5 reasons why you should buy a refurbished computer

tech tips

A refurbished computer may conjure up images of a dented tower or a partially smashed screen, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Here's our roundup of the best reasons to buy a refurbished product. If you don't need the very latest specification, then a two year old machine is probably more than powerful enough.

1. It isn't brand new, but it is new enough

Although the technology is a few years old, refurbished computers go through all the same checks and tested as a new machine; the hard drive is erased, and its examined for cosmetic or internal damage. Once it meets every single requirement of a new machine, it's ready to go. They can't technically be called new, but the only difference is the label.

2. It's cheaper. A lot cheaper.

The cost can be less than half of the price of a new computer. The amount of money that you save will depend on which model you choose and the supplier that you get it from, but it will always be slightly cheaper, and often substantially cheaper than buying the same computer new. Less cash, same bit of kit.

3. You get the same software, parts and updates

Transcendit use a Microsoft Authorished refurbisher, so all of the machines come with Microsoft software installed as standard, and the entire product is refurbished using Microsoft approved parts. You receive all the same system updates and downloads that you would from a new product.

4. It helps the environment

If you're thinking about sustainability, the best thing you can do when buying electronic is look for refurbished versions. Regardless of the product, when you buy refurbished you aren't contributing to the amount of e-waste produced that ends up in landfills. Ethical tech is the best kind of tech.

5. It comes with the same great service from us

When you purchase your refurbished machine through Transcendit, we can configure it for your set up so you don't have to. We can also ship it directly to you or install it onsite for you, and every machine comes with a year warranty. No additional mess or stress necessary.
