    you can usually luck out when you go to BestBuy and they have some open box items.. varies greatly from store to store.

    Best bet at a good selection of refurbs is newegg.com I know you said not internet but honestly man.. it's so hit and miss otherwise.

    Then a proper response would be "walk-in retail warehouses of Frys" and not a link to a website, dumbass.

    don't understand why you care if its online or in the store. I would say check on sites like woot.com or dealsucker.com for 1 sale a day sites, those are when you can find the best deals.

    umm, why do you want a refurbed lappy when new ones are $300 with a full warranty? a refurb will still cost you $250ish with a 30-60 day warranty

    Refurbished Computers!

    Refurbs can be fine. If you purchase it from a well known company to increase your chances of getting something that is not a lemon. Bought a Dell Optiplex GX520 from "ElectroComputerWarehouse" and the product id is "dell_gx620_3.0_sff".

    Try micro center. Also ask your local electronics store if they are selling the display unit.

    I've lucked out at Best Buy a few times on Open Box laptops/netbooks.

    A couple of times they were items that weren't on the floor and some negotiation was done as well.

    Sams Club usually has some off to the side with the TVs returns.
    Also never had a problem with returning anything if there
    is a problem.

    Factory refurbished lenovos are decent. We got a bunch at work and I can't tell the difference from new.
