What Does Refurbished Mean?
The term “refurbished” is used to collectively mean a used product that’s been repaired or recertified for resale. However, the extent of repair or refurbishment varies greatly from one industry or company to another.
In the computer industry, refurbished devices range from laptops to desktops that were sold and returned with their packages intact to those returned after short usage. Usually, a refurbished device has undergone a rigorous and thorough process, including replacements, repairs, and quality testing to bring the product to a set standard of performance and quality.
