Our Apple computer specialists will be happy to answer any questions you have.
Q: Where do your computers come from?
A: Approximately 99% of the laptops and desktops sold at the Orchard come from large corporations. Most corporations lease computers rather than buy them. At the end of the corporate lease term, we purchase the computers. The Orchard only purchases computers that we can refurbish to the best standards. Our Mac and PC specialists perform a thorough and complete diagnostic on each unit, replace questionable components, and clean them as thoroughly as possible. When you purchase your computer from The Orchard it will be in “like new” condition.
Q: What should I expect when I purchase a Refurbished Product From The Orchard?
A: – Substantial savings and incredible value
– A fully functional computer that meets your needs and expectations
– Complete assurance that the unit you have purchased meets quality standards, and that all defective components have been replaced
Q: Do you accept trade-ins?
A: We do accept trade-in’s. We require a 24 hour testing period prior to providing a trade-in value. We have Apple Diagnostic tests that we perform on each trade-in prior to providing a trade-in value.
Q: Does The Orchard sell and service PC’s?
A. At The Orchard, we specialize in Apple Products, but we do also sell and service PC’s. Our technicians are highly skilled and trained on both platforms and this allows us to consult with and support our customers who might use both products.
Q: Why Mac over a PC?
A: When Apple manufactures a computer system they use only the best parts and build every unit with surgical precision. Mac computers are far less prone to viruses. In comparison to PC’s where upgrades typically are complicated and cost money, OS upgrades for MAC computers are simple and free. Mac users and owners also feel that an Apple is much easier in general to use than a PC system. By using better parts and avoiding viruses Mac owners are far more likely to depend on their computer for longer periods of time than PC owners. If you are still contemplating the switch to Apple , give us a call. We are happy to arrange for an in-house demonstration of our Mac computer inventory.
Q: Does The Orchard sell Apple laptops only?
A: The Orchard proudly sells quality Apple laptops and Apple desktops. In addition to Apple laptops and desktops, we also sell Windows PC’s and Windows-based laptops.

This means that all of the parts, software, diagnostic and labor charges are covered for 30 days.
