There are advantages to each! New computers have the longest life ahead of them, are free from any wear and tear or cosmetic blemishes, and have a 1-year manufacturer's warranty. But, they also have a higher price tag.
Refurbished computers are a great budget-minded alternative. Quietech professionally refurbishes all our computers with a brand new Solid State hard Drive (SSD), new thermal paste, and thorough testing and cleaning. The downside for refurbished computers is the lack of a year warranty from the manufacturer, and a potentially shorter lifespan.
As you can see, there are pros and cons to each choice. Reach out if you'd like help with the decision!
