Don’t believe the new hype!

If you’re in the market for some IT hardware, you might have seen a lot of talk about buying new to ensure your tech is Windows 11 ready. We’ve been speaking to many customers in recent weeks, who are very surprised when we tell them that a refurbished device is capable of running the latest OS – and that they don’t need to buy a new machine.

You can be Win11 ready with refurbished

Aside from the usual concerns about refurbished tech, such as performance and quality (which we’ll address later), let’s focus on Win11.

Any 8th Gen or newer Intel processor will allow you to update to Windows 11 from Windows 10…yes, we’ll say that again for the doubters….any 8th Gen or newer Intel processor will allow you to update to Windows 11 from Windows 10.

For example, this Grade A, Dell Latitude 7290, 8th gen i5 processor, is running Windows 11. We have these machines in stock now, at prices that will save you around 40% versus buying a new laptop. So not only can you save money, but you can also do your bit for the planet by not buying new.

Other refurbished myths not to believe

Over the years (over 25 of them!), we’ve heard every reason under the sun as to why buying refurbished tech isn’t a good idea.

“It’s unreliable”

“It won’t last”

“We just buy new, ok?”

“I can afford new, so why shouldn’t I?”

“It’s too complicated to buy refurbished”

“Buying new is quicker”

“Refurbished tech doesn’t do what I need it to”

We could go on, but you get the idea. Every concern we’ve ever heard is a myth or an excuse. The fact is, BSI Kitemark Certified refurbished IT hardware from Renewed will run the latest software and perform the tasks that the vast majority of organisations need. Data management? Internal and external communications? Running software? Security management? All of these tasks rely on high-performance IT, and that’s what our tech delivers – at a fraction of the price of buying new.

Our refurbished tech is BSI Certified, giving you complete peace of mind that our quality is independently assured. We include a 12-month return to base warranty, the same as you’d receive if you bought new. And our customer service team are on hand to help and advise should you have any issues.

The only thing we’re willing to admit is different when you buy refurbished kit from us is…you’ll miss out on that fleeting ‘fresh out of the box, peel off the film’ moment. Is it really worth it though? The extra expense and the cost to the planet, when a refurbished machine can do the job?

We don’t think so. Think sustainable. Think Renewed.
