Abstract—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 in future.

Index Terms—Green technology computing system, performance, reusable computer.
