A business in Malir, Saudabad (Karachi) is selling working Computers by weight. The ad guarantees Pentium IV microprocessor PCs available in 10 or 15 kilogram versions.



The first line of the ad reads:

save thousands of rupees. Buy computers by weight

Main text in red reads:

Pentium IV Computers (available) at Rupees 399 [approx. US$6] per kilogram only

Does it show abundance of PC hardware in Pakistan? or is the country fast becoming a dumping ground for old PCs from rest of the world.

    For smart one, this is marketing. Rest of them continue to dig an answer for Where, Who and Why.

    Remember, monitor is included in the deal, a CRT itself is 12 lbs a piece, you do that math. In my view, Very smart way to do business.
