There are many reasons to sell laptop computers these days. For one, the economy has put a crunch on everyone, and any excess electronics we have laying around the house are put to better use by putting a few extra dollars in our pockets. There are also reasons beyond just needing some extra spending cash like newer technology, bugs and viruses slowing down your computer, lack of what are now essential aspects of laptops (like high definition capable disc players, built-in webcams and USB and memory card slots New Technology New computers come out seemingly every day, each an improvement on an earlier model, and each even more expensive. Though there are times when there is a lull in big advancements, it is sometimes the little ones that separate you from the fellow tech junkies and their cooler computers. Graphics cards and the updates that are required of them to keep up with today's cutting edge games by themselves necessitate upgrades of the laptops themselves on a regular basis. There is a seemingly endless stream of new apps, gadgets and add-ons that computers, laptops in particular seem to have. Keeping up with that crowd can be costly and time consuming. Many people prefer to sell laptop computers so they can use some of that money towards keeping up with the newest technology. Sell Laptop Computers that Broke Of course, there is also the situations that arise when a laptop suddenly goes kaput. Be it by damage or a virus, laptops (more so than their desktop brethren) are susceptible to an early dismissal from the world of working computers. In the race to build lighter and more mobile laptops, the shell has gotten somewhat more fragile, leading to mounds of unwanted broken laptops every year that have nowhere to go. Sell Laptop Computers Instead of Throwing Them Away That is, of course, if you don't try to sell it. Some try to sell laptop computers for parts, but that rarely works out as the value they get is only based on whatever part the person buying it is willing to pay. The rest of the machine is either mangled, and now unusable, or added on as a gift at a low or non-existent price because there is no reason to have it without the part the buyer wanted. The other option is to just toss it which, while being sad because of the money and time spent on it is also incredibly wasteful and harmful to the environment. Ironically many people toss their old laptops to buy ones that are 'eco-friendly', thereby allowing their old one to sit in a landfill. How to Sell Laptop Computers There are a couple ways that you can sell laptop computers, but there is only one that really is worth the time. The first route, and the most publicized one is the auction website option. The hassle of putting things up on one of these sites is maddening enough, but then the bidding process, and under-bidding at that, is rough on electronic sellers. Even if your laptop is in tip-top shape, it's hard to get market value on an auction site, and even if you do, there is no guarantee they will actually pay up, leaving you to go through the whole process again. The second route is listing websites. Popular listing sites are fun to browse through sometimes, but unless you know exactly what you are doing can be a maze of insanity, especially if you live in a big city with a large online presence. Then there are the spammers. Spammers are automated responses sent to the sellers emails that have nothing to do with the actual post and are always a scheme to get you to visit some website (usually a low-brow establishment hunting for your credit card number) and fork over enough of your personal information that they can either plaster you with more spam or at worst take your identity. The third and most effective way is to use online companies that buy used electronics. One such website, CashforLaptops.com, provides fair value prices and easy to use interfaces that help you get what you need and get it for a guaranteed amount.
