    I like slim laptops so naturally I wanted a razer blade 14. The only problem I had was that Razer discontinued the 3060 laptops. For me 2,100 is TOO much. Should I start looking at the refurbished market? Or does anyone know a good place to buy a cheaper blade 14?

    Refurb market is a nice too, especially if you'll get some "extended" warranty for the laptop/components.
    Most probably there will be promo's at the beginning on the new year, so I'll wait and hunt for good discount.

    Ebay? or Craigslist?

    I am not familiar with Refurbished market in USA. I am guessing like Pawn shop?

    but in second hand online shopping, you are bound to face bigger risks, which is why I want to add some tips and pointers.

    I recall buying a second hand GPU, the seller looked promising but when I received the item~~~ :mad_::frown_::mad_::confused_:

    Tips to go through when shopping second hand online, and some pointers
    • Seller's communication and feedback
    • Number of photo they upload
    • The amount of details they add to the description of what they are selling
    • Pricing (too cheap can smell fishy)
    Seller's previous sale feedback helps you to check that the seller have some experience in previous sales, and buyers provide promising feedback.

    I recall buying an item which the seller used a photo from the internet to make his auction promising.
    Like GPUs, many lazy sellers use pics from Google search, because they have low level of respect to the item and the buyers. They just want to get rid of the item to make some $$$.

    Trust the seller's who upload their own pics. More than 4 pics

    Good seller's add great level of description of the item they sell. But in the world of today, they either do this to lure you into a trap (phishing scam), but there are those who are opposite.

    Never trust items that are selling too cheap compared to competitors priced value. If you find an online auction that give you that "too good to be true" sense or thrill, do not fall for those. Nothing is too good to be true. If you are interested, contact the seller and ask, "why they are selling it so cheap". They will come up with good excuses. So......... Just don't fall for it.

    The best option is, if you are buying from local, meet the seller and see the item yourself before progressing to buy.

    My tips are some pointers that help you to trust your instincts~~~
