Refurbished isn't the same as remanufactured, just FYI, since I noticed you used both terms in your question. Refurbished basically means somebody made sure it works - replaced a switch or battery or whatever. Remanufactured means returned to as new condition. I have had mixed results in the past with refurbished products, some were as good as new, while some looked as if they had been thrown around by gorillas. I'm VERY picky about some things, such as scratches on displays, and I've seen refurbished TVs that had dead LEDs, so I wouldn't be surprised if a tablet had a less than perfect display. That's a deal breaker for me. Of course, there is the possibility that it could be perfect. If you can see it ahead of time, than fine. If you have to order it sight unseen, I would pass and spend the extra money.
