Consumer and Business grade models may look the same but they are very different propositions - below are some of the reasons why
Built to Last
If you want a notebook that can survive drops and spills, a business system is more likely to take the abuse. Business grade machines are also built with higher quality using higher quality components (processors, graphics cards, memory and hard drives)
Matte Displays with Better Viewing Angles
Glossy displays have become nearly ubiquitous on consumer notebooks, However, the glossier the display, the worse the viewing angles especially when working in brightly lit areas like classrooms.
Business keyboards are much more tactile and responsive in order to focus on productivity (aka typing!).
More expansion and connectivity options
Want to quickly plug in or unplug your laptop from an external monitor and the many peripherals you own? A business laptop is more likely to have a matching docking station or port replicator
Replaceable, Extended Batteries
Most consumer grade units come with sealed batteries with fewer cells for a lower maximum runtime between charges. Our business grade devices have replaceable snap in batteries and options for additional run time modules.
Long Life Span, More Serviceable
Because corporations hold onto their laptops for years, hardware vendors must keep offering parts and service. For that reason, business models usually stay on the market for longer and components, such as replacement batteries and AC Adapters, are available for many years.
Professional Grade Operating System
The Professional version of the operating system that comes on business PCs are another important difference many fail to consider . Consumer grade equipment comes with home grade operating systems that cannot be joined to your school network domain without an upgrade and additional cost.
#1 Better for your bank account.
By a lot! Our schools gain significant savings when buying refurbished products over newly manufactured ones. After all, we do offer products at upto 70% below MSRP. Savings like that mean greater flexibility for you elsewhere. What could you or your school do with that extra money?
#2 Better for the environment.
Lets look at the facts*: Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing segments in the municipal solid waste stream. Although nearly 100 percent of e-waste is recyclable, the current recycling rate of e-waste is not promising. Every refurbished computer represented a positive movement away from this downward trend and means that you schools is not only improving matters directly for your students but for the environment as a whole.
#3 Equipment that's tried and true.
Often it's difficult to know if a certain new model on the market has any inherent flaws until thousands of units have been bought and tested. All of our computers have already undergone this process, so you can trust that they are truly durable and reliable. Pre-vetted, de-bugged, and tailor-made for you.
Since 2001, our award-winning supply partner has refurbished over 4,000,000 desktops, laptops, tablets, and monitors. Starting with the very best business-grade hardware purchased off-lease from Fortune 500 corporations, every machine is subjected to a rigorous inspection and upgrade procedure to ensure that our schools receive the highest-quality hardware available.
