This paper focuses on the pricing of reused personal computers that are discarded and sold on the secondary market. We first extract the main components affecting the performance of a reused computer. We then use quality function deployment to compare the weights of the main components against what reusable computer customers require. Third, we use TOPSIS to rank the selected reused computers. Finally, we price every reused computer according to relative monopoly power and perform an accumulated depreciation analysis on each one at various sale periods. The results show that each reused computer can be easily evaluated and priced on the secondary market.
