Hi,
Please I need cheap laptops, new and used/refurbished to send to Africa! Any ideas for reliable and genuine suppliers? Thanks.

This seems like a hot niche to homebrew, ie. take out an ad in one's local paper offering to buy used laptops, get them, refurb, sell on ebay.

It would be good for profit if you could buy broken units and refurb them.

Working or otherwise ... buy 'em, quick check the hardware, dump the OS in favour of the latest Ubuntu distribution (which contains open source equivalents of a few thousand dollars' worth of software, including the ultra-pimp Compiz and beryl 3D user interfaces) print a few PDF user manuals, and you're rocking.

I have a relative I set up doing something similar -- he buys used computers, rips out the innards and puts them in a flat form factor, installs a Linux OS, Myth TV and some other media apps, and lo and behold you have a media server that can kick a $x,000 Dell or Gateway media system to the curb for a a fraction of the price. He gets the computers for usually $200 or less, spends $100 or less on new parts, software is free, then sells the systems for anywhere from $750 to $2,250 depending on configuration. Not a bad deal.

PS. Here's a look at Compiz: Link hidden: Login to view

PPS. Link hidden: Login to view to see Compiz running a game of Quake across twenty-four monitors. Yum.


PPPS. Compiz=free with any purchase of Ubuntu, which is free itself.
