Buy with confidence
Most laptop or desktop computers come loaded with either Microsoft Windows or Apple macOS preinstalled as the operating system (OS). Both of these operating systems have contact tracing built in to the OS. This means that your computer is watching you everywhere you go. While we won’t get into all of the things that Microsoft, Google, and Apple OS’s are capable of from a surveillance perspective, the same rule applies to them all.
It doesn’t matter how much security software you install on them. If the OS is manufactured by Microsoft, Google, or Apple, your OS is spying on you.
The bottom line, you ask? You MUST stop using all of their products as soon as possible. It is time to move to Linux.
What's it like using Linux?
We install the latest version of Linux Mint on our PC's and laptops - Cinnamon Edition. This is easiest Linux OS to get used to as it functions just like Windows.
Check out this video here of what the experience of using Linux Mint is like:
An option with our Linux machines is to opt for an additional layer of security in the form of encryption that is not enabled by default.
This ensures that your hard drive is protected from having any data stolen without your knowledge if the laptop was to end up in the wrong hands or be confiscated.
Please note: This additional layer of encryption is quite harsh. It is designed for those who want their laptop locked down from any unwanted intrusion. If you enter this password incorrectly 3 times, your machine may lock up permanently.
Keep in mind, if you forget this password or the machine malfunctions permanently, this also means you may not be able to recover the data. So, if you opt for this option, make regular back-ups of your data.
**Important note: After you place your order, you will receive a confirmation email. If you opt for extra encryption, please reply to the confirmation email and let us know what you would like your password to be. With this additional layer of protection, your machine will request 2 passwords from you; the first to access the hard drive, which cannot be changed, and the second to login.
For your peace of mind
What condition is this PC in?
We work hard to ensure we always source the highest quality PCs and laptops that are in great condition from reputable refurbishing specialists.
However, these computers are for people who prioritise privacy over perfection as we cannot guarantee perfection, as although we strive for excellent condition, they are not new and some will have minor use marks and will not usually come with the original box.
