    Do you buy new, used, or refurnished?

    When it comes to a lot of your tech items in your home, do you typically go for something new and shiny or do you opt to buy your items refurbished or even used (know it is technically the same but refurbished just means it is guaranteed to work). I like to buy new, even if that means buying items that are a few years old. Some stuff I don't mind refurbished though. Like my laptop is that and I saved almost $200 on it because of that.

    It depends.

    If I'm building a computer then I'll usually buy pre owned stuff to save some money, if it's a laptop then I'll always go with a brand new one (laptops don't tend to last long, unfortunately) if it's a phone then I'll go refurbished if I can, used works fine too. And if it's a car then I don't have much of a choice

    It depends on how big the saving is. I can usually rely on Amazon to cut me a pretty good deal on their warehouse items. That being said, I think it depends on the item. I wouldn't get anything that's on the fragile side refurbished. That includes hard drives or other storage of course. Unless the saving is substantial, I say don't bother.

    I can't stand for used PC parts or laptops because that would mean that the parts are old. It's fine for office work and such but my work tasks require newer hardware.

    For games, I buy 99% used on eBay. The only new ones I get are via Limited Run Games. I rarely buy digital copies of games (case in point, take in a bit of the seething going on right now across the internet coming from PS3 owners who bought digitally now that Sony is shutting down the PS3 online store) but when I do, it's usually Steam. I guess that's new? is G2A considered to be Used in this case?

    Furniture at my house is all used, but some of it is pretty nice & of course antiques are used. Just ordered some new furniture though. Thanks Raymour & Flannigan.
