The growing culture of startup and exploded technology adoption have created a massive demand for computer peripherals across the world. There are more than 3.6 billion internet users worldwide, and a sizeable share of these also access the internet through PCs or Laptops. In addition to that, companies like Cisco, Avaya and many others have deployed hundreds of thousands of powerful servers in data centres and big office premises. It’s clearly evident that we are surrounded by machines every time, eventually heading to machine era.

But have you ever thought about the adverse effects of these computing devices on nature and on our personal life? Are we able to visualise the price we are paying for having these machines runs round the clock 365 days a year?

During the manufacturing of every IT asset, some amount of carbon-di-oxide is released into the planet. According to the world’s leading laptop and PC manufacturer DELL, nearly 373Kg of CO2 is generated in the manufacturing of each Dell E6430 laptop.

As companies manufacture a number of PCs, Laptops, Servers and other computing devices, the environment is polluted with extra carbon dioxide. It results in increasing greenhouse effect which eventually makes the planet warmer than it would be naturally. This is one of the major reasons behind increasing global warming.

So, is there a possible way to reduce the carbon footprints in our daily life? Yes, by using refurbished IT asset.

“There are several advantages of using refurbished IT assets. The refurbished IT assets not only extend the life of used assets but also decreases the demand for new ones. Besides, it comes at a very affordable price,” says Mahendran Kathiresan, Founder – Dad & Dude.

But the biggest challenge is the acceptance by the shoppers. Unfortunately, despite all the benefits offered by refurbished products people see it as an old product some is trying to get rid off.

People in India, especially, are not completely aware of the concept of refurbished products. The refurbished products do not necessarily mean the severely damaged repaired products. Many times, people return the It assets after few days due to minor issues like a faulty battery, camera, keyboard or cracked hunches. These issues could be easily solved by replacing the components without interfering the under the hood chipset or architecture. Once replaced, these products perform as good as new ones.

“Especially at Dad & Dude we test all the IT assets using PC Doctor Standard Test tool widely used in the market. It provides complete insights of the components sitting inside and also the health of the same. Once identified, problems are taken care of by our experts,” adds Mr. Mahendran.

Interestingly, the refurbished IT assets also carry a warranty, like the new products. For an example, Dad & Dude offers 6 months warranty on all the refurbished products sold to their customers.

While many people agree to the fact that refurbished IT assets offer many advantages, the fear of sub-standard performance is clearly visible. Many vendors are tricking buyers by selling old and faulty products in the name of ‘refurbished’. Therefore, it’s equally important to check the credibility of the refurbished products seller.

All said and done, refurbished IT assets offer a great deal to startups who always look to optimise their expenses without compromising the performance.
