The Free Geek Store

What We Carry

The Free Geek Store maintains a constant stock of laptop and desktop computer systems running Linux Mint or Mac OS X. The store also carries a rotating stock of peripherals and parts including monitors, keyboards, power adapters, hard drives, and much more.

Learn more about our computer, parts, and accessories supply and pricing.

Because we are a secondhand store, our inventory varies depending on recent donations. As such, we can’t guarantee that we’ll have any particular item in stock. The best way to find out what we carry is to make regular visits to our store. Our knowledgeable staff are happy to answer your questions and we do our best to accommodate special requests.  We want to help you find the technology you need!

You can also buy from Free Geek online.

Returns

The Free Geek Store’s return policy applies to items not sold "as-is." These items cannot be exchanged or returned for any reason and will be labeled as such on the sales receipt.

Return Policy

To return an item, you must present your receipt at the time of return. The item must be in the same condition as when it was sold and have the original stickers attached. We do not offer cash refunds for any reason.

All returns are for store credit only. In-store credit never expires. We cannot provide duplicate copies of store credits.

Systems returned for reasons other than hardware faults are subject to a 20% restocking fee.

14-Day Exchange

Most store items are returnable for a period of 14 calendar days from the date of purchase for in-store credit.

30-Day Warranty on LCD Monitors

LCD monitors may be returned for a period of 30 calendar days from the date of purchase for in-store credit.

Warranty

Computer systems purchased from The Free Geek Store are subject to our system warranty.

How long is the warranty period?

All computer systems are subject to a 6-month warranty from the date of purchase. This includes:

  • Technical support: Provides help and technical support on preinstalled Linux Mint software.
  • Hardware warranty: Includes service on hardware and covered accessories for 6 months after the purchase date.

Please note

Unless performed by Free Geek Tech Support, changes to the system’s hardware will void this warranty.

We are only able to address issues that can be demonstrated under our supported operating systems. If you choose to install another operating system, issues that are only present under the newly-installed OS are not covered under this warranty.

What does the warranty cover?

Our warranty covers only hardware failures. During the warranty period, we’ll gladly repair or replace any failed hardware components as necessary to keep your system fully functioning.

If your system suffers a complete failure, as determined by Tech Support, you will be issued a store credit for the full purchase price of your system. A new system purchased with this credit will be covered by a renewed warranty effective the date of the replacement purchase.

Computers, Parts & Accessories

Computers

We offer a variety of computer systems, including desktop PCs, laptops and Macintosh systems. Linux systems come installed with the latest long-term support release of Linux Mint.

Provided you keep the operating system installed at the time of purchase, you can receive tech support for 6 months after the date of purchase.

Basic Desktop PC Setup: We always have a range of desktop systems, starting with our $100 computer package that includes keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Desktop PCs are also sold separately from peripherals, so you can pick the keyboard, monitor and mouse that fit your needs and budget.
