Should I buy a used or refurbished Mac?

Episode 1010 (2:05:56)

Roger from Gladstone, AL

Roger is thinking of getting rid of his Dell and going with an Apple. He has an iPad already, which he loves, but he's thinking of getting a Mac. It's more expensive, but Leo says it's also a professional grade computer. Since Apple has a smaller market share, there's really no viruses to worry about. If price is the issue, Leo recommends getting a refurbished Mac. Leo only recommends getting a refurbished computer from Apple, though.

What about used? Leo says if he buys used, he'd also buy someone else's problems. He shoulid always buy from the manufacturer so he gets a warranty.
