Hardware Associates
Experts in sustainable computing solutions

For over 24 years, Hardware Associates have been providing premium quality Dell, HP, Lenovo and Apple repurposed IT hardware to the education sector, as well as commercial and charitable sectors. We work closely with our customers to provide detailed advice to specify the right IT equipment, including options to customise and upgrade machines as needed to provide a solution perfectly balancing cost with performance.

The associated cost savings of repurposed IT equipment allows organisations to purchase faster, higher specification machines which, as new devices, may well fall out of their budget. By providing enhanced, personalised customer service and 1 – 3 years warranty on all our products, we enable them to take full advantage of all the benefits repurposed IT can deliver, whilst assuring them of quality and reliability.

Our range includes desktop computers , laptops, tablets and a variety of accessories such as keyboards and monitors, all available with next working day delivery (UK mainland only)

High quality for up to 80% less

By choosing to shop with us, you’ll pay up to 80% less, giving you access to top of the range machines for your home, school, or business. All of our refurbished IT is rigorously tested and quality checked as per our Q20 Promise so you can buy in confidence. Our team are on hand, so please get in touch with any questions.

IT to exceed your expectations

With the widespread use of IT in almost every aspect of our lives, many of our customers have very different requirements - be it demand for a tough laptop to be used in an education environment, or a high end Apple MacBook for business and design purposes.

We're proud to understand your unique challenges and meet your requirements, based on decades of experience and expertise.

Whether you’re looking for a more affordable Apple Mac Pro, a new Dell desktop, a Thinkpad or simply spare parts, we’re just a phone call or an email away.

We are the ideal partner for organisations looking to source spares and carry out their own computer repairs. All our spares are checked and tested before dispatch to ensure that you receive reliable equipment that extends the life of your existing hardware, and that saves you money.

Client Testimonial

“I just wanted to drop a quick note (from my desktop!) to say a huge thank you again to you and the team... From start to finish the customer service has been excellent, with a special thanks to Matt for bearing with me. It is really rare nowadays to come across a business that treats smaller customers with low value orders as importantly as they treat their larger clients. Really impressive and appreciated.“
