The Difference Between Used and Refurbished Computers

Refurbished computers are not the same as used. You get the reliability of a new computer for less than half the cost!

  • We stock a dozen or so of refurbished laptops and desktops. We usually get them as a trade-in or from businesses that are upgrading their technology
  • We test computers extensively and replace failing and worn-out parts. The first thing that fails in computers is usually the hard drive - these get replaced with SSDs (Solid State Drives), making the computers run several times faster
  • We replace keyboards and batteries if necessary. Next, computers undergo thorough cleaning and rigorous hardware burn-in test.
  • If everything is OK, we reinstall the operating systems - either Windows 10 or Mac OS, depending on what kind of computer it is. We install all drivers, updates, and useful software, so the computer is ready for use!

Used Computers Pitfalls

Used computers aren't the same as refurbished! Think twice before you buy one… why are they selling it?

  • Facebook Marketplace and TradeMe are full of used computers. You may get a good deal but more often than not, you will get disappointed
  • "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten" (c) Benjamin Franklin
  • Some people just want to get rid of their junk. Perhaps, the computer is too slow, has weird issues, or had water spilled on it? Are they telling you everything? If you are a DIY type, a used computer might be fun!
  • Most used computers will have issues. You may be tempted by the low price but think about how much time and money you would waste if it needs a repair
  • Warranty? Forget about it. If the computer you bought stops working the next month, you have absolutely no recourse
