Now that the holiday season is here, it’s time to make your hard-earned dollar go the extra mile and give some serious thought to why you should buy used electronics. Tech investments, whether for the office or gaming or vintage-collecting, offer a unique opportunity to reduce financial strains AND help out the environment when buying used electronics.
A pioneer in the industry for nearly twenty years now, eAsset Solutions is proud to stand out with our commitment to a circular economy and by offering a diverse range of high-quality, pre-owned electronics.
Let’s take a look!
Why You Should Buy Used Electronics
We’ve touched on this many times, but when you buy used electronics you help support a circular economy, which represents a sustainable framework centered on responsible resource utilization, waste reduction and the preservation of environmental resources. Championed by influential figures such as architect and economist Walter R. Stahel in partnership with Genevieve Reday-Mulvey, various industries stand as exemplary models in this worthy and noble cause to actively combat wasteful practices by keeping products, still functional, in circulation.
By adhering to the principles of a circular economy, our online platforms give used electronics a chance at second life (Oh ye gods, please do the same with us!), significantly reducing e-waste.
They are indispensable, portable, look sleek and cool, and we have them in abundance. Whether you’re a professional or a gamer or simply a run-of-the-mill Joe looking to upgrade to the next level, we offer a myriad of options through our online stores.
Brands like HP, Dell, Lenovo and many more are just some of the options (Asus and Apple MacBooks…we could go on and on) we have on deck, and with their impressive performance at competitive prices, these laptops will retain their functionality for years to come, making them ideal for your on-the-go work or entertainment needs this holiday season.
Moreover, opting to buy used laptops often allows for great customization options. With the ability to add more RAM, upgrade storage, or even replace the graphics card, customers can tailor laptops to suit their specific requirements while extending their lifespan.
Desktop computers, ranging from brands like Dell, HP, Lenovo, Asus and even vintage Apple Macintosh models, provide power and versatility, making this another great choice for your holiday needs. Often overlooked, used desktops offer a cost-effective way to set up a home office or upgrade your gaming battle ground station without breaking the bank.
Additionally, investing in a used desktop can open doors for DIY upgrades and modifications. Upgradable components—and we have them all—such as processors, graphics card and storage devices provide opportunities for personalization and performance enhancement (Barry-Bonds-style) without the ridiculous expense of buying a brand-new system.
Calling all gamers and graphic design enthusiasts—this one’s for you. Brands like NVIDIA, Dell, MSI Radeon, Asus and so many more will play a decisive role in your functional outcome. Opting for used graphics cards not only saves you money but, again, also contributes to reducing the environmental footprint associated with their production.
Buying used graphics cards, furthermore, also provides access to older models that offer excellent performance for specific applications or gaming needs. A boon for enthusiasts, this accessibility to legacy hardware on a budget is a must this holiday season.
Ah, the printer. Let’s face it: for businesses or home offices, these bad boys are inescapable. Fortunately, we carry a diverse range of these suckers too, including brands like HP LaserJet, Dell, Brother, Xerox, Epson and many more. Buying used printers not only saves money but…you guessed it—promotes resource conservation by extending their lifespan.
Opting for used printers, moreover, comes with the added benefit of cost-effective consumables. In addition, we carry various toners and ink cartridges, as well as trays and other components to ensure ongoing functionality as well as operational savings without compromising on quality.
Now, if you’re a big boy in the tech field you may be looking for something a little more hard and robust for your network infrastructure. In which case, we have servers available. Many servers (HP Proliant vs Dell PowerEdge anyone?)
A quick look through our inventory will undoubtedly apprise of the awesome fact. Businesses looking to maintain or expand existing infrastructure without entirely overhauling their setups or budgets will have a field day, we promise.
And finally, let’s not sleep on the little guys. Docking stations and power adapters get it done, and with brands ranging from HP and Dell to Lenovo and Asus, we have them in stock and ready to enhance your connectivity and convenience. Opting for used docking stations and used power adapters not only reduces costs but also minimizes the demand for new production, contributing to a greener, cleaner future.
One last point. Buying used docking stations and power adapters will also provide you access to discontinued or vintage models that are still fully functional. Consequently, these options can be appealing for collectors or individuals looking for a certain aesthetic or functionality no longer found in newer models.
So with Christmas fast approaching, remember to buy used electronics, not only to save money and receive quality in return, but also to support the conservation of the world around you. When you purchase from us you play a very critical and important role, however small, in reducing e-waste and preserving the environment.
By choosing to invest in used electronics, then, whether it’s a laptop, desktop, graphics card, printer, server or any number of accessories we house in our inventory, individuals and businesses make a conscious effort to support a circular economy while still enjoying reliable and affordable tech solutions.
