Over the last few years, technology has changed rapidly. As a result, we have old used technology equipment lying around our closets and drawers at our office and home. During our Spring Cleaning and End-of-Year Clean-Out Projects, we get rid of the old stuff - some we give away to family and friends, others we recycle and some we sell.
We researched and listed below our Top 10 Places to Sell Used Technology, including: Laptop, Desktop, Game Consoles, Smartphone, eBook Reader or Tablet. At the bottom of this list is a link to another article that lists the Top 10 places to just recycle the old stuff.
