Join TechSoup for a webinar about procuring refurbished computers. Learn how you can get the computer equipment you need at the lowest cost while at the same time ensuring that you get high quality PCs that you can depend on.

TechSoup’s Becky Wiegand will interview Jim Lynch and Matthew Halden who run TechSoup’s GreenTech Initiative and Refurbished Computer Initiative, respectively. In addition, we’ll hear from a nonprofit with about their experiences, best practices, and tips.

This event will cover:

* Our 8 tips for choosing a reputable computer refurbisher when you need additional computers
* How factory refurbishment is different from other types of refurbishment
* Experiences that nonprofits have in using refurbished IT equipment
* Why refurbished IT equipment is the most environmental way to acquire and use IT equipment

* TechSoup’s work over the years to help develop the computer refurbishment industry
* All about reputable end-of-life recycling – for when you need to dispose of IT equipment responsibly

This webinar will cover basic to intermediate-level topics and is most appropriate for decision-makers, IT staff, and “accidental techies” who may be entrusted to make technology purchases for their organization. This intro-level webinar won’t go in-depth on topics about how to refurbish computers, network used computers and servers, or detailed technical specs for refurbished equipment.
