Choosing refurbished instead of new machines feeds into the circular economy; reducing the need to deplete the earth’s finite recourses. The life cycle of most laptops and desktops can be extended from 3 years up to around 10 years by refurbishing, significantly reducing the constant need for new hardware and the volume of e-waste produced each year.
It’s easy to choose new equipment and assume that’s the best decision for your needs. But have you considered the true purpose of the IT equipment you need? When we talk to our customers to identify the right machines and specifications, we find it’s rarely the latest generation that is needed. The first step in purchasing IT equipment should be to define its purpose; with that information, we can work with you to provide high-quality, high-performance machines – with an average cost saving of 40%
