 Green Computing: Refurbished PCs Laptops

 

 

Adopting green computing practices in the home and office is simple, cost effective, and a key part of everyday responsible consumerism.

By purchasing your refurbished PCs and laptops through RefurbThat – one of a select few Microsoft Authorised refurbishers in the UK - you help to reduce the energy consumption and pollution associated with manufacturing a new computer.

Eighty-one per cent of a PC’s or laptop’s lifetime energy use occurs during its making, not when you operate it. In fact, a UN study found that the manufacturing of a single computer and its screen consumes at least 240kg of fossil fuels, 22kg of chemicals, and 1.5 tonnes of water.

RefurbThat’s high-spec, ex-corporate refurbished computers are “like new” both functionally and cosmetically, without further draining the earth’s natural resources or contributing to pollution. All come preloaded with a genuine Windows 7 operating system and a one-year Return to Base (RTB) Warranty.

Choosing to adopt green computing practices is easy. There are opportunities to exercise more environmentally-friendly habits when you buy, use and dispose of IT equipment such as PCs and laptops, including: 

• Purchasing professionally-refurbished computers where possible, reducing the consumption of raw materials, energy and water needed to make every new PC or laptop.

• Exercising smart power options to consume less electricity when using your computer.

• Disposing of your electronics where they will be once again reused and recycled.
