How to Shop for a Used Computer

We’ve updated the advice in this guide for 2023.
It’s hard to find a cheap computer with a screen that’s nice to look at, a keyboard and trackpad that are comfortable to use—or just not terrible—and fast-enough performance that won’t leave you waiting for apps and tabs to open.
One solution? A used PC.
Buying a good used PC entails a little more work than getting something new, but a laptop or desktop from a few years ago should still be good enough for you to browse the internet, hop on video calls, edit documents and other school projects, and chat with friends. And stores like Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, and others all have a wide selection of used PCs, saving you from riskier sites like Craigslist and eBay.

Why you might want to buy used
In getting a used PC, you can save a few hundred dollars on a computer that can do most of the same stuff a new one can. For the things most people do on their computers—browsing the web, editing documents and spreadsheets, or looking at and editing pictures and videos from your phone—a new computer and one from a few years ago don’t perform that differently from one another.
If you’re on a strict budget, buying used may allow you to buy something that’s nicer than a modern budget laptop for the same money. A high-end Lenovo ThinkPad that sold for $1,400 two or three years ago, for example, will have an as-fast-or-faster processor and a better screen, and will be made of nicer materials, than a new laptop that’s selling for $500.
Plus, buying a used PC cuts down on electronic waste. You rescue an old but functional computer from getting thrown in the trash, and you avoid buying a cheap PC that will wear out and be disposed of in a few years.
Reasons not to buy used
If you’re looking to play high-end games or do professional 3D drafting work, a used PC might not be the best choice for you. Graphics processors are still advancing more quickly than other computer components, and newer PC games have higher system requirements.
At many online stores, “refurbished” is usually just a fancy word for “used.”
A used laptop usually doesn’t come with a top-tier level of customer service or warranty support, the kind you can get with an AppleCare Protection Plan or an extended manufacturer warranty. You can find used PCs with a year or two left on their original warranties, and those warranties generally transfer to new owners without problems. But it’s more common to find limited 30- or 90-day warranties that will cover you if the computer is dead on arrival but not much else. Third-party extended warranties from companies like Asurion, Geek Squad, or SquareTrade (depending on where you buy from) can offer some peace of mind, but the customer service these companies provide can be hit or miss, and you should read the fine print carefully to check what is and is not covered. The best support comes with a manufacturer-refurbished PC, which carries a like-new warranty from the company that made the computer.
What to look for
Photo: Michael Hession
The three most important things to look for in a used PC are its physical condition (especially for laptops, which move around more and take more punishment), its make and model number, and its specifications.
Some used-PC sellers post pictures of the actual computers they’re selling, which makes it easier for you to assess a computer’s condition. Others might assign it a letter grade—stick to systems with an A or B rating to reduce the risk of visible damage or wear. The only way to guarantee you’ll get something that looks truly new is to buy a manufacturer-refurbished system.
Most people can get by with a computer that meets our minimum requirements.
Generally, we suggest sticking to desktops and laptops made by Dell, HP, or Lenovo (or Apple, if you’re buying a Mac). It’s okay to buy used computers made by smaller outfits like Acer or Asus, but it’s usually easier to find parts and support for older computers made by the bigger companies. In particular, we like business desktops and laptops such as those in the Dell Optiplex and Latitude series, the Lenovo ThinkCentre and ThinkPad family, and the HP Pro and Elite lineup. These kinds of PCs are chunkier than modern ultrabooks like Dell’s XPS 13 or Apple’s MacBook Air, but they’re easier to upgrade and repair, and they’re built out of sturdier materials more likely to hold up under stress.
Most people will be well served by a computer that meets our recommended specs for basic tasks like web browsing, document editing, and video chatting. Here’s what to look for:
- Processor: Look for a tenth-generation or newer Intel Core i5 or i7 processor (Core i5, or i7, followed by a number in the 10000s or higher) or a 3000-, 4000-, 5000-, or 7000-series AMD Ryzen processor (Ryzen 3, 5, or 7, followed by one of those numbers).
- Memory: You’ll need a minimum of 8 GB of memory. But if you buy a computer with 8 GB or less, check to see if you can upgrade the memory yourself—you can almost always upgrade a desktop, but lots of laptops don’t allow it. If you frequently run multiple programs and lots of browser tabs, or if you’ll be playing games or using professional apps like Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, or Premiere, consider looking for 16 GB or opting for an upgradeable device.
- Storage: When you’re buying a new PC, we recommend an SSD that’s 128 GB or larger, which is enough for your operating system, apps, and important documents. If you need more space for photos, large files, or games, look for a larger drive or plan to supplement with a cloud storage service or an external drive.
- Screen resolution: We prefer laptop displays with a 1920×1080 resolution (also called 1080p or Full HD) because they offer laptops the best combination of sharpness and battery life. You may be able to find laptops with 4K displays, but such a screen adds to the laptop’s cost and reduces battery life. In Macs, look for a Retina Display.
- Screen type: For notebooks, look for IPS displays, which provide better color reproduction and viewing angles than cheap TN displays. Used-computer listings don’t always specify the display technology, but 1080p screens are more likely (albeit not guaranteed) to be IPS.
- USB-C or Thunderbolt ports: These aren’t a necessity, but a USB-C port that can charge a laptop and connect to newer monitors is especially convenient (these ports are not as big a deal for desktops). Replacement USB-C chargers are also easier to find and cheaper to buy.
Things to avoid with used PCs
- Old or slow processors: This list includes Intel Celerons and Pentiums, eighth-generation and earlier Intel Core processors, as well as AMD A-series processors. These are older or slower processors that will all feel their age as you use them. Some may even have trouble supporting basic features of Windows 10 or running modern versions of macOS.
- 1366×768 screens: These low-resolution screens, sometimes called HD or WXGA displays, can’t fit as much information and don’t look as sharp as higher-resolution screens. They’re also more likely to use cheap, washed-out TN display panels.
- Spinning hard drives (HDD): A traditional hard drive is the slowest part of any older or cheaper computer. If you buy a computer with an HDD, consider replacing that storage with an SSD.
- Less than 64 GB of storage: That isn’t enough space for you to comfortably install Windows and your most important apps while leaving enough room for Windows Update to work properly. Computers with such tiny SSDs also tend to use a cheaper kind of storage called eMMC, which is slower than a typical SSD and not upgradable.
- 802.11n Wi-Fi (aka Wi-Fi 4): A computer with an older Wi-Fi adapter can still connect to a Wi-Fi 5 or Wi-Fi 6 network, but Wi-Fi 5 (or 802. 11ac) and Wi-Fi 6 have been standard in most computers for nearly a decade, so you should avoid Wi-Fi 4.
Things to avoid with used Macs
- Pre-2013 Macs: These computers still run okay, but they won’t be supported by the latest macOS release, Ventura, or any future releases of macOS. This means you’ll stop getting security updates sooner, and apps will become incompatible sooner.
- MacBooks released between 2016 and 2019: 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros released between 2016 and 2019, 13-inch MacBook Airs released in 2018 and 2019, and all models of the 12-inch MacBook all employ a shallow, unsatisfying “butterfly” keyboard with well-documented reliability problems. Apple is still offering free repairs for these keyboards even when they’re out of warranty, but you should avoid such models entirely if you can help it. We generally recommend buying MacBooks made with Apple’s M-series processors anyway, even used, as they offer far better speed and battery life. These started production in 2020.
Where to look
When it comes to buying used PCs, it’s best to avoid sites like Craigslist, eBay, or Reddit—it’s possible to find good deals there, but if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, you can easily get tripped up by fake or misleading listings or even a PC preloaded with malware. If you’re buying your first used computer, you can avoid scams and heartbreak by sticking to major retailers. Computers from these sellers are also more likely to be professionally cleaned and restored.
Best Buy has a wide selection of preowned, refurbished, and open-box laptops and desktops. The site’s filters make it fairly easy to narrow down the specs by our recommendations above, and the desktops in particular are good deals if you’re able to upgrade the memory or install an SSD yourself.
When buying from Amazon, stick to models with the Amazon Renewed tag, which Amazon says “have been inspected and tested by qualified suppliers to look and work like new” and come with a 90-day replacement-or-refund policy.
When you’re searching Newegg, limiting your search to systems shipped and sold by Newegg can return higher-quality results.
Newegg, a popular site for people who like to build or upgrade their own PCs, also has a lot of used laptop and desktop PC listings, though the search function isn’t as nice. Some of Newegg’s listings are for much older computers than you’ll find at Amazon or Best Buy, so be especially careful about checking the offerings for our recommended specs. Using the “sold/shipped by Newegg” search filters limits the models available but makes it easier for you to find something in good condition sold by the site itself rather than a potentially sketchy third party.
If you’re looking specifically for Macs, OWC has a great reputation for used and refurbished products and offers quite a few MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac models, among others. These computers have 90-day warranties out of the box, but you can add up to two years of additional warranty coverage if you want it.
Check the listings for laptops to make sure that the charger is included.
Local computer stores may also be a good place to check for used hardware. Micro Center keeps a decent selection of refurbished desktops and laptops on hand—some of these are available online, but many are available only if you can make it to an actual store. You might have other decent options local to you—in the San Francisco Bay Area, for example, Central Computers is a well-regarded local chain. A little research and checking Yelp and the BBB might reveal good, reasonably priced options near you, and calling ahead with our recommended specs in hand can help you figure out if any of the store’s in-stock systems will work for you.
If you do take your chances on a site like eBay, it’s especially important to make sure the pictures in the listing are of the actual computer you’ll be buying—not one laptop among several, or pictures that claim to be “representative” of what you’re buying. Avoid buying computers from outside the US, since they can take several weeks to ship and such listings are more likely to be scams. Check the listings for laptops to make sure that the charger is included. And don’t buy from sellers with little to no feedback or a lot of negative feedback.
Almost like new: Manufacturer-refurbished PCs
Apple’s refurbished site almost always has a good selection of recent MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac models.
If you want to save some money but don’t want to take the risks that come with buying used, you might be happy with a manufacturer-refurbished computer. These are systems that are returned to the company that made them, repaired with new parts, and resold in like-new condition with the same warranties you get with new laptops and desktops. Note the difference between a manufacturer-refurbished PC and one listed as “refurbished” on the sites of Best Buy, Newegg, and elsewhere—at many online stores, “refurbished” is usually just a fancy word for “used. ”
The companies with the best pages for refurbished PCs are Apple and Dell. Both have frequently updated inventories of near-new desktops and laptops; both offer the same warranties you get with their new products, including the opportunity to extend those warranties from one to three or four years; and both make it easy to sort computers by specs so you can buy exactly what you want. Lenovo also offers refurbs with a one-year warranty, and while HP offers some refurbished items you need to look up what you want on its website and then call to order.
If you’re buying a refurbished Mac, we suggest sticking to 2020 and later models that have Apple’s faster M-series chips; these MacBooks also have longer battery life and more reliable keyboards than older models.
For a refurbished Dell computer, we prefer Latitudes because they’re usually built better than Inspiron models, and it’s usually easier to upgrade their storage or memory. As you shop, check out Dell’s coupon codes to see if there are any models with particularly good discounts; these codes refresh every week or so.
Upgrades and repairs
Photo: Michael Hession
When you buy a used PC, you might find that it needs maintenance more quickly or more regularly than a brand-new computer. Or it might need some extra memory or faster storage to help it cope better with modern websites and apps. You can upgrade nearly all desktops and many laptops with a bit of time, research, and a few tools. We can’t advise you on every possible repair to every possible system—iFixit has some PC repair guides, though not for all models—but we can cover the basics. And we have some more advice for repairing and resuscitating an old laptop.
- SSD: If you buy a used PC with a spinning hard drive, that component will be by far the slowest thing in the entire computer. Upgrading to a solid-state drive will dramatically speed things up. We have SSD recommendations for older and newer computers—Crucial’s System Advisor page can give you some information on the kind of drive you need. If the computer you bought already has a small, 128 GB or 256 GB SSD and you want more space, 500 GB and 1 TB drives are much more affordable than they were a few years ago.
- Memory: A Windows PC with 4 GB of memory or less will struggle once you’ve opened more than a couple of apps and a few browser tabs. We recommend 8 GB for basic use and 16 GB for people who frequently run multiple programs or lots of browser tabs, or who play high-end games or use high-end apps like Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. Again, the Crucial System Advisor page can tell you what kind of memory to buy for your system—though many laptops, including all MacBooks made after 2012, don’t allow memory upgrades at all.
- Chargers: Some used laptops are sold without chargers, and older MacBook power supplies in particular are prone to fraying. It’s safest to buy a replacement directly from your computer’s manufacturer, and Acer, Apple, Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo all have stores you can try. Avoid cheap knock-off chargers, which don’t last as long and can be fire hazards, and don’t buy Apple chargers from eBay, where counterfeits are almost unavoidable. OWC sells genuine Apple chargers for older MacBooks for less than Apple’s prices. For newer USB-C laptops, any certified USB-C charger should work fine.
- Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi adapters might not be included in your used PC, especially in older desktops. That’s fine if you can connect the computer to your router with a wire, but if you can’t, reliable USB Wi-Fi adapters are available for as little as $20.
- Windows 10 and 11: If your used PC came with Windows 10 already installed, you might be able to upgrade to Windows 11. Typically, PCs produced after 2016 or 2017 will have a new enough processor and the required security chip to run this latest version of Windows. But if it came with Windows 7 or 8 (which are no longer receiving security updates), you should upgrade. See our instructions on how to upgrade or install Windows from scratch.
- macOS: Apple makes it pretty easy to upgrade to the latest version of macOS that your particular Mac is capable of running—this page can help you determine whether you can install the latest version (macOS Ventura as of this writing) and what you need to do.

CORE – Recommendations for choosing a used laptop.
Recommendations for choosing a used laptop.
This article will not help with 100% probability to avoid an unsuccessful purchase, but will guide the buyer on what aspects to pay attention to first of all.
As a rule, used laptops are sold by the owners after the warranty period has expired in authorized service centers, therefore, when buying such a device, it is necessary to study as much as possible the possible problems for the specific laptop model that you decided to purchase.
This article will provide recommendations from laptop repair engineers, i.e. people facing a variety of laptop problems almost every day.
First of all, it is necessary to make a visual inspection for mechanical damage to the case and traces of liquid on the outer parts of the laptop case and keyboard.
Cracks or chips on the case or its parts most often appear from careless use, falling, impact or other negative mechanical impact.
However, one cannot exclude the possibility of defective body parts during production, the manufacturer’s savings on the materials used, or the engineers’ mistake when designing the mechanical components of the laptop – in these cases, you should not blame the previous owner for the negligence.
Notebook – portable, multifunctional but, despite the plastic case – a fragile device. Therefore, even a slight crack on the case serves as a reason to doubt the careful handling of the previous owner to his device and, as a result, the likelihood of acquiring a problematic or not fully functional laptop increases.
If traces of liquid getting into the laptop are found, then it is better to immediately refuse to purchase such a device, because. if liquid gets on the electrical components of the board, electrolysis is inevitable, and this is a time bomb for a laptop.
Often, a flooded laptop cannot be repaired without block replacement of major components. But replacing a laptop motherboard with a new one, at a price, as a rule, is comparable to half the cost of a laptop of a higher class, and if not only the motherboard has failed, then the expediency of repairing this device loses all meaning.
If, for some reason, it was decided to purchase a laptop with traces of liquid ingress, we highly recommend taking it for diagnostics to a specialized service center, where they can assess the risk of laptop failure, and, if necessary, wash the board in an ultrasonic bath, to stop the process of destruction of elements exposed to liquid.
A visual inspection has been made, the external condition of the laptop does not arouse suspicion.
The next thing that is recommended to check is the involvement of the selected laptop model in the problem series. This can be done in several ways. For example, ask a question about a laptop of interest at a specialized forum for the repair of this type of equipment. As a rule, people in such forums communicate and give recommendations, in whose competence there is no doubt. You can also try to call service centers in the hope that you will get a kind and unloaded engineer at the moment who will agree to advise by phone.
It is equally important to check with the seller whether the laptop was repaired. This issue deserves special attention. Not always, the seller of the used laptop specifies that the laptop was being repaired, because. this automatically leads to a drop in the price of the device or the buyer and completely refuses to purchase. If the seller insists that the laptop was not under repair, then it all depends on how honest the person is, so the buyer has to rely on his intuition – to believe the person and his decency, or else refuse the deal.
The main danger in acquiring a laptop after repair is the poor quality work done to restore the device in a service center. Because most often BGA microcircuits fail, many service centers position the so-called “repair” of this very microcircuit as an advertisement, usually this implies a banal soldering or, at best, reballing the microcircuit. Such a repair is much cheaper than replacing it with a new microcircuit, but, unfortunately, as a rule, it is not durable and is only suitable for restoring a laptop for a short period of time – from a week to several months.
Such a repair is justified if the owner has urgent work on a faulty laptop and there is no way to do it on another device, and the repair needs to be done as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
But it often happens that a person asks to repair a laptop quickly and cheaply in order to sell it faster and earn more on the sale. The seller provides proof of the full working capacity of the laptop, i.e. turns it on, starts a movie, game or any program at the request of the buyer – the laptop works. A happy buyer takes it home, uses it for a month or two, and the laptop fails again, but already with the buyer, who will now repair it at his own expense. So the long-awaited purchase turns into a complete disappointment.
Therefore, the owner, who agreed to a cheaper repair, will want to get rid of the device as soon as possible, which, most likely, will not work for a long time and will have to be carried back for repair. So if you still have doubts about the decency of the seller, it is better to refuse to buy a laptop.
We should also mention the laptop battery. Like all batteries, it has its own resource, so you should check with the seller how much the laptop runs on battery at minimum load and maximum. It will also not be superfluous to find out the battery wear using the software. For example, the EVEREST program or its successor AIDA64 can do this by selecting the “power supply” – “battery wear” tab.
And most importantly, be sure to agree with the seller on the possibility of returning the goods within a few days if any problem is found in the laptop.
The price of a used laptop is much lower than a new one, but there is a risk of becoming the hero of a folk saying – “the miser pays twice.” Therefore, be extremely careful when buying a laptop from your hands, pay attention even to the little things, and if there is doubt about the integrity of the seller or the reliability of the laptop, it is better to spend more time looking for a suitable device than subsequently spending time and money repairing a laptop.
