Computer equipment loses value at roughly 2% per week. What does this mean to you? What you purchase today is worth 2% less this week, 2% less of that total next week, etc. For example If you paid $2000 for a computer today, next year it will be worth $600 and the year after that $200. Three years from the date of purchase, it is worth about $60. This “scratch pad type calculation” is close, but not exact. Is there any benefit in owning equipment like this?
