The Many Logical Benefits of Second Hand Laptops
Don’t let words like "used" scare you away from buying a second hand laptop. It is possible to purchase a cheap Acer laptop, for example, and still receive the same customer help and upgradability of a new Acer laptop. The same is true for used Dell laptops, second hand Toshibas or brand of a well-established electronics company. You will also be helping out the environment.
Many leading laptop manufacturers like Dell, Toshiba and Acer know how loyal used laptop buyers can be. Customers eagerly buy equipment, accessories and warranties form brands that teat them well. For example, customers of second hand Acer laptops get the same courtesy and help as customers of new Acer laptops. Customers are not left stranded to figure out used Acer laptops all by themselves. They can contact the manufacturer by email or by phone.
Does your discount Acer laptop need accessories or spare parts? These can be found on the same Acer customer support page as for buyers of Acer's latest model. Other major laptop companies offer these conveniences for customers of their used or refitted laptop or PCs.
How about if your used Acer laptop arrived without a how-to manual? Go to Acer's support website to find a copy of the manual to download or print out. Many other laptop companies feature this service, too.
It a common misconception that used or cheap laptops can't be upgraded. This is nonsense. For example, discount Acer laptops can be easily upgraded by downloading software from Acer's tech support website. Many other laptop companies will also have updates available for their used laptop models.
That means for all of you who bought a cheap Acer laptop to see that Windows Vista was installed, Vista can be easily replaced with Windows 7 by visiting Acer's customer service.

According to 'Mother Jones' magazine, 2% of all trash in American landfills is from old electronics like laptops. Unfortunately, these laptops contain 70% of the dangerous heavy metals found in landfills. Many of these laptops could have been refurbished and recycled. By choosing to buy, say, a used Acer laptop, you are helping to keep toxic heavy metals out of the environment.
