Refurb Computers; Shining The Light On 3

Posted in News by PC Renewed on September 05th 2018
Some people feel uncomfortable with the idea of purchasing a refurbished laptop or desktop computer; however there are numerous advantages of refurbished computers.

If you are considering purchasing a reconditioned or rebuilt computer, but you’re unsure about the quality of a refurbished desktop computer, here’s a list of 3 myths about refurbished PCs, with explanations of why they’re wrong.

Shining The Light On Myths About Refurb Computers

There are numerous myths regarding computers which have been refurbished, for example:

‘computer refurbs are slow’, ‘there’s no difference between used and refurbished’, and ‘you can’t get a warranty for a remodelled computer’.

However, these aren’t all necessarily true, and we’ll explain why below.

Are Refurbs Slow?

It goes without saying that as new hardware is released; computers relying on older hardware will likely be slower than computers which utilise new computer hardware. However, this does not mean that all older computers are necessarily inferior to newer computers - when refurbished by a professional, a refurbished PC could function as well as if not better than a new out of the box PC with the same specifications.

Also, it is important to remember that, unless you are searching for a computer for a task that requires high performance components such as gaming, music production or other complex tasks, it’s unlikely that you will need state-of-the-art equipment. This means that you could save money by choosing to purchase a computer that has been refurbished, instead of a brand new computer.

Additionally, it is worth noting that if you purchase a restored computer can still be upgraded. So if you cannot find a computer with the appropriate RAM or a sizable enough hard drive, thanks to the price savings from refurbished computers, you might still save money by purchasing a refurb and upgrading it, opposed to buying a brand new computer.

Is There A Difference Between Used And Refurbished?

Some may be concerned about the difference between a refurbished and a used computer, instead choosing to purchase a new out of the box computer. However, there is a difference between new, used, and refurbished.

With regards to a used computer, a used computer is a computer which has a previous owner. On the other hand, a refurbished laptop of desktop computer which has been refurbished by a reputable business will have been tested and verified to function correctly. Providing you with peace of mind in the knowledge that if there were any faults present from the desktop’s or laptop’s previous owner, you can be fairly confident that those faults no longer exist after being refurbished.
