We refurbish!

We also sell affordable and reliable refurbished laptop, notebook, and desktop computers. We will never sell a computer that we would feel uncomfortable recommending to our own families and friends. Every refurbished item is obtained from computer recyclers or reclaimers, then thoroughly cleaned, tested, and repaired when necessary. Each refurbished computer sports a clean install of its operating system, no bloatware, and features an assortment of free, useful utilities such as the open-source, Microsoft Office-compatible suite LibreOffice, virus and malware protection, and modern, secure web browsers with ad-blocking software and anti-phishing protection.
