Depends on what we're talking about. I've got 5-6 laptops and 3-4 desktops now. I've bought a couple refurbished laptops over the last year, just trying different things out. For example, I bought a refurbished 2010 MacBook Pro. It's just a 500 GB HD and i5 processor. No retina or SSD or anything like that. I still really like it though. Part of me thinks I should have gone the Mac route a decade ago.
