Affordable Tech! Laptops under $200


Reboot-IT securely refurbishes and repurposes old PCs, providing affordable technology to those in need.


Recylce your old PC's and help make technology affordable for others.

When you upgrade your technology systems, how do you dispose of the surplus
PCs that are no longer needed by your organisation? They might not be of use to
you, but they can still hold value for others.

Because used PCs often contain sensitive corporate data, you may be uncomfortable
when decommissioning them. Yet throwing away reusable PCs contributes to waste
and prevents them from being used by new owners. A way to solve these issues is
to contact Reboot-IT, a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher.

We will properly decommission your PCs by following stringent Australia
data-wiping standards. We will then refurbish the PCs so instead of ending up
in landfill or going overseas, these viable PCs will be supplied to businesses,
schools, non-profits, government programs and other eligible customers that
need access to the benefits of technology that they cannot currently afford.

What is the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher program?

Microsoft created the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher program to increase the number of affordable and usable PCs across the globe. To accomplish this, organizations supply refurbishers with decommissioned PCs that may otherwise have been destined for a landfill. These PCs are refurbished by Microsoft Registered Refurbishers and then preinstalled with genuine Microsoft software and made available to businesses, schools, nonprofits, and other eligible customers who cannot currently afford new computers. To date, there are over 1,000 Microsoft Registered Refurbishers in more than 60 countries around the world.

To ensure your used PCs are properly decommissioned, all Microsoft Registered Refurbishers go through a thorough application process and Microsoft reviews and confirms the validity of each application before granting Microsoft Registered Refurbisher status.

In order to maintain this status, Microsoft:

  • 01

    Requires that Microsoft Registered Refurbishers submit regular reports about the computers they supply through the program and that they undergo audits.

  • 02

    Investigates any reports of license infringement.


Microsoft Registered Reurbishers worldwide are impacting the lives of thousands of deserving people:

  • Reboot-IT has supplied schools and organizations in third world countries providing children access to computers which otherwise would not be attainable.
  • In Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Council of Social Service has worked with the Education Bureau of the Hong Kong government to provide refurbished PCs to disadvantaged students.
  • In the United States, Operation Homelink supplies low-income military families with computers so they can keep in touch with loved ones overseas.
  • In the United Kingdom, Digital Links International has worked with more than 300 companies to recycle and refurbish computers and, as a result, has provided 1.5 million people in many of the world’s poorest countries with their first access to technology.
  • In Singapore, members of the Disabled People’s Association of Singapore refurbish PCs to supply to others within the disabled community.

Asset Lifecycles Extended: Top Corporate Remarketing FAQs Answered

Asset Disposal / IT remarketing

How do you ensure data security during the computer remarketing process?

At Reboot IT, we take data security very seriously, especially during the computer remarketing process. To ensure the utmost protection of data, we employ a rigorous protocol that includes the use of Blancco, a global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions.Blancco's data erasure software is designed to securely overwrite sensitive information, making it irretrievable by any means. Here's how we incorporate Blancco into our remarketing process:

  • Data Erasure: Each computer slated for remarketing undergoes a complete data wipe using Blancco's erasure software. This software is compliant with the highest data erasure standards, including those set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Department of Defense (DoD).
  • Verification Process: After the data erasure is complete, Blancco’s software generates a detailed erasure report that provides verifiable evidence that all data has been securely and permanently removed. This report serves as a certificate of destruction for your records.
  • Regular Audits: We conduct regular audits of our data erasure processes to ensure they meet all current legal and regulatory data protection requirements.
  • Staff Training: Our team is thoroughly trained in handling sensitive data and operating Blancco software to ensure consistent and secure data erasure practices.
  • Physical Security: In addition to data erasure, we maintain strict physical security measures at our facilities to prevent unauthorized access to the computers before, during, and after the data erasure process.

By utilizing Blancco's industry-leading tools and adhering to stringent security protocols, Reboot IT ensures that your data is completely secure, giving you peace of mind when choosing us for your computer remarketing needs.

Can individuals participate in computer remarketing, or is it only for companies?

At Reboot IT, our computer remarketing and recycling program is currently tailored to meet the needs of corporate entities, small businesses, educational institutions, and government organizations. Unfortunately, at this stage, we do not offer remarketing services directly to individual consumers. Our services are designed to handle the larger volumes and specific requirements that come with corporate and institutional clients, ensuring that we provide the most efficient and secure process for their IT asset disposition needs. We appreciate the interest of individuals in sustainable practices and encourage them to seek local options for responsible personal electronics recycling and remarketing.

What types of equipment do you take?

At Reboot IT, we accept a wide range of IT-related equipment for remarketing. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive solution for your IT asset disposition needs. Here is a non-exhaustive list of the types of equipment we typically handle:

  • Desktop computers
  • Laptops and notebooks
  • Servers and server racks
  • Networking equipment (routers, switches, modems)
  • Storage devices (external hard drives, NAS devices)
  • Printers, scanners, and copiers
  • Monitors and displays
  • Keyboards, mice, and other input devices
  • Smartphones and tablets
  • Projectors and audio-visual equipment
  • Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)

We strive to accommodate a variety of IT assets; however, if you have specific items not mentioned above, we encourage you to contact us directly to discuss whether we can accept them. Our team is dedicated to assisting you with your remarketing needs and ensuring that your equipment is handled securely and responsibly.

What happens to computers that aren't sold through remarketing?

At Reboot IT, any computers that are not sold through our remarketing program are handled with the same commitment to environmental responsibility and data security. Here's what happens to those computers:

  • Data Sanitization: First and foremost, any data remaining on the computers is securely erased using industry-standard practices to ensure privacy and data security.
  • Component Harvesting: If the computers are not viable for resale as complete systems, we may disassemble them and harvest usable components. These components can include RAM, hard drives (after data wiping), processors, and other valuable parts that might be reused or sold separately.
  • Recycling: For items that are not suitable for reuse or resale, we partner with certified e-waste recyclers to ensure that the materials are recycled in an environmentally friendly manner. This process adheres to all relevant regulations and standards, reducing the environmental impact and reclaiming valuable materials for use in new products.
  • Certification of Recycling: We provide documentation or certification of recycling to our clients, ensuring that they have a record of the responsible disposal of their IT assets.

By following these steps, Reboot IT ensures that all IT equipment, whether remarketed or not, is handled in a secure and environmentally conscious way, minimizing waste and promoting sustainability in the IT industry.

What are the benefits of computer remarketing for businesses?

Computer remarketing offers several benefits for businesses that choose to participate in the program with Reboot IT:

  • Space Efficiency: Clearing out old or unused equipment can help free up valuable office or storage space, allowing for better organization and potentially reducing storage costs.
  • Sustainable Practices: Remarketing contributes to environmental sustainability by extending the life of IT equipment, reducing e-waste, and minimizing the carbon footprint associated with manufacturing new products.
  • Data Security: Reboot IT ensures that all data on your used IT equipment is securely wiped using industry-standard practices, protecting your business from potential data breaches.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility: Participating in computer remarketing can enhance your company's image by demonstrating a commitment to environmentally responsible practices.
  • Compliance: Reboot IT's remarketing program helps ensure that your business complies with environmental regulations and standards for the disposal of electronic waste.
  • Efficiency: Outsourcing the remarketing of IT equipment to a specialized company like Reboot IT saves time and resources that your business would otherwise spend managing the resale or disposal process internally.
  • Support for Upgrades: The financial return from remarketing can be reinvested into new technology, supporting your business's growth and technological advancement.
  • Simplicity: Reboot IT offers a streamlined process for remarketing, making it easy for businesses to dispose of their IT equipment without the hassle of finding buyers or handling the logistics themselves.

By leveraging Reboot IT's expertise and services in computer remarketing, businesses can realize these benefits while ensuring their IT assets are handled professionally and ethically.

How does computer remarketing contribute to environmental sustainability?

Computer remarketing contributes to environmental sustainability in several key ways:

  • Extending Product Lifecycles: Remarketing gives a second life to IT equipment that might otherwise be discarded. By finding new users for these devices, we extend their lifecycles, reducing the demand for new products and the resources required to manufacture them.
  • Reducing E-Waste: The process helps divert electronic waste from landfills and incinerators, where it can release harmful substances into the environment. By remarketing computers, we are actively reducing the volume of e-waste.
  • Conserving Resources: Manufacturing new IT equipment involves significant consumption of raw materials and energy. Remarketing conserves these resources by reusing existing equipment, which is a more energy-efficient process than producing new devices.
  • Preventing Pollution: By keeping electronics in use longer, remarketing helps prevent pollution that would result from the disposal and manufacturing processes associated with electronic goods.
  • Promoting a Circular Economy: Computer remarketing is an integral part of the circular economy, where products are used for as long as possible before being recycled or repurposed, minimizing waste.

Reboot IT is committed to these principles of environmental sustainability, ensuring that the IT equipment we handle is remarketed in a way that supports the health of our planet.
