E-Learning the Eco-Friendy Way

Remanufactured laptops are produced through an accredited remanufacturing process that restores and transforms used or obsolete parts into good-as-new laptops with a standard 3-year warranty. Besides providing e-learning access to disadvantaged students, remanufactured laptops also contribute to a 75% reduction in carbon footprint. Additionally, the laptops will be disposed of through green IT life-cycle management. Thus, the remanufactured laptops will benefit both the selected underprivileged communities and the environment.
