Why Buy Refurbished?
What does "Refurbished" mean?
- Checked and tested through the quality assurance process by our technicians.
- We offer a range of stock, from new (Grade A), to the more used models (lower cosmetic condition, still performant).
- They’ll have some return to base (RTB) warranty with us, for your peace of mind.
Quality, for Less
Tested, by our technicians
Every laptop will be tested for common tasks such as web browsing run, stress tests, etc - to ensure that our customers have a smoother experience when they receive it.
Wide availability of products
Buying refurbished means that you’ll often have access to the previous models, which will often still be performance competitive with the latest range. Sometimes newer generations could have fewer features in order to be thinner & lighter (e.g. fewer ports, such as Ethernet ports). Between the old and new, there’s definitely something refurbished that’s right for you.
The latest models do gradually become available within a few months of release. These could be the unboxed / customer returned unit (which has since successfully passed the QA checks & has been marketed for re-sell).
Easily repaired again
Availability of components can also often be much better for refurbished products. That’s because they’ve been produced for longer and more of their components are likely to be in circulation. Refurbishers tend to offer products that they know they can repair if something does need attentions.
Get a rich set of features
Similarly, the business & workstation range which we offer, are often designed by the manufacturer for a longer life-cycle (e.g. 3-5 years). Whereas buying new (with the same budget), could mean that you might be restricted to a lower-end consumer laptop (typically built for 1-2 years of use).
The Greener option
Warranty, on our products
While new customers might be apprehensive in buying a refurbished laptop, it’s important to keep in mind that refurbishers aren’t just re-sellers; the systems are tested and repaired to ensure that they will function well. Keep the usual buyer wisdom in mind and buying refurbished will be a great option for buying a computer.
