Default Thinking of buying/selling refurbed laptops

I am thinking of generating a bit of cash by buying in a bulk load of laptops/desktops from *somewhere* fixing whatever needs fixing and selling them on.

My question is do any of you UK guys know a good "somewhere" that I am actually going to be able to get a good enough deal to make it worth while doing, (ie 25+ profit per laptop/machine)

I have browsed through ebay and some of the deals look ok except they don't give you much info about the machines you are buying, the only supplier that did give you the info had old machines (P4, P3 P2 etc) with no harddrives, no I assume once you have spent 250 on 10 laptops then another 200 on hard drives, they a further 200 on other missing parts, this doesnt leave a lot of margin.



Can anyone help ?

Instead of pm's.. The company is called Tier 1.

Website can be found http://www.tier1online.com/

They offer a huge range of both laptops, and desktops. Get on the mailing list for even better offers . All come with a warranty, there is a lot of refurbed products, but they also offer corporate, and spanking new.

As its a open forum, I'm not going to mention my gross on these, but it's worth it.
