I want to buy my husband a new laptop so I started shopping around on eBay and the really nice ones that are within my budget say open box, what does that mean?

Open box means the package is opened. It's not strictly second-hand. See, what happens on eBay (and countless other online shopping portals) is that sometimes a customer purchases a product (laptop in this case), opens the box/seal, and doesn't like the function, so he/she places a return request.

eBay then checks if the product is working as new. If it is, it will re-sell (or re-list) it with the open box tag instead of returning the piece to the seller or manufacturer. Discounts are usually included for open box items, but you're not getting a second-hand item or malfunctioning item. It's just as new.
