As specs of the AMD A8-7680 say, its 4 core processor running at 3500 MHz (3800 on single core)

Its more than enough to play PR at 60+ fps with any graphics.

MHz aren't everything. Its still designed to prolong laptop battery life first, performance second.

No, in a laptop it is most certainly not, though it should be noted that it matters what display it is driving - likely a 1080p with a 70-75Hz refresh, most laptops stick with those... any higher, and it would be even slower. Would also have thermal issues after hours of play, if you're the type that plays for several hours.

It CAN play, sure - it will run. But on a laptop or poorly configured (non-gaming) PC, you're not gonna be getting 'all the FPS' despite what any specs or reviews state, likely should be ignored unless they are 1:1 with your exact system and THIS game; and you will have to get a bit technical to setup your lappy in an ideal manner for gaming/playing PR - diving deep into settings you may not be familiar with, testing and changing things and retesting... But it will run.

I am upgrading my hard disk drive, my friend has told me to look for a refurbished version of seagate sata hard disk here, but I am not sure whether the refurbished version of sata hdd would be as good as original or not, or rather I am a little worried that saving a few bucks may lead me to buying a new one later. So if anyone has a refurbished hard disk purchase / usage experience let me know, this will be my first refurbished purchase but if convinced with this one ill be shifting completely to this idea for all my pc / laptops future buys.

Think of it like this: a refurbished CPU cooler might break, but then the CPU would fail to start due to immediate thermal issues. You'd lose nothing in most every case, and fixing/replacing the cooler would restore the system to 100%

A refurbished hard drive (that I assume would hold all data and the Windows OS) might break, and you would lose everything that was not recently backed up to external media. You would again have to replace the hard drive and on top of that, reinstall Windows, all drivers, programs, and restore backup files (if any). It would take a long time to get back to 100%, if ever, considering you may have lost personal/configuration files.

Personally, I'd never buy refurbished storage drives unless they were in addition to other drives on a system, and used only for games maybe or backed up to those other drives frequently (or daily).

Better than a "used" drive, but still - put in the few extra dollars and buy a brand new drive.
