I found www.discountpc.net. I can’t say enough good things.
In business for 20+ yrs reselling refurbished, off-lease corporate computers & accessories. They’re organized PROs! FEDEX=$20 and super fast w NO charge if you return a computer.
I know it’s true because I decided to return the first one I bought for another and everything went exactly as they state on their web site.
I spoke with their very nice Tech manager who took the time to explain a lot of things to me and help me figure out which computer would suit my needs and my budget and he was RIGHT on target.
He explained that they have a thorough, automated plus human testing system for refurbishing every computer. They offer a great warranty including battery warranties on many computers.
My Gateway laptop is old and for fear of having problems and no backup, I decided to go ahead and buy a DELL Latitude D630 Notebook Intel Core 2 Duo T7100(1.80GHz) 14.1″, 1GB RAM (upgradable), 80GB HDD, DVD/CD-RW , 4 USBs, Wireless Internet, Guaranteed Battery and more for $239!
It looks & acts like NEW and is better than my Gateway, which I spend a LOT more money on quite a few years ago. I’m not a gamer so it’s perfect for my needs!
Business electronics are made to last and perform. I think my “new” laptop retailed for about $1200 and up.
They, also, sell Educational/Non-Profit systems from $55 w many under $200.
If you still need convincing, according to their eBay ratings they are a “Top Rated Seller” with a 99.2% positive rating with 13,048 ratings since May 2005. That’s good enough for me – I’m confident they are the real deal.
I’m very happy with my “new” Dell. I would definitely buy from them again with confidence.
(I am not getting compensated for this review – they don’t have anything to do with my decision to write this. I just wanted to pass the information along.)
