Do I dare?

Illustration for article titled Do I dare?

HP 24-xa0057c available for $199 at a local pawn shop that needs the OS reinstalled. I’ve purchased multiple broken computers from them and have made quite a bit of money by reselling them after simple repairs (replace failed HD, reinstall OS, etc.) Provided there’s nothing wrong with the hardware this should be an easy flip. Refurb units are selling for between $403 and $699.


The last two systems I sold went to (now former) co-workers, so I’d have to flip this on CL or similar. That kind of weirds me out a bit since we’re talking about several hundred dollars. Has anyone here had experience selling semi-expensive items this way?
