I can get one from Amazon, but it is refurbished. I have ordered refurbished sound equuipment without any regret. It would seem a refurbished item would be fine as it has been checked,
Fixed, and guaranteed.
I wonder if anyone here has bought a refurbished computer and your opinions?

Refurbished business computers can be off-lease machines 2-3 years old that have been checked out and then offered for sale. I have bought several of these over the years. I have a pristine Thinkpad T430 that I use for Linux. That's what I'm typing this post on.

As long as it has the original manufacturer's warranty I would not worry overmuch.

You'll never need to install it again

It's always sad when you have to junk a perfectly working machine. I recently dispatched two netbooks that were just too underpowered to be useful - even with a very lightweight Linux. They were 32-bit machines.
The main problem is trying to run a modern browser - most are memory hogs. I have a Toshiba 64 bit netbook now that struggles with Chrome and Firefox. So far Midori works OK with it.
