About Refurbished Rugged Tablets
Rugged Tablets vs. Consumer Tablets
Have you ever held an Apple iPad and had an overwhelming fear that you might drop it? As pretty as they are, you would never use one in a demanding work environment. That’s where rugged tablets come in. Rugged tablets aren’t like your typical consumer grade tablets- and they’re not meant to be. These tablets have magnesium alloy chassis, elastomer or rubber corner guards, and multi-touch screens- meaning they can withstand tough conditions with the same forte as a rugged laptop. It’s true- these tablets meet the same Military Standard and Ingress Protection ratings that our rugged laptops do, including MIL-STD-810G and IP65 (for more information on these ratings, click here). However, if you simply can’t choose between a rugged laptop and tablet, we have good news- You can have them both-wrapped up, all in one with our computer-to-tablet models.
Rugged tablets provide a wide array of features that enhance and complement their ruggedness including:
- Anti-reflective and anti-glare screen treatments
- Connections and ports such as: USB, Micro SD, and Bluetooth
- On-screen QWERTY keyboard
The environmental impact of the tech we sell is important to us and to our customers. That’s why we’re proud to say that the tablets we offer are Energy Star, EPEAT and RoHS certified. Essentially, this means that our tablets meet and/or exceed green tech standards for energy conservation, materials selection, and product longevity.
Buying Refurbished vs. Buying New
Why buy refurbished? First and foremost, it’s a lot more affordable. New rugged tablets retail for anywhere from $2000-$5000, which can really eat into your budget. Buying refurbished allows you to get your hands on the same technology for about a quarter of the price.
At the same time, we realize that you might have reservations about buying refurbished, and we completely understand. We also agree that you shouldn’t put your trust in just any refurbishing shop- it’s very important to do your research. Our technicians are certified experts in what they do, and they take the extra time needed to thoroughly inspect and test every computer and tablet before they send it out. Your total satisfaction is paramount to us and our top priority is to provide you with products you’ll love. That’s why every rugged computer and tablet that we sell comes with an automatic Limited Lifetime Warranty, and we encourage our customers to reach out to us with any questions or concerns they may have.
What you see is what you get
When we post a picture of a refurbished tablet on our site, it’s an actual picture of a tablet from our inventory- not a stock photo from the manufacturer. We take the time to do this because we want you to feel confident in your purchase. Although every tablet and computer we sell is grade-A quality (unless otherwise noted), we don’t (and would never) try to pass them off as anything less than the tough, reliable, tools that they are.
