Purchasing a home or business computer can be a big and sometimes costly decision. Below is a listing of helpful suggestions on what to look for and what to ask when purchasing a new computer.

New vs. refurbished or used

If you are looking to save money buying a used or refurbished computer can save you money. A refurbished computer is a computer that has been returned to the company has been checked out as good but cannot be sold again as new. All major computer manufacturers have a refurbished section showing all their available refurbished products. Buying one of these computers instead of a new computer can save you thousands of rands.

In addition to refurbished computers individuals and companies for various reasons also sell their used computers. When buying these look out for the following.

Verify it has no physical damage (sometimes a little damage such as scratches are due to the way it is stored in warehouses -make sure tat you are happy with the product) by inspecting the ports as well as the inside and the outside of the case. Make sure you pay for what you are getting. Realize that many computer manufacturers will not transfer the computer warranty from the old user to you, so be sure that you are getting some form of warranty.

At fso Business solutions we have saved clients tens of thousands of rands by supplying them refurbished machines. As difficult as it may be to believe we have found that refurbished machines from branded companies such as lenovo & HP outlast new machines that are not branded & have far less problems & come at a fraction of the price. To put it another way if one had to replace a refurbished machine due to problems with a refurb machine (which has never happened in our experience) the cost will still be less than purchasing a new machine with the same specs.

Please note fso Business solutions supply new machines as well & as such leave the decision to the client. Our job is to advise.
