View Full Version : Buy second hand computer hardware?

02-01-2002, 03:45 PM
Does anyone know of a good NZ site to buy second hand gear from. I use Trademe a bit but it is a pain waiting for auctions to finish etc. And some of the stuff goes at stupid prices. eg 13g harddrive 4 years old $160.00 + freight and no warranty, you can buy a brand new 20g with warranty for $225.00.
Anyway any help would be appreciated.

The nz.wanted newsgroup is quite good. Also, it might be worth checking whether your local university has any old workstations that are up for replacement. Let me know if you find any other options, because I am about to buy a second hand machine myself.

Hi B C,

Have you tried looking in the Trade and Exchange papers or its site, they have computer stuff quite a lot. Their web site is www.te.co.nz if you don't already know
