TechSoup's Refurbished Hardware Program has been going strong since 2006. Over that time, we've distributed nearly 100,000 refurbished devices, including desktop computers, laptops, LCD monitors, printers, and tablets.
Because refurbishing extends the life of IT equipment, it is one of the most environmentally beneficial things possible that any of us can do to acquire and use refurbished electronic devices of all kinds. The environmental impact of the TechSoup Refurbished Hardware Program surprised even us.
