Is there any money in refurbishing and reselling computers?

I'm looking to start up a side business buying broken computers, fixing them and then reselling them. Ebay seems like a great placed to buy As-Is PC's but I don't know were the best place is to resell them (Craigslist or eBay). Any advice would be really appreciated.

    I think it depends a lot on what your end product is going to be.

    Desktops aren't really something people buy a lot of these days what with tablets and laptops out there that fill 90% of people's needs. Take an old desktop, replace its hard drive, install an OS, and you still have to convince someone to buy it from you for $300 or so, that they can spend on a new cheap (or even OEM refurbished) computer or laptop.

    Fixing up broken laptops has more appeal, but is more labor intensive. Were I to do it, I would target corporate auctions and buy a pallette of one model and start there.

    To do it properly you would need a re-sellers Windows license or distribut a free OS.
