thinking about selling my laptop to build a desktop pc.

how much would you pay for something like this?

Toshiba Satellite 2400-S201

Intel Pentium 4 Mobile CPU 1.6Ghz
512MB RAM
30GB H/D
3 USB 2.0 Ports
Integrated LAN/56k Modem
CDRW/DVD Combo Drive
Windows XP Professional

Ill also throw in the following:

How much would you pay for something like this / how much should I try to get?

I would say $500-600(being generous). wifi is now mostly standard on most laptop, you're not getting anything extra on that. I have been looking at laptop prices for a while now. Dell is having some major sales and rollback in prices. i got my laptop for $800(inspiron 8600) not too long ago and it's not some dinky celeron with shared video card either.

i have sold 2 laptops within the past year at a profit. it's not going to be easy to break even. i was lucky cuz the laptop were less than a few months old and i was able to talk them into buying it ;)

advice: try finding someone that don't know anything about computers.

Yeah I work at a computer shop so its easy to find computer illeterate customers. Bad thing is most of them want something cheap and if I sell it at work they'll probably come back to the store if they have problems. I was hoping to get around 600 just so that I would make some sort of a profit (i got the computer for dirt cheap)

Just trying to get some rough figures of what they go for.

i wasn't thinking about that when i sold this dude my 2nd laptop. i bought it for $800. he was willing to buy a laptop for $2000 :noo

I ended up selling it to him for $900. i was thinking about selling it to him for $1100 but i slipped and said $900 first hhah.

my first laptop, i sold it for $1300. sold it to my homegirl. mostlikely the only reason she bought it because i was out of work with no money and that we were fuck buddies
