I need a refurb to use as a workstation in my business, but this would be serious overkill.
However, I will add that I have had a Toshiba Satellite before and found it to be very reliable. Actually bought it used at a pawnshop and had it for several years with no problems.
Around the fifth time that the new puppy got tangled in the power cord and ripped it out, the DC inlet became detatched from the motherboard.
Research indicated that it only needed a new DC inlet, but the local repair shop said it would need a new motherboard. Ended up just buying a new laptop, as it was about that time.
The fact that it lived on the kitchen table and it took five puppy incidents for something to break is supposed to be a recommendation, by the way.
