    I've been buying broken laptops and fixing them up to sell. I could pretty much pawn them for at least 75/ea. They all work now. I'm running LXLE on one and Windows 8 on the rest.

    Any ideas for macroing strategies or something of the like? I have good wi-fi. Maybe RuneScape macroing? I'm trying to think of what I could do with this "processing power".

    I have a clickbank account, any ideas on how to automate processes for spamming meh links?

    PS:

    Flipping laptops is pretty easy. Buy them for 3 to 40 dollars. Sell them for whatever profit you like.

    Do you have to pay for electricity? If not, use them as rdp and install some bots to farm points.

    Go to a rubbish tip with some money, most of the people there work for nothing. People who are quite well off dump anything. You can buy decent standard tv's here for £7, laptops and towers for anything up to £20. It's amazing if you know the right person

    What tip do you go to then? In the UK workers at the dump work for the council which is paid by council tax so they don't work for nothing, taking items once left on a dump is theft in the UK

    I would honestly play league with my friends, and talk trash like "gg newbs, easy game" -when both teams only have their nexus left and it was barely a win.

    Ahh yes, it is for the council, but there are some dodgy people who will slyly sell things and put things aside for the right amount of money.

    I know local scrap yards buy desktops and laptops for .15 cents a pound. You can go there and try to pick some up for cheap

    just bung them a tenner, they will let you take it, i worked for recycling company,, all weeee electricals likes computers, fly mows, tvs etc ,will be crushed and there metals extracted. most of there money comes gold, platinum and from smart t.vs ,apparently they are all compatible, so if your sony is slow booting up , some LG ram fix it,

    True what you say, most stuff from the dump still works perfect, it s because today we are a chuck away society. and nothing has value.

    I'm pretty sure I'm too late for these laptops to do any good towards BTC but some of the Twitter stuff sounds good. I appreciate all the feedback!

    Well, I offer three dollars. I've bought them for a dollar and more so even gotten them for free. For example, I have a Compaq laptop that looks pretty decent. CQ56. I paid twenty bucks for it, just had to order a charger. Craigslist, man. WANTED. ADS. I went to yard sales today and picked up three laptops for twenty bucks!

    Nice. I'm getting laptops on Craigslist by posting WANTED ads in NW MS and MEM TN. It's working thus far. Yard sales are good. If anyone's in the Memphis area and needs a computer looked at holla'. I'm fixing these puppies up and flipping them. I'll check out my local junk yard, I've found an Xbox 360 for parts there before, so it could happen.

    First thing to do OP - sell four of the five laptops. Until you know how to make money with one - you would be seriously wasting your time and effort to try to make it with five.

    It's one of those things that just happens. Each worker gets thoroughly checked every night. All it takes is become friendly with one of the Scrap Metal Men, a few words "I'll save what you need, you save some items for me".. Bung £10 here and there for items, nobody knows. These items are going to be scrapped anyway.

    The council crushes them, they know it happens - it's the unwritten rule of the job

    This is right, in the UK, forget about local/Council tips for good deals, and go to the scrap men/scrap yard/private skip hire yards, they are all privately run and are more than happy to do deals on items on a weekly/fortnightly basis, whatever you want.

    Personally I used to do the laptop thing the OP is talking about, me and a buddy did the washing machine thing, and over the years there have been one or two other "things" that have come up from getting in with the people in the waste industry.

    Back on topic though...

    Op, if I where you (and it is actually what I did/still do if needed) I would continue flipping your laptops and use profits to rent VPS units for any botting or similar endeavours.

    with the VPS you dont have to worry about it dying on you so much (go with reputable company and chances are low to none), you get much faster and more stable (unshaped) bandwidth connections, which makes for faster smoother botting, and your VPS will come with its own unique IP to start you off with.

    More than 2 or 3 PCs at home for your IM endavours is soooo 2008 dude ;)

    lol ;)
