    They are sold under the "refurbished" title. If you have a budget of $500 for a laptop, you can get allot more bang for your buck going with a refurb. And the overwhelming odds are that you will not notice any negatives.

    We have a refurb Samsung.

    Perfect for our needs.

    Never leaves the office downstairs. Ever.....

    If I'm not at work or downstairs at home the internet doesn't exist for me...

    I've had a Chromebox for a few years now. It probably runs pretty much the same Chrome OS that runs on Chromebooks.

    When I first got it, the installed video player didn't play half the stuff I had. I installed a Linux system that plays the videos. The installed player got upgraded over time; it's still quirky but plays most things I try.

    The biggest downside I have with the Chrome OS is you have to log into your Chrome account to do anything. Can be a RPIA at times.

    I don't recommend this. A new computer is a much cheaper option.
