Affordable, Refurbished Computers & Laptops
We recycle e-waste, and provide low cost access to computer equipment for those who need it most.
Concession card holders (pensioner, disability, and low income)
and Not for Profit community groups.
Our standard desktop system costs $100 ($110 with Microsoft Office Suite). It comes with the following hardware at a minimum:
- Dual core processor
- 4 GB of RAM
- 320GB hard drive
- DVD Drive
- Keyboard, mouse, and LCD Screen
- Your choice of Windows 10 Pro
- Microsoft Office Suite (Additional cost of $10) or the free LibreOffice suite
We are usually able to offer laptop systems.
Like the Desktop systems, these come with either Windows 10 or Ubuntu LTS. They also come with MS Office Suite or Libreoffice preinstalled.
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee minimum specifications. We are able to guarantee that each laptop is configured to run responsively and will be fit for service.
Started in June 2002, we are a fully volunteer staffed registered not for profit association. Our mission is two fold. We help provide computers to disadvantaged groups and individuals at a price that is affordable. We also help to reduce the amount of e-waste that makes it’s way into landfill.

High Strength Magnets
We have a supply of reclaimed high strength computer magnets available. These are high strength neodymium magnets, usually with a magnetic shield on one side. They are perfect for pinning something down in a non destructive semi permanent fashion (attaching L and P plates to a car for example).
- A single magnet for $7
- A pair of magnets for $12
