If you would like to upgrade to a new computer, Advanced Computers makes it easy to trade-in your old laptop, netbook, or Macintosh for a sizeable discount off one of the very latest models. Both our North Shore and Penrose branches carry a great selection of new computers so simply bring your old computer in for appraisal, and you can trade up to a new model with a minimum of fuss.
What types of computers do you accept for trade-in?
Advanced Computers accepts a wide range of computer for trade-in including laptops, netbooks, Apple iMacs, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
Unfortunately we do not accept trade-ins for Windows based desktop computers.
What condition does my computer have to be in?
Advanced Computers are happy to accept trade-ins of computers that are damaged or faulty (water damage not included).
My computer is quite old, can I still trade it in?
Provided your computer meets our criteria above, Advanced Computers doesn’t put age restrictions on trade-ins. Please be aware that very old computers (older than 5 years) have very little value and the trade-in price will reflect this.
How much discount will I get off a new computer by trading my old one in?
The trade-in value of your computer will depend on its age, specifications and condition. Our trade-in appraisals are very competitive and combined with our everyday low prices on new computers trading in is a handy alternative to selling your old computer privately.
Trade-in appraisal cost
Our online trade in appraisal is 100% FREE, but it is an estimate only and actual trade in price may differ if your computer’s condition is not reported accurately.
A full trade-in appraisal is also free provided you accept our trade-in offer and trade your computer in on a new model.
If you decide not to trade-in your computer after a full appraisal has been completed, we charge a small fee of $25 inc. GST to cover the time we spend carefully appraising your computer’s value.
