What Are Refurbished Computers?
If you are thinking about buying a new computer or laptop, refurbished models could be a great idea. A refurbished computer is one that has previously been used, sometimes only for a short time, but has been wiped and tested extensively in order to use it again rather than throwing it away.
At Giga Refurb, we collect computers from offices across the UK, and we test each and every one of them to make sure that they are completely functional and in good working order. Because of this rigorous testing, you are able to enjoy peace of mind in buying refurbished laptops and computers in the knowledge that you are receiving a product in full working order.
Refurbished does not mean that the computers are broken or that there is anything wrong with them. Sometimes businesses need to update all of their computers at the same time, but the old computers are still perfectly usable. You can take advantage of this and enjoy a powerful computer in great condition for less.
Why Buy Refurbished?
People decide to buy refurbished computers for a number of reasons. Essentially, you get a cheaper computer in great working condition. With cheap refurbished laptops, UK customers get more power for their money than they would buying a new computer because they can get a higher spec machine while spending less.
When buying refurbished computers, UK customers can also enjoy environmental benefits. Reusing is the best form of recycling, so you will be doing your bit for the environment by extending the life of an older computer rather than investing in a new one.

Do not delay
We ship each computer with a comprehensive warrantee. In the unlikely event that a part breaks down, we shall send our trained technicians to replace it with original spares. However, given the fact that customers purchase most of our computers as soon as we offer them for sale, we suggest that you visit our site at www.gigarefurb.co.uk and purchase your requirements before someone else purchases them. If you find any other online store offering lower prices for the same model, let us know, and we shall beat their prices.
Myth about refurbished computers busted
People often confuse repaired computers with refurbished ones. There lies a huge difference between the two of them. In repaired models, the technician uses diagnostic tools to locate the faulty part and replace it with a good one. Thanks to the proliferation of the internet, there is no dearth of one man online stores run by individuals who rarely have knowledge about computers. They often purchase old models, replace its faulty part with cheap imported spares, change its casing, and sell it to gullible customers as second hand and high performance PCs. Since they rarely provide any receipt, there is nothing the customer can do on finding that he has been taken for a ride. We at gigarefurb.co.uk refurbish computers instead of repairing them. This involves:
• Disassembling the PC
• Checking all of its hardware for optimum performance using state of the art diagnostic tools and replacing faulty ones with original spares
• Testing connectors and cables
• USB, ethernet ports, line in and out ports
• SMPS (switch mode power supply)
• Formatting the hard disk drive
• Fixing any major bump marks on the cabinet
• Inspecting the base of the cabinet for stability
• Assembling the PC
• Installing OEM operating system
• Subjecting the PC to a burn in test: (we typically run the computer continuously for two days to ensure that it functions properly... any problems with the PCs parts surface during this test)
The quality of our computers
We purchase the majority of the PC's we sell from large corporations and institutions. They might have some blemishes such as dents on the cabinet or worn out characters on the keyboard, but their users have maintained them properly even before the full overhaul by the professional technical team of Giga Refurb. These institutions and corporations, due to the nature of their work, which demands increasing processing power, need to update their computers regularly. We scan classified ads on online portals and newspapers for their ads, and purchase their used computers from them at rock bottom prices. Since most of these PCs are in perfect working condition, we only need to clean them, and replace faulty parts if required. Their quality is such that you will not be able to differentiate between a brand new PC and a refurbished computer. Since we stock both low end and number crunching desktops, you can rest assured that you will find one that meets your specifications. Our refurbished desktop sets might be cheap, but they offer reliability and performance.
Component level repair
Our qualified and factory trained technicians, armed with the latest diagnostic equipment check each component of the PC and repair them prior to the assembly process.
Refurbished harddrive: They check the circuit board and replace damaged components. If the platter is damaged, they replace the entire harddrive with a new one.
Memory chips: It is not possible to repair leaking memory chips. However, they can fix a damaged flash drive using refurbished memory cards, certified by the original equipment manufacturer.
We also stock a huge inventory of refurbished components such as:
• Refurbished processor
• Refurbished memory
• Computer processor
• Computer memory
• Computer harddrive
• Refurbished DDR2 (2GB) and DDR3 (2GB) chips
• Refurbished monitor
All of these ensure that you will get optimum performance when you purchase a refurbished computer set from us. Why do you not visit our website and check the wide selection of standalone refurbished PC or refurbished PC and monitor available? If you are not sure about the configuration best suited for your needs, get in touch with our staff via online chat and tell them the purpose you wish to use the desktop for along with your budget. They will show you several configurations that meet your requirements. Apart from this, you can also use the drop down menu on our website to filter the desktop you need by various parameters such as position, name, and price. Some of our popular refurbished PCs include popular brand names such as Dell and HP. You can check the complete configuration on our website.
Select by grade
We have sorted our refurbished computers on a grading system:
A. These are the best quality desktop available, covered by a 12 months' RTB (return to base) warranty, and are as good as new apart from some minor scratches on the case.
B. These are as good as `A' but with more signs of damage on the case. However, there are no compromises on the components and software. This too includes a 12 months' RTB warranty.
C. Expect some additional signs of damage and ships with the same warranty as for `A' and `B.'
The above grading system is applicable for our refurbished laptops too.
Looking for a laptop but cannot afford one?
Thanks to the proliferation of the internet and cheap high speed WiFi networks, more and more people prefer to access the net on the go on their smartphones and laptops. Would it not be awesome if you could relax a bit more at home and completed your office task while travelling from and to the office? You can easily achieve this goal with the help of laptops. Unfortunately, they are extremely costly and beyond the reach of ordinary persons. Senior executives hardly use a laptop for a couple of months before their company provides them with a new one. We keep a track of such companies and purchase their obsolete laptops from them. Do not be fooled by the word `obsolete' since these laptops have extremely high processing power and are just what you were looking for. In fact, your family will be fooled into believing that you purchased a new model. We stock most popular brands such as Fujitsu, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, and Dell.
Are refurbished laptops reliable?
You can bet that the refurbished laptop we sell go through a stringent test before we offer them for sale. We check its:
• Casing (whether it is substantially damaged)
• Display unit (for cracks and response to controls like brightness, contrast, backlight quality, readability, and colour saturation)
• Battery (whether it runs for the stated number of hours after a full charge)
• CPU (we use special software to perform diagnostic tests that determine the processing power of the central processing unit. If is does not meet the requirements, we replace the CPU)
• RAM (checking the memory for reliability and performance)
• DVD drive (whether it reads and writes properly)
• Keyboard (we utilize special software that checks whether all the keys are functioning properly or not. We also check the membrane attached to the keyboard for signs of wear and tear. Finally, we examine the response of the keyboard)
• Speakers, power on and off switch, USB and ethernet ports
• Mike, speaker, and video conferencing camera
• The power supply adapter
Looking towards the future
Our story has just begun. Chances are that you might be panning to take your brick and mortar based business online to tap the countrywide and global market. It would not be a wise idea to spend money going for a shared or dedicated host before your business expands. In such a scenario a vanilla desktop will not do. You need a powerful server. Apart from this, you might also require a server for your small business when you want to grant access to specific files to specific individuals of your organization. The best way to achieve this is by installing a server and connecting all the computers of your office via it.
Configure the server of your dreams
However, buying such a powerful machine can dent your bank balance severely. Go green and be environmental by purchasing a pre configured server. We at Gigarefurb provide you with the option to configure a server according to your specific requirements. Since the case and the parts are refurbished, you stand to save a huge sum when purchasing it through us. You will be able to choose from a wide range of reputed brands such as HP, Dell, IBM And Fujitsu. By the way, we are also a Microsoft authorised refurbisher. This ensures that you will only get top quality gadgets from us. How many others in this field can make this claim?
Are you an Apple aficionado?
You need not worry if you like to use products manufactured by the Cupertino based giant. We also store a wide range of refurbished Apple
We check each one of them thoroughly for glitches, fix them using genuine spares, and test them under stringent conditions for a minimum of 48 hours before we put them up for sale. We guarantee that you will not find Apple products on any other store at prices that we offer.
Monitor conked out
Chances are that your computer is working fine but the TFT (thin film transistor... a variant of the liquid display monitor that makes use of active matrix addressing) monitor has broken down or has patches in certain parts of the display. This can be a cause of concern if you use your computer for graphic designing. Trying to get a replacement might be futile. Thanks to the rapid advances in technology, more and more companies are nowadays only manufacturing LED (light emitting diode) display units. Although their picture rendering quality is far better compared to LCD, the flipside is that they, being a relatively new technology, are much costlier. We can help you overcome your woes by supplying you with refurbished LCD displays. If this is not enough, we can also provide you with a completely refurbished monitor at prices that will leave you smiling.
Refurbished equipments apart we also sell accessories
If you are on the lookout for computer accessories, compare the prices offered by us. If you find them cheaper somewhere else, let us know, and we shall beat that price. We stock some of the best quality accessories manufactured by leading global brands.
• Computer components: Are you planning to increase the RAM of your computer? Check our website for a wide variety of RAMs (both DDR2 and DDR3 at different clock speeds) manufactured by global giants. Each one of them are packed in tamper proof blister packs and come with a lifetime warranty.
• Computer accessories: Sometimes the ethernet port included with the motherboard is not enough, especially when you want to access two different networks: one having a straight cable configuration and the other a twisted cable configuration. Instead of searching all over the net for it, visit our online store and select one that meets your budget.
• Computer keyboard: It is a well known fact that the keyboard is the second most abused part of the computer: the primary one being the mouse. The silk screen printed characters on the key tops start fading after some time due to wear and tear, especially if the user has long nails. Some of the costlier brands use laser technology to etch the characters on the key tops. You will find a wide array of keyboards on our store including the cheap ones that have membranes (they do not provide a clicking sound when the keys are depressed), or the costlier ones that use tactile keys that provide a clicking feedback. Apart from these, we also offer wireless keyboards... useful if you plan to keep the keyboard a distance away from the computer or do not like wires running all over the place.
• Computer mouse: The mouse is one of the most important and one of the most venerable attachments of the computer. Users click it thousands of times per day without giving a second thought. We stock a wide range of mice at different price ranges manufactured by reputable brands. You can opt for a low cost wired mouse or a costly wireless one.
• Laptop case: Can you imagine the harm you can cause to your laptop if it accidentally drops to the ground? Apart from this, exposing the laptop to the elements can also cause severe damage to it. Our specially designed laptop case protects your precious laptop from the elements and dust as well. It has enough space to store adapters and portable hard disk drives too.
• Laser printer: Our inventory consists of a wide range of laser printers, both big and small and ideal for use both at home, medium size offices and large corporations. Check out the wide range of black & white and colour printers. The smaller ones have a print speed of 12 pages per minute and can accept up to A4 size, whereas the huge ones, ideal for corporate houses, are equipped with a network port (apart from the ethernet port) and can print up to 100 pages per minute.
