I don't plan to brand and compete with HP. I was thinking doing some small sales which doesn't take too much time and effort. Prebuilt referb i think might be okay.


I will put it like this then..... You can't build a computer cheaper than you can buy one. There is little to no mark up on low end to mid range computer. And you get with one of these warehousing companies you will find that very quickly that you can buy whole systems for 200 to 250 and resell for under 400, and they cover the warranty you aren't worring about stupid users who use their cd rom drives as cup holders. You can mark it 10% less than Cdw and still make 30% profit.
