Buying a used computer can often be a cost-effective alternative to buying the latest, most expensive model. However, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind…
Firstly, you need to know what you’re going to use it for. For example, think about the applications that you will need to run and the specifications that those applications require. Make sure that the computer you buy is refurbished so that it’s running like new and able to function as you need it to.
Secondly, you need to consider what extra costs there might be in terms of upgrades and licenses.
Buying a refurbished computer from a reputable retailer often means that this is not a concern, and that there is a warranty in place.
One way of satisfying all the relevant considerations is to buy an ex-government computer. These computers are designed for business use and to last for many years. However, they are replaced every three or so years. This means that you can get a top quality machine that has hadn’t much use for a bargain price.
Make sure that you consult a reputable firm when looking at buying an ex-government computer.
That way, you can be sure that the computer is furbished and ‘like new’ with a clean hard drive, newly installed operating system, and sometimes a new mouse or keyboard. It’s a good idea to go to firms such as www.thelaptopman.com.au who regularly stock these machines.
