We’ve said it time and again—buying refurbished over brand new is the way to go, not only do you get opportunities to get your hands on business class computers but you also save a ton of money. To top all these, you help out in reducing e-waste.
So what is the future of refurbished? Are people really buying these stuff? Won’t it put manufacturers out of business and in the long run won’t we all be using outdated computers?
Business Looks Bright
Refurbished computer sales in the US have never been better, with a generation of buyers who are more tech-savvy and money-smart consumers. Add on to these environmental warriors who say no to buying brand new. The increased awareness is credited to word of mouth and the internet on how well refurbished computers can even outperform brand new.
Buying Refurbished Will Not Close Down Manufacturers
Among the sources of refurbished computers are unsold computers. Refurbished computer stores are helping out manufacturers liquidate unsold computers, so no we will not be closing down any manufacturer anytime soon.
Refurbished computers are not necessarily used computers but could also be unsold models which have met their untimely demise when a new model came out. This is sometimes due to the fact that manufacturers release models within months of each other.
Will There Be A World Filled with Outdated Computers?
My question to you is what is old? What is new? Our goal is to make sure that we are not filling up landfills faster than our environment could recover. E-waste is a major problem and by slowing down the cycle of consumerism thru reusing computers and preventing senseless wastage of unused computers, we are somehow helping secure the future for generations to come.
No, it will not be a world filled with outdated computers, but a better world filled with healthier people and a cleaner environment.
