We don’t often offer refurbished items, but every now and then we find some worth considering. Now, Acer’s own refurbished store on eBay is selling the 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5 for $250. That’s a Chromebook-level price for a Windows laptop with reasonably good specs. As with any laptop at this price point, there are some obvious trade-offs, but that’s life in the compromise zone.
This laptop is a great option for those who like the idea of a Chromebook, but need the convenience of a Windows desktop. This machine is ideal for someone who lives in Google Docs or multitasks on a remote server.
The Aspire is running Windows 10 Home but should be ready for Windows 11. In terms of power, it’s an AMD Ryzen 3 3350U with four cores and threads and up to 3.5GHz. It also has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The display is 15.6 inches and has a resolution of 1080p.
As for the renovated room, there’s a lot to feel good about here. Certified by an “Acer Authorized Reseller” and then resold by the company. It also comes with a two-year warranty from Allstate (US only) and has a 30-day return window.
