We get it you need to reduce your carbon footprint. One simple yet impactful way to do this is by purchasing pre-owned IT equipment, instead of buying new. This is especially true for high-performance servers like those offered by Dell.

CXtec, a leading provider of pre-owned Dell servers, helps businesses save money and the environment. By purchasing a pre-owned Dell server from CXtec, you can reduce your CO2 emissions by a staggering 471kg. This is equivalent to planting 21.41 trees or driving a car for 1,165.84 miles (based on the average passenger vehicle emitting 0.404 kg of CO2 per mile).

Here's how buying a pre-owned Dell server from CXtec reduces CO2 emissions:

Reduce manufacturing: Manufacturing new servers requires a significant amount of energy and resources. This includes the extraction and processing of raw materials, the manufacturing of components, and the assembly of the final product. By choosing a pre-owned server, you are avoiding the need for all of this, leading to a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions.

Extend lifespan: Pre-owned servers are typically only a few years old and have many years of productive life remaining. When you extend the life of a server, you are reducing the need to produce new ones, further lowering your carbon footprint.

Boost energy efficiency: Modern pre-owned servers are often more energy efficient than older models. This is because they have been designed with energy efficiency in mind and have been optimized for performance.

Join the Circular Economy: Electronic waste (e-waste) is a growing problem, and finding ways to reuse and recycle electronic devices is crucial. By purchasing a pre-owned server, you are giving a new lease on life to a valuable piece of equipment and preventing it from ending up in landfills.

In addition to the environmental benefits, there are also several financial advantages to buying a pre-owned Dell server from CXtec:


Save money: Pre-owned servers are significantly cheaper than new ones, often by 40% to 70%. This can save your business a substantial amount of money, especially for large server deployments.

Get reliable equipment: Our experienced technicians rigorously test and refurbish all pre-owned servers. This ensures that you are getting a reliable server that will meet your business needs.

Enjoy warranty protection: CXtec offers a comprehensive warranty on all of its pre-owned servers, typically 3x5 NBD coverage. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your server is protected.

Find the perfect fit: CXtec offers a wide variety of pre-owned Dell servers to choose from, including popular models like the PowerEdge R640, R730, and R740. This means that you can find the perfect server to meet your specific needs and budget.

Investing in a pre-owned Dell server from CXtec is a win-win situation. You can contribute to a more sustainable future and enjoy the benefits of reliable, high-performance IT equipment without breaking the bank.
