Here Are Our Top 5 Reasons to Buy a Reconditioned Desktop Today!


They’re Good For Your Wallet

With the cost of living higher than ever, we’re all looking at ways to stretch our finances further. Refurbished devices are a great way of getting a machine that’s suitable for your needs, without the hefty price tag. With desktops getting quicker and more powerful you can still get a great performing device for your money, and you can save up to 80% vs a new device of the same spec. 

You can also upgrade your machine before its packaged up and shipped out to you, meaning if you can’t see the exact spec you require, you can configure to your needs and know exactly how much you’ll be paying. 


Quality Assured

There is a stigma that refurbished devices equals poor quality, which is certainly not the case. Reconditioned branded devices carry the build quality but don’t cost the earth.  

Here at Stone. We inspect all devices that arrive into our facility, and grade our desktops accordingly, so you know what sort of condition they’ll be in before you buy. Stone Refurb only sell Grades A-C meaning you won’t be disappointed when your desktop arrives. 

All our desktops come with a six month warranty as standard, which shows our level of trust in our components, as well as a 30 day returns policy. Plus, all of our peripherals or accessories are brand new, to ensure the best hygiene and safety standards. 


They’re Good For The Environment

By buying refurbished, you’re also helping the environment. With e-waste now the worlds fastest growing waste stream, and the UK producing approximately 1.6 million tons of e-waste, the situation is becoming a real concern across the world.
Stone are committed to sending zero waste to landfill, via our Stone 360 model. Through our fully accredited IT recycling facility, we professionally refurbish and repurpose all the devices we can, giving them a second lease of life. Any piece of equipment that is not fit for refurbishment, is broken down, so that its parts can be reused or responsibly recycled, instead of being sent to landfill as harmful e-waste.

Our packaging is fully recyclable too!


Easy To Find Components

Manufacturers will provide support for their products, but only for a certain time. There may be new components that come out which will no longer fit in your device, meaning you have to go out and buy again. Refurbishment keeps a lot of old parts in circulation, meaning it’s easier to find spare parts. As refurbished desktopss are usually a few years old this means there is plenty of choice if you want to replace a part or upgrade your device and they’ll still fit your machine!


Reduce Loss

Whether you’re buying a computer for yourself, a family member, or if you’re looking for a bulk batch of desktops for your business, if something were to happen and the device broke, it’s going to be much more cost effective when the time comes to replace it!
