Refurbished Desktop Computers
(or Laptops) If...
1) You Prefer Hi-tech To
many, the hunt for refurbished desktop computers or even used laptops
all about saving money. Suppliers have lower costs to recoup for marketing glitz,
store overhead, or high sales commissions. So the savings on almost all reconditioned
PC equipment are significant.
also save because margins are razor thin. Refurbished desktops can be had
for as low as $200, and used laptops as low as $500.
few suppliers are relatively small operations, and they have to keep costs on
used computer equipment low to compete with the advertising and glitz of new models.
there are great deals on new PCs too. But remember that the new model loses a
good chunk of value as soon as it leaves the new PC showroom.
You Don't Mind Buying More Than You Need
Recycling Refurbished Desktop Computers Is A Bad Thing
you already own a desktop that you are ready to replace, what are your options
? You can sell it, or throw if out.
you can recycle, and keep those perfectly good components that still have plenty
of life in them. That keyboard and mouse will fit anything you buy. Monitors outlast
most computers, and have a much longer life before becoming obsolete.
items can add $300 to the cost of a new system, and most
used computers do not come with these peripherals.
If you don't need them, don't pay for
them. Use what you have, then take that $300 and get yourself some new
software or bigger monitor.
what if you need to upgrade ? You can save even more money with great deals on
used parts. Why not refurbish your desktop yourself
? Its easy to fine a name brand 15Ē monitor plus mouse and keyboard for about
Don't Mind Paying For Software You Donít Need Or Want
Iíve said elsewhere that your software
needs should determine your hardware choice. If you're shopping for reconditioned
computers, you probably already have an Operating System and office suite that
meets your needs. It will more than likely fit an older used laptop or desktop.
new systems come with bundles of "free" software that you will delete
or never use. Still, the cost of that ďfreeĒ software is built into the system
itís an OEM version. OEM software is legal and performs just as well,
is the retailer not the manufacturer, thatís must support OEM software. Can your
desktop PC retailer do that?
is usually sparse, and you don't always get the original CDs.
pre-owned desktop PCs keep costs down
by leaving the software out.
advice? Keep the software you already have. Upgrade if necessary. Get a refurbished
desktop computer. Load it, and go.
Don't Care About Getting A Deeper Knowledge Of Your PC
is no better way to learn than reconditioning your own desktop computer. Don't
worry if youíre a techno-novice. Get a basic system, then buy some used components,
and add only what you need and are comfortable with. Soon you'll have your own
'new' rebuilt desk top computer.
