to a few models, compared to shopping locally for a cheap laptop computer. If you have a preference as to brand a place to start is the website of the manufacturer. As an example if you want a DELL refurbished laptop go the the DELL site and review the models that they are selling. Make a note of prices, warranty terms and other information but don't buy until you check further. Next use the Internet and search for refurbished laptops. Online stores such as those on eBay are excellent sources since eBay has standards they apply to sellers, and the feedback mechanism eliminates the scam sellers of refurbished laptops.
