    I would not buy this kind of thing on craigslist. Besides the issue of it being potentially stolen or used for a crime, laptops are rather delicate things, and you have no idea how it was treated. Laptops are cheap enough that you can just buy one online through a reputable web site. Or Costco, as mentioned (though I've never tried this).

    I also would not buy refurbished. I would buy a refurbished lamp, but not a computer. Check out the following places. I have purchased quite a bit of equipment from all three -- I've bought printers, monitors, and a laptop (at Tiger Direct retail store). They often have deals of the week and we're in a good times for promotions, from now til February probably:

    NCIX: http://www.ncix.com
    Direct Canada: https://www.directcanada.com
    Tiger Direct: http://www.tigerdirect.ca (also have retail stores in Toronto & Mississauga)

    I think Tiger Direct is online only now. There is also a chain called Canada Computers here in the GTA.

    I disagree. I have bought refurbished Lenovo laptops, Nikons and unlocked Samsung phones. Each looked brand new and there was considerable cost savings over buying new. I would not hesitate to buy refurbished from a reputable vendor.

    Unlocked phones are not necessarily refurbished.

    I'm not sure what your point is. My point is to counter James' argument that he would by a refurb lamp but not a computer. The Samsungs I bought were refurbished.

    Perhaps it was just the phrasing that was ambiguous.

    If you are looking for a laptop that is suitable for gaming jobs, a Asus rog laptop would suit you best. Reviews: http://gaminglaptopunder1000.org/gam...ps-under-1000/

    Best way is to read some reviews on websites like Cnet or go to a local store and play with some laptops to find out which one will good for your needs.
