Refurbished computer at 123PCSolutions

refurbished computerFrom enlarging your work space to changing your old system, there are many reasons to purchase a new computer. But we’ve all purchased something expensive and on getting home, finding that something is not right. Maybe it is dented or scratched or lack feature you desperately needed or it doesn’t work properly. The next thing is to return it.

When it comes to buying tech products like laptops and desktops, and even phones, printers and more, chances are that what you returned will end up on the shelves (as a refurbished PC) if it is not beyond repair.

Sometimes, you may not budget for a new computer, so buying a refurbished PC may be the right option. A refurbished computer is not only budget-friendly but also environmentally friendly. You can get a refurbished computer at 30 to 50 percent less than the new PC, but the price shouldn’t be the only factor.

What is a refurbished computer?

A refurbished computer means the system:

  • Came from a canceled order
  • Failed to meet the manufacturer quality standard and was rebuilt
  • Was returned by a customer and can’t be sold as a new PC

Reasons why you should buy a computer

#1. You didn’t budget for a new computer

If buying a new computer is not in your budget, you might want to consider a refurbished PC since the price is always lower than the price of the new computer. When you purchase a refurbished computer, you buy yourself a durable PC with higher-quality components that will last for many years. Of course, it is a win-win for you.

#2. You want to upgrade your operating system

Now that Microsoft is no longer supporting Windows XP, those using Windows XP are faced with the reality of upgrading their operating system if they don’t want to be exposed to viruses and hackers. If you use an old operating system that is no longer supported and you are on a budget, it makes sense to consider a refurbished computer.

#3. Refurbished PC comes with a warranty

A warranty always comes with a refurbished PC, giving you a peace of mind when you buy one. You hardly have a problem with your refurbished computer since they are always thoroughly checked, but if any problems pop up, we can quickly resolve it for you.

#4. You want to upgrade your business’s PC in an eco-friendly way

There is some debate about whether refurbished PCs are eco-friendly than new PCs or not. Although new PCs use less energy than refurbished PCs, it takes more energy to build new computers, while the refurbished computer ensures they won’t end up in a landfill.

What to consider before purchasing a computer

Before you start shopping for a refurbished PC, figure out what you need. You already know that if you are a gamer, you need a different specification compared to someone who will be using the PC for surfing the net only. And unless you are a tech-savvy, you need an expert to help you select the best refurbished computer for your needs.

The major online computer retailers always have a part of their store devoted to selling refurbished PCs. Here is a few of them:

  • Dell outlet
  • Apple store
  • HP outlet
  • Lenovo Outlet Store
  • And much more

Of course, refurbished laptops are reliable and durable. If you are looking to buy a refurbished
