Refurbished computers are essential to saving money on your IT infrastructure and allow businesses access to top of the range desktops and laptops for less.

At Renewed, we have over 20 years of experience in computer refurbishment and are proud of our extensive quality system, the Q20 Promise that guarantees every aspect of refurbishment has been addressed to the highest quality standards.

This is why a computer from us can be bought with complete peace of mind and total confidence. Fully refurbished machines are covered by a 12-month warranty as standard, or you can choose to upgrade to a 36-months warranty.

Why do computers need refurbishment?

Most computers restored to like-new condition only have minor software or hardware issues, sometimes through use, accidental damage, or sometimes from a manufacturing flaw at the factory where it was produced.

Common issues also arise from cyber hacks, old software, and overheated systems. To prevent such issues, install updates as necessary and turn off your machine rather than leaving it on standby constantly.

What is our refurbishment process?

We run a full diagnostic check to ensure all issues are discovered and rectified. Our work includes the following essentials:

Core Diagnostics

Our engineers will test the motherboard, CPU, memory, hard disk drive, optical disk drive and both CPU and system fans. We use diagnostic software to run thorough tests.

Cable and Battery Tests

We run a Portable Appliance Test (PAT) to ensure all the power supply electrics work for charging and that the charge is correct. A leakage test and functional tests look at issues that can’t be picked up by the human eye. New batteries are installed and checked.

Security Updates

We apply all of the most recent security updates and wipe all passwords and settings so the machine reverts back to its default state.

Hard Drive Wiped and Tested

We use a powerful application to totally wipe the hard drive and memory so no data will exist when you buy the computer. This ensures you have the full memory to utilise.

Throughout this process the best solutions are actioned, such as replacing parts, adding new thermal compounds, replacing case plastics and metals and air compression spring cleaning. Read more about this entire process here.

Our fully refurbished range of computers is as good as new, without the price tag.
