Advice on selling laptop on ebay

  Chillie 12:19 01 May 2010

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 5160. The factory default Win XP Home is on a hidden partition.

Could someone please advise whether I should reinstall XP (factory default) using say 'new user' as the owner.

Also, does anyone have an idea about the selling price?

Any advice would be appreciated!!

Selling price is around £150-£170.

I would do the new uers install throw anvti-irus on it and updates.

selling on ebay bit!!

fill out the boxes and stuff for it. tell them what the condition of it is and what is in the machine E.G.
Size of HDD
Screen info if you can get it and tell them that it is a fresh install of XP.

~That is it i think.
