Ask for about 7 million quid.

200quid tops.

Judging by the price of new computers and a quick scan through Trade-It, I would say £275 and accept £230.

It's worth exactly what anyone is prepared to pay you for it. Most people selling something always think it is worth more than in reality.

Have a look through local newspaper classified advertisements or similar computer related weekly products; this will give you an idea of what popele are asking for similar systems.

I agree with GANDALF <|:-)> but you also mention 98se, if that is the full CD and not a restore disk then it's worth a bit more, say £295 and be prepared to drop to £250

This will give you a fair return for your money and a good buy for someone. j.

If it is any help, I bought a PII 650 with 256 RAM, 32mb graphics, Win98 full CD, onboard sound, dvd-rom, 56k modem, NIC, giga-byte mobo for £110 during the summer.

Your extras like the 17in monitor, cd-rw (what speed?) soundblaster card, speakers (what speakers?) and printer might be worth another hundred or so.

By the way, what size is the hard disk?

  Binary Ghost (the only Paul) 15:32 15 Nov 2003

i have the full CD of win98se. the speed of the cd rw is something like 20-24-20 cant exactly emember, but if got the box somewhere. the hard drive is 20gig, and the speakers are cambridge soundworks.

Well, for £250 I think someone will get themselves a bargain; it is perfect for office work / internet browsing / dvd watching / even some gaming.

But it all depends on finding someone to buy the machine.
