appears to be a useless meta tag. Nobody is an expert on all computer parts and there is no reason to search for questions using that tag that I can think of.

Should we remove this tag?

    I'm an expert at disassembling computer parts. Does that count? – Twisty Impersonator Apr 26 '17 at 10:46

    @Twisty lol. There is always one troublemaker :) – DavidPostill Apr 26 '17 at 10:51
  • What if the question is "what do you do with old computer parts"? – Mehrdad Apr 27 '17 at 7:58

    @Mehrdad Such a question would be off-topic as "opinion based" :) – DavidPostill Apr 27 '17 at 7:59
  • Er, not "what do you do with" in that sense. I meant like if the goal was to find out if you should recycle them somehow or just throw them in the trash or find a disposal facility of some sort or whatever. You get my point... – Mehrdad Apr 27 '17 at 8:05
  • @Mehrdad That's still opinion based, because it is based on local laws. In some places, for example NL, you have to take them to a special recycling point. – DavidPostill Apr 27 '17 at 8:07

    @DavidPostill: Sigh, that's not my point. You get my point. Can you stop dodging it? I'm trying to make a helpful comment and point something out and and move on, I don't have time for jokes or trolling. – Mehrdad Apr 27 '17 at 8:19

    @Mehrdad No I don't get your point. Please can add an answer explaining why you think we should keep this tag. So far you haven't convinced me of anything. – DavidPostill Apr 27 '17 at 8:21

    The point is not every question about computer parts is about 1 specific computer part. End of story. – Mehrdad Apr 27 '17 at 8:22
  • @Mehrdad so?... That doesn't make the tag any more useful. – djsmiley2k May 8 '17 at 14:19
  • No more computer-parts tags. – User552853 May 23 '17 at 12:04

Considering that Super User has a seperate tag for nearly all computer parts, (, , , , , just to name some), I think this tag can safely be removed.

    As of today that's 66 questions to edit, and likely to grow until it gets cleaned up. A tag wiki edit to say Don't use this with references to the available parts tags would help. Seems like something to be added to a cleanup weekend, the next time we do one. – Gypsy Spellweaver Apr 26 '17 at 6:35
