I needed a laptop to run resource and graphics intensive software like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, as well as connect to a Huion Cintiq alternative.

I purchased the following refurbished Lenovo on Amazon, as it has 16G Ram, SSD, i7 processor. I didn't open the box yet, but I'm wondering if  I should have just purchase a brand new one with similar specs. I can buy a 3 year warranty for around $150 in addition to the $840 I paid for the refurbished laptop.

Link to description of computer I purchased:   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CX7Y1ZW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Should I just return it and purchase new? If so, which one would you recommend? Or should I just buy the 3 year warranty? Thanks in advance.
