The last 10 years have not been so kind to school budgets. With the growing population and economic recessions that the country has suffered, the technology outlook for schools is not so great. Some schools opt out of technology upgrades with the budget stretched thin to cover the needs of the students.
Technology tracts for schools are looked at as inessential but with the turn of the century, it looks more and more evident that kids nowadays have to get educated on technology, basic programming languages and general computing to give them a fighting chance for their future. Many teachers are rallying to get more technology to their students. Many of them have found the perfect solution: refurbished computers.
Refurbished computers can answer the needs of the school to be within budget and at the same time, the needs of the students to be on par with other more financially advantaged schools. Not only that, it is ecologically sustainable.
With budgets at a high-time low, refurbished computers make one-to-one computing for students a reality. However, the stigma attached to “refurbished” is preventing many from reaping the benefits. A refurbished computer costs a fraction of that of a brand new one. At the price of one new computer, you could actually get two to four depending on the model that you choose. Many companies provide warranties covering up to 4 years. This doesn’t mean that your refurbished computer will break down easily. These warranties are provided to give buyers more confidence in buying and move away from the stigma.
The machines that refurbished companies provide are not outdated models. With the way technology trend turnover is today, the machines that refurbished companies are technically just a few months behind the latest models. Sometimes, they even have refurbished computers with the same models as the latest ones.
