There is no difference, internally, between a refurb and new Kindle, whether its a DX or other model.
Hope this helps.
Well, price difference itself is an indicator of some internal quality. I would not like to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the truth might be on your side, but I reserve my stand that there might be some differnce in the two kinds of kindle and their performance etc.
