I can tell you from experience that low budget gaming laptops really don't last long(less than 2 years in my case). I'd imagine your room mate has slightly inflated expectations, I'm not trying to insinuate or anything but usually people who ask for gaming laptop suggestions are more than understanding of the fact that it'll really burn your hard earned money and as a result often are more than willing to compromise(usually financially).

At a $200 discount it's quite the bargain and easily the best laptop deal I've seen in months. However as far as refurbs go, I can't but help think what would have to be so bad about that laptop for the previous owner to return it. Especially when you consider Lenovo makes some of the best sub $900 gaming laptops around(valuewise).
