Is it worth it to buy an open box laptop from newegg?

The only bad thing is it might not come with everything like the charger, manuals, or OS disc.

They shouldn't be any worse than a new laptop for all intents and purposes. What laptop are you looking at specifically? I can take a look at it if you would like.

Most likely should be fine but you have to consider 3 things:

1- most of the time the price cut is minimal
2- sometime you don't get full warranty
3- some parts or defectiveness might occur.

I bought an open box router and the reason for open box was that not stable and only 30 days warranty.
I also bought a laptop case and it was damaged but still usable. (a bit of fabric was ripped off)
