It can be very tempting to try and keep up with technology trends as a tech lover and buy the newest product launches as soon as they are released. However, this can be damaging to the environment and expensive to buy. Refurbished devices aim to solve both problems by making the latest tech more affordable and by keeping devices out of landfills. By gifting someone a refurbished device this Valentine’s Day, you are contributing to the protection of the environment and gifting a premium product!
Let’s take a closer look at why refurbished devices are a good eco-friendly gift idea for technology lovers this Valentine’s Day.
Great Gifting Ideas for Tech Lovers
If you would like to give someone a special gift, why not consider a refurbished laptop or tablet? Wisetek Store has a broad range of premium tech products, so there is a guarantee of something for everyone. Refurbished products are also eco-friendly, which makes them a good option for eco-conscious tech users who are looking for more sustainable IT products. You can find a wide range of products like refurbished laptops, refurbished tablets, refurbished phones and refurbished MacBooks at Wisetek Store.
Instead of buying a new device as a gift, select a refurbished device and save up to 60% on MacBooks, 50% on laptops and 30% on tablets. Our refurbished Apple iPads are a great eco-friendly gift idea for those who enjoy mobile computing or a refurbished Google Pixel phone for those who enjoy using premium smartphones. If you are looking to splurge a bit more, why not opt for a premium refurbished laptop from Apple or Dell. We also stock a wide range of tech accessories and bundles, with something to suit every budget. All of these are examples of great sustainable gifts that will put a smile on any tech lovers face without causing too much damage to your wallet.
What Is a Refurbished Device?
Refurbished devices such as laptops, tablets and phones are pre-owned devices that have been meticulously restored to full working condition. Many refurbished devices are premium devices from manufacturers like HP, Dell, Lenovo and Apple that have reached the end of their lifecycle in the corporate world. These devices are still in excellent shape, and they can be used for many more years to come. At Wisetek, we take these devices and securely remove all the data on them and fix any small problems before we make them available for purchase through Wisetek Store.
Refurbished devices are an excellent gifting idea for Valentine's day and will surely make any IT fanatic feel appreciated. It is estimated that the average Irish household produces around 52 Kgs of e-waste annually. Much of this waste can be reduced by switching to refurbished IT devices wherever possible.
Why Buying Refurbished Tech is a Good Idea
Buying refurbished products like a refurbished laptop or a refurbished tablet offers many advantages, one of the biggest of which is the price. Every tech enthusiast loves having a premium laptop, smartphone, or tablet in their backpack, but the price can often be too much. Choosing a refurbished model from Wisetek Store gives you access to premium devices from top manufacturers at significantly lower prices.
In addition to this, buying refurbished products is much kinder to the environment. The production of computer products contributes significantly to the pollution of the environment and the disposal of unwanted IT products also come with environmental problems. By opting to purchase a refurbished product, the demand for new PC production is lowered and devices remain in active use for longer. This reduces the environmental impact that incorrect disposal of IT products can have.
Wisetek Store adheres to the strictest environmental protection policies when refurbishing devices so that the environmental benefits are maximised. Our certified recycling facilities and processes are OHSAS, R2 and e-Stewards certified, and we comply with all the relevant ISO certification requirements.
What Should you Look for When Buying Refurbished Tech Gifts?
Here are some key factors that should be considered before you decide to purchase a refurbished device:
No one wants to skimp on their technology if it’s not up to standard. Fortunately, all the devices that are available from Wisetek Store are in perfect working condition and have been rigorously tested, repaired where necessary, and cleaned to ensure that the device functions like new. Based on a scale from New to Good, our devices suit all individuals and budgets. Why buy new when our refurbished products operate just as new!
Sometimes it can be hard to know what technology somebody already owns, especially if they’re a tech wiz! You can rest assured, however, as every device from Wisetek Store comes with a free standard 12-month warranty. To give you extra peace of mind, we also offer optional extended warranties of +2 years and +3 years.
If you are a last-minute shopper, there is often a worry that your product will not arrive in time for a special day. Fortunately, Wisetek Store offers 2-day express delivery across the EU, with free shipping on all orders over €100. In addition, because we are an Irish based company, there are no import taxes on purchases made within the EU, so no need to worry about any extra charges or order delays.
