The smarter way to procure IT
Circular Computing™ offers a smart and sustainable IT strategy for your school, college or university to procure IT.
The way we address procurement, much like the rest of our company, is based within the circular economy; with one thing in mind: sustainability, without compromising quality or cost.
With our unique remanufacturing process, we offer enterprise-grade, leading brand laptops for your educational organisation. When you want to upgrade or change to newer machines, we can take back the previous products to begin the remanufacturing process all over again.
Laptops for education
Every Circular Computing™ remanufactured product is ready to go from delivery.
Our remanufactured HP, Dell and Lenovo laptops come with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD hard drive and Windows 10 Professional installed as standard.
If you need something specific for your education facility, we are able to customise specifications of our core models to meet your educational IT needs. This includes the hard drive, screen, RAM or Operating System and more.
97% performance of equivalent new laptop models
Save up to 40% on costs compared to new
Up to a 3-year next day replacement warranty
Available through most procurement frameworks
Get more for your budget
With education budgets still tight, procurement can be a difficult task for many schools, colleges and universities.
Our remanufactured carbon-neutral laptops, from HP, Dell and Lenovo, are not only good for the environment, but they also cost up to 40% less compared to buying new too.
There is no compromise on quality either. Our products are remanufactured to the ISO9001 accredited processes, meaning every laptop has a complete inside-and-out refresh - guaranteeing consistent premium quality with every laptop.
Education procurement frameworks
Circular Computing™ products are available from your local reseller and through most education frameworks, including CPC, KCS, CCS, Everything ICT and more.
This enables schools, multi-academy trusts and local authorities to purchase technology directly to save time and help budgets go further.
Warranty for your peace of mind
We know our products are reliable but to give you peace of mind and remove any doubt, every single Circular Computing™ remanufactured laptop has a 3 year, next working day replacement warranty as standard.
Chichester High School
With the purchase of 114 remanufactured laptops, this forward-thinking school replaced their entire IT suite with Circular Computing™ laptops that included a full 3-year warranty at a fraction of the price of buying new.
Jim Turner, the Network Manager at Chichester High School, said "the Circular Computing™ product range felt exactly as new and was exceptional compared to the usual stuff you associate with second hand. This product felt more like brand new, so much so that I recommended it up to the TKAT Multi-Academy Trust.”
On top of the financial savings, there were significant sustainability benefits from their decision to buy Circular Computing™ laptops for education:
CO₂ prevented at manufacture
36,024 kg of CO₂ equivalent greenhouse gases prevented at manufacture
21,660,000 litres of water has been saved from the mining and production of new materials
68,400 kg of CO₂ equivalent greenhouse gases sequestered from the atmosphere
570 trees were planted in Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States, via our reforestation partners
Become part of the sustainability story
Our fully circular business model means at the end of their life, laptops are taken back, remanufactured again and then re-sold to another user. Instead of being thrown away after three years, as is traditionally the case, their life can be extended by ’re-looping’ them through the remanufacturing process.
Every part that can be reused is checked, tested and every laptop is given a cosmetic refresh – repainted and polished, both inside and out. At Circular Computing™, when remanufacturing a laptop into a new one, 99% of the materials are reused, with nothing thrown away. The final 1% of components that are removed are recycled for the materials to be used again.
