Is the Used Computer Market Going Away?

Is the Used Computer Market Going Away?: "If your organization has considered acquiring a refurbished PC, but is tempted by the falling prices of newer IT equipment, you may wonder just why you might consider buying refurbished over a shiny new model. You’re not alone: others have also questioned — sometimes loudly — how long the used computer market can last given the diminishing prices of new equipment.

Yet to paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of the refurbished computer’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. Nor are they anything new: Oakland Technology Exchange West’s Bruce Buckelew, who has been refurbishing computers and supplying them to low-income students for a decade, recalls doomsday forecasts about the computer refurbishment field way back when he first started."
