Is buying a refurbished Mac outside of Apple a good idea?
So, my current laptop is on the its way out and I'm looking to convert to a Mac, but trying to maintain a budget. I found some reburbished MacBooks on Amazon in the links below
I was specifically looking at the one being sold by "abcdcomputers" for $629.99 since they include all the specs and details, they also have a 30 day satisfaction period once you receive it so you can return it if something's wrong. The same MacBook reburbished goes for $200 and has a slightly faster processor, but way less memory in its hard drive and you can of course get the Apple protection plan.
I read the reviews of the Amazon seller and they're good, but still my question is do I save $200 and go with Amazon or just dish out the extra money so I have a warranty through Apple?
Buying a new laptop can be a daunting task, especially for the novice user who is facing a myriad of different models, specifications and manufacturers! If you're not sure what type of system you need, how powerful it is necessary and what kind of budget you have to look then read on.
The first thing to do when you choose your new laptop is to decide what it must use. Picking the perfect laptop for your needs can help you save time and money and also ensure that you have a system that can meet their demands. Today, the average user needs a system that can easily access Internet, wifi, par is usually considered a necessity and is usually installed in most laptops find. WiFi is a way to access the Internet wirelessly from your laptop, which means they can easily access the network from anywhere in your home and even away from home for wireless hotspots.
Will you use your laptop for store music, video and image files? If you need to watch the hard disk size. The hard disk is the area of your computer that stores information. A file standard music occupies approximately 1 MB of space, modern laptops are now sold with hard drives of large capacity, while that up to 500 GB. But do you really need something of this size? Speaking from experience with a drive of about 40 GB is more than enough for me to store music, games, photos, users, etc. Just really serious running large photo editing software, the latest games and store large video files to worry about finding a hard drive over 60 GB.
RAM (Random Access Memory) are other specifications, you see when you look at laptops. A simple way of thinking that the effects of RAM is the speed of your laptop to run and do things. For the user database that uses the Internet, save images, etc., you'll find 1GB of RAM enough. The team will start operations in general no problem at all. Serious gamers need to opt for more RAM to run the latest games.
Need to play music CDs or to record their songs in one? If you then move out of laptops advertised as ultra portable and compact. These machines are designed for access network and files while in motion. The systems are very small and lightweight and therefore does not come with a CD or DVD. Useful and convenient if you do no access to CD or write their own but impractical if you do!
Now, we have established specifications of the laptop which you need to use the database you can watch on the budget you need. You have 2 options available here. You can choose a new unit or you can view the refurbished units have become increasingly popular. Remodeling units are second user machines that have been fully tested and cleaned to restore it nine. There may be some surface marks and scratches, but work like new, and can save significant sums in the price of one machine new. A good source of laptop refurbished is an online store such as href = "http://www.eflexcomputers.com"> http://www.eflexcomputers.com provide a range of new models and refurbished and can not see the difference price and make your choice based on that.
For a model like the one just mentioned, 1.7GHz, 1GB RAM, 40-60 GB hard drive, you can expect to pay about £ 350 for a new model, or select a refurbished model like the Dell D610 for about 200 pounds. Happy shopping!
