How much is my computer worth?

  • I'm interesting in possibly selling my computer. I bought it in August of 2001, and it's in perfect condition and taken very well care of. I'm just inquiring to someone who might know how much I can get for it - here are the vitals.

    Dell Dimension XPS B800
    P3 - 800 mHz
    128 RDRAM
    32MB GeForce 2GTS Video
    48 GB HardDrive with ATA-100 Controller Card
    Soundblaster Live
    19" Dell Trinitron Monitor
    8x Sony CD-Rewritable
    12X NEC DVD
    Keyboard/Mouse/etc
    Windows XP, MS Office 2000 Professional
    Originally purchased around $2700

    Computer works great - trying to conserve space and get a new Dell laptop.

    Thanks in advance,
    TB




  • Hi There TB1034



    Sell it on EBay, there you may get decent price, Dell wo'nt give you anything for it or sell it to a friend or relation, used computers do'nt sell for very much on the open market thease days, too much competition from the makers and resellers.

    Lots of luck,


    Bev

  • Hi,

    You're probably going to be appalled at how little it is now worth, even after only six months. It's greatest value, if you're in a position to take advantage of it, is as a tax-deductible contribution to a non-profit organization. That's a win-win situation: you come out ahead, and the charity will love you.
