Used Desktop – the obvious office computer
Are you looking for a new computer for the office or workplace? At Refurb, we take pride in putting together a range of desktops that ensure you can find exactly the computer you are looking for. Thus, we have everything from the cheap desktop computer to the more powerful workstations that can handle almost any task you expose them to. In addition, we have various form factors, so you can find desktops in the size you want; both physically and in terms of hardware.
The small desktop computer – the Tiny editions for the discerning
If you don't want to have a large computer that occupies a lot of space, we have various desktops in the size "Tiny", which are all desktops that can be virtually hidden away; for example, on the back of the screen or by few means attached under the desk. These are such small machines that you can hide them away in almost any situation and get a tidy office and desk without a large box.
Desktops in larger form factors give dynamism
Where the smaller desktops provide opportunities to store the computer away, the larger computers allow for a little more dynamism and customization. This way you can buy and replace hardware a little easier – including ram, graphics card and hard drive, as the larger case provides space for a little more.
The desktop computer with the larger case will occupy a little more space, but you will also get a slightly more powerful PC for the money – and thus the larger form factors are usually more "value for money", where the smaller Tiny versions are for the discerning user who just wants be able to store the computer away.
The most powerful desktops are called workstations
When it comes to used desktops and the key word is performance, the answer is workstations – these are the most powerful computers, which are composed of extra powerful hardware and thus ensure that you get a used desktop computer that can handle all the tasks you expose it to. In other words, an ideal work machine that can assist you in your work tasks every single day.
Most often, these workstations have both plenty of RAM and dedicated graphics cards – and at the same time some large hard drives so you do not run into limitations, whether you use the computer for daily office tasks, graphic work or surfing and games, etc.
Which used desktop computer should you choose?
Many people are in doubt about what to look for when buying a new computer – this applies especially to the hardware in the computer, but also the size of the cabinet and which screen to buy with it. Most people want a cheap desktop computer, but it must not be the most important parameter – it is far more important to find out what you need the computer for, and then find one with the size and hardware that matches your needs. . We are happy to guide you through your purchase of a "new" used desktop computer – and below you will find some of the experiences we have gained in advising our customers.
To help you get the most out of your purchase of a used desktop computer, we have developed a guide so you can choose the right computer.
Cheap Home Office Desktop
When choosing a desktop computer for the home office, one of the first questions you need to ask yourself is what tasks you expect to use the computer for. If it is just daily word processing tasks, emails and surfing on Facebook etc., it is not necessary with such a powerful computer, as it is if you juggle large Excel sheets, graphics programs and other demanding programs – and thus the cheap desktop computer will be a nice choice. If the answer is that you have many tasks running (including for example Excel and graphics programs), it will probably be advisable to have an i5 or i7 processor and possibly a dedicated graphics card. You coulld also upgrade RAM, but it depends a lot on your needs and your budget – if, as mentioned above, you have many things open at the same time, a RAM upgrade can help your computer from becoming slow.
Used desktops and for the workplace
In the workplace, time equals money – and thus it often pays off to buy an extra powerful computer, so you never run into limitations. However, the above rule applies – if you are juggling a lot of tasks, be sure to buy a computer that can handle it so you will not be disappointed with the speed and performance of your computer.
We recommend SSD hard drive for your desktop
When it comes to hard drive, we almost always recommend upgrading to an SSD hard drive. An SSD hard drive is a faster hard drive than traditional disks – and it will be noticeable both when you start up the computer and in your daily use of the computer. If you are in doubt about what an SSD hard drive does, we have reviewed it in a video – and in the video you can hear, among other things, why it is in most cases a really good choice.
