Newer is better...right? (and other information)

Is newer actually better?

Surprisingly, that's often not the case anymore. Progress in the desktop and laptop processor industry has been slowing for years now (see this semi-technical article by MIT on Moore's law). What that means is that properly refurbished computers (that's our part!) fill the needs of most consumers and businesses. In fact, they can do most of what the "Latest, Greatest, and Shiniest" computers can do, however, new computer resellers won't tell you that. We help you get exactly what you need and within your budget (and they're still smokin' fast). No more. No less. Really.

So, you tell us - does your grandma really need a brand new $1000 computer to browse family photos? Do most of your employees need the "Latest, Greatest, and Shiniest" to work on documents and crunch a few numbers? In fact, we've even found that even heavy users (gamers, graphic designers, video editors) get by with more than enough power on one of our computers, along with some of the offered upgrades. And guess what? It still comes out to be massively cheaper than a brand new computer, but performs just about as good (and in some cases, better). Don't take our word for it though, try one of them out. If they aren't up to your standards, let us know and we'll make it right.


Why are we here?

Well, that's a good question. We're an Austin based company that saw a need for people to get custom tailored, affordable computers for their home, office, and school (yes, we build every computer custom to your specs after you order!). It's kind of like seeing something stuck between someone's teeth. Once you see it, you can't unsee it - so we decided to do something about it.

We were tired of seeing people go out and empty savings accounts (or just spend much more than they needed) by buying brand new computers, when they were really only going to utilize a fraction of its power. Why not help those people save a few hundred bucks (or in the case of businesses, tens of thousands), contribute to helping the massive ewaste problem that we have, all while making sure consumers still have more than enough computing power to do everything they need to do and more? Of course, we like to make a profit too, and we'd be playing the naive card to ignore that, however, it's also pretty sweet that we get to help consumers and businesses make their money go further.
