the conditions are the same. i am comparing a new product to a new product. resale value is something that you logically consider when buying a new product. you're the one comparing a refurbished product to a new one
Some refurbished products are brand new, out of the box.
Then we have open box.
Then we have other sales.
You see where this is going? Sure, if you are an art student and you are looking for a new laptop for your faculty, cool, go ahead! But not everyone is an art student, in school, etc. Some of us don't waste our money on such poor performing crap to begin with; let alone, horrifically expensive even with the education discounts. All laptops go on sale, anyways, around school. So what are you even arguing?
This MSI can be overclocked as well. Heh, just even more bang for the buck.
