What condition is the hardware in?

All of our computers are fully tested and refurbished by Kramden geeks. They are reloaded with the original operating system, updates, drivers, and a suite of open-source software.

Can I buy individual parts or components?

Yes, but parts are only available during sale dates. We carry a wide range of computer components and legacy parts. Please stop by during a sale date to see if we have what you need!

Why does Kramden sell computers? Don’t they go to students in need?

Each year, Kramden receives thousands of donated computers. The majority of these computers are refurbished by our volunteers and awarded to deserving students in grades 3-12 across North Carolina (3,500 last year alone). In order to defray the costs of refurbishing these award machines, we sell a small amount of higher-end computers to the general public. All proceeds from these surplus computer sales goes back to funding Kramden’s core mission.

Does Kramden have an Ebay store?

Yes Kramden maintains an Ebay store with memory, components, and scratch/dent laptops. Please click here to visit our Ebay Store.
