CDI Certified equipment originates from end of lease corporate customers which means they are already the highest quality corporate-grade models from office environments. Once they arrive at CDI facilities, they are tested, repaired, and loaded with a genuine Operating System. The certification process is conducted in our 120,000 sq. ft. warehouse by certified technicians and is widely known in the industry as the best alternative to brand new.
