    Provided you receive the full warranty you entitled to, then YES.

    I would check online store ratings, so see what others experiences have been. www.bizrate.com
    www.pricegrabber.com (these companies offer ratings of some online retailers)
    Don't allow yourself to be a guinea pig.
    Is it a reputable company?
    What are their policies for return or exchange if there is a problem with the unit?
    Go through everything with a fine teeth comb
    Check the terms of their warranty.
    I would advise that its better if the tablet is refubished at a toshiba factory, and ask about that, it would at least afford you the opportunity of a solid warranty & the possibility of extending the warranty with toshiba.
    But if its not make sure you are in agreement w/ the warranty terms.
    Make sure you ask all questions before purchase.
    Be mindful of how quickly they respond and how they respond to your queries.
    In general just be a proactive consumer. Do all you can to not fall prey to conmen or con companies as the case may be

    I got a refurbished Palm M500 a few years ago and its still working fine. But its a bit step from a PDA to a TabletPC. Check the store out first and if you want to take the risk then buy it. But you could buy a refurbished one from the manufactor themselves meaning that it is easyer to get them to fix it or just buy a new one.
