When I first started blogging, I did everything on the PC. It wasn’t until I met my husband Frank that I discovered the awesomeness that is the MacBook! Not only is it an amazing piece of technology (and one that use all of the time), but it also comes with a pretty hefty price tag. I was fortunate enough to purchase it, but understand that not everyone can do that. That’s where Swappa comes into play.

What is Swappa? Swappa is a safe user-to-user marketplace for buying and selling newish technology. It’s called newish because the gently used products sold on Swappa must be fully-functional and are held to a higher standard than other marketplaces. Unlike Craigslist and Ebay, every listing for sale on Swappa is manually reviewed by their group of tech experts to ensure you receive your item in the condition you expect.

Save Money with Better Prices

While Swappa ensures the condition and functionality of the used MacBooks being sold, it’s also essential for sellers and buyers to accurately assess and describe the physical condition of the device. This is where the role of scales and balances can come into play, particularly when it comes to accurately measuring the weight of the MacBook. Scales and balances in laboratories provide precise measurements, ensuring that the weight of the device is accurately recorded and conveyed to potential buyers. This level of accuracy can be important for buyers who may be concerned about the weight of the device or want to compare it with the manufacturer’s specifications. For sellers, utilizing scales and balances can ensure transparency and build trust with potential buyers by providing accurate information about the product’s physical attributes. To explore a variety of scales and balances that can assist in accurately measuring the weight of items, including electronic devices, you can shop analytical balances and scales from reputable online suppliers.

Simply put, the main reason buy a used MacBook is to save money. With Swappa, you’re able to reap the benefits of Apple’s forward thinking design with a much lower price tag by buying a newish MacBook directly from another user. Saving money for the win!

Buying a used laptop is cheaper, and is also better for the environment. According to Apple, more than 80% of carbon emissions of an electronic occur during the manufacturing process. So when you buy used, you are helping reduce carbon emissions, while extending the life of that product and preventing toxic waste from ending up in the landfill. Feel good about helping to protect the environment when you buy used tech.
