E-waste has become a pretty serious problem. Each year, we discard up to 50 million metric tons of old computers, phones, printers, and assorted electronics. While this only amounts to 2 percent of the total trash in our landfills, it does account for a shockingly high 70 percent of our total toxic waste. Put simply, it’s an issue that we can no longer afford to ignore, which is partly why refurbished electronics have become so popular.

If you’re looking to upgrade to a better computer, consider purchasing one of these factory recertified Microsoft Surface laptops. They function just like those that are fresh from the factory, but you can keep them out of the landfill while scoring a great deal at the same time. In fact, you can save as much as 55 percent — up to $1,390 — with these offers. Each unit has been inspected and certified to work like new, plus they come with a warranty.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is portable like a tablet but offers the power of a full fledged desktop computer. It comes equipped with a powerful 6th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, a nine-hour battery, and an impressive 12.3 inch PixelSense Display. Plus it runs on Windows 10 Pro, so it’ll take on even the most processor intensive apps right out of the gate. Get it now for just $912.99, a savings of 46 percent off the original sticker price.

If you’re looking for more of a laptop type of experience, then choose this recertified 13.5 inch Surface Book. It offers all the power you could need with a Core i7 processor, while maintaining a lightweight form factor that busy people will appreciate. Brand new, these go for about $2,500. By taking advantage of this offer, however, you’ll pick a pre-owned one up for just $1,109.

The Surface Laptop 2 may not be as fast as the two above, but, with a Core i5 processor, it still has enough power to let you get some serious work done. It also features a gorgeous display, 256 GB of SSD storage, and a lengthy 15-hour battery that’ll make sure it lasts the entire work day. Save 52 percent off retail and get this pre-owned model now just just $1,199.99.
