Refurbished Laptops With HDMI Or DisplayPort

At first glance they may seem like just one of the many connections that you can find at the rear of electronic devices, like laptops, televisions, gaming consoles, and other high definition devices.

  • What Is HDMI?
  • To keep things simple, HDMI is a set of rules that allows high-definition electronic devices to communicate. The name HDMI is an acronym for High-Definition Multimedia Interface. And it was created by Hitachi, Panasonic, Philips, Silicon Image, Sony, Thomson, RCA, and Toshiba, with the support of Fox, Universal Warner Bros, Disney, DirecTV, EchoStar, and CableLabs.
    This cable allows for the transfer of both uncompressed video data, and uncompressed audio data, so long as the device is HDMI-compliant. Simply put, HDMI is a replacement for the previous analog video standards, a single cable to allow for data to be transferred without signal conversion in fact there isn’t even a loss in quality when a DVI-to-HDMI adapter is used.

  • What Is A DisplayPort?
  • Often abbreviated as DP, like HDMI DP is a digital audio and video interface. DP was created by VESA and comes in two varieties, standard and mini; however despite the differences in size, both connectors transmit identical signals.
    In many ways they are similar to HDMI cables, they have similar bandwidth and converter cables are available. However, DP cables can have a much higher refresh rate, which can be as high as 60 Hz to the 24 Hz of HDMI.
    Finally, it is important to note the difference between display port and DisplayPort. In general a display port is an opening in a computer that allows another device to be connected. This includes both DisplayPort and HDMI, alongside other display ports such as DVI and VGA.

Lenovo & Hewlett Packard Laptops

With regards to the HDMI and DP equipped laptops many are either from Lenovo’s ThinkPad range or Hewlett Packard’s EliteBook range. Both brands are fantastic choices and both ranges include many superb computers ideal for both leisure and business use, such as the Lenovo t420 HDMI or the HP EliteBook 820.

For example, Hewlett Packard are a specialist in developing and manufacturing computing, data storage, and networking hardware; in fact they were at one point the world’s leading PC manufacturer. Over the years this tech company has developed and provided a wide variety of components and software for a wide range of customers including businesses, enterprises, and governments; further demonstrating the quality and trustworthiness of their products.

With regards to Lenovo ThinkPads, the ThinkPad was originally the property of the company IBM and modelled after the shape of a traditional Japanese lunchbox; however in 2005 Lenovo acquired the personal computer division of IBM. In addition to the peace of mind provided by the diverse selection of Lenovo laptops that appeal to gamers, students, businesspersons, and casual users alike, you may also be interested to learn that the only laptop certified for use on the International Space Station is a ThinkPad.

What Is The Difference Between A Refurbished And A Used Laptop?

Some people are unsure what the difference is regarding used and refurbished. A used computer is simply a computer which has had a previous owner. The device may have existing faults, it may be infected with malicious software, or it may be damaged due to being dropped.

This is why we highly advise against purchasing used laptops and desktop computers, instead we highly recommend purchasing refurbished laptops and desktops from reputable refurbishment businesses. With a refurbished laptop from PC Renewed, you can relax and enjoy peace of mind in the knowledge that the computer has been fully refurbished to the high standards of the PC Renewed team. If any faults were present from the laptop’s previous owner, you can be fairly confident that those faults no longer exist.

Here at PC Renewed, we are both an Amazon Certified Refurbisher and a Genuine Microsoft Third Party Installer. Additionally, when you purchase from our online store, you can enjoy a One Year Warranty & 30 day no quibble returns policy alongside free UK delivery on all laptops and desktop computers.

Choose From A Selection Of Different Operating Systems

Our online store includes a selection of laptops running various different operating systems, including the popular Windows 10 and Windows 7 operating systems from Microsoft.

The Windows operating system Windows 7 was released in 2009 and mainstream support ended in 2015, however extended support will only end in January of 2020. Whilst Windows 8 has been available since 2012, Windows 7 has numerous advantages when compared against the newer Windows 8. For example, with regards to 3D graphics performance, Windows 7 is slightly faster than Windows 8. Additionally, perhaps another reason why Windows 7 was a very popular choice whilst Windows 8 received criticism is the revamped user interface in Windows 8.

However, with regards to Windows 10, the latest iteration of the Windows OS is very popular indeed. The previous version (windows 8) was harshly criticised for its user interface, in particular the removal of the start menu. However, Windows 10 sees the feature return, alongside numerous other new features and a new web browser. One of the new features is the Microsoft virtual assistant, Cortana; who was named after the synthetic intelligence character Cortana from the Halo videogame series.
