2NDGEAR Certified as a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher

COSTA MESA, Calif., April 10, 2017 — 2NDGEAR, a subsidiary of Insight Investments, LLC, today announced that it has been certified for the fourth year in a row as a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (MAR), authorizing 2NDGEAR to preinstall Microsoft Windows® onto its professionally refurbished computers.

2NDGEAR offers refurbished IT equipment including desktops, laptops, tablets, monitors, servers, storage, and networking equipment. All equipment is thoroughly inspected, wiped, and restored to the original equipment manufacturer specifications prior to being made available. As a MAR, 2NDGEAR’s refurbished PCs, laptops and tablets include genuine Windows and access to additional Microsoft software. Building on this, 2NDGEAR also offers customers valuable IT support and flexible warranty options.

“2NDGEAR serves several industries including the education and commercial markets. Being able to offer fully licensed Microsoft Windows at a more affordable price is a huge advantage for schools and companies as it gives students, faculty, and business users access to today’s most up to date technology,” said Leroy Wyman, General Manager, 2NDGEAR. “It is our mission to give businesses and organizations the advantages of world-class technology by extending the life of used equipment. By adding Windows to refurbished computers and laptops we are increasing the value and passing along the savings to our customers.”

The MAR program is only available to the largest and most qualified refurbishers. Partners in the program must follow strict requirements established by Microsoft to ensure high quality, professional refurbished devices are installed with genuine Microsoft Windows. While the vast majority of used computer resellers offer just hardware, 2NDGEAR expertly refurbishes computers with Windows to provide a fully functional solution.
