Refurbished Laptop Versus New Laptop


Refurbished Laptop Versus New Laptop

Most of us would like a brand spanking new laptop straight out of the box and there are advantages to be had but there are many advantages to buying a used refurbished laptop.

Advantages to buying a used laptop


1) Cost 

Cost is the obviously one of the main advantages of buying used. A typical used notebook can be bought at less than £100 whereas the cheapest new laptop start from around £200 for something very basic and rising quite steeply for a well specified machine. The money saved here can remain in your bank account or be used for other life essentials. Then if you choose between new and used at the same price, buying used would enable you to get many more features than buying new such as a fester processor, larger screen or an SSD drive.

2) Quality of the laptop
Buying second hand on a budget enables you to buy a better quality laptop. Many of the used laptops in the market are ex business machines. Businesses tend to buy well made laptops from the top manufacturer such as HP, Lenovo and Dell. The models they purchase are the top models for example the Elitebook, Probook, ThinkPad and Latitude. These compare well to many of the new consumer laptops out there which don't have the same build quality and are not designed to last as long. Therefore buying one of these ex corporate laptops although they may be a few years old normally the build quality is much higher than buying a new laptop from the manufacturers cheaper offerings.

3) Your requirements
The majority of customers do not require the latest laptop for their needs. A refurbished used laptop maybe around three years old but will still run the latest Operating System and Office software well. So if you main uses will be browsing the internet, email, word processing and speadsheets it will work just fine for you. In fact an older machine fitted with an SSD drive and a Core i5 processor is likely to run a lot faster with quicker boot up times than an entry level new laptop


4) Environment
Many customers are concerned about the impact on the environment of th glut of consumer electronics we desire. Buying a used rather than new prolongs the life of a laptop which may otherwise be disposed of. Disposing of a laptop can put dangerous metals and chemicals into the environment. There is alos an environmental cost for buying a new laptop as this has to be manufactured using new resources.
