    Stone Computers buyback

    I have been told about a buyback scheme where after 5 years stone will buy back for 5% of original value also the is a data scrubber built into all there pcs now has anyone took advantage of ether of these if so is it any good. (trying to get best value and as all prices are about the same looking at the added value.) I have put it in green due to the fact they pay you to recycle if they buy back.

    I have been told it is on all there equipment servers screens laptops etc i don't know how true that is but have been told its 5% so if i bought 1000 worth of equipment I get 50 for recycling and they take it away. that's good lol they pay me to recycle

    Thats means in 5 years they will be giving me the nice sum of 3500! im guessing it doesnt apply to machines we purchased last year? as that would be near 5k!

    Some Interesting Marketing by Stone, although I've seen people get far more that 5% off a Stone quote just by telling them "we're going with someone else."

    I'd heavily haggle them down and still want the guaranteed 5%
