The Xbox Series X packs more powerful components, which translate to better graphics and smoother gameplay compared to the Xbox Series S. There's also the support for higher resolutions, which is a big deal for most gamers. 

Why settle for 1440p when you can get true 4K resolution on the Xbox Series X? What's more, it blends perfectly with the best 4K TVs for gaming. You can play the best Xbox games, including Starfield, Diablo 4, Hogwarts Legacy, Lies of P, Elden Ring, and more.

And if you're having doubts about getting a refurb console, this one's Geek Squad certified, which means it has undergone vigorous testing and a cosmetic grading process to ensure that you don't encounter any serious issues.
