Apple has dominated the smartphone market, the tablet market, the media streaming device market and this holiday season, the desktop computer market.
The innovative tech company knocked Dell down from its multiyear reign over desktop computers this year, but Apple wasn’t always in close second. In 2011, the company was in third place, behind HP, but swiftly stole that spot in 2012.
However, as you may have heard, desktop computers are slowly diminishing and are being replaced by more mobile devices – tablets and smartphones. It may be a better option to pick up a refurbished desktop computer version of your favorite brand.
Refurbished desktop computers are a great find! Here’s why:
Refurbished computers are typically sold without an operating system. For the computer-building enthusiast, buying refurbished is the most efficient way to get quality, inexpensive systems and customize them into your ideal machine.
Minor defects, no problem!
Light scratch? Let’s mark that price way down for you. If you don’t mind a few minor defects that have no effect on the internal workings of the unit itself, then refurbished electronics are an awesome option!
One convenient thing about buying refurbished desktop computers from stores like the HOBI Shop is items come with similar warranties as brand-new electronics. A 30-day return policy lowers the risk of your investment.
Buying refurbished electronics save you and the environment. These fully-functional computers are able to get a second life when sent to experts certified in IT asset management. Inspected and tested for quality, refurbished electronics are close to brand-new but resold at a fraction of the price!
