Top Tips for Buying Refurbished Computers and Laptops

Let’s face it: technology can be expensive. Even if you don’t need the most cutting-edge devices on the market, the price can easily add up if you’re buying reliable machines for work or school in large quantities.

The problem is that purchasing new desktops and laptops is out of the budget for most businesses, and the used market is often risky. How can you trust someone you don’t know to sell you a fully functional device with no defects that could compromise on your work?

What if we told you that you could save almost half on the cost of a brand new device while still receiving a quality product? Let’s talk about refurbishing and why you should consider it, whether you’re an IT department head looking to procure some new equipment at a reasonable price or just a regular employee in need of a few wholesale refurbished laptops for the office.

What Does “Refurbishing” Mean?

First, let’s define what exactly a refurbished electronic device entails. A computer that’s marked as refurbished is one that’s:

  • Been returned by a previous customer before for any reason.
  • Has been sent back to the seller or manufacturer, which has then cleaned and fixed up the device in order to sell it again.
  • Is sold at a reduced price despite being functionally identical to a new unit.

A refurbished desktop, for instance, will have all the working components within it, though it might not include accessories like a monitor, a keyboard, a mouse, or even an operating system (though, depending on your choice of refurbishing service, they could be included in the transaction as well).

Why Go Refurbished?

There are many reasons why refurbishing is the way to go, especially if you need a large number of machines for either school or work purposes.

  • Price: The obvious benefit of going refurbished is the price, which is considerably lower than buying an equivalent machine brand new.
  • Quality control: Because a refurbished product has been cleaned, fixed, and approved by a reputable service provider (or, in some cases, the original manufacturer), you have assurance that what you’re buying is a quality, fully functional unit. The used market for electronics is notorious for hidden defects and faulty machines that don’t appear to have any problems until after you’ve bought them.
  • The best of both worlds: You essentially get the best of both worlds here; there’s the lower price of the used market combined with the quality control of buying new.
  • Going “green”: The refurbished market is good for the environment, as it prevents machines from being thrown into e-waste landfills. Electronic waste can contain hazardous chemicals and materials like mercury and lead. And most customers appreciate it when the businesses they work with show a dedication to protecting the environment.

The only caveat is that a refurbished desktop is likely to include older generation hardware, but technology has progressed to the point where most specifications are more than enough for most business use. Even “power users” like gamers can still appreciate the performance you can get out of a graphics processor from one or two years ago.

How to Look for a Qualified Refurbisher

Now that we know that the refurbished market is the ideal choice for IT departments, school districts, and working professionals alike, we can now lead into the question of where to buy refurbished computers from.

Your choice of service provider will impact the experience you receive. We recommend sticking with reputable refurbishing companies with a track record of positive customer reviews. Some specific things to look out for include:

  • An ideal price: Just because a price seems low, doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a good deal. Look at what the price of a brand new unit of the same type is and check whether you’re actually saving enough to make the transaction worth it. Double check coupon codes online as well to see where the deal stands.
  • Warranty: Factor the length and extent of the warranty into the deal as well. A strong warranty will ensure that you get long-term value out of your purchase. Should any technical failures or physical accidents occur, you want to know whether you’ll be protected. Even refurbished PCs often come with limited warranties, such as the 1-year warranties offered by System Liquidation.
  • Customer support: And finally, never skimp out on technical support. Being able to contact your service provider for instant assistance should you run into any trouble does wonders for your peace of mind.

With so many refurbishing service providers out there, it can be daunting to find one that you can trust. That’s why System Liquidation offers its services to schools, businesses, and individuals. Whether you need laptops, desktops, accessories, or special units like all-in-ones, our catalog of refurbished units will ensure that you receive brand new quality at a significantly lower cost.
