It is good for your wallet – When buying a refurbished computer you can pick up a current or slightly older model PC or Laptop for a fraction of the price of new. With the same warranties offered, you will find that ex-corporate devices are made to a higher quality than brand new home user devices. Desktop PCs include a 3 year warranty, Laptops a 1 year warranty.
No loss of performance – For 99% of usage, i.e. using the Internet and Microsoft Office, a state of the art computer is not required. Most modern programs will work on PCs and Laptops that are up to 10 years old. So, save yourself the money.
Good for the environment – Every time you buy a refurbished PC or Laptop that is pre-owned you save the following resources in a new one being built and the old one being scrapped.
