Is a refurbished Asus G75VX worth it?


I'm just curious if it's worth it to buy refurbed G75VX that's currently on Groupon for $890 (~$950 after tax) (

I know it doesn't have Haswell and the GPU isn't currently the fastest and I'd have to buy an SSD, but would it be worth it at $950 or are there better deals out there?

And obviously this would be used for gaming and normal day-to-day tasks (basically a desktop replacement for the time being).
