Second Life Mac partners with schools to purchase their pre-owned Apple devices, which allows them to use the proceeds to invest in the latest digital learning tools. However, we take it one step further with our consultative approach. We help you with timing of your refresh as well as understanding the depreciation of those devices 1-5 years after purchase.
Trading in—not using up—student devices
To provide devices to as many students as possible, the Auburn School Department found itself using devices until they stopped working. We helped them break that cycle and maximize their tech budget.
A painless buyback process for this busy district
This Downers Grove school district had been burned by buyback companies before, but our transparent, efficient process made them loyal Second Life Mac customers.
Trust and quick turnarounds make the difference
This small school district was looking for a company that could accommodate their tight timeline while keeping them up-to-date on their buyback. Second Life Mac delivered that and more.
