At System Liquidation, we understand that K-12 schooling districts are struggling with increasing demands for quality education despite budget shortfalls. That’s why we’ve been working to provide reliable tools and electronics to enhance modern education while keeping costs low.
Find out how you can procure the best laptops for students without cutting heavily into the school budget by jumping into the refurbished market.
Schools today suffer from restrictive budgets and often struggle to modernize their curriculum. To prepare tomorrow’s citizens for the future, we need to focus on providing the latest in educational tools and methods. The use of computers in the classroom is a natural consequence, as it:
- Introduces K-12 students to the Digital Age
- Gives them a head start in computer literacy, which will help them in numerous career paths, even those outside of technology
- Unlocks a whole new world of accessible, online education
Better technologies used in the classroom result in better student outcomes, accelerated skill development, and a more modern ecosystem at school. However, you’ll need the right tools for the job, which can include laptops, desktop computers, and various peripherals and accessories. The main question is, how can school districts afford this cost?
Purchasing the latest cutting-edge devices at full price is out of reach for most K-12 districts, and most school administrators would agree that saving money whenever possible is ideal so that funding can be better spent elsewhere.
Likewise, buying used electronics comes with too much risk. Warranties are unlikely to be available, and you might not know whether a device comes with defects until it’s too late. You also miss out on having a reputable, certified vendor to back up your purchase.
Instead of buying new or used, buying refurbished products is the answer. You get the peace of mind and quality assurance of buying new, with the cost benefits of buying used when you go the refurbished route.
In addition to being budget-friendly, purchasing refurbished computers is also another step towards becoming a more environmentally-conscious school, as it cuts down on electronic waste.
And with reputable suppliers like System Liquidation serving school districts specifically, it’s now possible to buy refurbished computers in bulk to serve those large K-12 student bodies.
The Unique Needs of the Educational Market
System Liquidation has worked with many industries in addition to education, and we know the unique requirements of businesses in each market.
Governments, for instance, need to handle a large amount of data everyday through digital means and need to make quick decisions to keep up with modern laws and economies. The healthcare industry needs to focus on information security and communication amongst staff and physicians. Nonprofits rely on reliability for an affordable price.
But education is in a special environment, where up-to-date tools are paramount for providing students with relevant education that will serve them well in the future. In the face of stringent budgets, we’re here to help them succeed.

We’re Certified to Serve the Education Market
A certified vendor can be trusted to provide quality computers and components. What certifications does System Liquidation boast?
Responsible Recycling Practices Standard (R2 Certification)
System Liquidation’s dedication to becoming a “green” company and empowering school districts to do the same starts with its R2 certification.
We like to accept your old technology to recycle it properly, and you get some value out of the transaction as well when we offer you a technological refresh with our products.
Electronics can be a challenge to recycle given that they could contain hazardous chemicals like lead and cadmium. An R2 certification means that we have a developed framework for recycling electronics that has worker health and safety as well as information security concerns in mind.
The NCPA is one of the largest purchasing cooperatives working with the national government to reduce the cost of goods and services. The agency consults with the public agencies in each state to leverage the collective purchasing power.
By joining the NCPA, System Liquidation is able to take advantage of cooperative purchasing contracts and other procurement resources to purchase high-quality electronics at reasonable prices. We’re passing on those savings to all the school districts we work with.
The ALJP describes itself as “a consortium of educational institutions for the purchase of technology.” Its main website lists out all the contracts it’s made and offers plenty of documentation and resources for vendors and schools alike.
