I am always a little leary about "re-certified or re-furbished" electronics, have never purchased them before and the older gen may not be upto the newer games. I may be able to nudge the $400.00 mark if it gets a better unit, could also probably get away with a smaller monitor size like 13".
Actually, 14-15" is generally the pricing "sweet spot" on laptop screen sizes. The 13" and under are scarcer and tend to get allocated to pricier units.
