Refurbished Desktop Computer: A Partnership between Goodwill-Suncoast and Bargain Computers and Electronics Delivers Affordable Technology to Consumers Laps



Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

Just in time for the holidays, shoppers can buy completely refurbished pre-owned laptops for just $ 209.99 at Goodwill.

Each laptop comes in a new box, pre-loaded with the Windows 7 operation system, a Dual Core processor or equivalent, an 80 GB hard drive, 1 GB RAM, and a full 90-day warranty.

The laptops come on the heels of a successful product launch earlier this year. In July, Bargain Computers and Electronics (Bargain) and Goodwill-Suncoast collaborated to sell complete computer desktop systems exclusively at Goodwill-Suncoast stores.

The laptops come from Bargain, a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher. It receives computers from organizations, businesses, and government entities that no longer need them. If the computers are in optimal condition, they go through a rigorous process that includes sanitizing data on the hard drives and testing producing a "like new" complete computer. Rather than ending up in landfills (where electronics contribute 70% of toxins), these computer systems and laptops can land in the hands of consumers who cannot afford or do not want to spend more for the technology.

We are thrilled to add laptops to our mix of products from Bargain, said Kym Bandy, vice president of acquisitions and allocations at Goodwill-Suncoast. We are two companies who share the ideals of sustainability and reuse, and ultimately our customers will benefit with high-quality, affordable products.

Bargains success is built on taking the old and making it new the science of reuse, said Brian Diesselhorst, Senior VP of Bargain. We always planned to add laptops to our Goodwill offerings and are pleased the community will have the chance to own affordable fully functioning laptops.

    Build your own, it’s the cheapest way you can get help from the internet setting everything together and what parts you need

  • loadead1

    what a retard…

  • worbat

    Lots of gateway at the moment.

  • loadead1

    Its got a 16 ex DVD-RW drive. LoL! 16 speed then?

  • ganymedeIV4

    There is a reason its refurbished…. Steer away, steer AWAY! #1 is the
    lack of any sort of graphics card I suppose. damn even a already used
    6200LE would be nice. its already refurbished with used parts so why not
    collect some old 6 series cards?!!?!?! does come with a 56k modem as you
    can see though… intergrated video and 56k modem. you’ll be surfing like a
    slide show!

  • dontcacheme

    4200+? i’ll pass. not bad for a beginner media pc though. get a warranty
    with it.

    So…I hate upgrading operating systems unless I _have_ to because of the learning curve. To that end I was still running Windows XP on a 32bit machine. It’s finally gotten to the point though that I can’t run Adobe Creative Suite on anything less than Windows 7 on a 64 bit machine. I looked into upgrading my computer. It was actually more expensive than buying this product, and I didn’t have the headache of changing all my programs from 32 bit to 64 bit and DAYS OF MAYHEM. With this purchase I have just what I need–a fast, clean, machine to run just 64 bit programs on that with a little work I can network to my existing machine for increased productivity. I’ll update my programs from 32 to 64 as time goes on but this was a really great solution at a really great price! Although my needs were very specific I would recommend this product to anyone.

    I purchased this Dell Optiplex 745 with Windows 7 Professional for one very important reason: My computer is running on Windows XP and Microsoft will stop supporting XP on April 8 this year. Without regular security patches from Microsoft, my computer will be vulnerable to hackers, even though it is protected by anti-virus and firewall software. The low price of a refurbished computer makes buying this Windows 7 Pro computer is a viable alternative to OS upgrade, which has its own set of problems.

    I bought this Dell Optiplex 745 from EasyBuyCafé. It is very clean inside and out, with only minor marks on the top of the case. It was well protected during shipment. It arrived wrapped in thick bubbles in a strong cardboard box. The computer came without the dual monitor graphics card. It was an oversight by the seller. It was later sent to and installed by me. Customer service was excellent. My e-mails were answered within hours. I had not used the telephone tech support. So I cannot speak to that. Amazon shoppers who buy from other sellers may have a different experience.

    This computer is fast. It is powerful in terms of processor speed (4.3 GHz) and the amount of RAM (4 GB). There is plenty of storage room in the 750 GB hard drive. The DVD/CD drive can read and/or write DVD, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD, CD-R, and CD-RW. It will not read Blu-ray discs. This computer features dual-video output, provided by a DMS-59 graphics card with a single 59-pin DMS-59 connector. It supports two monitors with VGA connectors. A DMS-59-to-dual-VGA splitter cable is included in the purchase. The graphics with 285 MB of video memory is okay for business application, but woefully inadequate for video games. Shoppers who want to play video games with this computer need to upgrade to a more powerful graphics card (See note). This computer also comes with a TP-Link wireless card. I connect my computer with an Ethernet cable. I will have to leave the wireless connection to other reviewers.

    A generic keyboard and a generic mouse come with the purchase. They were cheaply made. The mouse died after the first use. The Dell computer was stuck at the logo page because it couldn’t detect the mouse. The keyboard feels mushy and occasionally makes double entries when my fingers linger a bit too long. But these are minor issues. Even without the keyboard and mouse, this Dell Optiplex 745 is a good buy.

    Note: To play video games with this computer, check out this 2GB graphics card: EVGA GeForce GT 610 2048MB DDR3, DVI, Mini-HDMI, Graphics Card (02G-P3-2617-KR)

    I read Big Al’s review and followed his lead by using EZBuy Cafe. I originally was just looking for a Windows 7 computer to replace my ailing and soon to be outmoded xp. I wanted to avoid Windows 8 as I find it frustrating. It’s important to look at the details and get the best microprocessor (3.4 ghz), most ram (4 gb), and largest hard drive (750 gb) for the money. I also think Windows 7 professional is the best version of 7. I couldn’t have bought the parts and windows 7 pro software for the price…. (and I don’t have the skills to put them all together anyway.) I was able to load all my old programs and files easily. I did have to search for a few drivers for my strange music hardware, but they were all out there. EZBuyCafe did a good job of packaging, and I was happy to see that they included the back-up disk for Windows. I trust they have gone through the right hoops to make this a legal Windows refurbished computer. So far, the generic mouse and keyboard they supplied are holding up. Should last until Microsoft stops supporting WIndows 7 (which I hope is at least 10 years away)

    Our old XP machine was getting slower and slower so I purchased this unit as a replacement. Works great. Did have to contact the company about the software registration but they were helpful and honest.

    This PC came earlier than stated and packed very well. The PC itself came loaded with great software and unlike some PCs came with the Windows disk. I had to contact the seller and got a very prompt reply. The price was also very competitive. I am very happy with this purchase and I would buy from this seller again. Nothing but happy!

    I’m usually leery about getting refurbished products, but this computer far exceeded my expectations! Super fast, plenty of RAM, WiFi. And the price couldn’t be better. Even the customer service was outstanding! Would most definitely recommend this computer and the company (EzBuyCafe)!

    Nothing fancy about this machine but certainly worth what I paid. It arrived in good condition in reasonable time as I chose standard shipping. It is an interim machine until I save the money for a top of the line iMac.
