How to Become a Recipient
Phoenix ComputersSM is not able to offer computers directly to the public.  Our licensing agreement with Microsoft requires that we work through other non profit organizations or government agencies which refer their clients to us to obtain a computer.  So, if you want to obtain a computer from Phoenix you will need a referral from either of these organizations.  For a list of a few of the organizations that we partner with click here to see if you are already working with one.  If you are, then all you have to do is speak to them about getting a referral.  If they are not listed, have them give us a call and we can let them know how to make a referral. Once you have obtained your referral all you have to do is to bring it in on the days that we are open to obtain your desktop computer. If you are not working with a case manager or social worker but you are receiving SSI or SSDI benefits then just bring a copy of your award letter or a form letter from a government welfare agency stating that you are low income. Appointments are not necessary to pick up your computer.  The basic desktop computer bundle with Windows 7, includes the computer itself (which comes in many shapes and sizes), a CRT monitor, keyboard and mouse and is priced at $25. We are only able to accept cash as payment. Notebook or laptop computers are generally available although they are very popular and may not always be available.  Prices of laptops range from $55 to over $100 depending on the particular laptop. Since we refurbish many different types of computers your selection will be made from the computers that are on the shelf at the front desk.  CRT monitors will vary in size, based on what is available at the time.  We also have flat screen (LCD) monitors available for an additional fee, from $20-$50, based on the screen size and whether speakers are built into the monitor.  Stand alone speakers are available in different configurations from a pair of stereo speakers ($10) to other sets which have a subwoofer and even additional speakers. We usually have color ink jet or black and white laserjet printers.  All ink-jet printers come with full ink cartridges.  The price varies with the particular printer, but typically ranges from $15-$30.
