    Basically refurbished is almost as good as brand new, in most cases. The systems are basically given new innards and exteriors if they're damaged, and rarely do they come out of shape. If it's bad you are also covered under a standard Nintendo warranty.

    But which one would be better? New 3DS $169.99 or 3DS Refurb $141?

    I would say wait, and better yet look for a 3DS XL if you like that console, because I have seen it go to $169 in my area. If not, the better deal is (to a poor ass guy like me, the refurb unit.) I bought my laptop refurbished from Apple, and you couldn't even tell the difference between a new model, and a refurb. They practically look the same. They say cosmetic damages, but the times I have bought refurbed, they never showed up. ;)

    Well, it might be just damaged packaging with scratches, dirt and so on (which was changed to new), so buying a refurbished unit with the same warranty is always a better deal. If it’s not for a present, I suppose.
