A Few Good Refurbished Computers
Apple MacBook Pro Retina 2015
This MacBook is in great condition, you’ll be proud be seen using it in any coffee shop in Lexington, and it’s nice and fast. It has a 13″ Retina screen, 8GB RAM, an Intel i5 2.7Ghz processor and a 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD). This unit was manufactured before Apple’s unfortunate experiment with butterfly keyboards so it should remain pleasant to type on for years to come. The battery on the computer is still in good condition.
Now only $499
Lenovo M92P Mini Desktop
I love this computer because it’s powerful and tiny. I’ve been deploying more and more of these micro units and have 2 of them in service here in my business. The big advantage is space obviously, it’s about the size of 2 boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, if you don’t want or need a big dust collector computer sitting on your floor, you can put this on your desk or attach it to the wall or the back of your monitor and hardly know it’s there.
Lenovo M82 Small Form Factor
This is a Small Form Factor (SFF) computer from Lenovo. The SFF computers are roughly the size of 2 pizza boxes stacked on top of each other. They take up a lot less room in the office at the cost only of things most people don’t need (like a second hard drive or a giant gaming graphics card). I am partial to the Lenovo brand, these computers originally were IBM but the franchise was sold to Lenovo several years ago. I think they make excellent computers.
HP EliteBook 8470P Laptop
I’ve been carrying these computers for a little over a year now and have really come to like them. They are well built and rugged and have performed quite well in the field. They have Windows 7 on them, which is great especially for business, and a 3rd generation i5 processor which I expect to be good for many years. I originally intended to sell these for $299 but that was with 4GB RAM they had when I bought them. I don’t think that’s enough RAM to properly run Windows any more so I’ve upgraded them to 8GB, it adds to the cost but it makes the machine more “future proof” so I think it’s worth it.
