Buying used computers. Is this safe?
I have just bought some used computers for one of my clients. Besides the considerable cost saving to purchase a used computer we have had a very good experience.
If you buy from an Ebay seller check out that seller for any issues. The sellers are very concerned about getting bad reviews so I have found them to be usually a good risk.
Make sure you get a valid operating system key so you can re-install the operating system from scratch. I would not just accept the installed system. You never know what "spy" software could be installed.
So look for a good seller rating and always format and re-install the operating system,.
