How to Reuse Your Laptop to Make Money

I came across this interesting video courtesy Recycling Supermarket. This video by Hank Green at is doing several rounds on the Internet. It has some innovative ideas how you can safely disassemble your laptop, reuse some parts, and yet sell some to ebay for money.

I am really not sure if I could pull it off, but if someone could they would not only protect environment from fumes emitted from battery, but also earn some money and yet help a non-privileged to have a low-cost laptop courtesy their laptop manufacturer.

Here is the video:
