Pic unrelated. This is probably a bad idea but hear my pitch:
I am able to get a really sweet deal on some new-ish laptops. Older models but still workable (better than what I use for work purposes). I can pull a shitton of these things every fall for a ridiculously low price--about 20% of the retail value for used similar items--for a max of about 7500 per year if I buy out my supplier completely.
I live in the vicinity of one of the top 10 public universities in the US. I know average public college kids are stupid, so I'm thinking of selling these things to them as quick replacements on Craigslist or something for when they break their shit. If I sell even a few dollars less than the lowest online retailer's price I can make almost 13k on an entire shipment, not including incidental expenses like transportation. I know a guy who did this when I was in college (different area entirely) and made bank off his old IT employer. I bought a laptop off him my freshman year and still use it (three years out of uni right now)
I know /biz/ is populated by college kids so I need to know what my target demographic thinks of this idea. Grill me hard.
