They could also be the store displays. Or not to mention ones that didn't sell.
yes. no. computers that don't sell and are still sealed in their original packaging are not refurbs.
refurbs are demo machines or customer returns that were repaired.
Hey, if they work, who cares?
is there like a certain failure rate about them or something?
that depends on who did the refurbing. it's personal preference whether or not you want to buy a refurb machine.
Apple refurbs are generally very nice, I have had no problems with a Power Mac 8500, and only a few, very few with a Performa 6320 CD.
Refurbs are normally just as good as a new machine. They've either had a part replaced or repaired. Normally you wont have any problems with it again in the future. If something is going to break on electronics it normally happens within the first month or two. If it has been working for three years, chances are that it'll continue to work for many years thereafter.
Also demo products are sweet. They're basically new, and from three quarters to half the price of a new unit.
and are usually very beat up
Which absolutely demolishes the performance...
no, just the value
The ones I've bought have always looked great. Maybe you just got a lot of two year olds breaking your merchandise in compusa.
some are in good shape, most aren't (at compusa at least)
