Battery Life & Condition

During the assessment stage of our system we use a measure we call the 80% rule. This rule is our boundary for battery replacement. Our technicians look at the full charge capacity of the laptop vs the design capacity as well as cycle count. If this falls below what we regard as less than 80% of the original battery life we fit the system with brand new battery.

How long will my battery last?

We anticipate that the minimum battery life of your system will be above 5h of general usage.

Please note this is not guaranteed as all users use their laptops in different ways. This figure is an average taken using a wide range of systems from different years.


Condition Grades



Systems classified as grade A we regard as being as good as new. These systems show only the minor signs of use on the external casing. All screens are checked and free of any inconsistencies or imperfections.



Our B grade condition systems will include minor visible cosmetic wear. This could include cosmetic imperfections such as scratches, scuffs or dents to the body. None of the issues interfere with the functionality of the system.



Anything we consider as grade C has clearly visible cosmetic wear. This includes deeper scratches and/or dents in the casing. Screens may also include imperfections such as dead pixels or blemishes and if applicable this is clearly stated.

If you’re budget conscious a C grade system can be the ideal solution for those looking to save and still have all the benefits and functionality of the Mac.


All systems provided come in 100% full working order and with our industry leading warranty. The conditions we describe below are only in relation to the cosmetic appearance of our machines. We never supply systems with technical faults unless clearly stated in the condition description. When pricing a system the condition grade is an attributing factor and a reduction of price will be seen on lower grades.

What is an SSD and why do we supply them with every system?

Access Time (amount of time required to find your data).An SSD is 190% faster.
ReliabilityAn SSD is 120% more reliable.
Energy Savings An SSD has 100% lower power consumption. (Longer battery life).
Backup TimeSSDs on average are 110% faster to backup.



We no longer supply Hard Disk Drives (HDD) storage and only install Solid State Drives (SSD).
The reason for this is that is that Apple has introduced a new file saving system called APFS, with the latest macOS High Sierra, which is:
Designed specifically for Solid State Drives.
– Optimizes data storage for increased speed.
SSDs can access all data storage locations simultaneously. An HDD cannot do this.
An HDD just like a vinyl player uses its needle to play your song an HDD uses a needle to read your data. An SSD doesn’t need a needle as it has access to everything instantly. APFS scatters your data across your drive for efficiency with SSDs, however, this has the adverse effect with HDDs and dramatically reduces performance and progressively worsens over time.
Because of this, we stopped supplying any products that have macOS High Sierra with HDD storage a long time ago. All of these products have the old HDD removed and an SSD installed to replace it. Benefits of this are:
– Improved reliability with no physical wear from moving parts.
– Improved performance at 4x faster with no reduction in disk speed over time.
– Increased longevity of your Mac with the use of upgraded current technology.
