Why Refurbished and what does it mean?
Factory Refurbished does not mean second hand. Anything but. Commercial grade computers are many times the price of their ‘retail’ relations. They are built with robustness, endurance and performance in mind with tougher chassis, better components and stronger materials.
Corporates usually expire their IT assets after between a year and 2 years - premium expensive equipment potentially for destruction and adding to the immense pile of electronic waste globally.
Thanks to forward thinking manufacturers like Lenovo, these machines are graded, tested, parts replaced where standards are not met and re distributed through reputable agents with the full support to offer comprehensive warranty. Packaging is reduced to a minimum and the operating system is the very latest iteration with no bloatware or crapware loaded.
All in all, if I was a dictator, I would make sure all students, small businesses, schools and home users alike used factory refurbished Thinkpads. It’s inexpensive, ethical and the hardware is tough, fast, reliable and feature rich.
