YOU DON’T NEED a BIGGER BOAT

In the 1975 blockbuster Jaws, Roy Scheider gets a good look at the size of the shark and says, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” For a better part of a decade, computers have had more power than consumers need, you don’t need anything bigger—regardless of the size of shark you are hunting. Even for hardcore gamers or video creators, most PCs have enough horsepower to take care of your needs.

There is a growing trend in buying refurbished, recycled, or used computers, especially from a reputable store like BrainWave Computers. Every trade-in goes through a vigorous inspection process to make sure it passes our standards for a computer. We wouldn’t sell anything we wouldn’t use ourselves. Plus, we guarantee and stand by every computer that leaves our store.

There are two primary reasons why buying a used computer continues to grow traction; price and the environment.

IS IT CHEAPER to BUY a USED COMPUTER?

You can save several hundred dollars buying a used computer that is just as capable as something new off the shelf. At Brainwave, all of our used computers have software that is as good as new including anti-virus and privacy protection software. You are supporting a local business where you can shake the hand of the person who stands behind their work.

BUYING a USED COMPUTER is GOOD for the ENVIRONMENT

This is the second most popular reason folks are buying used computers. When you buy a used PC, you reduce carbon emissions, conserve natural resources, and reduce landfill use—all while getting a great deal on a new PC from Brainwave.

WE DON’T JUST SELL, WE BUY and TRADE TOO!

You may want to upgrade to a new computer, but you don’t want to just throw away your old one. That’s where Brainwave Computer comes in. We will buy or trade-in your old PC.
