Having worked with hundreds of schools and colleges across the UK and Europe, and available on OJEU compliant frameworks, we are confident that we can save you thousands of pounds on laptop procurement. At the same time, you get real sustainability benefits to shout about to your students, parents and local community.
Unfortunately, large corporations rarely keep laptops after the 3-year lease or warranty period - and yet the technology is thin enough, light enough and powerful enough to last far longer. The increasing demand for technology places an ever greater burden on the environment, often resulting in the destruction of habitats and landscapes around the world.
The result is excessive resource consumption, climate change, conflict mining, human rights issues, pollution and e-waste.
But there is a better way....

Need to purchase on a framework?
Circular Computing™ is on the OJEU compliant Everything ICT Framework
Everything ICT enables schools, multi-academy trusts and local authorities to purchase technology directly to save time and money on procurement. There is no longer a need for three quotations to be gathered which makes it easy for schools to purchase our remanufactured carbon-neutral laptops.
30-day free trial laptop
The quality of our laptops is so good, people have difficulty believing that they are remanufactured second-user units. The only way to find out for yourself is to take a closer look with a no-risk, no obligation trial unit.
If you are not impressed, just put it back in the box and send it back – we’ll even pay for the return postage.
Of course, we think you will want to keep it and order a whole batch because you love it as much as we do!
