Refurbished Vs. New

Refurbished products can also be known as reconditioned, this means that the product has been through Microsofts thorough process to be sold again as refurbished. For example, companies that are upgrading to a new set of laptops or computers will sell them onto a refurbisher who will then diagnose, repair and adhere to the Microsoft refurbished programme. This could mean that the product only needs cleaning or be resprayed, it could also mean some of the parts need to be replaced, a common replacement is a keyboard due to worn-down keys.

Buying refurbished doesn’t always mean that the product has been used. Products can be sent back to manufacturers for a variety of different reasons, for example, the packaging could be damaged, this would then be repackaged and sold as refurbished for a fraction of the price at new. What a bargain! Sometimes people change their minds about wanting the product, in this case, the phone would be cleaned, fixed (if necessary) and repackaged ready to be sold and sent back out.

All refurbsishers will offer a return to base warranty with any of their products they sell, this gives you the same peace of mind as buying new.


  • The price, an article written by Digital Trends says nearly any electronic device can be 50% of the original price when refurbished. What a steal!
  • You can get older models that are no longer sold in stores.


  • There’s a limited selection. The product might not be in the size or colour you would like. But there will always be alternatives.
