Since these have been popping up new a lot lately figure I post this for people who are not afraid of refurbs, its about $50 cheaper than the Costco deal but thats still something, also probably no tax for some people.

Only a 90 day warranty through Acer so make sure to stress test it, before your satisfied with it.

it would be good to note that this appears to have a GTX 1050 display adapter (according to the ebay details).

Added it to the title if this was the GTX 1050 Ti this would be a steal at this price.

This is not a good price for a used Laptop. In fact, new Laptops available from HP and MSI with same configuration, with either same price or slightly higher price.

Find me one of those new laptops with a GTX 1050? When you make a comment like that you usually want to back it up cause im pretty sure you are incorrect! Unless slightly higher to you means $100-200 more?

Don't get over excited. Let me show you some:-

In fact, I would say, this is one of the worst deal for a used laptop. Regarding your $100 more, you will get a brand new Acer laptop with same configuration + GTX 1050 Ti. Search here and you will find that too.

And here is the MSI one:

First link you have to pay tax so add at least $50-60 on average to it which brings it more than a little more but I will admit that one is not bad.

Second link normal HD to get to that to a 256 SSD add another $100 from the manufacture than also pay tax so way more expense.

Third link 1050 2gb vs a 4gb price jump again but still around $100 more.

Yes I know about the TI acer but again add $125 before tax to that one which would make it almost $200 more. A few bucks to you is a lot more than a few bucks to me.

How the third link is $100 more?
And my point is, just for an SSD, I am not going to buy an used laptop? It is not even refurbished.

If you can find someone to ugprade the gfx card which you probably wont but the manufacture it would probably cost you $100 for the card with 4GB of Ram.

This posted one is for a manufacture refurbish product? So I am not sure what your referring to when you keep saying used, if you are taking about this link its used but it has been manufacture refurbished. Its being sold directly by Acer. As I mentioned this is for people who rather save some cash, so its not for everyone. The only good option you provided is the $650 costco deal and that still would be around $70-80 more because of the $20 price difference and averaging around a 60 tax on average depending on state/city you live in. Which yes I would pick the cost deal unless I had ebay bucks or a % off code to make the deal even sweeter.

Bro, read the item description properly of your link before you comment here, backing up your deal. A refurbished product should be almost equal to a new product, may be a return or defective unit, restored to original condition.
This item description says:
Quote :
This item is in Scratch & Dent condition. It has been professionally restored by an Acer approved vendor and comes with a 90 day manufacturer warranty. Units will show signs of use. Functionally, these units are equivalent to New products. Scratch & Dent units may be shipped in non-retail packaging.
It is not even restored by Acer but by some Acer approved 3rd party Vendor. So 90 days warranty for that kind of laptop is really scary. This is not like Dell Refurbished item where you have full warranty like a new model and restored by Dell directly. And You are mentioning Tax in lot of cases. Are you trying to say this Laptop does not have tax? Guess what... I just added it to cart and it has $40 tax in my area. So you point is not really valid.

And regarding 2GB 1050 vs 4GB 1050, don't argue without knowing the facts. The performance difference is minimal. And regarding your $100 extra...if you pay that, you will get something like this. So don't post your imaginative prices here and there to back up your claims.

Brand new, full warranty and comes with a GTX 1050 Ti which is 30% more powerful.
