Laptop refurb experiment


Recommended Posts

 

Edit: Figured I'd update the OP since I've already gotten the ball rolling here. 

 

 

 

 

Experiment:

Buy laptops in bulk on ebay and try to turn them around for a profit. 

 

I decided I would only go with 8th gen or newer CPUs for two reasons:

  • Double the threads of all previous gens
  • Support for Windows 11

 

Step one: Buy laptops

Right now I have purchased 6 laptops from two different sellers for a total of about $850. I expect to pay about $50 in parts for two of them that need the palm-rest section of casing replaced. All 8th gen i5 8GB RAM 256GB SSD 1080p laptops that come with everything, batteries and chargers included. 

 

Step two: Refurbishment

  • The two that need the palm-rests sections replaced will be kind of a pain because that's the section the motherboard, battery, hingers, and basically everything else is attached to but it shouldn't take too long. Maybe an hour for each one at the most.
  • I expect these all have windows 10 keys tied to them already so there shouldn't be any cost for the OS. I will probably install windows 11 on them or some of them because it's a newer OS and looks good for a listing.
  • Possibly add more ram to some of them.

 

Step Three: Profit!

My goal will be to make at least $300, or $50 per unit on average, for a total of $1200 back on a $900 investment. If I can make $300 for a couple hours of laptop repair and a trip to the post office plus time spent browsing ebay all from home, I will consider that a success. 

 

 

Other thoughts:

I think by limiting this to 8th gen and above, it puts this experiment in a good position in the sense that any 8 thread laptop with an nvme drive and a 1080p screen is going to be current enough to avoid seeming out of date to any potential buyers. I don't think it will be hard to make at least some profit to avoid only breaking even, but we'll see how much and if this is something that can be a profitable side project. 

 

What's interesting is a lot of these laptops are listed with no OS even though they come with hard drives. You would think the sellers would bother to run a USB windows installer before selling them but for whatever reason, a lot of them just don't. So for most of these, the refurbishment will basically be installing the OS, cleaning them, and reselling them.

Seems like a good deal to me bud. Nice catch! You should be able to shift those at a profit.

If I didn't already have 3 laptops hanging around my house I don't use, I'd say count me in.  That's honestly a REALLY good price on those.  You should have no problems moving them.  I just paid that much for a 1st gen i5 laptop (mostly because I had to piece it together).

Sooooo I made offers below the buy it now price on a few listings and 2 of them were accepted, so right now I'm looking at a total of 6 laptops, all 8th gen i5 4 core 8 thread CPUs, all comes with everything except OS and only two of them need repair to the cases. All and all with what I expect to pay for the case parts I need, I'm in it for about $900. I think if I can make $1200 back, I'll consider it a success. 

 

We'll see what happens. This will be an interesting experiment for sure. I think they all come with a single 8GB ram chip so perhaps I'll buy some extra ram for a few of them and sell a couple with 16GBs just to see what happens. 

 

Edit: 6 laptops. IDK why I said 9 before, just a moment of dyslexia I guess. I bought 4 from one guy and 2 from another guy so like $150 per unit.

No, needed a tougher laptop for my son's schooling last year.  It was an HP ProBook, and buying an older one was the cheapest option I could find.  I paid that much because I also put a SSD in there though, the SSD was as much as the base laptop cost lol.  Mine came with the laptop, no RAM, no HDD, no battery.  Laptop itself was $50, but you add in RAM, SSD, battery, and charger, and it adds up quickly.

 

I mean overall, it wasn't too bad.  Its a fantastic performing laptop still today for what my son needed it for. 🙂

Good luck on it. Hope you have a successful experiment.

 

Its weird, I guess aside from my work laptop (Macbook Pro that I hate), I never use a laptop personally. I always think, wait a sec, I got a way better desktop in the other room.

Yea sure that's probably how most of us gamers would feel, but laptops are easier to resell, cheaper shipping.

I'm sure they will have no problems flipping them all for a small profit. Enthusiasts like us don't really see the appeal of a laptop because we value performance over portability. General consumers don't want to be tied to a desk and don't really care about specs as long as it's reasonably responsive which these 8th gens with SSDs are perfectly snappy for general web browsing. 

 

I hate my work laptop too... Mines a heavy 17" touchscreen Dell. Unfortunately most of my work involves going out on site so a desktop isn't really an option.

Oh I just meant at home for personal use, I'm one of those weirdos who never uses a laptop. I didn't mean anything more than that.

 

Agree, should be able to get a nice profit flipping those. Interested to hear how it turns out.

Same. I don't even own a laptop (other than the ones I intend to sell), even though as someone who is vastly familiar with them I could easily source myself a really good deal on one.

I suggest visiting Dells site and downloading all the drivers onto a usb so it's easier to install them if needed. When I put a clean Win 10 on my old Dell,I just ran all the Vista/7 drivers in Compat mode when installing and got a couple things working that windows was buggy with.Afterwards Windows installed updated drivers once they parts were recognized. About the only thing I never got working with the upgrade from Vista was my HDMI output. 🙂

I will keep that in mind, but I suspect it won't be much of an issue with win11 compatible devices. That said, I've definitely seen it on the HP printer side. Absolutely garbage software from HP lately.

Quick update, I got all 6 laptops and they all work, all have windows 11 installed now. One of them seems like it had the screen replaced with a screen that doesn't support touch even though it should be a touch screen, and one of the chargers may be going bad. I will contact the seller and see if he will give me a partial refund foe those two things since they were not mentioned in the listing. Other than that though, so far so good. Next step will be to test the battery life on them but so far it seems the batteries are in good shape. 

 

So far it's feeling like its on track to work out.

That's good.  Kind of rare on ebay I've noticed lol.  Bummer about the missing touch on the one, but really its not THAT big a deal.  Sell that one a tad bit cheaper than the touch capable ones.

So I've listed one of the laptops on ebay and I've definitely hit a wall here and my listing isn't getting hardly any attention at all. I think what's going on is although the price is definitely good, there are soooooooooo many listing for used/refurbished laptops that it just gets lost in the sea of listing. Im getting closer and closer to just listing them at cost. 

 

If anyone here is interested,  $160 + $20 shipping. 

 

The good news for me though is that the listing I bought these from accepts returns, so worst case scenario I just have to pay return shipping.

Honestly, I'd try local listing them.  Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, Offerup, things like that.  For starters, you won't have to pay shipping (just make sure you meet somewhere safe).  Secondly, you can generally ask a small premium locally.  Those laptops "should" sell for like $200-250 locally I'd imagine, they're quite good laptops.

Selling my own used stuff is hard for some reason too.

I usually have the best luck selling locally or on r/hardwareswap on reddit. 

 

I've actually done this experiment before with great success. I mixed it up and was open to trade offers. Often times I received items in trade that were higher value than the laptops I was selling. Granted this means you end up with different products to sell unless you get things you would have otherwise purchased.
