Save Valuable Cash with Refurbished Laptops, Desktops and Servers

Unbeatable Pricing on Servers, Laptops and Computers.

Refurbished computers are the best use of finate cash for small business.  We've been using them exclusively ourselves since we opened our doors in 2006.  Since then we've developed relationships to access lease-back computers and get the best prices on the best computers for our customers.  To learn more, join our mailing list at

Warranty and Lifespan

We select only the best laptops from the lease-back inventory and make sure the computers are working properly before you get them.  These computers have been fully working in their previous life and we expect them to do so.  In fact in our experience of over 10 years, we get multiple years of trouble free use of them.  All refurbished equipment comes with a 30 day warranty period.

Commercial Grade Equipment

The refurbished equipment we sell is commercial grade equipment and starts significantly more expensive than the consumer grade equipment you find at the local office supply store.  Their components and design are significant better.  We haven't had any issues with laptops overheating as is common with consumer grade equipment.  Design is also much better.  For instance, many of the laptops have keyboard drainage holes on them.  These are designed to handle the accidental class of water that is spilled on the keyboard.  With consumer grade computers, the computer would be ruined but with these laptops, the liquid simply drains out the bottom.

Delivered with Windows 10 Pro

Many of these computers came with Windows 7 or 8 originally.  We deliver them with a full version of Windows 10 Pro so you have the latest business grade version of Windows to get the most out of your new computer for the longest period.

Minimum of an Intel i5 Processor

There are a lot of different CPU processors available including Atom, Core Duo, Centrino, i3.  They faster i5 and i7 processors are designed for business use.  We ensure that the computers we sell all have a minimum of an Intel i5 processor

Recommended Upgrades

There are certain upgrades we recommend to get the most out of our refurbished equipment.   Most of these units originally shipped with 4G of memory but because they have business grade processors and chipsets, they have maximum memory capacity of 16G or more memory.  We recommend upgrading the memory to the maximum available.  This is a low cost, high value upgrade which will make your computer faster for longer.  Solid State Drives (SSD) are also a very good investment.  These substantially increase the performance of your laptop or computer for a low cost.

Monthly Super Saver Specials

We send out a monthly email that includes a laptop, a desktop and a server at an incredibly low price.  We recommend you sign up for our monthly email at

Why A Smart Switch Network Is Better

Smart switches are usually two times the cost of a normal switch. If your network switches are physically in a different room, a different building or a different city, its essential that you use smart switches.  Here's why:


1) Web Interface and Ip: You can ping the switch remotely to make sure it is on and responding. In addition you can use a web browser to log onto the switch and see which ports have cables plugged into them, what data volumes are and much more

2) Auto Loop Detection: It will automatically turn off ports that have cables plugged in wrong and are causing network loops that can take down your network.

3) VLAN: Allows you to secure your network by segmenting traffic by port and device so that some devices like phones have no access to (for instance) internet or computer servers.

4) PoE: Powered ethernet is not standard but provides power to devices like phones, ip cameras and wifi access points. With a smart switch, power can be cycled to remotely reboot equipment.

5) SNMP: Smart switches report operational data back to your central network server so you can see how long the switch has been running, how much data is passing through and other useful data.

6) QoS: Voice and video data can be given priority over things like file downloads so that they don't have quality issues.

7) Spanning Tree: Allows redundant links to your network backbone so that if one link fails, the second on takes over.  If you try this without Spanning Tree, you will generate network loops that will take down your network.

8) Port Mirroring:  Allows you to duplicate traffic on another port so it can be captured an analysed. Its a great support tool that's super useful and impossible without port mirroring.

Three Ways To Add Cordless To Your Old Nortel Phone System

Nortel Phone Systems were prolific 20 years ago.  Here in Alberta practically all offices used them.  They're still very common and today people want cordless phone options.

Here are three ways to go cordless with your old Nortel phone system.

1) Use the Nortel cordless phone designed for the system.  This is the T7406.  We don't recommend this option as it has bad review.  People that use this phone, don't like it.   Primarily because wireless technology has changed in the last 20 years an this is old technology with bad reception and poor battery life.

2)  Use a Nortel ATA with a current generation Analog cordless phone.  The standard analog cordless phone can be bought at Staples, Bestbuy or any other store.  All cordless phones now use DECT 6.0 technology which is wireless and gives good range and better battery life.

3)  Use a Plantronics or Jabra headset with your Nortel desk phone.  There is a headset jack on the back of your Nortel phone. Simply plug in a commercial headset and handset lifter into your current Nortel desk phone and enjoy hands free working.
