  1. Do You think it's wrong to (ex.) first buy a really good laptop that's on "sale" (an other laptop with the same specs would cost almost the double). Then when the "sale" is over You sell the laptop for a bit more than you payed for it.

    Do You think it's right or wrong? -why?

    Standard economic practice... Just be sure what you disclose is fair... After all, you are voiding the warranty for most machines... give they buyer a chance to transfer the warranty.

    Fine, as long as the buyer gets the warranty with it.

    No, why would it be wrong?
    Because you made a profit?
    Money itself is no sin.

    "You" doesn't constitute capitalization AFAIK

    I don't either think it's wrong but some ppl do... I would ofc be royally pissed off if I
    would buy something and then see it worth much less than I payed for it...but then
    again I don't buy used stuff and if I have to buy something old / used I always check
    the products marketing value (and the seller if possible).

    Supply & Demand.

    The buyer shouldn't have missed out on the sale.

    But as, raybay and XeonUK say, the buyer shouldn't get short changed.
