Before we pick out our best laptop deals, we thought it would be a good idea to provide you with some information about our refurbished products (from time to time we also supply limited new laptop & PC hardware) and to answer our frequently asked questions to help you decide on the best budget laptop for your all-important studies!

 

All Hardware Comes with the Latest Windows Installed

We often get asked by customers if used laptops purchased at ITZOO come with the latest Windows installed. The simple answer is Yes. We offer a wide variety of cheap Windows laptops which will always have the latest Windows software installed. You can also upgrade this to Windows Professional at an additional £30.00 on any device (all refurbished workstations come with Pro installed as standard). As a Microsoft Authorised Refurbisher, we have over 25 years of experience professionally refurbishing computers and laptops using data security and environmental and sustainability best practices and compliance methods. This also means that we must supply all hardware with the latest Windows installed which means your discounted laptop might be used and slightly older than the newer model but you will be sure to still have the latest software which is great news for Students who work on the most up-to-date software.

 

Finance Options Available with Klarna

We understand that a laptop purchase – new or refurbished can be a large cost commitment, especially amongst students whom can have a limited budget. At ITZOO, we offer a wide range of affordable laptops for all budgets, from HP reconditioned laptops, to affordable Chromebook laptops through to refurbished Lenovo laptops and reconditioned Dell laptops, we have something for every student.

 

We have teamed up with Klarna to offer our customers a better shopping experience by offering ‘pay in 30 days’ which allows you to buy your restored laptop now and pay in 30 days. Alternatively you can ‘pay in 3 instalments’, where you can split your ITZOO purchase into three equal payments so you can spread the cost of your purchase over time. So you can be sure to purchase the best affordable laptops without breaking the bank.

 

Information on how we Grade our Products

We often get asked what the differences are between our A and B grade restored laptops and in fact all of our refurbished products. To give customers a clear understanding of how we grade our products, we separate our grading into product categories which includes refurbished laptops, second hand PC’s and refurbished workstations and finally used smart phones, refurbished tablets and reconditioned Apple iPads.

 

As we are on the topic of the best refurbished laptops for students, we will explain the main different between A and B grade units for laptops sold at ITZOO. It is worth noting that all reconditioned laptops purchased at ITZOO undergo a stringent refurbishment process which is required when trading as a Microsoft Authorised Refurbisher (MAR). All devices are tested at our own premises in Sheffield to be fully functional before we clean the devices and then ship them out to our customers. We believe ITZOO is the best place to buy refurbished laptops for this reason – we are a trusted supplier of refurbished tech due to the stringent processes of testing devices before sale.

 

Grade A laptop units may show evidence of very light previous use and may feature very minor scuffs or minor scratches with light wear on keyboard from light previous use. B grade laptops are fully tested and fully functional just as our A grade units, but will show evidence of scratches on the laptop case and may feature more excessive use to external surface and normal wear than Grade A units will exhibit. To find out more about how we grade our products, please read our guide here.
