Why buy a refurbished desktop?

If you need a powerful desktop computer for the lowest price possible, consider getting a refurbished desktop. What’s so great about refurbished desktop computers? They often look like brand new computers, and come with the same great warranties you’d expect from new devices, but at much better prices.

Our refurbished desktop computers are carefully repaired by our experts. Whether you want a computer with a gaming monitor, an Intel Core i5 processor, or are simply looking for the best computer deals, we're here for you! Plus, for all of you who want to do your part in saving the planet, refurbished is where it's at. And yes, all items on Back Market come with a 1-year warranty and 30 days to change your mind.

While you can save on desktop computers on Back Market every day (and not only for Cyber Monday or Black Friday), you may be wondering what to splurge on during this season of savings.

Will there be a lot of desktop computers on sale this year?

Chances are there will be a lot of ways to save on desktop computers this year. You can expect to see price cuts across the board. 

We always recommend that you check out the refurbished options before you head to a big retailer. Below you'll find our favorite desktop computers to consider.

Our favorite Cyber Monday deals

Windows desktops and all-in-one computers are great choices this year because so many of us are still working from home. Desktop computers offer much more comfortable usage than laptops, while often being cheaper and more powerful. 

Before you go all in on a new desktop, you need to figure out whether you want a PC or a Mac. These two options feature very different operating systems, and you're probably aware of the rivalry between the two! I'm personally a Mac person and could never imagine myself with a PC.

If you're a PC person, make sure to check out deals on the Dell XPS 8940. Although it's not a desktop, you could also go for the Google Pixelbook which comes with a built-in Intel Core processor. 

If you're a Mac person like me, consider the Mac Mini. This thing is small enough to fit inside a bag and light enough to carry to work, but of course, you will need to have a separate monitor/keyboard/mouse wherever you may want to bring it. It turns out some desktops can be portable.

Get a deal on an iMac for legendary productivity

If you’re looking for an inexpensive iMac, the refurbished market is your best bet. These computers are usually pretty expensive, unfortunately, despite looking very sleek. But they are great for productivity and more comfortable to use than a laptop. Their minimalist design and aluminum edges make them quite attractive in terms of looks, and any photo/video editor would love to own one of these machines. 

But, if you plan on working with long-form professional video or other memory-intensive projects, make sure to buy a model that has upgraded internals and a relatively new processor. Graphic designers and professional video editors will need the additional RAM and storage options that the iMac 27" boasts. It's a great option for creative professionals thanks to its super-sized display 😄


And if you’re not ready to buy, no need to rush. We try to have some of the most competitive deals year-round, so come back and get your Mac Pro deal whenever you have the time and money to do that really big creative project you were always dreaming of. At Back Market, they're always on sale 😄


The ultimate Apple desktop deal: The Mac Pro

As a video editor myself, I’ve long dreamed of owning a Mac Pro. And this year, if you really want a machine that has the power to execute even your longest and most elaborate creative projects, you should be looking for a Mac Pro deal.

The MacBook Pro desktop computer is Apple's most powerful option. It's made from stainless steel boasts incredible CPU capabilities. It has an Intel Xeon processor with 28 cores, which is the most that we've ever seen in a Mac. The name of this computer does it justice, it truly is made for professionals.

New Mac Pros are really expensive, but thanks to the refurbished market, you can get the older version of the Mac Pro that’s still plenty powerful for about the same price as a new MacBook. That’s quite amazing if you ask me. We've got awesome deals on Mac Pro desktop computers right now.

And if you’re not ready to buy, no need to rush. We try to have some of the most competitive deals year-round, so come back and get your Mac Pro deal whenever you have the time and money to do that really big creative project you were always dreaming of. At Back Market, they're always on sale 😄

Should I wait to shop for electronics deals?

No way! You don't have to wait to get a deal on any of the electronics we mentioned above. You certainly don't have to wait for Black Friday or the Monday after. Many retailers will be offering discounts on desktop computers this November, and there will be a lot of pressure to buy. 

We’re fighting overconsumption and e-waste, so we only want you to buy what you absolutely need when you’re 100% ready. One of the easiest ways to reduce your impact on the environment is to use your devices for longer and to buy refurbished ones. We're passionate about doing our part, and we want to provide you with a place where you can too.

Maybe after reading this, you realized that a laptop deal is a better choice for you. Or maybe you still need some time to save up more money to buy the computer you really want. Whichever the case, it’s okay. 


Luckily, you'll find great deals on Back Market all year long, so you don't have to worry about making a snap decision. You can take the time to think about what you require and then make a purchase (and save) when it works for you 🙂
