Does it Make Sense to Buy a Used Computer?

It would be nice if computers lasted forever, but even the most advanced and reliable models will breakdown at some point. When this happens to you, there’s an important question to answer: does it make sense to buy a used computer?

If you decide to consider this idea, there are a few things you need to remember. Above all else, make a list of places to begin your search. For example, you may find the best deal on a used computer at a local estate sale.

Here are some of the many reasons why you want to consider this:

·      Save a lot of money: When compared to a new model, you’ll quickly find that you can save quit a bit of money on your purchase. You can then use the savings however you best see fit, such as to purchase accessories.

·      More features: Your budget is your budget, and you need to stretch it as far as possible. For example, if you have $500 to spend, you may only be able to afford a bare-bones new computer. However, if you’re willing to spend the same $500 on a used computer, you can get your hands on more features.

·      Reduce environmental waste: It may not be the only reason to buy a used computer, but it’s definitely one of the top benefits. Consumer electronics are taking a toll on the environment as a whole. When you buy a used computer, you save it from ending up in a landfill.

Before you look down on the idea of buying a used computer, take these benefits into consideration. They may change your final decision.

Note: if you’re having an estate sale and want to sell a computer, either remove the hard drive or have it professionally wiped. Your estate sale company can refer you to someone to assist with the process.
