All about the Laptop Centre

The Laptop Centre has been trading successfully for over a decade.  The company, www.thelaptopcentre.co.uk was launched in May 2004, born out of a realisation by the parent company Portable IT, who have been selling second hand ex-corporate IT equipment to small businesses for over 20 years, that there was a demand to sell refurbished computer equipment on line to the public at trade prices.   We offer our customers excellent quality refurbished products at low prices.  Our products include quality computer technology from Dell, HP, Toshiba, IBM, Lenovo and Fujitsu, we are also licensed traders of refurbished Apple products including such items as the MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac mini, iPhone and the ever popular Apple iPad.

Our aim is to be the cheapest retailer for recycled computer goods and we are constantly monitoring prices to achieve this.  With the experience of over 10 years of trading, The Laptop Centre has built a large loyal base of customers, please see our comments page for genuine personal recommendations. Our main aim is to under sell and over deliver, and make all our customers happy and satisfied.
