Buying a refurbished laptop

    Pavilion is HP's consumer range and is not built to the same standard as business ones. That said, they are fine for general use.

    Never bought refurbished one, bought good few secondhand. That's where you'll get value imo. I don't think that shop offers anything I would buy, too expensive.

    Yeah one thing I noticed about a lot of refurbished laptops is that the price often isn't much less than the price of a new one. Possibly better off buying new for the extra ~€100 and getting a better warranty.

    Do tell where these second hand market places with excellent value are to be found....

    Got few good deals on Adverts and eBay. Of course no warranty. Secondhand market lol.

    It depends, if you can check running temps, specs and do a bit of research before buying, I consider it safe. And out my own experience, it worked out fine for me. If you prefer to have some warranty with purchase, you'll pay for it.
