Many think there is not much difference between a Used and a refurbished computer but there is a lot and as used computers are available at cheap rates most of the people find them an attractive option but before buying one needs to know few things first. These include; what exactly is a used computer, how it is different from a refurbished one and why one should go for it instead of a new one.
A refurbished computer is the one which was returned to the shop because of some minor or major damage, ill-functioning spare part or because somebody did not like its color or model much and returned it, while a used computer is the one which is fully functional PC resold to the dealer. Many people prefer a refurbished computer over a used one only because of the reason that a used computer is previously used by somebody but so is a refurbished computer. In most of the cases the difference between the two is that the refurbished computer is returned with in the warranty time and the used computer is resold to the dealer after the warranty time has ended. However a refurbished computer is a repaired computer and packaged after testing while a used computer is not a repaired computer. It is a fully functioning computer which a buyer can check in the shop before buying it.
Used computers are usually available at very cheap rates because of which people opt for it instead of a new computer because if you search with patience you can find a PC of a recent model and if lucky even the latest. So it would be wise of you to search for a recent model among the used computers and save money to spend over other things. This would be better than buying a new computer only.
It may be difficult to find warranties on used computers as most of the dealers do not accept a used computer after 15 days and buyers may have to directly deal with the manufacturer for spare parts also. For this reason many of the used computer buyers develop basic computer repair skills because of which they face no big problem trouble shooting them but so do buyers of new computers in order to upgrade their PC handily when in need. After all saving money on the used computer is lot better than paying premiums on the new and also it is not necessary that you will face a problem with your PC because one checks it properly before buying it or has the dealer’s word for it incase of buying online as at Electro Computer Warehouse.
Another option that is available with most of the used computer is Restore Disk. The restore disk is used when you need to format the system. When the system is formatted it restores the original or default settings. Though the changes you made to these settings earlier are erased but it is lot better than having nothing. Do request for it when you buy a used computer because most of the dealers are accustomed to such requests.
Used Computer is a viable option especially for tech savvy people who like to do things themselves, those who are buying PC on experhymental basis for their growing children and budget conscious people like me who pay more attention to proper functioning of the machine than the appearance. So if you are one such buyer than don’t think more and just buy a used computer from Electro Computer Warehouse inventory and use it worry-free.
