It is the Coretek process that takes our standards to new levels, distinguishing us from other vendors and guaranteeing lower failure rates than brand new computers.
There are plenty of people who would definitely consider buying a pre-owned car, but who wouldn’t dream of buying a refurbished computer system. And they may think they have plenty of reasons for feeling that way. However, these reasons are often based on misconceptions about used equipment that simply don’t hold up under close scrutiny.
Refurbished computers, of the same brands and models you are used to, cost less than half of an equivalent brand new unit. We’ve worked with thousands of organizations across North America and have created processes built for speed and quality. In addition to our transparent policies we also offer custom imaging, logistic help and more to help to you save precious time or-dering and maintaining your computers.
Although computers have gradually become more reliable, the failure rates of brand-new machines are still quite high com-pared to the same equipment that has been Coretek Refurbished.
