Remanufactured Notebook PCs

by praglen / February 20, 2010 10:36 PM PST

Know some sources for used notebook PC's? I bought my girl friend a used Netbook and it works great! I have a 5 year old Toshiba Notebook and the wheels are beginning to fall off(need new speakers, more Ram, more powerful microprocessor, etc.
I'd appreciate your suggestions.

So, B GRADE stuff?

Dual Core?
by praglen / March 11, 2010 3:01 PM PST

I've seen a number of dual core refurbished notebooks for sale on

The cheapest is:

Core 2 Duo/Core Duo/Core Solo

Dell Latitude D620 Core Duo T2300 1.66GHz
1GB 40GB CDRW/DVD 14.1" XP Home
Part # D620-CD166-RCD-6R
Refurbished $299.99

What's the advantage(s) of a dual core vs. a single core and is it worth the price difference?

Search online for "cheap refurbished PCs"; "cheap remanufactured PCs", etc. You'll get lots of results.

I ended up at and found an ad from Toshiba for refurbished PC's and bought a Satellite L505D for $339(Dual core 32-bit,3GB ram, 15.6" screen, 320 GB HD, Windows 7 Home Premium notebook,2.0AMD Athlon II processor. Thru some snafu, instead of the usual 90-day warranty on refurbished PC's, they gave me 1 year(I didn't object)...

Which brand is better for designing?

For Windows PCs one is much like the other but for DESIGNING it's all about the designer.

As the old teacher told you, it's not the tools.
