The GainSaver Business Model

GainSaver sells refurbished Mac and PC computer systems. Our huge inventory of used laptops, desktops and tablets comes from many different sources: large and small businesses, leasing companies, distributors, stores and individuals. GainSaver technicians thoroughly clean, test and repair these systems for sale to our customers.

Buying a GainSaver refurbished computer is just like buying a new computer. Navigate the GainSaver website to find the make and model of computer you want, choose your configuration options, select the quantity and then click the Buy Button.

You can purchase one computer for home, or dozens for your business. Whatever your needs, GainSaver makes buying used Mac and PC computers as safe and convenient as buying new.

And if you are looking for the lowest prices, free system configuration and guaranteed satisfaction – then refurbished GainSaver deals are even better than buying new.

Why Buy GainSaver Refurbished?

GainSaver sells refurbished Mac and PC systems for much less than the cost of new ones. But just as important as low prices, GainSaver takes the risk out of buying used. When you buy used products from an individual, you never know what you are going to get. It could be for sale because it doesn’t work right. And if you actually go to some stranger’s house to see the computer they are selling, you might even be at personal risk.

GainSaver is fast and friendly. Just call or click to order. And with GainSaver’s rigorous testing, refurbishing and reconditioning of every computer we sell, you can be sure that the product you are purchasing is in 100% excellent working condition. And you don’t have to take our word for it. You are guaranteed.

Your Satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed

GainSaver provides the best protection anywhere for your refurbished computer.

GainSaver 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee

If you are not totally satisfied, you can return your computer system to GainSaver for your money back, or in exchange for a different computer. No questions asked. You can return your equipment for any reason. Perhaps it works fine, but it doesn’t meet your requirements. That’s OK. We’ll take it back.

GainSaver’s Satisfaction Guarantee means you are guaranteed to have a computer system that is fully functional and meets your requirements.

Extended Warranty Coverage Available

Depending on the computer system you buy, or the importance it will have for your productivity, you have the option of purchasing GainSaver’s Extended Warranty coverage.

GainSaver’s Extended Warranty program is unique. You can extend it to 6 months, one year, two years, or even three years.

It’s simple. Under the Extended Warranty program, you can return your refurbished computer back to GainSaver for a free exchange – for any reason. The GainSaver Extended Warranty program protects you from malfunctions – and even obsolescence – for up to three years. Want a faster computer or a laptop with a bigger screen? Exchange it for different one.

Huge Selection

GainSaver has hundreds of models in stock of refurbished used Mac and PC laptop, desktop and tablet computers. And for each model, we have large quantities available.

Why is a large selection important? It saves you time, money and the potential problems that can happen when buying a used computer.

Easy Price Comparison

When you purchase a used computer online from a source like eBay or craigslist, you don’t know the buyer and you don’t know what you are going to get. And if you are looking for a specific model, the search can be very time consuming. But at GainSaver, you can quickly find the cheapest computer that meets your system requirements.

When you compare prices and features of different models available at GainSaver, you know you are comparing apples to apples – two refurbished Mac or PC computers with the same hardware and software configuration.

Get it Fast

You can order right now and have your refurbished computer shipped out quickly, because GainSaver has what you want in stock. On sites like eBay or craigslist, you can only select from what other people happen to be selling today, which may or may not meet your needs.

Make the Best Buying Decision

With a limited selection, you may buy more than you need, or even worse, a computer that is not powerful enough to run your software. But at GainSaver, you can find the perfect balance of cost vs. performance. For example, if you are looking for a refurbished MacBook Pro, you can browse GainSaver’s huge selection of MacBook Pro models and filter them by processor type, screen size, year of introduction and much more. This lets you easily compare costs for MacBook Pro models with similar features.

By narrowing your search to MacBook Pro models with the specifications you need, you can compare the results to find the best deals. Perhaps you require a Quad Core i7 processor in your MacBook Pro. On the left side of the screen, you can see the various filters available. Click on “Intel Quad Core i7” to show only those models. Now you can see the price difference between 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro models with a Quad Core i7 processor.

When you compare products sold on eBay or craigslist, every seller is different, some with good equipment, some not so good. There are too many unknowns to make useful comparisons. And you are limited to used computers that are being sold today, that may or may not meet your requirements.

Order in Quantity

Only at GainSaver can you order multiple units of the exact same refurbished Mac or PC at the same price, with the same hardware and software configuration of your choosing. After you find the specific model you want and select the configuration options that are best for you, just select the quantity.

You can buy one, two or 10 of any model. And every time you order the same thing, you will get the same thing, with exactly the same GainSaver Money Back Guarantee – something you can’t get from a private party who sells to you “As Is”.

Only GainSaver Gives You Free Customization

One of the best reasons to buy your refurbished Apple or PC computer from GainSaver is the free customization provided with every system. Nobody else offers the extensive range of customization choices you get from GainSaver.

Just use the GainSaver Configurator to select exactly the options you want, including hard drive, memory, optical drive and more, with the available options depending on the computer you want. This allows you to customize your system to get just the right mix of performance and savings you are looking for. For example, you can select additional memory if know you are going to need it for the software programs you use. Or, you might decide on a smaller hard drive to save money on a computer you know will only be used for browsing the web.

Additionally, you can configure your refurbished Mac laptop or desktop computer with just the version of the Mac OS you require, or even order a dual setup that includes Mac OS and Windows. With both the Mac and Windows operating systems installed, your Mac can be used for all your favorite Mac applications, as well as for the Windows software you want to run. Only GainSaver gives you this level of customization.
