Refurbished vs New Laptops

There are many availible Refurbished laptops in the market. I have been looking for Dell Studio 17 laptops but all i can find is Dell Studio 15 laptops and even then most of those are Refurbished instead of brand new ones.

Anyway i just wanted to ask you guys are refurbished Laptops worth it? Anyone here has experience with Refurbished laptops? and also you do get the warranty and everything with the refurbished ones ?

It's a risk. Try to get a brand new laptop if possible.

What sort of a risk? I mean like a risk of hardware failure in the laptop?

Yes.

ask for the warranty..If there is warranty then possibly safe but if no warranty then better not to go for that....Galaxy offers 1year warrant(local) on some of its refurbished laptops while 90 days(this is the official warranty) on some other refurbished laptops..

so if one buys refurbished laptops with 1 year warranty then it isnt a bad deal either.....

Ah..

I've been looking around for Dell Studio 17 laptops but all i can find are Studio 15 and most of those refurbished..

And ive basically set my heart on getting a Dell Studio laptop :P..
