All or our ECO-PC devices are recognized brand names such as Lenovo, HP, Dell, and Sumsung to name a few. The inventory of these products flow in from regular product refreshes done by various levels of government, large corporate companies, and financial institutions. Once received, these devices are subjected to a rigorous and systematic refresh that includes a full diagnostic of the hardware and then a new image of all software including the operating system.
This is when a batch purchase occurs. Subsequently, these devices are subjected to a strict and systematic check of all their mechanical components and the operating system is checked in the workshop by certified technicians.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS THAT A DEVICE MUST TAKE TO QUALIFY AS AN ECO-PC?
Each device must go through a long chain of quality control measures to even qualify as an ECO-PC candidate.
First, all appliances that are either too worn, abused, or esthetically damaged are immediately ruled out. These devices are disposed of in accordance with environmental standards through certified recyclers.
All of the qualifying devices are subsequently subjected to stringent compliance standards at our suppliers. At this time they are also thoroughly cleaned and reimaged to become Microsoft certified.
Upon final inspection and through the quality control process, if required, some components may be swapped out and in many cases upgraded to ensure a high standard of quality and service longevity.
What is the difference between a "used" device and a "certified refurbished" device?
Indeed, it is very important to differentiate between a "used" device and a "certified refurbished" device.
Once an appliance has been used, it is considered "used". "Used" devices come from many sources, either from individuals or businesses, often with older operating systems (for example, earlier versions of Windows), untested components and, unfortunately, can contain a data history which it is risky to use.
A "refurbished" device is completely rehabilitated in order to prolong its existence and its use. A "refurbished" device must undergo a well-defined set of steps in order to obtain a "refurbished" certification.
These include: verification and diagnosis of component status and viability, hard drive formatting, upgrading of various drivers, installation of an operating system, complete cleaning of the system inside and outside of the appliance, etc. guaranteeing a quality standard!
