There is no other industry that can match the pace of change and evolution of the computer industry. Advances in manufacturing processes and the use of cheap and abundant labor in other countries results in new products being introduced at alarming speeds. Advanced research and development programs have created revolutionary new production materials that produce smaller and smaller electronic components.

It is very much in the manufacturer’s interest to keep these new developments coming. Every time a new upgrade or product is released, marketing departments seek to convince consumers that the new product is so completely superior to the old one that they have no choice but to purchase the new model or be wiped out by the competition. In most cases, of course, this is not true, but the result is the same. Products only a few years or months old are replaced by newer editions that claim to be the answer to all your company’s problems.

As companies replace their now “obsolete” computer parts with the latest revision, the old parts must be disposed of. Most of these obsolete computer parts are still in perfect condition and highly functional. Many of the disposable parts are acquired by obsolete electronics distributors who then resell the components to other companies for use in their equipment. Most companies are happy to buy obsolete parts because they are significantly cheaper and fully capable of performing the required functions.

Browsing Obsolete Computer Parts Online

Most obsolete electronics distributors operate primarily online. They maintain massive databases of in-stock computer parts. Consumers can browse the database for semiconductors, CPUs, hard drives, switches, relays, and any other obsolete computer part, which they can use as replacement components or in a build-it-yourself computer system. The prices for these obsolete computer parts are considerably less than for new replacement components.
