Small Q about Geek Squad® Certified Refurbished Products...

I found what seems to be a good deal (Samsung ATIV 8 @ $950), but it's refurbished. It is certified by the BestBuy Geek Squad.

Would it be a mistake to buy this laptop?

I have mixed feelings on this. Sometimes they're gold mines. On the otherhand, I brought an Nvidia 670 TI back to best Buy and told them it was defective because the fan wouldn't spin, and as I walked away I saw them put an "Open box, 10% off" sticker on it.

o.O ouch! I've dropped the idea of buying anything not new tongue.gif.

There should be a 'delete thread request' feature... I happen to start threads on the spur of the moment - often they are not very well thought out. Anyways, thanks for your opinion smile.gif.

I mean, that was just one bad experience, showing it does happen. I also bought a surround system 40% off, working for 3 years so far.

But with stuff like laptops...ya I don't like refurb.
