  • New Factory Sealed Retail products are brand new sealed and in original manufacturer box is complete with Manufacturers genuine warranty.
  • New Open Box products have never been used; the only difference between the New and New Open Box is that the outside factory seal has been broken, due to canceled order, inspection or mishandling during transporting from warehouse to warehouse but still have warranty depending on product category. However, the inside contents are complete.
  • New Sealed Spare Part products are in the original manufacturer box but frequently are incomplete.  Product may exclude fans or power supplies.  Spares can be custom ordered to be made complete -- contact the sales staff to coordinate this.
  • Renew (Original Equipment Manufacturer Reconditioning from HP) products are new and many times the manufacturer will disassemble new whole units to use parts. Product is identical to New Factory Sealed Retail, including warranty coverage.
  • Bulk/Pulls/Refurb(ished) products are cleaned and tested in our own or an affiliate facility. These units will be in perfect working order, however may have minor blemishes due to normal prior product usage and will not come with documentation or software unless indicated.  However we do supply accessories when appropriate.
