Usage notes[edit]

In casual use, used by end users to refer to used parts, particularly parts replaced when upgrading, notably memory or hard drives. In computer sales, instead refers to new parts, which are being resold by a system assembler; this may be specified as “new system pull” to emphasize that it is a new part.
