Computers continue to get faster and more compact. You’ll see more memory, more ports, and more connectivity in smaller spaces with ultra-fast and brand-new laptops. Today, the team at I.T. Supply Solutions discusses why USB 2.0 ports are all you need for refurbished laptops.

Many Devices Don’t Need to Be That Fast
USB 3.0 connections promise 10 times the download or upload speeds compared to USB 2.0. Most devices you connect to your refurbished laptop don’t need to be that fast. Do you really need to save data to a hard drive in three seconds instead of 30? Does a wireless connection really need that much more speed? Remember, these refurbished laptops are for work instead of streaming (unless you’re a livestreaming company). You may not need to download or upload huge amounts of data at once. In reality, you’ll need robust wireless connectivity for cloud-based applications instead of USB connections.
USB 3.0 devices work just as well with USB 2.0 ports, except they transfer data at slower speeds. Therefore, you can still order top-of-the-line USB 3.0 devices while utilizing USB 2.0 ports on refurbished laptops without sacrificing quality. This means USB 2.0 works with a ton of devices!
Upgrade to USB 3.0
The main difference between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 is the circuitry involved. Older-style USB 2.0 uses four wires, while USB 3.0 uses eight wires. Double the wires means more room is taken up inside the machine for computers that come with USB 3.0 ports already in them.
USB ports allow you to plug in external devices that essentially upgrade and customize refurbished laptops to meet your specific needs. One kind of device adds circuitry externally so you can run USB 3.0 devices at their optimum speeds. Concerned about refurbished laptops with older USB ports now?
