If you’re in the market for a new gadget but can’t justify paying full price, refurbished hardware is a good way to get the most bang for your buck. While the word “refurbished” is somewhat tainted with a negative mental association, the odds are that you’ll get a problem-free unit that will provide the same life as if you bought it new (in some cases the unit has simply been returned and can’t be re-sold as “new”). If you can leap over the mental barrier and pick up a refurb, you can get a 16GB Nexus 7 for $150 from eBay right now.
While we’ve seen other deals come close, this is the best price we’ve seen on the N7 to date, refurbished or not. Head below to grab one before they’re gone.
