Not trying to be a pain, but this is WAY too vague to even answer. If you don't have needs/wants then just go buy whatever you can afford. Otherwise, you need to give a lot more information about your intent here.

New laptops (for general use) are pretty cheap right now so I wouldn't think there would be big enough difference to give up the warranty advantages.

Refurb means different things to different sellers. I've bought a lot of refurb electronics with good results, but they were generally things that were essentially new but had been returned for various reasons that often have nothing to do with performance or reliability. I always search for refurb units of the one I'm looking at and if there is an abundance of them available it's a bad sign.

our company has had good results purchasing "refurbished" laptops directly from Dell's Outlet. The units come with the full warranty a new unit would have, are in-stock as listed, and usually save from 20% and up off full new price. Only one bad laptop in 4 years, and Dell replaced it immediately.
