The students and staff at The Oldershaw School are enjoying their new machines, which are facilitating and supporting pupils’ learning journeys.
“Everyone actually thinks they’re brand-new machines from Dell because the quality, speed and features are that good,” added Keith. “I think we need to raise awareness of the role refurbished systems can play in the education sector, especially given the huge cost savings they provide which can free up the budget for other resources needed elsewhere in the school or college.”
In addition to providing a significant cost saving to our clients – often freeing up budget to be spend in other important areas – choosing refurbished IT equipment is also having a positive impact on the environment. Each year, millions of laptops, tablets and desktop computers are thrown away- creating huge landfill and e-waste issues around the globe. The current low levels of recycling mean that tonnes of materials such as copper, silver and gold are lost, and the earth’s finite resources are unnecessarily depleted.
Choosing refurbished IT equipment, the lifetime of a unit can be extended to 36-months, and to up to 10 years; meaning less waste and a reduction on the environmental impact.
