hello what i was thinking of is buying componets that are on sales and build a full computer and then sell it, but i dont know really if that would work very good as either way the cost of buying the hardware and selling the full pc wont be much of a difference in think. Just let me know what u think about this.

also your main market (computer illiterate people) are not going to want to go through you, as they will probably just want to go drop a few hundred at best buy and be done with it.

anyone who knows their *** wont really be a high profit margin client.

1: remember that your going to have to find someone who wants the system and who has a need and pricerange for that system.

2: if you have to sit on your stock for more than a few months your 'sale' price will be the new retail and you will be lucky to break even.

3: if you have to ask you probably dont know enough

4: i would be suspect of anyone who gives you much help in this area, as anyone who is really good at it got that way by doing it and wont want competition

basically sit down a spreadsheet grind some numbers. It wouldnt be a bad idea to do some 'fake' sales to see exactly what you can actually get for what

But Dell is established. And can negotiate contracts based on volume.

The big boys, or even the established little boys don't buy components on sale. They buy in volume.
