Forgot to say it has a DVD/CD Drive and Floppy too!!

  Jackcoms 17:03 19 Jul 2006

OK then - £12.50.

And, no, I'm not joking

  Ikelos 17:09 19 Jul 2006

I will go to £15.............

But when it was new, only a few years ago, it was probably over £1000.

Over £1600, (I said it would make your eyes water) but I guess thats the price of progress, suppose I will sling it in the skip, shame really as it's in 'As New' condition as I hardly ever used it.

"suppose I will sling it in the skip"

Can I suggest that you wipe the HDD and offer it to your local primary school?

I would give you a tenner for it Marsh Warden © ™

aslong as it has a decent battery life?

As others have said, it's not got much of a resale value.

But there are many that could find a use for it. Scrub the HDD and find out your local donation Charity. It's OK for basic Office tasks after all, but don't try offering it to anyone between 13yo and 19yo. We'll hear the laughing here in Scotland.

Don't be mean £30 to £50 is about right.

List it on ebay and mail me the listing number if you're gonna sell it. Not guaranteeing I'll make a bid but there's a few people I know would make use of it.
