A new laptop is generally going to be an expensive purchase. If you try to save a bit of money by going with lower specs, you may not end up saving in the long run as you replace your machine more frequently. But, with eBay’s Certified Refurbished program, you can splurge on more powerful hardware while saving a chunk of money compared to retail prices.
eBay’s Certified Refurbished program has a ton of laptops available (opens in new tab), letting you take your pick from top brands like Acer, Microsoft, Dell, Lenovo, and plenty more. All of the laptops purchased through the program will have been refurbished by the manufacturers themselves or by manufacturer-approved vendors, ensuring you get a product that comes in like-new condition in spite of the lower price tag.
We poked around and found some really hot deals through this program. One of the most impressive is the Dell XPS 13 9310. This is a laptop that just launched late last year and costs $1,499 for just the base model. But for $1,261 (opens in new tab), you can snag an upgraded version with an Intel Core i7-1185G7, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. Or you can go for a model with an Intel Core i7-1165G7, 32GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and an Ultra HD+ display for $1,529 (opens in new tab) – those are not upgrades that would come cheap normally.
If you’re after something more on a budget, there’s no shortage of solid options there. You can pick up a recent Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 for $629 (opens in new tab), and that’ll get you a capable 10th-Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and Microsoft’s excellent display. That’s $370 off the regular price.
Acer’s options are nearly as broad as the savings are deep. For a 2-in-1, you can get the Acer Spin 3 (opens in new tab) with an Intel Core i5-1035G1 processor and 8GB of RAM for just $479, or you can go for the more standard Acer Swift 3 (opens in new tab) at $539 and get a bit more power while you’re at it. You can even get your game on with an Acer Nitro 5 (opens in new tab) packing an Intel Core i6-9300H, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics processor, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive all for just $849.
While you might worry about quality because you’re not buying a new laptop directly from the manufacturer, eBay can help you cast your worries aside. Any product purchased through the eBay Certified Refurbished program will come with a two-year warranty. So, give these laptops a look (opens in new tab).
