Technology always has this habit of getting more and more advanced, year in, year out. It often means that we’re left hankering for new versions of our existing tech, and such upgrades always seem to occur towards the end of the year – when, of course, Christmas is rolling around. While new tech is great and all, existing PCs and computing standards can be just as effective – and, moreover, considerably cheaper than brand new out of the packet. Refurbished tech is the term used for computing and devices which are, essentially, used – but have been brought back up to full speed and power to be able to compete with new items on the shelf.
But why go for a PC that’s used? Won’t it be slow, sluggish, or unable to complete many of the tasks you expect of it? Think again. A refurbished unit is one which, while second-hand, is given a complete makeover – an audit, of sorts. Refurbished PCs are tested and re-tested constantly to ensure that they are at a level of speed and performance that can rightfully compete with technology which may come factory sealed otherwise. Refurbished units do the job just as well as new units – and when it comes to saving a little bit of cash this festive season, you could do far worse than opt for a refurb model as opposed to a shiny new piece of tech straight out of the box.
Refurbished tech is more affordable because, as it stands, they aren’t new. That’s all there is to it. Tech that has been refurbished has been evaluated and brought back up to code so that they work just as well as newer models – meaning that, depending on what exactly it may be you’re looking for, you could easily go away with that smashing new PC you’ve been looking for at a considerably cut price. For those of us looking for Christmas gifts, too, it’s a win-win situation. If you’ve been asked for a certain PC – and condition hasn’t been specified – you can easily purchase a refurbished model without worrying about its performance in the weeks and months to come. If anything, it will stand up to newer models that cost considerably more. For your wallet, it just makes sense!
Tech CPR specialise in new and refurbished tech of all shapes and sizes, specialising in PCs, smartphones and more besides – and we’ll always let you have a test drive of any refurbished items before you take them away. You’ll be stunned at just how well these nearly-new standards perform – why go for a new model when a much-loved and revamped edition works just as well? Your needs may vary, but for our money, refurbished tech does just the job.
Don’t go throwing cash around on new tech this Christmas – see if you can get presents on a refurbished basis for less! Come and see us at Tech CPR in Chesterfield, call 01246 452319 or drop us an email to learn more.
