It’s important to mention that sales value of a used laptop depends on the laptops condition, model and just as importantly the state of the laptops hard drive. In fact, the hard drive can impact the second-hand value of a laptop more than any other factor. For example, if the hard drive requires unlocking, wiping, removing and shredding the cost of performing these tasks can often be the reason why ITAD companies will often give a lower than market valuation for your retired business laptops. With that said, selling used company laptops for reuse can be one of the best methods of recycling your organizations computer e-waste.

Let’s look at how much cash you can get for selling used or surplus company laptops. Listed below are 4 popular second-hand business laptops, their purchase value at the time and what you can expect their value to drop by after a year or so of use:

1. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano: This laptop stands out as one of the best overall business laptops of its time. This particular laptop would have offered an excellent level of performance, long battery life and remarkable portability. A new ThinkPad X1 Nano would have cost approximately $1,208.99. Even selling used Lenovo ThinkPads would see a good return on your original investment. In fact, if buying a used Lenovo ThinkPad that’s been fully refurbished you could expect to pay 80% of its original cost. If you want to sell professionally used Lenovo ThinkPad and laptops YBC can help. YBC buys used corporate laptops and is one of the best buys of used laptops in terms of their commitment to environmentally responsible laptop recycling and disposal.

2. HP Dragonfly G4: If you’re looking for an alternative to the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, the HP Dragonfly G4 is an outstanding choice. It combines a sleek almost aerodynamic design with solid, reliable performance. In fact, HP business laptops have a great all-round reputation. However, at the time of writing this article purchasing a new HP Dragonfly Notebook PC G4 could set you back $1,324.96 ($100 more than the Lenovo ThinkPad). Perhaps more notably, a seller of the used HP Dragonfly Folio G3 2-in-1 - 13.5" Touch, Intel i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Windows 11 Pro would realistically hope to get over $900 (at the time of writing this article). Obviously, companies that buy used HP laptops and ThinkPad from companies buy in bulk and when you factor in removal and refurbishment costs don’t pay anywhere near the resell value. With that said, if you want to recycle or sell professionally used HP laptops YBC can help. YBC will consider buying most used business laptops providing they are in great condition.

3. Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (2022, M2): For Mac enthusiasts, some say this MacBook is the best choice for most business users. With its powerful M2 chip, stunning Retina display and macOS ecosystem, it’s a reliable work companion and it too started at a new price of approximately at $1,299. Its second-hand price dropped to 84% shortly after its release. For an ITAD company buying used Apple laptops its highly likely they be able to sell them. If your business is decommissioning its laptops and has used Apple laptops that you want to sell or recycle then please call or email YBC today for a price or CLICK HERE.

4. Dell Precision 5680: As a workstation laptop, the Dell Precision 5680 excels. It’s designed for professionals who require high performance, reliability, and precision for specialized workloads. Dell has a great history for producing office workhorse laptops and the second-hand market for used Dell laptops is pretty reliable. Naturally some laptops get treated better than others and therefore due to their condition don’t always hold a great second-hand price. However, if your company is updating its laptops and looking to sell your old, used Dell laptops YBC can help. In fact, even if you have worthless business laptops YBC may be able to help recycle them at worst and even reclaim parts at best.
