I recently purchased a refurbed laptop directly from IBM, and I have to
say that so far I'm very happy with the results. I purchased my
previous laptop from Buy.com, and while the price was good, the hardware
was older. The machines directly from IBM have nearly the same pricing,
but are newer machines, and come with a warranty from IBM, so you don't
get funny surprises like non-working mouse pointers or sound.
If you can find a current employee to give you a username and password
for the store, you can get an additional discount on your machine, but
even without the discounts the prices were really good.
Life's too short to deal with crappy hardware. Do yourselves a favor
and get a machine manufactured in the last 5 years.
