Bought 'refurbished' Lappy, good move or not?

Hi,
i wanted to purchase the Medion S5610 today but after speaking to Medion on the phone they suggested going for the refurbished model that is on their site under a different model number.

I queried what exactly 'refurbished' meant and i was told that it meant that they were the laptops with packaging damage, ex display, laptops with scratches on/aesthetic damage or, more likely, laptops that customers bought, took home and then realised that they didn't want. This meant that i bought the Medion S5610 (in my link, hopefully) for £399 instead of 'new' for £499.
Please can anyone give me their opinion on whether this was a good move please? The 12month warranty is the same as the new laptops.
Ps- being as i purchased over the phone i have 14days to decide!
Many thanks- Buel

S5610 here hopefully:

My GOD that is annoying!
I cant paste the address correctly!
All i can say is that the laptop is on the medion uk page under the heading
Medionshop
Notebooks
Netbooks 15"-16"

Sorry for that!!

If you have a long url try using something like Shrikify click here will help or snipurl click here badhair1963 has used.

Although you are getting a refurbished laptop that will be as reliable as a new one I personally would see what the Aldi shops have available, these have 3 year warranty. occasionally you may find a laptop they still have stock of have reduced it, it depends on how lucky you are.
