Getting a new desktop is always a major investment. This is true whether you’re getting a new machine or a more affordable refurbished one. There’s a risk-reward aspect at play, which is why it’s not a purchase decision most people take lightly.
For those who don’t know, a refurbished computer is a returned item that has been inspected, repaired, cleaned, and resold. If you’re on a tight budget, buying one can save you a lot of money. You do so, however, with crossed-fingers, because there’s always the possibility of spending more on repairs in the long run.
In contrast, investing on a new machine like the HP 285 Pro G8 Microtower, you spend more at the start but save more money in the long run by avoiding problems and expenses down the road.
