How to buy a refurbished laptop - and get nearly new for less

There are many places to buy a laptop - but none quite so value-packed as the eBay Refurbished Store

Buying a brand new laptop, especially if you want to find one that meets your specific requirements, can be an expensive prospect. 

eBay’s refurbished laptops are a great way to save money on what is essential gear, without compromising on the quality you need to get the job done. 

But how can you be sure you’re getting a good deal? If you follow these few laptop buying tips then it’s easy to find a great laptop that will last you for years to come. 

Performance without compromise 

Follow these easy steps and it’s perfectly possible to find a great laptop that won’t cost you the earth. 

We’re sure you’ll find a laptop that meets your needs, comes with a full warranty and is in a quality condition, which will make you happy to have a device that’s just as good as any brand new product. 

You can trust eBay

The most important part of buying a refurbished laptop from eBay is that the site provides quality assurance to the brands it sells – and works with many top manufacturers and retailers to maintain this quality of service. 

For instance, laptops available through eBay Refurbished Tech Hub have been professionally refurbished by the manufacturer or retailer themselves, and they’ll use teams that know the hardware inside and out. 

Whilst refurbished products are increasing in popularity on the general market, eBay gives refurbished tech a direct platform, full of variety and choice, if you're looking for well-known, trustworthy brands. 

Sometimes it can look as though big compromises are needed if you want a laptop that will meet both your needs and your budget. 

There'll be no performance hit

A refurbished laptop may have had a previous owner, but you needn’t worry about whether it can still perform like a brand new one. 

On eBay Refurbished Tech Hub, read the listing thoroughly so that you completely understand the full extent of your purchase and your performance expectations are met immediately. 

You can check what condition the laptop is in upfront and you can determine whether this is the right laptop for you based on this information provided. 

No details are hidden, and you’ll know what you’re ordering from the start, and you’ll be reassured that your laptop will be delivered as per the specifications and treatment given on the site. 

Always check the warranty

Of course, even the most well tested laptops can develop faults over time. This is why every item in the eBay Refurbished Tech hub comes with a 12-month warranty, ensuring that even if the unthinkable happens you can be sure your seller will take care of any problems. 

This 12-month warranty will mean that even if something goes wrong with your laptop then you won’t be left out of pocket.
