Every computer refurbished by the Computer Shop® meets with or exceeds original manufacturers specifications. We fully diagnose and test every unit slated for refurbishment, repair or replace any defective parts & components with equal to or greater than original specifications. Using our propriatory process, we then optimize the operating system to peak performance with the end-user in mind and in most cases, after we refurbish a computer it performs faster and better than ever!
We refurbish two types of computers;
Retailer / Customer Returns; We buy customer returns from major retailers and other sources. These are computers that have been sold retail and then returned to the retailer or a warranty center for some reason, often being that the buyer simply decided they needed the money more for something else and returned it for a cash refund. We hand select units to be refurbished and then, thoroughly inspect and test each computer for proper functionality and working condition and replace any parts or components that do not pass adequate integrety testing or are found to be defective in any way. We use only quality replacement parts, which usually exceeds original manufacturers specifications. After refurbishing, MS Windows OS is re-installed or upgraded and all units are fully optimized for peak end user performance and then, double checked and rechecked for proper functionality and speed, before being set onto our shelves for resell. Often times, these units are "better" than new!
Customer Trade-Ins; We often take trade-ins from our customers that are in need of repairs, but meet minimum specifications deemed worthy of refurbishment. As with retailer or customer returns, these units are thoroughly inspected or diagnosed and any defective or inadequate parts or components are replaced with new ones, OS then optimized for maximum performance and double checked before being set onto our shelves for resell. These units are refurbished in-house by our own technicians and are considered "as-good-as", new.
Corporate/Business Machines; We often buy quantities of used/off-lease workstations or servers from businesses and corporations that have upgraded their administrative offices. We thoroughly inspect these machines and test component integrity using OEM diagnostic tools and standards. All defective or inadequate parts or components are replaced, OS re-installed, optimized and tested for max end-user performance. These machines are also refurbished in-house by our own technicians and considered to be "as-good-as", new...
