Why you should buy our laptops Buying our refurb laptops means you can save hundreds of pounds compared to new laptops and still get reliability, high specification and at least 6 months warranty. If a computer was to go wrong it would normally go wrong in the first 3 months from new, so these refurbished laptops have already been run in. Also Laptop computer technology has slowed down because the computers are doing pretty much what we want from them, buy even a 3 year old laptop and you will be surprised what it can do. Our refurbished laptop computers have all been data wiped and software re-installed to its original condition then all updates added fixing any data bugs that may have evolved. We also sell refurbished laptops that are some times only a few days old and have been return open boxed just because it was not what the customer wanted. These open boxed laptops can then not be sold as a new product. This is becoming more frequent due to increasing on line sales and the distant selling act. For these open boxed products click on this link...http://www.thelaptopcentre.co.uk/as-new-laptops.html . If you receive your reconditioned laptop and for what ever reason you do not like or want it, you can return it and get a full no quibble refund (You do need to notify us with in 14 days that you want a refund). So there has not been a better time to buy refurbished laptops for the following reasons... 1. You will save hundreds of pounds (In the present economical climate has got to be important.) 2. You still can get high specification laptops with up to date software. 3. On line returns means there are more and more AS NEW laptops to buy at least 50% cheaper still with manufactures warranty. 4.

What is a refurbished laptop? The Term Refurbished laptop or notebook means: The laptop is not new and has gone through a refurbishment programme either in house or at the manufactures factory. Most of our laptops have been refurbished by us and have come from a number of sources such as… 1.End of lease (ex-corporate) the laptops have been fully cleaned, repaired and tested ready for sale 2. Trade in programs, where the laptops have been traded in for a new machine direct with the manufacturer, we then check the refurbished item and prepare it for sale. 3. Ex demo the laptop box has been opened demonstrated and then sent back to the manufacturer where it is tested and re setup for sale then sent to us to remarket. 4. We also have refurbished laptops that were originally customer returns. These laptops were either mistake purchases or laptops that were shipped with a foreseen minor fault. Due to these laptops being returned, they are put through rigorous testing to diagnose any fault. Anything faulty is replaced and the laptop is refurbished back to an ‘as new’ standard. It is said that an as new laptop is usually more reliable than a standard new model as the level of testing it goes through is far more stringent than the usual manufacturer tests. Some of our stock is also ex display laptops from some leading retailers and these are also in brilliant condition.
We are closely link with some of the major manufacturers and retailers and the trade in program seems to be getting more and more popular. We just can’t believe some of these laptops, the spec and condition of these laptops once refurbished are like new.
We will always state the condition of the laptops and mention if there are faults or if the product is in better condition than expected.
Portable IT Refurbishment process is very in-depth and our refurbished laptops from all sources go through this procedure.
1. The products are book in and then a visual inspect is done noting any cosmetic faults if any. Also condition, second hand, refurbished, ex demo, open box, As New.
2. Robust diagnostic software is run on the machines testing thoroughly the Graphics, system board, hard dive, memory, all ports etc…
3. The hard drive is then data wiped and the original software is preloaded. (Common laptop operating software tends to be Windows XP, Windows XP Pro, Windows Vista Business, Windows 7 and Windows 7 Pro)
4. The Software is then tested and upgrades installed when needed.
5. When the machine is sold the laptop is check again to make sure what is ordered is exactly what is going out
We do sell our refurbished laptops to bulk trade buyers where Operating systems may not be installed.
The Laptop Centre also offer spares for most of the refurbished, recondition products we sell. So if you are out of warranty please contacts because we may be able to repair your computer and we will not charge for labour as long as the laptop was bought from us.
We have refurbished laptops to suit all needs, person and purse. For Example…Very high spec Refurbished laptops for the IT specialised who always wants to stay a head of the game.

Types of Refurbished Laptops:
Would You Buy a Refurbished Laptop?
Not exactly a laptop, but I bought a refurb 24" iMac about a year ago and have never had a single problem with it.
I have bought a refurbished desktop and laptop. Both were great and saved a plenty of dollars. There is a company in NY that is a not-for-profit called Perscholas (I think perscholas.org) that provides refurbished computers to schools and communities. We got my daughter a desktop through their program and it was great. I bought myself a laptop that was also very inexpensive and wonderful. They provide tech support and it comes with open office software. I think it was just under $500 for the laptop. It really was a great bargain and I love the machine. Several friends of ours have bought machines as well. I have no complaints and think its a great program, company and machine. We went and picked them up at the warehouse but I think you can phone as well.
refurbished isn't a word that scares me. So long as it has the power I'm looking for, and depending on the price I'm in. I have boughten plenty of used laptops that were not refurbished and never had a problem. I would think refurbished would be a step above used.
I've had 4 refurbished Dell laptops and helped family and friends buy them as well. Some needed repair but nothing out of the ordinary. It's worth the money you save.
I bought a refurb Thinkpad T-30 for $200 via eBay. It works great. I replaced the W2K with XPP and haven't looked back since. WiFi and DVD. It plays Fritz Chess 9 just great, I write articles with it, and write FileMaker 9 code. Great deal for the price.
Well I might sound like a cheapo but all the laptops ive ever bought for myself for home use have been second-hand and the best part is that if you look hard enough you might get a very good functioning peice of technology for way less than the original buyer.
