The emerging resale market of obsolete electronics is directly related to the increasing rate of technical sophistication and new product releases. New products are continually introduced into the market that promise to do things faster and more efficiently. New materials and manufacturing procedures speeds up the introduction of new products even more, and smaller and smaller component parts are always being developed.

The problem is that most people do not even come close to using all the power and capabilities these new products offer. For a vast majority of jobs, the new, suped-up electronics are much too sophisticated and much more powerful than they need to be. Older models that are now considered obsolete have all the capabilities and power needed to get the job done.

Individuals and businesses who do not require the most advanced electronics to run complex scientific, mathematical, or engineering models are more likely to purchase obsolete electronics to meet their computing needs instead. These parts are completely satisfactory for almost any job, and they are much more affordable than the newest releases. Users also often find that new electronic equipment is more difficult to use than older versions, with little or no improvement in the quality of work produced.

This emerging electronics resale market is able to capitalize on the use of Internet technology. Good resellers maintain an extensive online database of available parts that consumers can browse at their convenience. They also purchase unused inventories from other businesses for resale online. Without the need to maintain a large sales staff, display floor, or multiple inventory locations, online resellers of obsolete electronics are able to pass these considerable savings onto consumers.
