Seriously, it is better for the environment and you get a high quality machine just like a brand new with extended warranty and cheaper. If Apple offered refurbished iPhones I would get one too. Instead, I bought one on eBay in excellent condition with a three days use from the original owner. The planet can't provide resources for infinite electronic devices and machines. Plus why make the companies even richer than they already are by selling overpriced products just because they are brand new.
