I'm thinking of replacing my laptop with something a little more up to date. I got the existing unit about 5 years ago directly from Toshiba, a factory refurb Satellite model. It isn't and wasn't to be used for anything requiring zero to 60 in microseconds, and (with the supplied Vista) it can't and doesn't, and I've no problem with that feature. In fact, the real reason for thinking of replacement is W10, which like as not will be an expensive proposition if, and especially if, I don't get it on a new (vs. refurb) machine. (Not even thinking here of trying to get the existing machine to run W10 in the first place. I admit that I have not checked into W10 system requirements yet.) Has anyone else had experience with refurb gear, and how happy have you been? What to look for other than knowing if the hardware was done at the mfr's shop or someplace less diligent?
