The annual cost of replacing old PCs and laptops can take up a large chunk of any IT budget. With lots of other demands on this budget e.g. IT support costs, software licences, broadband and phone call costs etc. new ways of saving money without compromising on quality or performance should always be considered. One idea that is rapidly growing in popularity is to replace computers that have reached their end of their life with newly refurbished ones. This is a lot less costly option than investing in brand new ones.
As long as you use a reputable supplier, purchasing refurbished PCs for your business can save a lot of money. It can also be a more cost-effective purchase because you will get better value for money i.e. PCs with a higher specification. In addition, PCs built to a higher specification will perform much better during their lifecycle and often last longer before needing to be replaced. Finally and perhaps most importantly, buying refurbished helps reduce the increasing mountain of electronic waste and is good for the environment. It is easy to see why many businesses that were originally resistant to the idea are now seeing refurbished PCs as a clear win-win situation.
