Computer valuation for private sale

How much should I ask for the following?

Time AMD K6 500MHz with 64Mb RAM, 12Gb h/d, DVD drive, modem, keyboard, mouse, powered speakers (basic), joystick, 17" CRT monitor, Win 98 SE, Lotus SmartSuite and much else installed, with all manuals/user guides, software, licences, users video. All very clean and in as new condition.

I would ask about £200-£250.

Low spec processor but still workable,
low memory for todays power hungry applications/games,
hard drive OK, not massive but winxp would be happy. monitor is now a basic size, windows 98se has had support from Microsoft withdrawn.
DVD drive is a bonus though.

all in, not a bad low spec starter setup.

if you could bung in another 64meg ram then it would become a viable windows xp machine, just a thought.

good luck selling.

I would concur with paperman27. £200 - £250.

Micro Mart is out today (£1.60). You can get a realistic idea of second hand prices from the many advertised in that.
