    Follow the Dell model.....find people who are looking to buy and charge em $50 to put the parts together. This way you don't lay down any cash as they pay for all of the parts.

    I have tried doing this and the labor on putting them together is a good way to go for a college kid. If your knowledge level is high enough toss an add in your local news paper for repair and home networking. Cheap and effective. Home networking has made me some nice pocket change
