Hello and welcome to Affordable laptops. Our goal is to provide you with an option when you are considering purchasing a laptop computer. An option that we believe makes a lot of sense (which you will soon find out).
We know there are millions of people who would like to own a laptop computer, however, many of them cannot afford to buy one. They think that laptops are too expensive. That is usually because they do not know about, or have not considered buying a used or refurbished laptop.
Laptops, like most other higher priced items depreciate (loose value) quickly. By purchasing a used or refurbished laptop you are making it much more affordable. So much so that virtually anyone who desires one can afford it. Much like buying a used car is much cheaper than buying a new one.
A used computer is just that – a computer that has been owned and used by a previous owner. By searching carefully, it is possible to find used computers that are in virtually “like new” condition. The previous owner has either taken that good of care of the unit, or, they simply did not use it much.
A refurbished computer is a used computer, that has been inspected (and possibly upgraded and/or had any missing or broken parts repaired) and verified to be in working order.
There are many advantages of purchasing a used or refurbished computer, they include:
#1 – Affordability
#2 – Performance – often, you can get a computer with many more functions & features (including free software)
#3 – Much kinder to the environment. One of the things that are of great concern to environmentalist is electronic waste.
#4 – Sometimes include a guaranty or warranty.
In our opinion, there really is no reason for most people to buy a new laptop computer.
And although used laptop computers can be bought online at other websites, we can save you time by being your one stop shop, and we stand behind every laptop we sell.
While buying a brand-new laptop can be fun, you can save a lot of money by purchasing a “refurbished” or used one instead. These are units that have been returned unopened to the manufacturer or store where they were purchased and can no longer be sold as new, even though for all practical purposes they are in new condition with all of the components and accessories.
When purchasing used laptops make sure it has all of the features you need and is not missing any parts.
Because you are searching for a used system, make sure to ask the seller, no matter where you go, what their return policy is and whether the system is still under manufacturer’s warranty. You don’t want to take the laptop home, have it be dead on arrival, and then not be able to work with the seller to replace or refund it.
When you have an old laptop around that you don’t need anymore, consider giving it away. Many charitable organizations gladly accept used laptops. Make sure there is nothing left on the hard drive that you wouldn’t want someone else looking at before donating. Also, determine the value of the laptop, so that you can write the amount off on your taxes if you donate it to a charitable or nonprofit organization.
If you are donating your laptop, it probably means that you are getting a new one. Although the laptop is outdated, donating it will make someone else very happy.
Like new cars, laptops decrease in value soon after they are driven off the lot. It’s no wonder that used cars and laptops have steadily gained in popularity among those looking to buy a laptop.
A laptop can be a wise investment, but sometimes you just don’t have enough money to be able to purchase a brand-new, state-of-the-art laptop. If this is the case for you, please contact us for our current inventory. If we do not have it in stock we can usually get it to you in just a few days.
You are searching for a laptop but lack the funds to purchase a new one outright. You can always look for a used one. As quickly as computer technology is advancing most people do not need to have the latest model, most computers are used for surfing the internet, word processing or playing games which used computers can all do.
Online gaming has become an incredibly popular form of entertainment, especially in the last 10 years, as technology has improved. Used computers are great for this.
Do some research to decide the type of laptop you want. It may be a good idea to seriously consider buying a brand that is known to put part numbers on everything, such as Dell, so it will be easier to find a replacement part for the laptop in the future if necessary.
Read through the description carefully and thoroughly check the condition of the model you are looking at so you are not disappointed when it arrives. View all of the images provided, ask the seller questions if you are unsure about anything.
Even as computer prices drop, they are still out of the price range of many people. Please consider an affordable alternative from AffordableLaptops.net
