Found the invoice for the first colour printer we had around 1996 - HP Deskjet (can't remember the number now) but it was more than £300 to buy!!

At least you took the wise decision, and didn't spend another fortune in trying to upgrade it.

Been ther, done it, and now a poorer person :o(

Don't tell the wife how much I've spent on computer s / bits over the last 10 years. I could have changed the car twice for that amount of money.

My only worry when i die is if my wife sells my computer and bits for what i said i paid for them.

Sell your wife, keep the computer.

the user is into music editing in a small way and the pc is of sufficient calibre for his needs and being of the no money type his father has bought it for his birthday
at least it will get a few more years of use by someone who will eventually go on to better things rather than be broken up and discarded

One vital question. Did you provide an extended warranty!.

The reason that I ask that question, was due to a similar sale, and the buyer wanted constant advice and after-care attention :o(
