My local PC store has a large number of what they call "scrap" laptops. After chatting up the sales clerk I found out that almost all of these are still functioning, and some are still ok even cosmetically (they take out the HDD, and RAM so they can sell them separately, but they are otherwise intact). I am a college student with a minimal budget, so I see a chance to get something decent here, or at least better than what I have. My question is if there is anything to watch for? There are i3, and i5 laptops there,since they run about $35, are these worth fixing up if I can find one that just needs the ram and HDD? I've built PCs before, and I've done numerous laptop repairs/upgrades, so I am capable of fixing one of these myself, I'd just like input on if the cost is worth the risk, because to me it seems that it is. Total (with the student discount) I can get one for around $105, assuming that I buy a decent HDD, and I find a model than can have 8gb of RAM, and the one I buy works. Thoughts? Am I thinking about this the right way?
