Microsoft has been around since 1975 and is considered one of the leading brands in information technology. Its founding members, Paul Allen and Bill Gates have become some of the best-known people in the world, which is a sign of how strong the brand identity is. The company are particularly well known for computer software, consumer electronics, and personal computers and services. In terms of brand products, Microsoft Office is probably their most popular software package, but Internet Explorer and 'Edge' cannot be far behind. In addition to software, Microsoft also have a range of tablet devices. The 'Surface' range has become incredibly popular, and combines tablets with laptops to provide a versatile device.
Despite the success of the Surface range, many consumers choose to purchase from other manufacturers, such as Apple or Samsung, when they are shopping for a tablet. There may well be consumers of Microsoft tablets out there who wish to trade in their device for a newer model, perhaps from a different manufacturer. Alternatively, they may simply wish to sell their Microsoft tablet to raise some spare cash. If you are considering selling your Microsoft tablet, contact OnRecycle and we can give you some options.
OnRecycle are experts at linking sellers of Microsoft tablets with potential buyers. We've spent years building relationships with some of the world's biggest online recyclers, in order to produce an up-to-date system for sellers to take advantage of. We understand what it's like to have an unwanted Microsoft tablet, but not have the time to find a suitable buyer. Through the OnRecycle price-comparison system, we have made it very easy for customers to find a buyer (or simply receive a list of quotations) immediately. Unlike other price comparison systems, you do not need to enter any personal details during our quotation process. This ensure that you will not receive a plethora of emails and phone calls, chasing you to sell.
When you wish to sell your Microsoft tablet, log on to the OnRecycle website and type the name of your device into the search bar at the top of the page (e.g. the Microsoft Surface). When you have done so, a list of related products will appear, complete with corresponding images. Click on the one that best resembles your Microsoft tablet and you will be taken to the next page.
At this stage, we will ask you to complete some more specific details about your Microsoft tablet - in terms of its condition. This will help us to provide you with a more accurate quotation. Rest assured that even if your Microsoft tablet is broken, there may well still be a number of recyclers who are willing to pay a fantastic price to take it off your hands.
Once you have done this, the list of potential recyclers will update to present a table of data, which gives you information about the recyclers and the prices they are willing to pay. When making a decision on who to choose, we advise you to consider a couple of factors. Whilst it can be tempting so simply choose the one that offers you the highest price, we suggest you approach with caution!
The reputation of the recycler should be considered. Have you ever heard of them? Have you looked at their website - to see what sort of company you might be doing business with? OnRecycle helps you to learn about the recyclers' reputation by providing a star rating system against each one. This rating is calculated by the number of complaints each recycler has received, per 100 orders. The higher the number of stars, the more positive your experience is likely to be. It is also worth taking the time to read some of the reviews left by previous users - click on the 'view reviews' link to do this.
We also suggest you look at the price being offered, and the way in which the recycler will pay you. The speed at which they will make payment is also important - especially if you need cash urgently. Use the data that appears on the table to make the best decision based on your requirements.
Once you have chosen a recycler, click on the 'sell now' button and follow the remaining steps to complete your sale. If you are offered the option, we suggest that you sell through OnRecycle, so that you can benefit from our guidance throughout the sales process. Furthermore, you will be providing your details through a secure payment system.
Once you have completed the sale of your Microsoft tablet, you are ready to start looking at new options. If you are simply upgrading from the Microsoft Surface to the Microsoft Surface 2, the following review of the latter, may be of use.
Microsoft Surface 2
The Surface 2 was launched in 2013, the same year when devices such as the iPad Air were released onto the tablet market. The Surface 2 has dimensions of 274.6 x 172.5 x 8.9mm. Where the Surface 2 stands out from other competitors is in its '2-stage kickstand' which allows users to operate it in different positions. Watching video clips, for example, on the Surface 2 is easy to do with the stand.
The Surface 2 has a 10.6-inch display, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. It comes powered with Microsoft Windows RT as its operating system. The Windows name, of course, is one which has been developed and trusted for years! The device can be purchased either as a 32 or 64GB model, and this can be expanded by 64GB via the micro SD card slot.
The device has a 5 megapixel camera with a secondary lens of 3.5 megapixels. It is available to buy in dark titanium.
