    Hi! I've been looking at laptops for my brother to use when he goes to Ireland. I think he wants it just to watch movies on the plane. He's not computer savvy---he didn't know a laptop is actually a computer. He just wanted to know if he could watch movies on it. I found a site that sells refurbished laptops. Are they worth the money to take a chance that they'll last for a few years? The one's I've perused either say Grade A Refurbished or Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher. Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi, I have used Microdream for some time now not just for pc's but other computer accessories.
    The Win 7 that I am using now came from them a year and a half ago and so far, I have had no problems with it.
    They are based in Devon, England.

    Thanks for the response. I'm in the US, so the shipping charges would negate any benefit. I did look at the site, and the prices are similar to what I've seen. Thanks.

    is where I've bought most of the dozen or so refurbished Dell desktops and laptops that I've bought in the past 5 - 6 years.
    Besides costing only $200.00 - $350.00 apiece and saving me a LOT of money over buying brand new ones, none of them have "crashed and burned".
