You may get a bit more but it would be pushing it, as they have come down that fast in price for new

go to pc world and look at the pcs on display and find the nearest in specifications to your one. I think you will be surprised how much they have come down. I would think Woodchip is at the high end of the price range. If it goes to a friend remember that friend will be seeing adverts for new pcs all the time and will expect you to be a full time pc specialist for anything even slightly strange on the pc.

I would have said about the same, perhaps a little lower, as woodchip. Ask you friend to make an offer for what he thinks it`s worth to him. If he offers £200 accept it gracefully and anything more than £250 you should decide how good a friend he is. Remember that you are probably not in a position to offer a warranty and should the worst happen you wouldn`t want a mate feeling he had been ripped off.

180 to 220 pounds . If you can get that take it as you are more likely to get 160.

Given that it is 3 years old, out of warranty, in need of a bit of upgrading and that a similar spec machine brand new can be got for as little as £300 - £350 (not from PC World I hasten to add) then I would imagine £150 - £180 as a reasonable price.

Prices of new machines are always dropping and specs increasing, remember the old adage 'As soon as it leaves the shelf the pc is obsolete!'. It is now true to say that a pc is obsolete before it arrives at the store.

Personally I would never buy a secondhand pc as, like cars, you can never be sure a component is going to fail and there is no warantee, can't spell guarantee, to back it up! So £150 to £180 seems to me to be a reasonable price guide.
