And because we guarantee these computers will perform like new at a fraction of the price, they make an excellent choice for anyone who wants to save money while still getting top-of-the-line performance from their laptop or tablet computer

Factory Configured

Factory configured means that the laptop is set up to work straight out of the box. This includes setting up your user account, installing drivers, installing anti-virus software and so on.

That means you don't have to spend time configuring it yourself or waiting for software updates to download and install. It also means there's less chance of encountering problems with devices not working properly together or incompatibilities with preinstalled hardware.

Environmental Stewardship

Refurbished rugged laptops are a great choice for the environmentally conscious, because they help reduce waste by keeping equipment in use longer. They also support sustainable manufacturing processes, which use less energy and materials than traditional approaches.

In addition to reducing waste and conserving resources, refurbished rugged laptops can also help companies achieve their sustainability goals by keeping vital technology running smoothly while reducing costs associated with purchasing new equipment.
