    My PC is giving me the *****. I only bought it two years ago for a reason lasting two years so it's time to offload it. How much do you think it's worth?
    Dell Inspiron 5100
    2.8Ghz P4
    60gig HD
    512meg RAM
    32meg ATI Radeon 7500
    15" (or 15.4".. I forgot) SXGA+ display (<- the best one )
    a few USB
    a plugin wifi pieca crap
    windows xp pro
    office 2003 blah
    buncha included ****
    whatever else might have been there
    Now clearly it's not worth much from a Mac users' perspective so try and give me a price objectively speaking =)

    P4 Worth

    If you have some pretty good software, you might get $300 or $350 if you're lucky with monitor. I just sold mine a little while back for $300. It's stats were as follows:

    AMD 1700+ Processor
    512K RAM
    60GB Hard Drive
    64MB Video Card
    56K Modem
    15" Dell Monitor
    Windows XP
    Office XP
    blah blah blah

    That was about 5 months ago. Of course, they have appreciated since then? Just a guess. You can get a new "emachine" these days at Best Buy for $399 then add another $100 for a 17" monitor and you're in business.

    PC value

    Go to eBay and do an advanced search for closed auctions for your model of machine. Disregard any that were damaged goods, or had unrealistic bundles.
    The number of bid is an indication of the demand for the model. Watch out for variations due to location.

    (soapbox)Software is legally sellable if the seller includes the original CD and transfers the license to the buyer. There are a horde of sellers on eBay that do "Buy my $500 machine and I'll leave $$$ worth of software on the drive" which is piracy, plain and simple.(/soapbox)
