Buying a refurbished PC can be a great way to get a quality device at a discounted price. With that in mind, here is a guide to help you make the most informed decision when it comes to purchasing a refurbished PC from OnBuy. 

1. Decide on the right type of PC

Before shopping, it's important to do your research and work out what the right type of PC is for you - this way you can work out your price range and figure out how good a deal you're getting. Consider the type of activities you’ll be doing, such as gaming, streaming, or working from home.

To help you work out what the right PC is for you, we've put together this convenient desktop computer buying guide.

2. Consider the specs

OnBuy offers a wide range of refurbished PCs, each with different qualities and specifications, from affordable, basic PCs to premium, advanced machines. As refurbished devices don't come with the same guarantees as a new computer, opting for a computer with better specs may mean it will last you longer. 

3. Check the PC's condition

It's worth checking the condition of the PC in the refurbishment notes - if there's anything that you need to know about the condition of the device, the seller will note it here. That way, you can be sure the refurbished PC you're buying is in the condition you expect.

4. Compare prices

As OnBuy offers a platform for a wide range of verified sellers, it's worth checking out the range of prices available for refurbished PCs from those different sellers. That way, you can be sure you're getting the best deal on these great desktop PCs.

5. Pick top PC brands

Whether you're looking for a Mac or a PC (you can check out the benefits of both in our PCs vs Macs blog), there are refurbished computers from lots of top brands. Choose from renowned names with our selection of refurbished Dell PCs, refurbished HP computers, refurbished Apple Macs, and more.

All of these are known for their reliable hardware and long-lasting performance. With a wide variety of models available, you're sure to find the perfect refurbished desktop computer for your needs.

By following these tips, you can make sure you find the best refurbished PC for your needs on OnBuy.
