New vs Refurbished

In this modern day and age we have become accustomed to having the newest technology, but is this always the best way to go? We are always drawn to the latest and greatest but did you know there are other options out there. It’s worth knowing that you can get great deals on refurbished devices at the same time as being only a model or two behind the most current device. With these devices being lower in cost than new, you can usually afford to get a higher specification device at a similar cost to a low-mid range device brand new.

The Benefits of Refurbished

  • More machine for your money – You can get a higher spec machine than your budget may allow if your buying new. Also adding in extra features for example TPM chips for hardware data encryption on laptops. Not only are you benefiting from a faster and better spec machine but you can also then possibly afford to upgrade to a solid state hard drive for even more speed.
  • Help saving the environment – When millions of electronic devices; laptops, smartphones and pc’s are replaced for a newer model the old ones have to go somewhere. There must be literally millions of these old devices tucked away in cupboards or draws doing nothing. They are just waiting to go to recycling or even worse dumped somewhere to leach toxic chemicals into the soil. Buying refurbished devices means giving that device a longer life and doing our bit to reduce the huge amount of e-waste that is growing over time.

The benefits are great but you do need to consider the risks of refurbished. Some people and companies will just sell refurbished devices with little to no testing and no warranty or even OS (for example Windows 7). You need to make sure you choose a reputable company when purchasing your devices and ensure that they are willing to provide a warranty on the machine should any parts fail.

We believe in reducing e-waste at the same time as providing high quality refurbished devices that will perform for years to come.
