What is HP Renew?
HP Renew is a program established by HP as an outlet for IT equipment that has come out of the factory, but ended up without a home. This could be as a result of a cancelled order, over production, test equipment, demo equipment from shows etc or product returns. The unit go back into the factory, it undergoes the full manufacturing process again, gets stringently tested to HP New Standards before being given the seal of HP Quality, and is then distributed as HP Renew, sometimes at up to 30% off the original Retail Price.
What are the advantages of HP Renew?
There are two. The first is price. HP Renew units offer an alternative to brand new for customers who want to extend their IT budgets. HP Renew Units can be up to 30% lower than the original recommended sale price.
The other reason is because it is a responsible environmental choice. Most companies nowadays have green objectives aimed at reducing their carbon footprint. So start making sustainable choices today by choosing to redeploy products otherwise destined to be waste.
I'm not sure, I still prefer new.
