Used Computer Sales Up

Network Hardware Resale Finds Customers Like Savings, Service

On May 12, NHR reported results from a survey of 400 North American clients, most of them large companies with more than 1,000 employees and $100 million in revenue, according to NHR. The poll found that their top five reasons for buying used equipment are savings, responsiveness, product availability, rapid delivery, and warranties.
