The Devaluation of my PC

Published on 3 Apr 2008

Everyone knows PC components devalue at a very fast rate. Here’s a calculation based on my latest purchase.

I ordered the components for my new PC on February 21. Total price: €945,5. Today, about 40 days later, the price of all those components together has dropped by €54.5, a decrease of 6%. Especially the RAM (15% drop) and processor (15% drop) have devalued significantly.

That’s 54 beers, gone!
