What is the CNB Computers Refurbished Program?
The CNB Computers Refurbished Program provides affordable hardware solutions for eligible TechSoup Canada members. In addition to refurbished desktops, laptops, and tablets, the CNB catalogue offering also includes brand new monitors.
What products are offered?
CNB's refurbished products include iPads from Apple and desktop and laptop computers from Dell and HP. Additionally, CNB provides brand new monitors from Acer. Eligible TechSoup Canada members can order as many CNB products as they need (although orders cannot include more than 5 of any individual product -- this helps us maintain inventory for all of our members. If you need to order more than 5 of something at the same time, please contact our customer service team.)
CNB is a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher
This means that CNB's refurbished Microsoft products are held to the highest possible standards. Plus, all CNB products are covered by an extensive warranty. By buying refurbished, not only are you saving money and helping to eliminate e-waste from the environment, you're getting a great product.
What is the Lenovo Affinity Program?
The Lenovo Affinity Program is a collection of discounts, of up to 25%, that are available to nonprofits and libraries for desktops, laptops, monitors, tablets, and accessories. Through the Lenovo Affinity Program you can have one year of access to Lenovo’s discounted hardware catalogue. To continue access to the Lenovo Affinity Program after the initial year, you can request TechSoup Canada’s renewal product annually.
What products are offered?
The Lenovo Affinity Program is a curated website of offers. After you request the offer, you will gain access the Lenovo website directly to view their collection of laptops, desktops, tablets, servers, monitors, and more.
The Lenovo special catalogue can only be viewed by members after TechSoup Canada has approved their donation request. TechSoup Canada does not have knowledge of the exact prices or items in the catalogue. We can only confirm that savings are up to 25% and vary by product. The discounts offered through the Lenovo Affinity Program may change based on availability.
Did you know that friends and family of your organization can also order through the Lenovo Affinity Program?
Eligible organizations and libraries can order products through this offer. Employees of your organizations and their friends and family can also purchase their own Lenovo products through this program.
You can purchase as many discounted products from Lenovo as you need. Lenovo occasionally offers seasonal promotions, such as Black Friday Sale, Cyber Monday, and Winter Clearance/Boxing Day sale.
What is the CDI Computers Discount Programs?
The CDI Computers discount program offers refurbished hardware solutions for charities, nonprofits, and libraries in Canada. CDI offers products by Cisco and Dell, which are favourites for members in need of industry standard servers, networking, and security products.
What products are being offered?
CDI currently offers discounted refurbished IT hardware solutions for three types of products:
Eligible organizations may request as many CDI products as they need. However, each request may include no more than 10 of any individual product. For larger requests, please make arrangements with us directly so that we can review our inventory and make sure there are enough products for everyone.
CDI’s refurbished products have better quality assurance and are better for the environment
The refurbished equipment provided by CDI Computers is built to the high standards used by the industry and designed for office applications. These refurbished systems usually last three to five years and experience fewer problems and failures than their consumer-oriented counterparts.
CDI also provides free recycling. When your CDI equipment reaches the end of its life, you can send it back to CDI for free and responsible recycling with the CDI’s Asset Recovery Services.
