Here we list some equipment we have rebuilt or have a severely reduced price as clearance items.
We don’t buy second hand items, everything here is from old stock or our recycling and rebuilding of donated items. Most rebuilt PCs are sold on the basis of the time and any new parts we’ve replaced or added. In many cases the rebuilt machine is faster than a low spec. new system (which we don’t sell, but you see on the high street).
When you normally see older machines for sale they often have original disk drives in them. As these are the components that wear out most often, we replace these on machines we rebuild, with new fast SSD technology. This gives an approx. 5x boost to boot up and disk access speeds which makes most second hand systems feel much faster than new systems using traditional disks.
Second hand machines are all supplied fully configured, so you don’t have to mess about with Windows version updates, drivers etc. We do all the technical preparation, the same as if you were to get a new generation machine from us.

Based on a DL160 G5 this was a mass produced data centre server. Its fairly powerful (for its time) but is noisy (especially on startup). Great as an experimental rig or running older software. We’ve installed mint 19.2 which runs well.
