Many people in the market for a new laptop overlook the benefits of buying a previously owned commercial grade one. It is logical to zero in on new laptops and compare price and reliability. However, RB’s Computer Services sells previously owned commercial grade Lenovo HP and some Dell laptops that truly give brand new laptops a run for the money in both price and reliability, with some added incentives. In this blog I’ll share 7 benefits to buying a previously owned commercial grade laptop from RB’s Computer Service.
Most of our previously owned Dell, Lenovo, and HP computers start at $350. In additions to price, some added benefits include:
- Our laptops are commercial units not consumer scaled down units.
- Many laptops we supply have docking port options so that you can purchase a dock and use this laptop as a regular replacement for a tower.
- All laptops are data scrubbed before we sell them.
- Because we sell commercial grade laptops, they are not pre-loaded with junk software.
All of our laptop come with a 30 day warranty.
Almost all of the laptops we sell come with Solid State Drives (Learn more about SSD) in them.
Windows 10 Included
Our laptops come with Windows 10 Pro version vs Windows 10 “Home” version installed. For many Windows 7 users, upgrading to Windows 10 was a hassle. But with our laptops, Windows 10 Pro is included to avoid the hassle. We also offer options to set up Microsoft Office 365.
Good for the Environment
Buying a previously owned commercial grade laptop offers a two for one benefit for the environment. On the one hand, a perfectly good laptop is being placed back into service when you buy it instead of being destroyed, and RB’s Computer Service will recycle your old desktops, towers, and laptops for FREE! *Other items will be charged a minimal fee if you want data destroyed.*
