It is time for a new computer. Do you buy new or used one listed online locally?
I am wondering what the majority of members do when it is time to buy a new computer. Do you buy a new factory machine or do you shop for a used one i.e. listed online on Amazon, eBay or craigslist etc?
To date I have bought three used computers off of a local craigslist seller with good success. This seller buys pallets of computers from high-rise office buildings who are doing a full refresh so; he always has a lot to choose from. I have saved a lot of money buying high end machines for cheap! Currently, I have computers in use for over three years without problems.
I saw a couple of machines on amazon that have a nice set up and price but never bought a used PC from an online shopping portal.
Have you ever bought a used computer online, if so which website? What was your overall experience? How long did the computer last before having to get another?
