What You Should Know Before You Buy a Refurbished Computer

We know there's a host of options when you purchase a computer, and unless you are a computer tech guru, it can be overwhelming. Now, add to that the option of purchasing a refurbished computer, and you might be downright nervous.

Don't be.

Instead, be informed before you start shopping. The good news is that many of the same questions you would ask, or someone might ask of you in making a decision, applies to new or refurbished technology. So let’s start there.

What will you use the computer for?

Besides the internet, do you have specific needs in using a computer? Are you a graphic designer, a gamer, a streaming video addict? These types of activities call for applications that will require more, high-speed RAM to process the information quickly. In addition, gaming requires higher end graphics processing and audio production. Obviously, if you’re just using Powerpoint or Excel, it’s not such a big deal.
