On a budget? Maybe you don’t want to spend a lot on something you don’t use very often, ..but you still want it pretty fast!? Have you ever thought about a refurbished “like-new” desktop computer? Most refurbished computers on Amazon come with a 30 day warranty they work, BUT for $30 you can add a warranty which covers the computer for another 2 or 3 years! That’s more than you get with a new computer. So.. if by chance something does break in a couple years, you’re covered.
Below is a link I setup with a custom search at Amazon refurbished computers which narrows the search down to some of the best available computers under $500, sorted by price (low to high). After you load the link below, the custom search settings can be changed on the left side of the page. Using this current applied search narrows over a 1000 computers down to a dozen good ones. Refurbished computers can save 50% or more off the price of a similar ability new computer.
To compare the refurbished computers shown: “Most of the time,” the higher the number of an internal piece of hardware the better it is and the price goes up. (For examples: DDR4 RAM is faster than DDR3 RAM, 32GB RAM is twice 16GB of RAM Memory, & a 2TB Hard drive is 2x more file space than 1TB HD)

*Most graphic video cards will only fit inside of a mid-tower or full-size tower desktop computer case.
