Buy Refurbished Commercial Grade Desktop and Laptop Computers

A good quality office computer will cost between $1000 - 1800. This doesn't include the monitor, surge protecting power bar or UPS, network and monitor cables. Most companies on a budget will instead buy a home grade computer at $600 - $800 and end up with a system that has a much shorter lifespan and higher maintenance costs.

Helia offers office-grade refurbished lease-back computers to our clients. These computer often come from oil and gas or other large companies who invest in the better computers but have fully depreciated their cost and so are replacing them. These computers are high quality computer at a fraction of the cost.

Why We Recommend Refurbished Computers & Laptops to our Customers

Important Features of Office-Grade Computers

Commercial grade servers, laptops and computers have better components that will last longer. They are also more upgradable and thats why we recommend them. DO NOT BUY CONSUMER GRADE REFURB EQUIPMENT. Consumer grade equipment is lower grade and will not last.

There are two things we look for with commercial desktop computers or laptops. 1) They must be at least an Intel i5 proccessor. 2) They must be upgradable to at least 16G. 3) They come with a "Professional" version of Windows and not a Home version. They These requirements ensure that the computer will perform well in the next few years in a business office. Many computers from 3-4 years ago were sold with 2G of memory. Today we only ship out computers with at least 8G of memory in them. Make sure your refurb can handle more memory.

Hard drives should also be given strong consideration of replacement. Hard drive to wear out and fail and so replacing them when you get your refurb is a good idea. No one like to loose files and data. We recommend replacing your storage with SSD or Solid State Drives. These are more expensive but will give a dramatic speed boost both at start up and also when using your computer.

Helia has been fabulous for us as a company. We have used them on five different projects now, and I am extremely impressed not only with the quality of the deliverables, but in some ways more importantly their can-do attitude and ability to implement our ideas when others thought them impossible.

I recommend them whole heartedly. Helia Technologies is a company that over-delivers on every aspect of the project at hand at a price point that is hard to beat.

Please email me if you have any questions about Helia Technologies.

"Darvin and the folks at Helia were asked to resolve some issues with our phone system software. They provided the necessary support through collaboration and by learning the software from a different market to specifically service our system. Additionally, Helia now provides our IT support services. We are very pleased with the services provided by Helia Tech and Helia Voice."

My company has hired Dar for telephone wiring services and yes, he met our expectations but there is something more about Dar that I wish to highlight : He is a not just a true networker but I would say, he is a "connector".

Dar and I have been at many meetings and he has never failed to say to me that he wants me to meet 3 or 4 people that he knows are ideal clients for me and that will make a difference to my business and profits.Without expecting any favors too! Dar goes that extra mile to keep a business relationship nurtured and strengthened.

I have collaborated with Darvin on several breakthroughs and forward-looking IT projects to which he ALWAYS came through with a solution where there appeared not to be as concepts were more advanced than current technologies.

His thought processes is methodical and detailed, approach is ethical and professional and solutions driven. He deliverers what he said he would, on time and on budget.

When we use Helia they exceed our expected deliverables and always within our agreed to budget. They work with us, not just for us, all the while keeping our best interests as a company at the core of the project.

We had been looking for a company that not only could get the job done as promised, on time and on budget but one that came with integrity. Helia provides us with a "mean what you say and say what you mean" attitude that has forged a relationship, not just a contract for a project. Our partners at Helia far exceed our expectations each and every time. So if you're thinking of using Helia, I would highly recommend you give them a try, I am sure you'll be impressed. Please email me if you'd like some more insight into Helia.

Darvin is a very well rounded contributor in terms of his strong skills both in the business and technical realms. He also has an engaging personality that is at the same time politely confident and warm. He also keeps all stakeholders in mind when delivering a project. I would count it an honour to work with him again in the future.

Robert Barte

I have worked with Dar on many occasions and he has proven himself over and over again to be a man of integrity and someone who is very knowledgable in his field. I would strongly encourage you to talk to him regarding IT Support and phones services in Alberta.
