As well as offering a significant cost saving of up to 50% versus new machines, buying refurbished IT plays an important role in other ways. Many organisations upgrade their IT provision every 36-months, which generates tonnes of e-waste and landfill around the world. By choosing to buy refurbished machines, the lifespan of a desktop, tablet or laptop can be extended making it fit for purpose for up to 10 years.
Sadly, each year millions of units are thrown away without parts being stripped for recycling, meaning valuable copper, silver and gold are lost – putting more strain on the finite resources of these valuable materials. At Renewed, our mission is to educate and help schools, colleges, universities, charities, healthcare providers, businesses – everyone! – to understand the financial and environmental benefits of buying refurbished IT.
“They look and feel brand new, and our staff and pupils have all been raving about them, our investment has already paid off, saving us a huge amount of money as our budgets are increasingly squeezed. We cannot fault the systems, and still can’t believe the like for like comparison between Renewed’s refurbished systems and the brand-new computers.”
