refurbished generally means there has been a fault and been repaired and resold

Can be either really, depends on the store but they should usually be pretty clear about it. It is often just a return under DSR or box-damaged etc, but can also be a repaired dead-on-arrival device or repaired nearly-new device. Some stores also sell older ex-lease or second-hand items as refurbished.

A lot of sites grade them and give more detailed information about what the cosmetic state will be etc.

50/50 chance of it being a returned laptop or had a fault and was returned.

Most come with a 12 month warranty with the company you buy it from for example Currys, which I bought a refurb laptop from 3 years ago laptops never had a fault and is still in very good condition.

you are both right!

Personally, most refurb laptops I have come across have been from businesses and have never had a fault, they are just second user systems. Thousands of laptops get bought in bulk and then wiped, re-installed and then checked to ensure they are in full working order.

Doesn't always mean there was a fault, just means they aren't new but have been refurbished back to either the manufacturers specification or an improved specification and are in full working condition.

So your both right, it can mean either..

Refurbished - doesn't that mean it's had fur re-applied by a bishop? :prop:

'Refurbished' means its had some sort of fault or damaged repaired, if its a 'customer return', they call it exactly that :thumbsup:
