Buying the latest smartphones, tablets and other gadgets is fun, but it's hard on the bank account. It's also hard on your house's storage space. You don't want to throw those gadgets away, though. Not only did they cost you money, you don't want them ending up in a landfill where they could cause significant damage to the environment.
Instead, you can make a bit of that money back with a little bit of help from the Internet. We've found a site that will tell you what your gadget is worth, from smartphones to laptops to tablets and digital cameras. Who knows. Maybe your old iPod is worth thousands.
The site is called Sage BlueBook (formerly Worth Monkey) and it works by searching data all over Internet regarding the current asking price and selling price of the used goods you're looking for. And it has information on millions of used electronics. From laptops to servers, RAM to motherboards, their database covers the computing spectrum (though gaming devices and audio gear aren't catalogued by Sage BlueBook).
Type your gadget name into the search bar at the top of the page to get started. For example, if you want to sell an old iPhone 4s, type it in and select the storage space (ex. 16 gigabytes). It will guess while you type. It then shows you a chart with both retail and wholesale prices (if you're selling to a reseller, use the wholesale price as a guide). It categorizes your device by Refurbished, Good, Fair, Not Working and Recycled Materials.
