So Im buying the dell xps 13 and i found two on newegg. One is refurbished and one is brand new .https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACYB6P01559&cm_re=dell_xps_13_9360-_-1TS-000A-02JP2-_-Product https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACYB6P01517&cm_re=dell_xps_13-_-1TS-000A-02JN8-_-Product The refurbished one is cheaper but its refurbished. Does it matter if its refurbished.Also thier are no reviews so im wondering if its possible i may get scammed buying this. Thoughts?

i recommend buying the new XPS 13 with the quad cores if any at all.
Or go for an refurbished xps 15 with a clear readable warranty

Refurbished is always good if the warranty is given! I personally buy everything in outlets and refurbished :D

Looks good but this warranty is pretty weak considering the price. I would not buy it. It should have at least 1 year.

I wouldn't worry buying a refurbished unit from Newegg since it has been refurbished by Dell and has a factory warranty HOWEVER Dell's refurbished units are not like Apple's refurbished units where they are in 100% pristine cosmetic condition.  I would recommend trying to score a refurbished unit directly from Dell under their Outlet site and getting a "New" model.  New means item was ordered or even shipped but never used.  Plus with the Dell Outlet they always have sales and when I bought my 9560 I live chatted my ordered and got an extra 15% off.
