Firm Sells Pre-Owned PCs for $599 on Up

Following a successful test run in Texas, Recompute has broadened its sales of affordable pre-owned PCs to the entire U.S. For the past year, the firm has offered customers in its home state top brand-name, remanufactured PCs for as little as $599.

Each system ships with a CPU, hard drive, color monitor, keyboard, mouse, fax/modem and pre-installed suite of software including Microsoft Works, Quicken, Netscape Navigator and Eudora Lite e-mail. Systems incorporate Intel 486 or Pentium chips with a Windows 95 option.

In addition, Recompute offers custom products, multimedia options, and upgrade alternatives such as larger hard drives instead of the fax/modem and software. Machines are packaged just like new products, with number-coded labels, an installation manual and even a surge protector.

The firm provides technical support, a 30-day money-back guarantee and an extendible limited one-year warranty. Recompute, Austin, TX, (800) 510-8414,
