I've picked up a few refurbs from Tiger and have never had a problem.

New items go down the line and may never get tested or inspected. They can fail simply due to a loose connection.

Refurbs are often new or nearly new items that failed for such minor reasons. They've been tested and inspected hands-on in ways that new items may not be.

The computers I've gotten were restored back to default software with more or less just the O/S and little to no bloatware.

There is a difference though between refurb/remanufactured and used/open-box/returned.
