Where are the good OEM parts outlets at online?  

I was looking at the laptop case parts on Ebay, and they are steep.

The newer the unit the higher the price will be as scrap parts would be rare.

I see. 

Are there some main shop outlets where it's all centralized and bottle necked.....or no?  If I'm working on cars I have choices of junkyards and different kinds of junkyards some will come get a car that is broken down or just unwanted, and they'll pay on the spot for it.  In Japan I know there are better outlets for the used supplies.  I've seen them on youtube.  I would think something exists here already besides ebay.

you have computer junkyards too, they are called ebay, amazon.   I use them all the time to find oem parts.  these are my goto sites before i hit authorized vendor sites.  and usually can get parts for pennies on the dollar.

 

if I can find an actual part number then I use google and start looking for the best price I can find.
