Buying a refurbished laptop is pretty normal and I would call a great opportunity to save money and even get an upgraded laptop.

Around a year ago I bought refurbished HP laptop from Amazon, though I'm not using it on my everyday computing works, I'm using it as a backup laptop, I'm taking it with myself when I'm travelling and on other occasions. 

In this article I have listed 13 certified refurbished laptops which are on Sale on Amazon offering to save up to 40% of their price.

If I would be in buying mood now, I would probably pick up the The HP ENVY TouchSmart Sleekbook m6-k022dx, because of it's massive hard disk drive of 750GB. 6GB RAM and it's price - $499.99

Please note those items are available for sale on Amazon, by clicking on links on this page and by making a purchase on Amazon site, I will earn an affiliate income from that.
