How You Can Make Sure that You are Getting a Great Deal with a Remanufactured Laptop?
More businesses today are choosing to buy used equipment – and this holds true not only for used furniture and office chairs, used printers, and even used workstations – it also holds for laptops and computers. Remanufactured laptops are all the rage nowadays as they have proven to be a worthy choice for business entrepreneurs and owners who would like to save money yet benefit from a great machine with all the features they expect. But if you are thinking of buying remanufactured or refurbished laptops for your staff and are still not quite sure about your decision, here’s how you can make sure that you are getting a great deal.
Know the benefits
First of all, you may already know that with a remanufactured laptop, you can save a lot of money. As a matter of fact, with remanufactured laptops, you can save up to 70% off the price of a new laptop. But this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality, either. When we say ‘remanufactured’, this basically means that the laptop has been checked and inspected by qualified technicians, and it undergoes a complete recovery and disassembly process to make it as good as new as well.
This recovery and disassembly process includes the complete elimination of any defects by the repair or replacement of obsolete or worn modules and components, and it also includes the revival of equipment so that it can reach (and often even exceed) its original level of performance. The chassis or outer casing of the laptop is also fully restored and resprayed, and the keyboards are also renewed to have even better lettering than the original. What’s more, remanufactured laptops for sale from reputable suppliers come with an authentic Microsoft OS with a certificate of authenticity, which means that the laptop’s users can take advantage of updates, new features, and downloads.
But of course, just like with any major purchase for your business, especially if you are buying in big volume, there are some factors you need to think about as well. Below are a few:
Determine the policy for returns
Return policies are also available for remanufactured laptops, and most suppliers offer a return policy of 14 days, which is a standard. Before you purchase your remanufactured laptops, make sure to confirm the return policy with the provider just so you are sure of the details in case you need to make use of the policy.
Check the warranty
Some providers and suppliers only offer about 90 days for the warranty, and there are some who offer warranties for as little as 30 days. But if you do your research, you can actually find retailers who can provide you with more extended warranties. In particular, look for a retailer who can give you a two to three-year ‘fetch and replace’ warranty, which is a great deal.
Know which brands to choose
Whilst there are now many laptop brands from which you can choose, there’s still something to be said about brands that are reputable and which everyone knows. Check if the retailer can provide you with well-known brands that you can trust, such as Dell, Lenovo, and HP.
