    Hi and welcome. Love Edinburgh, very good city to explore in.
    Don't think of it that way, think of it as 94 people thought you might have a problem or question to ask and, upon investigation, found you didn't and decided to move on.

    Howdy, AJ.

    I'm switching from the Information Technology industry to accounting. To make ends meet I buy hosed laptops off eBay, fix and sell them. My margin is anywhere from 15% to 50% per unit.

    well you can say i am now more into management. managing staff and accounts. worked as a technician/engineer for 10 years and now after 10 years of hard work i managed to get Manager / management position.

    touch wood our business is doing good with iphone ipod ipad repairs and macbooks etc.

    we are much much cheaper than apple in terms of repair prices and there is no apple store in edinburgh :)

    Anything is cheaper than Apple repairs. I worked tech support and as a service technician for nine years until I was laid off.
    In my opinion, the tech field never was a fit for me. As I take these business and accounting classes I'm actually understanding what's going on. My last test was a 90% so I think I'll go pretty well.

    If you are looking for courtesy and decency in the forums you'll be disappointed. :) Be sure to post an opinion in the political forum before you leave today. . .

    You can't post in the political forum (PRSI) until you have 100 posts. :(

    I would love to do that as a thing on the side, but I don't really have the knowledge. I suppose though the Internet is really all I need to change that. Do you learn as you go along or do you find that most of the time these laptops have the same 10 or so problems?

    Welcome katana92, don't worry about voting up or down, it's often arbitrary.
