    I've decided to sell my old laptop off but I really don't have a clue what it'd be worth. So I was wondering if you guys would mind telling me what you think it might be worth.

    The specs are as follows:
    2.0 Gigahertz Intel Celeron
    512 MB PC2100 RAM (upgraded from 256 MB)
    40 GB 5400 rpm Hard drive(upgraded from 20 GB)
    DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive
    Windows XP Pro
    Word Perfect 10 (Preloaded by HP)
    Battery, Power cord, and phone cord

    Also included are:
    All the original disks that came with the system
    All the original instruction books and papers
    4 Port USB 1.1 Hub, powercord, and USB cable
    Interact PS2 Mouse, Port Adapter, and driver floppy
    Windows cumulative update CD, and SP2 update CD

    It's got some cosmetic flaws to it (2 small cracks on the front, right hand side of the lid, the paint came off of the bottom in parts, and a missing flap part over the card slot), but it still lasts around 2-3 hours on battery, and the battery still holds a full charge.

    Not bad. I'd go with the 500 USD Tagert gave you. Maybe more if you could fix the paint.

    Personally i have a laptop where the pain is gone, i bought a can of spraypaint, taped it off properly, and gave it a whole new look. (It is rather interesting typing, as i sprayed over all the keys, so you don't know what you are hitting :p)

    Screen size and model# ???

    I can get a new Acer 15 inch 1.6 gig Mobile Sempron but with only 256MB ram for $499. The RAM is only worth about $20 now.

    The XP Pro and Wordperfect don't add much value and the cosmetic damage hurts. Assuming it's 15 inch and not 14 inch I'd say $500 as a max. Of course if you find a sucker you can always get more than it's worth.

    Check closing prices on Ebay for the same model.

    LeeJend,
    It's a HP Pavillion ze4200 with a 14.1" TFT screen (I knew I forgot something:eek: ). I didn't know whether the OS and installed software mattered or not (it's the first time I've ever sold a comp and I'm kinda clueless(but what's new there?)).


    X-Istence,
    The spraypaint wouldn't be a bad idea if I wasn't asthmatic. (I'd get killed by the fumes from the paint)

    Thanks everyone for responding.

    Not a bad idea, I have a 2 covers on the bottom of mine that need a little touching up.
