You have to ponder the fact that notebook are always fragile machines:
- they are moved around often, so more subject to miss handeling (a
notebook is more likely to fall from your lap than a desktop is
likely to fall from your desk)
- they are compact, less ventilation, more subject to over heating =>
component aging faster
- they use smaller components, so less robusts
I would always buy a new machine if I can.
I hope you have a waranty that comes with your refurbished machine.
