Green Computing Practices in Computer Refurbishment

  • Upgrading to Solid State Drives (SSDs) – Solid-State Drives have become increasingly popular as they offer faster read/write speeds and improved overall performance compared to traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDD). Many refurbishing companies offer their computers with pre-installed SSDs instead of the traditional HDDs. SSDs speed up a computer’s boot -up time and are more shock -resistant than HDDs.
  • Replacing or upgrading RAM – Upgrading the computer’s RAM can improve it’s overall performance by allowing it to run multiple applications at the same time without slowing down. Refurbishers are often adding more RAM to older machines to extend their useful lifespan.
  • Replacing batteries in old Laptops – Replacing batteries in laptops helps prolong their life and improves the performance of the device. Replacing the batteries can improve their portability by allowing them to be used without being plugged. Most laptops have batteries that are easily accessible and can be removed by the user.
  • Refurbishing gaming laptops – Gaming laptops are often built with high-end components and are quite expensive when purchased new. Refurbishing companies are now offering gaming laptops as part of their refurbishing services , allowing gamers to purchase these devices at a lower cost.
