The Story of your IBM Certified Pre-owned desktop

The Story of your IBM Certified Pre-owned desktop

The Certified Pre-owned desktop you buy from IBM.com has been fully tested and certified by trained technicians to verify every major component is in 100% working order.
The first step is receiving thousands of pre-owned desktops every month from corporate and academic environments. Our primary concern is making sure you get a fully functioning desktop, so the next thing we do is inspect every component.

Our inspection and refurbishment process includes but is not limited to:

  • Complete reformatting of hard drive, removing any trace of what the last owner had installed;
  • Full-function testing of hard drive, optical drive, memory, motherboard, keyboard and screen;
  • Examining desktop case for any damage;
  • Thorough airbrushing, cleaning and paint touch-up so your desktop looks virtually new.


  • We are a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (MAR). That means we install a MAR edition of Windows operating system on our IBM Certified Pre-owned desktops. When you boot up your desktop for the first time, you'll be prompted to register your operating system with Microsoft.

    "Slightly blemished" and "Scratch and dent" desktops

    "Slightly blemished" and "Scratch and dent" desktops

    We also offer desktops that have had less cosmetic touch-up performed. These are fully tested, cleaned and certified functional. Prices are discounted according to level of cosmetics.

  • "Slightly blemished" desktops will have minor scratches or nicks on the case or screen;
  • "Scratch and dent" desktops will have more noticeable scratches, and possible small dents in the case.


  • Every IBM Certified Pre-owned desktop we sell is backed by our 7-day money back guarantee and 3-month Quality Satisfaction Guarantee.
