    You will get no where near as much as expected. I'll tell you that.

    I would clock the value at

    Dell 4550: $500
    15 LCD : $150
    Printer: $50
    Total: $700-850 on Ebay
    Start bidding at $400 and spruce up the sale, might as well take off $500 off the price because it is a dell :)

    Good Luck

    I would say $500, maybe $600 depending on the legitamacy and type of installed software.

    I agree with $500. I can build a computer much better than that one for about 600.

    It's probably worth more in pieces. Sell the speakers, printer, and monitor seperately. Then get what you can for the computer--maybe around $300.
