How To Find Laptops Used And in Excellent Condition


With many people having to tighten their budgets, it is no wonder that people are looking to save money on items that they use everyday. Many people may forgo getting a brand new laptop because of the cost that comes with some of these devices, but for those who still want a great laptop, minus the price, still have options in their purchase. Buying used laptops is the best way to get a great computer at only a fraction of the price. 

Step 1

Looking at used computer stores is a great place to start in the search for used laptops. Here you can find a plethora of used laptops that have likely been refurbished and ready to take home. Before you go you may want to research the type of laptop that you are looking for so that you can find what you need. You can also go to the store and ask a sales associate to help you find what you need. Many of the employees at these stores have a cast knowledge of computers and can help you find exactly what you need.


Step 2

Search online retailers for the best possible prices on used laptops. Some online retailers can offer heavily discounted prices since they do not have the responsibility of maintaining a store or hundreds of employees. This means that you will get these savings while still getting a great computer. Shopping this way also means you can easily compare used laptops prices without ever having to leave home. This means more savings for you because you do not have to pay for gas to travel from store to store.

Step 3

Used laptops can also be found on personal listing sites such as Craigslist. Here you will find people who are looking to sell their used laptop, usually for a great price. These laptops will often times only be somewhat cleared of information and you may have to do some clearing of data on your own once you buy it. Be sure to buy locally so that you can test the used laptop before you spend the money on it.

Step 4

See if anyone you know is selling a used laptop or has one that they want to get rid of. This is a great way to get a laptop for a lower price or possibly even for free. Some people simply keep old laptops that they no longer use because they do not know what to do with them. They may also have a computer that needs to be repaired and may simply give it to you.

Step 5

Look for used laptops at yard or garage sales. With the amount of people that now own laptops and computers it is not hard to believe that people would sell them at yard or garage sales. This also gives you a great chance to test out the laptop before you spend money on it. You can also haggle on the price and save money by getting it at a lower price.


Be sure to shop around to get the best price that you possibly can. When buying from online retailers be sure to make sure the store is reputable so that you get the best laptop for your money.
