Demand for used PCs on upswing

Demand for used computers in some developing regions of the world is outstripping supplies, a new study has shown. One in every dozen computers used worldwide is a "secondary PC," and about 152.5 million used systems were shipped in 2004, according to a study released Wednesday by market research firm Gartner. Secondary PCs are systems used for more than three months by the primary consumer and then made available to another person.
