You can find a great affordable laptop in Akihabara if you pay attention to these points!


If you get a chance to come to Akihabara we recommend you visit a second-hand computer shop. There are many ways you can use your computer during your trips like checking emails, SNS or sightseeing photos. While you are in Japan why don’t you buy an affordable PC? Here, there are many stores that sell second-hand computers. Today we will introduce you the most affordable one! 


Is it really OK to buy a used product?

Some people may think that second-hand products are sold in poorly maintained stores covered in dust. They are mostly scratched from previous use, look a bit dirty and will probably break soon after purchase. 

Of course, there are shops like this. However, their PCs are cheaper than the new ones. If you know what you should pay attention to, you can save a lot of money and get a great product, too. 


What are the advantages of buying second-hand technology items?

First, as you may know, they are more affordable. Popular products are not only expensive they get sold very fast. In cases like this, you can always look for a used one. Just be careful to buy the product that comes with a warranty attached.  

Second, you can take it home as soon as you buy it and use it right away. Users sell their items when they don’t need them anymore. Then, the store checks the items and cleans them thoroughly before offering it to its customers. Many of the products look as good as new. 

Sometimes, because of a shortage of certain accessories the product’s price suddenly drops. The lack of accessories is not necessarily a bad thing, though. For example, if you don’t need manuals will have no problem buying a PC without one, or if you have an excess of batteries, remote controls or AC adapters, it is even better to buy a PC without them. That way, you can save a few bucks, too. 


A variety of iPhones, Androids and much more!


There are many stores that sell other technology aside from computers. Softmap sells many affordable cameras. If you find a PC and you have some money left you can buy a camera or some of other technology they sell. If you pay attention to the prices, you can find some great deals!


There are many trending models, too!

Even in second-hand shops, most of the items are currently popular models. If you don’t need accessories, you will find many good PCs to choose from!
