At half the price, used laptops are attractive to many buyers and selling well, according to second-hand laptop dealers.

“More people buy second-hand ones rather than new laptops. The main point is the price difference. Used ones cost almost half as much as new ones. So, people are more interested in buying used ones than new laptops,” a dealer said.

Most of these second-hand laptops are sold back by training institutions, companies, home and office users, and their price varies depending on the model.

Laptops and accessories are sold in Myanmar kyats, but their value is fixed in dollars, so the actual price in kyats has to be recalculated based on the prevailing exchange rate in the external market at the time of sale, said some computer shops.

“Now, people are buying more used laptops than new ones. Some used ones are as good as new ones. The price difference is one reason to prefer them. But, some only use new laptops. Second-hand laptop users seem to be increasing in the market,” a dealer in Yangon said.
