What is the goal of Faircomputer?

The declared goal of Faircomputer is to offer sustainable IT services at fair prices. In doing so, we rely on open source software whenever possible.


We recommend extending the useful life of a computer or cell phone as much as possible. The longer it is used, the better it is for the environment. In concrete terms, this means only switching to a more energy-efficient device when:

· The device is technically defective and cannot be repaired.
· The computer or cell phone no longer meets the functional requirements.

When purchasing a new notebook you should be guided by the following criteria:

· Options for upgrading
· Modular design
· Availability of spare parts
· Long-term support of the software

This ensures that ecological aspects are taken into account at the time of purchase and that the product can be used longer.
