If your business needs to upgrade outdated desktop computers, or expand the number of desktops that are available at your office, Workgroup Technology Solutions can provide access to quality ex-lease desktop computers that are let go by big rental companies after their initial three year rental terms and corresponding manufacturers’ warranties expire. These ex-lease packages are then sold on as retail packages (desktop, flat-screen monitor, and Windows licence) with full 12 month warranties for around $500 each, excluding GST.
How does this work?
Most large businesses that rent desktop computers simply upgrade after the three years, largely because the original manufacturer no longer offers a warranty. However, the machines are usually very well built – because it costs the original vendors a lot of money every time they have to send someone out to fix a hardware failure during the warranty period. After the leases expire, the rental companies simply offload these perfectly good machines to refurbishing firms, who then upgrade the machines a little, make sure that they are in good working order, and then sell them on at a small profit.
What does this mean for my business?
You can purchase a refurbished, fully guaranteed machine that will run Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2007 without issue, for around $500 each, excluding GST. If you add an Office 2007 Small Business Edition license, the whole package will cost around $800 ex. GST per machine.
And the best news is: if you buy multiple PCs, after we have customised the first machine to meet your needs, we can simply copy our changes across to the others, saving a lot of time (and you a lot of money!) when there are two or more desktops that are being purchased together.
