Literally meaning “pulled from an already assembled system”.


system pull (uncountable)

Usage notes[edit]

In casual use by end users, refers to "used" parts, particularly parts replaced when upgrading, notably memory or hard drives. In computer sales, refers instead 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.
