Accessible, high quality and affordable EdTech for Illinois schools. 
Quality Refurbished Computers for Education.

BlueRange Technology carries a wide range of new and certified refurbished computers for schools. They carry Chromebooks, laptops, desktops, servers, tablets & more from the brands you trust - Dell, Lenovo, HP, Acer and others - to get you the technology your classrooms deserve.



Let's face it, recertified technology can carry a stigma. Some school districts who would otherwise greatly benefit from the savings of recertified machines will overlook this option because they are set on buying brand new technology. However, they may find along the way that doing so leaves them with products that don't provide as much return in terms of warranty, and performance.

For virtually  the same cost as Blue Range Technology's lower-priced, new technology offerings such as Chromebooks, you can get the following from recertified notebooks:
  • Longer warranty - buying recertified gives you a three-year warranty, compared to one-year warranty for Chromebooks.
  • Commercial grade equipment - our recertified machines were built for extended, and sometimes rugged use. Our customers who opt for cheaper, new machines tend to come back to us with broken bezels and cracked screens that need fixing. Plus, the units can't ever be upgraded.
  • A "True" OS - Chromebooks operate with the Chrome operating system, which is a slightly more dressed up version of the Chrome browser. For some this may be ok, but for many we have found out that is not the case. Even educators may require more app and software options than Chrome can offer.
