Top Devices You Need To Sell in 2022

Modern technology comes and goes. With each release of a new and exciting product, another one becomes obsolete and useless. This is the cycle we have all come to understand - it’s just the way it is. And when the market becomes flooded with these older devices, the value is driven even further down. 

The modern device lifecycle is incredibly short in the grand scheme of things with the “even better than the last” device being debuted in less than a year’s time after the older one. The average smartphone lasts just less than 2 years before getting a new one, tablets last 2.2 years, laptops from 3 to 5 years, and desktops 4.6 years according to WebFX. 

Now is your chance to get ahead of the game to identify which devices you have that may become obsolete - or essentially valueless - within this next year. We’ve identified major devices that you may currently be sitting on that will lose significant value in 2022, including Apple MacBooks, iPads, and Chromebooks from different manufacturers.


If you have any of these devices listed below, we highly encourage you to sell them as soon as possible in order to receive the highest dollar amount. You can reach out to us in two ways:
