A used desktop computer being blanked using DBAN.

Many NCF members prefer to buy used or refurbished computers to save money over buying new hardware. NCF does not sell computers, but some of our members have made recommendations about good places to buy computer hardware, including used or refurbished computers and computer parts.

Refurbished computers

Many outlets sell discounted new computers that were factory-rejected for minor cosmetic flaws (scratches and dents) and term these refurbished.

Used and/or Refurbished computers

NCF does not endorse any of the companies on this list and we have no business relationship with any of them, but NCF members have recommended these:

Computers for Communities

Computers For Communities (C4C) is a local not-for-profit community organization that provides refurbished computers in exchange for your labour. You can earn a free computer by spending time rebuilding computers for other people.

C4C provides all the training you will need to rebuild computers, and, as a bonus, when you have earned your computer you will know how to repair it, upgrade it and keep it running, too.
