The refurbished computer market can be an excellent choice if properly researched, and purchased from a high-quality company with a great track record. Here are five good reasons to consider going refurbished with your next IT equipment purchase:
1. You’re on a Budget
Of course! This is the big one. It’s estimated that you can save an average of 25% to 50% off the retail price when you go with refurbished computers. The savings can really add up, especially with larger purchases.
2. You Don’t Need the Latest and Greatest in Computers
Many businesses and applications don’t require the latest, cutting-edge technology or performance. If you don’t require graphics intensive uses, for instance, there is no need to be spending the money on the latest hardware when that is not where your business needs lie.
3. Refurbished Computers are Environmentally Responsible
Reusing is even better than recycling. There’s no need to dismantle a perfectly good computer that still has years of productive life remaining. It’s a good thing to do from both an economic and an environmental standpoint.
4. You’re Standardized Already
Your systems may very well be functioning wonderfully on a previous model, no longer being produced as new. Whether you’re happy and efficient on a different operating system, or are beholden to applications that no longer function on new models, it doesn’t always pay to have to upgrade all your software to match your new hardware. The expense and staff time can be appreciable, and you may very well be able to find the models that fit your software usage in the refurbished market.
5. A Refurbished Computer Can be Like New
Refurbishing can restore the computer to near new, with little to no noticeable difference in appearance or performance levels. A good refurbishing company will also guarantee their work with a warranty or quality guarantee.
