For everything from school art supplies to calculators, binders, school backpacks, lunch boxes and more, we’ve got what your students need to succeed.

Take a seat

Whether you’re working from home or outfitting a space for gaming, your comfort is dependent on finding the best chair. At Staples, we provide a broad range of office chairs and seating, so you can find the right fit for you. Select from multifunctional task chairs, computer & desk chairs, drafting stools and more. If you will be using your new chair for multiple hours a day, make sure to get an ergonomic office chair to prevent unnecessary strain.

Comfort, all day long

Office furniture that is the proper size and height makes a big difference. When shopping for chairs, the height of the seat should be adjustable so that the user’s feet can sit flat on the floor with their knees at right angles. Likewise, the accompanying office desk should be at a height where the users’ elbows can sit comfortably at right angles at their sides while typing or writing. Browse our selection to find the combination that’s right for you. If size if a concern, check out our big & tall chairs which can support up to 500lbs.

Game on

If you’re a gamer, you know that a single gaming session can last all day or night. For the best and most comfortable gaming setup, Staples has gaming chairs in colors and styles for everyone. Make sure to match your new chair to an ergonomic gaming desk, the perfect complement for the high-tech gaming computer and accessories you’ve invested in.

Show seasonal allergies who’s boss

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, now is when they are at their worst. Stock up on allergy season’s most important products to keep your home, classroom, and office allergen-free. Start with an air purifier to strip the air of allergens like pollen and pet dander and replace existing air filters for improved air quality. Frequently dust, wipe down hard surfaces, and vacuum carpets and furniture to help eliminate pollen tracked in from outside and dander left behind by pets. When leaving the house, check the pollen count and bring a face mask to help filter the air you breath outside.

No matter what you do, it’s unlikely that the symptoms of seasonal allergies can be avoided entirely. Make sure to have over-the-counter cold and allergy medications on hand to battle symptoms, and stock up on facial tissues so you’ll always have one available when you need them.

Spring (Cleaning) is in the air

Spring cleaning and decluttering is a tradition meant to refresh our spaces for the year ahead. Staples has everything you need to clear out the clutter, store and organize your belongings, and all the right cleaning supplies.

Clear out the clutter

Start by preparing a checklist and make sure you have all the necessary supplies. Use storage bins and a label maker to make sorting and organizing easier. Prepare extra boxes for donations and trash bags for the things you no longer need. Look for decorative boxes & baskets that will compliment your home’s décor and use them to organize. You can also use closet organizers and storage drawers anywhere they are needed.

Start with the basics

An all-purpose cleaner, cleaning brush and microfiber cloths will clean most surfaces. Use a duster to remove unwanted dirt and furniture polish to revitalize wood surfaces. Upgrade your broom, dustpan, wet mop, and vacuum to make cleaning any type of flooring a breeze.

The nitty gritty

Spring cleaning doesn’t stop there. There’s so much you can do to reset your home:

  • Improve air quality and eliminate pollen and pet dander with a new air purifier and an air freshener with a scent you love.
  • On a sunny day, take the opportunity to clean your windows – you’ll need glass cleaner, a bucket, a squeegee, and paper towels.
  • Have a step stool or ladder on hand to access hard-to-reach places like the tops of cabinets and overhead lighting.
  • Replace broken light bulbs and check the batteries in your smoke detectors.
  • Use drain cleaner to clear up sink and bathtub drains.

Up your printing game with a Supertank Printer

Looking for a printer with more print capacity that’s better for the environment and your wallet? Shop Staples selection of Supertank Printers for all the benefits of an inkjet printer with the convenience and savings of replacement ink bottles that last longer and cost less per page than standard inkjet printer cartridges.

Find a Supertank printer from your favorite top printer brand including:

  • HP Smart Tank & Neverstop Printers
  • Brother INKVestment Tank Printers
  • Canon MegaTank Printers
  • Epson EcoTank Printers

And don’t forget to browse Staples Ink and Toner Finder to find the right replacement ink for your new printer. No matter what printer you have, enter the brand, cartridge or printer model into the easy-to-use Ink and Toner Finder, and browse for compatible ink.

Rest assured it arrives safely & securely

Whether you are sending business documents or customer products, shipping and mailroom supplies from Staples make the process seamless.

Keep packing supplies ready for easy shipping. Padded envelopes and bubble mailers are perfect for shipping small, non-fragile items. Pack larger items in shipping boxes that are slightly larger than the item, and use packing peanuts, bubble roll, or other packing materials to keep objects from moving in the box during transport. Choose the right packing tape to ensure your packages will stay sealed. Staples carries clear acrylic packing tape for everyday shipping and reinforced or water activated tape for packages that require a heavier duty seal.

Manage the day-to-day office correspondence smoothly with a wide selection of business envelopes, inter-office envelopes, and catalog envelopes in the mailroom. Have finger pads and envelope moisteners on hand for speedy document collation and a quick seal. Choose security envelopes for confidential office correspondence and inter-office communications.

What Computer Parts do you need to build a PC, you ask? Does this mean you want to build your own PC? That is absolutely splendid! 🙂

Building your own Computer from individual PC Components has so many benefits compared to just going out and buying a pre-built PC:

Also: It’s a lot of fun!

The anticipation of the individual parts being delivered to your house, the shiny boxes with all the different components in them, not to mention researching what parts you actually need, which you are doing right now!

Crucial Steps involved in building your own PC

By building your own Computer you gain a lot of insight into the inner workings of Hardware Components and how everything fits together.

You will be able to troubleshoot if any problems arise later on much easier, than when you have no clue what is actually going on inside your PC’s Case.

Knowing the ins and outs of assembling a Computer and what Parts a Computer needs will also let you upgrade your Computer in the future.

Another very important factor is optimization. Knowing how a Computer works, enables you to optimize it as much as possible for your type of work.

You can optimize by buying the best parts for your specific workloads, be it Gaming, 3D Rendering, Modeling, Graphic Design, Video Editing, and more!

Building your own computer is a lot cheaper too, compared to buying a pre-built PC. You can usually save around 30% in Cost when researching, buying the PC Components individually, and assembling them yourself.

And the best of it all, building a Computer is so easy, it’s kind of interesting that not more people are doing it!

Anyway, we now certainly know we’re on the right track by looking into building our very own custom Computer, that’s probably why you came here in the first place!

If you already have a grasp on which general type of Computer you need, what specific Parts do you need to build a PC?

Let’s see:

Computer Parts List (PC Components)

Here is the Computer Parts List with all the basic Hardware Parts that you will need for a functioning PC:

  • Case
  • Motherboard
  • CPU [Processor]
  • GPU [Graphics Card] (if no integrated GPU)
  • RAM [Memory]
  • Storage Device (SSD, NVME SSD, HDD)
  • Cooling (CPU, Chassis)
  • PSU [Power Supply Unit]
  • Display device, Monitor
  • Operating System [OS]
  • Input Devices, Mouse, Keyboard

Let’s take a closer look at them:

Case

The Computer case is nothing more than a fancy-looking box that holds all of the PC’s components. It can be opened and closed and has pre-defined areas with screws and holes where all of the components are supposed to be placed and attached to.

PC Cases come in different colors, and sizes, with or without fans; some have RGB lights, some don’t, some have glass side panels, and some look mind-bogglingly crazy.

A look inside one of the PCs I recently built

In other words: A PC Case is a black (or colored) Box with some buttons on top. Every other part that you need to build a PC will be mounted inside the PC’s case.

Here’s a fun fact: You don’t actually need a case.

You could also just lay all of your components on the floor or mount them on the wall; some people do, but being able to just pick up the entire computer by picking up the case comes in handy.

Some Cases that are extremely popular and often recommended are the NZXT H500 – ATX Mid-Tower or the Phanteks Enthoo Pro.

Motherboard

Next up is a very important part, the Motherboard.

The Motherboard is a Printed Circuit Board that every other computer hardware component will be attached to in one way or another. It functions like a central hub that manages and connects all of your other parts.

The Motherboard has connectors for cables like power cables and data cables, slots for cards like GPUs & sockets for CPUs.

There are also lots of little building blocks like transistors, capacitors, jumpers, and lots of other tiny parts that all go towards making your different hardware components work well together.

Check out the best Motherboards for the popular AMD Ryzen CPUs here and Intel CPUs here.

Processor (CPU)

Into the Motherboard’s Socket, the CPU is plugged in. Every CPU type has a specific Socket, that has a name such as LGA1700, AM4, AM5, or TR4, to name a few popular ones, and the Motherboard will need the exact same socket to be compatible with the CPU.

More often than not, this is the first step in picking new parts for your own pc build: Pick a CPU, check what socket it has, and then pick a compatible Motherboard.

Continue on from there and the other components often easily fall into place.

Image-Source: AMD / Intel

CPU means Central Processing Unit and it processes any task that you might throw at it. Without it, the computer won’t work.

Almost everything you do on a computer will have to be calculated by the CPU in some way, so having a fast CPU (high frequency and high core count) will make your PC faster.

Head on over to the Custom PC-Builder Tool, to find the right CPU and computer parts for the type of computer that you are looking to build.

Also, be sure to drop by our Forum full of PC Enthusiasts and Experts if you should have any questions!

CPU Cooler

Anything that draws power also generates heat, and the CPU generates lots of heat.

This means it has to be cooled to be able to operate flawlessly. What do we need for cooling a CPU?

A CPU-Cooler! 🙂

Some CPUs like many of AMD’s Ryzen Series already have CPU-Coolers included in the CPU Box, but many others, like the popular high-end Intel i9 CPUs, do not.

Make sure you have a CPU-Cooler that is compatible with your CPU and Socket. It’s the same as with the Motherboard and CPU Socket. The Cooler has to fit the CPU and Socket.

Example: Are you planning to buy an AM5 CPU such as the AMD Ryzen 7700X? You’ll need an AM5 Socket Motherboard and an AM5 compatible CPU-Cooler too. Easy as that!

Here’s a tip: Be sure to go through our PC Part compatibility guide if you’re still unsure of how to check if all your PC Parts are compatible.

There are two popular CPU-Cooler types. One is the Air-Cooled Tower Cooler, and the other is an AIO (All-In-One) Closed Waterloop CPU Cooler.

AIO Closed Waterloop Coolers tend to do a better job at cooling overclocked CPUs and CPUs that run hot for longer periods.

AIOs, though, can be noisier (usually have more fans and the added pump noise) and need more room in your PC-Case, as they are attached to the side of the case, connected to the CPU with some Water Pipes. You can check out our AIO VS Air Cooler Guide to find out more.

The air-cooled tower CPU cooler is great at cooling burst workloads (like active work in professional software), is nice and quiet, and usually takes up less room in the case. It is placed on top of the CPU, where it sits and does its cooling work.

Because different CPUs have different sizes and are mounted onto various socket types, be sure your CPU Cooler is compatible with the type of CPU you’ll get.

Many CPU Coolers come with different mounting brackets to increase compatibility

Graphics Card (GPU)

Next up is the Graphics Card. Its purpose is the processing of anything that has to do with visuals and outputs these visuals (Images, User Interface, GUI, Video) onto the Monitor(s).

There are two main types of GPUs, the integrated GPU (iGPU) and the discrete GPU.

The integrated GPU is integrated into the CPU. This means some CPUs already have a graphics chip built-in and you will not need an additional Graphics Card to drive your Monitor.

Although dedicated/discreet GPUs and iGPUs are meant for similar tasks their performance and size differ greatly

When your CPU has an integrated Graphics chip (such as the Intel i9 13900K CPU) you can connect your monitor to the display adapter on the Motherboard. The thing with integrated GPUs, though, is: Their performance is very limited.

They are good enough for light tasks such as word processing and some light gaming. Still, as soon as you want to dive into graphics-heavy tasks such as 3D GPU Rendering, Higher-End Gaming, Video Editing, Graphic Design, you will want a discrete GPU.

Image-Source: Nvidia

A discrete GPU is a GPU that is not part of the CPU. It comes on its very own printed circuit board (like the one in the picture above), which is then plugged into a PCI Express Slot on your Motherboard.

Some modern GPUs include Nvidia’s RTX generation, such as the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070, or the higher-end RTX 4090.

The competitor AMD also has a solid line-up with the AMD Radeon RX 6800 or 6800XT.

The two Manufacturers, Nvidia and AMD are fighting a fierce battle to achieve a lead over the other. At the moment, it appears as though NVIDIA is the Brand to pick over AMD if you are looking for the maximum performance you can get out of a GPU.

Memory (RAM)

Random Access Memory (RAM) is the short-term” memory part of the computer if you would compare it to a brain.

The RAM stores data that is actively being worked on by the CPU. RAM can read and write data extremely fast (much faster than any permanent storage solutions) but can’t retain information once the power is turned off.

Image-Source: G.Skill

RAM kits consist of RAM Modules such as the 4 colorful Modules you can see in the image above.

You can get just one Module, 2 Modules, 4 Modules, or even 8 Modules and more as long as your Motherboard has sufficient RAM Slots.

A Motherboard has RAM slots where RAM gets plugged in to. RAM comes in different capacities starting at around 4GB and going up to 64GB per Module on modern systems. Having more Modules, of course, will multiply your RAM capacity.

Find out what RAM performs best for your future PC build, and take a look at our guide to see how much you’ll need.

Storage (HDD / SSD / NVME SSD)

Because RAM can’t store anything without power and we do want to be able to turn off our computer from time to time, we need a storage medium that retains its stored data, even without electricity.

There are 3 typical mass-storage types:

  1. The HDD (Hard Disc Drive)
  2. the SSD (Solid State Drive)
  3. and the NVMe SSD (Non-Volatile Memory Express Solid State Drive)

All three do pretty much the same, they store data for you. The main difference between the three is speed.

An HDD (which still has mechanically moving parts) is the slowest of the three and will usually read and save Data at about 100 MByte/s.

An SSD will already read and write at around 500 MByte/s, and an NVMe SSD currently reads and writes sequential Data with up to 10000 MBytes/s.

So, yes, if you can swing it, get an NVMe SSD such as the Seagate FireCuda 530!

Both HDDs and SSDs are plugged into a SATA connector on your motherboard via a SATA Cable. They also need Power that they get through a SATA Power Cable from the PSU (Power Supply Unit, I’ll talk about that later!)

The NVMe SSD, though, is plugged into the motherboard directly. It is about as small as a stick of chewing gum and needs no extra cables.

Your Motherboard, of course, has to support NVMe SSDs and have an M. 2 slot available. But almost all modern Motherboards nowadays have at least one of these. Highly recommended!

More Cooling

We talked about CPU Cooling a bit already. The CPU is not the only PC Component that needs cooling in a Computer.

The GPU, too, needs cooling, but every discrete GPU that you can buy already comes with an attached heatsink and cooler on top of it, so we don’t have to worry about extra cooling for the GPU.

Now, because the PC case is usually closed shut, and the PC components inside the case need cool(ish) air to not overheat, there should be a way to blow colder air from outside of the PC’s case into the Case.

This is done by attaching Case Fans to the inside of the case. These then pull in cool air at the front of your PC and blow the hot air out the back of your PC, creating so-called airflow throughout the case.

This way, the inside of the PC-Case and all of your PC Components ideally stay nice and cool and performance isn’t reduced through things such as thermal throttling.

So do you need to get extra Case Fans?

Usually not, as most cases are shipped with extra fans that will do just fine for this purpose.

If you are thinking about building an extraordinarily quiet/silent PC, though, you might want to get higher-quality case fans than what is shipped by default with a standard case.

Power Supply Unit (PSU)

We went through many of the most important PC Components already, but your PC won’t work without a power supply to supply the PC with power.

There are so many PSU brands, PSU tiers, and efficiencies with different wattages out there that it can be quite difficult to decide which one to buy.

The important thing is to know how much wattage your current PC Build will need to run stable and possibly how much you will need in the future if you are planning on adding more components, like extra or stronger GPUs or Storage Drives.

Image-Credit: Corsair

We recommend buying a stronger power supply that will later also be able to handle any upgrades.

If you are unsure of how much wattage your current or future PC Build actually needs head on over to the Wattage Calculator here that tells you exactly how much you need.

Some great Power Supplies that I can recommend without hesitation are the CORSAIR RMX Series RM650x and the Seasonic FOCUS Plus 650 Gold PSUs. beQuiet is another high-quality PSU Brand, but there might be others you prefer.

That’s about it for our Computer’s Case.

We’ve now listed and discussed every component that goes into the PC’s Case. We can close our case now and see what else we need to finish our PC Build.

Monitor

Any PC that you want to interact with needs a display device such as a monitor, to be able to see what’s going on. Monitors come in all kinds of sizes, colors, resolutions, aspect ratios, and so on.

A popular modern Display usually is a 24” or 27″ Full HD / 4K Monitor from Brands such as Asus, Dell, LG, BenQ, Samsung, and many others.

If you are looking for a Gaming monitor, you might not need IPS-type Panels but rather a TN Panel Display with better color display and contrast.

From just those few sentences above, you can probably already tell that picking Monitors is a science in itself, so do make sure to read our in-depth Monitor Guide to figure out exactly what you need.

Image-Source: Asus

If you are into visually-demanding workloads such as Graphic Design and professional Color grading or Video Editing, you should invest more money into a good Monitor.

The Monitor is attached to either the discrete GPU or the Motherboard’s display connector, depending on what type of GPU you have.

Operating System

Windows 10 is the currently leading Operating System that will let you use your PC. Many online stores offer Volume License Keys that don’t cost you more than 15$ per license.

Image-Source: Microsoft

Windows 11 is out too, but it’s still riddled with bugs and doesn’t yet support all software, so not everyone is taking the leap and upgrading.

Of course, you will need to install the OS onto your Computer, and there are several ways to do this. You can use a Win OS Install DVD if you have one and your PC has a DVD Drive.

Nowadays, though, as optical drives are becoming a thing of the past, the Operating System is usually either downloaded directly from the Internet (for you to create your own boot medium on DVD or thumb drive), or you can buy it on a USB Stick (Thumb-Drive) that you can install Win10/11 from.

Input Devices

Don’t forget a good Mouse and (mechanical) Keyboard! 🙂 There are lots of other Input devices, such as Graphic Tablets or Pens, that you can also use, of course.

Gaming PC Parts List

Gaming PCs consist of the same parts as PCs that are not necessarily meant for gaming – so this article and the list above applies to buying parts for gaming PCs as well.

The main difference is in how you allocate your budget to the individual parts. When you decide on what parts are needed to build a gaming PC, you usually allocate a much larger part of your budget to the GPU (Graphics Card), as many Games are quite demanding regarding graphics.

Besides buying a strong GPU for gaming, many gamers also like to invest in the look and aesthetics of their PC. RGB Fans and LED strips come to mind, which will give your PC a unique look.

PC Build Checklist

Here’s an easy checklist that you can go through to make sure you’ve thought of everything when building your own PC:

  1. Find out what kind of Computer you need (Here’s how to find out)
  2. Figure out what parts you need to build a PC in general (This article!)
  3. Pick your Parts and make sure they are compatible (Part recommendations here, Check RAM, CPU, GPU compatibility here)
  4. Buy them and have them delivered
  5. Assemble your PC (Here’s how) & be sure to ground yourself
  6. Do some troubleshooting in case you’re having issues (MSI, Asus, Asus Fan Error, Bios, Clear CMOS)
  7. Install your Operating System, Drivers, and Software
  8. Done! Easy as that! 🙂

Where to rent an old computer or laptop for money?

Few people know that some parts of obsolete office equipment belong to the first three hazard classes. And this means that it cannot be thrown away just like that, for this they can be held financially, administratively, and sometimes even criminally liable. The reason is that potential or immediate damage has been caused to the environment and citizens. To avoid this, you need to ask yourself where to take the old computer.

Content of article

Why not just throw it away?

Because old computers and laptops emit toxic substances polluting the environment

Leaving aside the issue of waste, it should be noted that computers and laptops belong to several classes of hazardous waste at once. This is especially true for older devices that include mercury lamps. Because of them, computers are included in the 1st class of danger.

In addition, the PC contains:

  1. Rechargeable batteries, boards containing tin, cadmium, lead – everything that is included in the 2nd hazard class;
  2. Wires, transformers – hazard class 3.

The remaining parts, the same metal parts, classify the computer and laptop as hazard class 5, they can be scrapped. But instead of disassembling the device, you can try to sell it as a whole. This expands the list of places where you can rent an old computer for money.

If you ignore the danger, throw the equipment into a trash can or landfill, this can lead to an administrative fine of up to 2 tr. for individuals, and 250 tr. for legal entities. If such actions have led to significant material damage, including a serious deterioration in health, the death of the victim, the perpetrator may be deprived of liberty.

Where can I sell my old computer for money?

If the old computer equipment cannot be sold, then it can be handed over for money.

For the owner of an old laptop or computer, the
possible:

  1. Hand over equipment to special collection points that dispose of computers and laptops;
  2. Sell it for scrap;
  3. Participate in the campaign to exchange an old PC for a new one;
  4. Offer the device to computer repair specialists.

All of these methods allow you to turn in an old laptop for money. First
two cases they will be small. For one computer or laptop more than 200 rubles.
will not offer. But this is a fast and reliable way to safely get rid of
technology.

Return an old laptop in exchange for a new one

Many retail chains have a so-called Trade-in – when they give a discount for returning old equipment.

Participation in the promotion is the most profitable option, which allows you to exchange an old laptop in exchange for a new one. Large retail chains selling household appliances regularly, especially on holidays, offer a discount on new samples in exchange for an old device. It doesn’t have to be working. Saving 10-30% is 3-10 tr. and more.

The most profitable Trade-in with the following retail chains:

  • Eldorado;
  • M-Video;
  • DNS.

Rent a laptop for spare parts

Many service centers for the repair of equipment buy non-working computer equipment for spare parts.

Handing over a laptop for spare parts to repair shops allows you to help out
a significantly larger amount than when contacting scrap metal collection points. Here
the condition of the case, boards, and other components that can
be used during the restoration of office equipment. As a result, the price may
grow instead of 100-200 r. up to 1-1.5 tr. and more.

Hand over a computer for recycling

In addition, there are 8 factories in Russia that specialize in recycling office equipment. Their goal is to extract precious metals from PCs, laptops, etc.

In contrast to the collection points directly at the factory, they will offer 5-7 times more. But it does not make sense to carry a separate device there. And you can assemble a hundred or two computers only if you have a license. This method of how to hand over a computer for recycling for money is suitable for organizations that periodically replace office equipment in production.

Pawn your laptop

Another way is to pawn your laptop. The main requirement that must be met is that the device is in working condition. Some components, such as a PC monitor, can be accepted without checking its performance. Small money will be offered. Regardless of how much you can take a laptop to a pawnshop, the price will be higher than at collection points.

Computer equipment collection points

For users of the Vyvoz.org website, we have compiled (and constantly updated) a list of organizations in large (and not only) Russian cities where you can return an old computer or laptop for money:

Moscow
St. Petersburg

Particulars of disposal of computers for legal entities

Legal entities must follow the write-off and disposal procedure to avoid tax sanctions organs.

Organizations are required to comply with the requirements for recording receipts,
movement, disposal of precious metals. If the Assay Supervision Inspectorate establishes
violations, a fine of up to 30 thousand rubles is imposed on the legal entity, and
the head of the organization will be required to pay up to 3 tr.

Improper disposal of computer equipment can cause
unscheduled tax audit. The reason is the suspicion that the organization is wrong
calculates income tax.

It was mentioned above that it is possible to export PCs and laptops in bulk to
factories that extract precious metals. But this is permissible if the organization has a license.
Otherwise, in order to avoid a fine of up to 250 tr., you need to conclude an agreement with
recycling company that has the appropriate license.

The controlling persons of the organization are personally responsible for checking that the company for the disposal of office equipment has the necessary documents.

In addition, the organization will:

  1. Create
    equipment write-off commission;
  2. Get
    expert opinion that the devices are not subject to further operation;
  3. Conduct
    write-off of equipment through accounting (according to the sub-article of KOSGU No. 226).

With a recycling company, a legal entity must draw up an agreement, draw up acts of acceptance and transfer and work performed. This write-off procedure allows you to remove property tax from old equipment. Violation of the procedure will lead to the fact that the tax authorities will not recognize it as legal, will charge additional tax and a penalty, and will impose a fine.

Especially for legal entities, we have compiled a list of organizations that are involved in drawing up an act of the technical condition of equipment for write-off:

Moscow
St. Petersburg
Astrakhan
Barnaul
Vladivostok

Conclusion

Handing over a computer for spare parts or recycling is a necessary action so as not to pollute the environment and not become the subject of an administrative offense or a criminal offense. The methods are different, from delivery to a scrap metal collection point to participation in the action of retail chains of household appliances. Legal entities need to follow the write-off and disposal procedure in order to avoid sanctions from the tax authorities.

  2. Wires, transformers – hazard class 3.

The remaining parts, the same metal parts, classify the computer and laptop as hazard class 5, they can be scrapped. But instead of disassembling the device, you can try to sell it as a whole. This expands the list of places where you can rent an old computer for money.

If you ignore the danger, throw the equipment into a trash can or landfill, this can lead to an administrative fine of up to 2 tr. for individuals, and 250 tr. for legal entities. If such actions have led to significant material damage, including a serious deterioration in health, the death of the victim, the perpetrator may be deprived of liberty.

Where to rent an old computer for money?

possible:

  1. Hand over equipment to special collection points that dispose of computers and laptops;

Return an old laptop in exchange for a new one

Many retail chains have a so-called Trade-in – when they give a discount for returning old equipment.

Participation in the promotion is the most profitable option, which allows you to exchange an old laptop in exchange for a new one. Large retail chains selling household appliances regularly, especially on holidays, offer a discount on new samples in exchange for an old device. It doesn’t have to be working. Saving 10-30% is 3-10 tr. and more.

The most profitable Trade-in with the following retail chains:

Many service centers for the repair of equipment buy non-working computer equipment for spare parts.

Handing over a laptop for spare parts to repair shops allows you to help out
a significantly larger amount than when contacting scrap metal collection points. Here
the condition of the case, boards, and other components that can
be used during the restoration of office equipment. As a result, the price may
grow instead of 100-200 r. up to 1-1.5 tr. and more.

Hand over a computer for recycling

In addition, there are 8 factories in Russia that specialize in recycling office equipment. Their goal is to extract precious metals from PCs, laptops, etc.

In contrast to the collection points directly at the factory, they will offer 5-7 times more. But it does not make sense to carry a separate device there. And you can assemble a hundred or two computers only if you have a license. This method of how to hand over a computer for recycling for money is suitable for organizations that periodically replace office equipment in production.

Pawn your laptop

Another way is to pawn your laptop. The main requirement that must be met is that the device is in working condition. Some components, such as a PC monitor, can be accepted without checking its performance. Small money will be offered. Regardless of how much you can take a laptop to a pawnshop, the price will be higher than at collection points.

Particulars of disposal of computers for legal entities

Legal entities must follow the write-off and disposal procedure to avoid tax sanctions organs.

Organizations are required to comply with the requirements for recording receipts,
movement, disposal of precious metals. If the Assay Supervision Inspectorate establishes
violations, a fine of up to 30 thousand rubles is imposed on the legal entity, and
the head of the organization will be required to pay up to 3 tr.

Improper disposal of computer equipment can cause
unscheduled tax audit. The reason is the suspicion that the organization is wrong
calculates income tax.

It was mentioned above that it is possible to export PCs and laptops in bulk to
factories that extract precious metals. But this is permissible if the organization has a license.
Otherwise, in order to avoid a fine of up to 250 tr., you need to conclude an agreement with
recycling company that has the appropriate license.

The controlling persons of the organization are personally responsible for checking that the company for the disposal of office equipment has the necessary documents.

In addition, the organization will:

  1. Create
    equipment write-off commission;
  2. Get
    expert opinion that the devices are not subject to further operation;
  3. Conduct
    write-off of equipment through accounting (according to the sub-article of KOSGU No. 226).

With a recycling company, a legal entity must draw up an agreement, draw up acts of acceptance and transfer and work performed. This write-off procedure allows you to remove property tax from old equipment. Violation of the procedure will lead to the fact that the tax authorities will not recognize it as legal, will charge additional tax and a penalty, and will impose a fine.
