“Organisations can save significant costs and demonstrate corporate social responsibility by looking at re-furbished computers over new replacements.
New work by MSc student Mauricio Alva Howes supervised by Prof Mark Jolly has provided evidence for a re-think.
Tests on the most typical uses of PCs in a work setting showed overall that the re-manufactured computers performed at between 93% and 97% of the level set by the new computer.”
