A refurbished laptop (also known as a reconditioned laptop) is a used laptop that has gone through a process of refurbishment for resale. Usually these laptops come from a number of sources. The most common laptops that are put through this process are end of lease machines. Many large corporations will have all their IT equipment out on lease, usually over 2 – 5 years. Once the lease comes to an end, all equipment is replaced with new machines and all the old ones go back to the leasing company. This is where we come in. We purchase these laptops from the lease company and put them through the reconditioning process for resale.
Another common way of acquiring these laptops is from IT recycling and waste management companies. It is common for these companies to win tenders from large companies to recycle or dispose all there old computer equipment. Depending on the age and condition of this equipment they will either strip down the equipment and sell them off as parts or resell them as complete units. We also purchase some of our IT stock from liquidation sales. Often this equipment is in fantastic condition and in some cases unused.
We also have refurbished laptops that were originally customer returns. These laptops were either unwanted purchases or laptops that were shipped with some minor fault. Due to these laptops being returned, they are put through rigorous testing to diagnose any fault. Anything faulty is replaced and the laptop is refurbished back to an ‘as new’ standard. It is said that an as new laptop is usually more reliable than a standard new model as the level of testing it goes through is far more stringent than the usual manufacturer tests. Some of our stock is also ex display laptops from some leading retailers and these are also in phenomenal condition. We also have coloured lids available, this transforms a normal laptop into something more special and custom. This is great if you are looking for a pink laptop
Recently trade in laptops have come increasingly common within this sector. Some of the major retailers such as Currys and PC World now offer a trade in service. Although they usually offer a very low price for their trade in laptops, customers are keen to know a few pounds of the price of a new laptop. These trade in laptops are placed on a pallet and sold on.
Regardless of where these laptops originate from, they usually go through a very similar refurbishment process. We take pride in how rigorous our reconditioning process is. Generally once we receive a shipment of laptops they go through a visual diagnosis. Once this diagnosis has been completed a cosmetic grading is documented and a stock number assigned. The laptop is then put through a power on test. During this test the machine is checked for any missing components such as hard drive or memory and these are replaced if necessary. Once all hardware tests have been completed and the laptop has met all criteria it is passed on to the installation department for full operating system installation. The operating system installed will vary from machine to machine but the most common OS is Microsoft Windows XP closely followed by Windows 7. Once the operating system has been successfully installed, the laptop is then put through a full software operational test. We also check and test all ports such as USB, parallel, sound and mic, serial, firewire and HDMI and anything else the laptop may have. Once the laptop has passed all tests it is documented and is made available for sale. The laptop is then put through a full cosmetic cleaning and refurbishment process which includes cleaning and sterilising the keyboard, touchpad and screen. It then goes through one more final visual test and the laptop is then finally graded and then placed for sale on our website or to our wholesale and bulk buyers.
Many of our laptops are perfect for students. Our laptops are a cost effective way of getting a high standard laptop for a fraction of the price. As most of our laptops are business standard machines that come from a working environment and used by some of the biggest companies in the UK, they usually are the most reliable models made by some of the leading laptop manufacturers. Due to their reliability and performance these laptops when bought new are sold at a premium. For example a Dell D620 core 2 duo laptop when sold originally went for anything between £700 and £1200. You can now get the exact same laptop in a condition that is not far off being new for between £160 and £220. This is a fraction of the price. The dell d620. which is a laptop with serial port, and the D630 which is a laptop with firewire, and other similar makes the perfect student laptop. The saving shown above is not unique to the d620. You can make a similar saving if not better across all our lines. You will not find the same quality of laptop if you purchase pc world refurbished laptops or currys refurbished laptops. If you are looking to buy a laptop online, going for a cheap refurbished laptop is a fantastic option.
