What make and model?

What operating system?

I presume it is a Dell Latitude but one never can tell :-)

I hope we're not now going to get a string of "how much is my xxxx worth?" threads.

This one is somewhat better spec than the other one.

As much as someone wants to pay.

Try for the hundred mark.... or something and accept anything close to it.

Dell latitude - your problem is that people can pick up a new Dell laptop for about £300 these days so will not want to be concerned with a second hand purchase.

Put the thing in the local paper and ask for £300 ONO. It being a dell dont expect more than 150 though as the market is flooded with the flaming things.

Personally I sold a system of about the same specs (just a bit lower) for 340 last year as I had no idea what it was worth so bunged it in the paper at 400 and a week later it was gone! I was shocked. My system is to put it in way above and say open to offers and then drop the price a bit each week till it goes.

Extras such as tuner cards and cheapo stuff like cleaning cloths and USB light dongles also are good bargaining tools and make the machine stand out a bit more.

Given that both desktop and laptop prices have fallen dramatically over the last couple of years this reflects also on the second hand market. Why buy second hand when you can get new at a very reasonable cost and all the warranties etc.

The demand for high spec machines is still in the realms of the enthusiast (and industry) and they will buy new.

Put it on ebay and see what you can get and have done with it.
