—Approach towards environmental friendly
development concept introduces green technology computing
system (GTCS) as a technique to reuse obsolete computer in
sustainable manner. Instead of purchasing new computers to
replace old computers, the disc on Module (DOM) can be
installed into the obsolete computer to transform them into
GTCS. In this study, the obsolete computers with GTCS were
tested to run all the software programs that were usually
utilized in the new computers. The survey questionnaires
methodology is established to support the result of the computer
data processor in terms of speed, stability and maintenance of
the new and obsolete computer to the user. The result of the
study shows that, obsolete computer shows the best
performance to the users in terms of speed, stability and
maintenance. However, new computer shows the best stability
in terms of computer graphic condition and computer accessory
condition. The finding of the study reveals that GTCS can
contribute to reduce computer waste volume due to the reuse of
obsolete computers by the users. This green solution is
environmental friendly solution for managing computer waste
