Hey All, first real post for me...

I will be bakc in the UK on the 4th Nov - 13th (Currently working/living in China..

I am looking at a) suggestions for real price of the above laptop b) possible offers?

Im not sure of its worth now, but it was worth aprox 1000pounds when purchased about 3 years ago.

Laptop was upgraded from 1 gig or ram to 2 gig.

I have been using it for rendering (Sketchup), using CAD etc... Id say this is a perfect machine for anyone looking to use it for these things. Im upgrading now becaused the buildings here are bigger and go up faster :)

The machine is fine, only problems is the battery life is now very poor (but if you want, i can get you a new one from china for a very reasonable price)...

the original spec is below:

Few words of advice mate (hopefully so your thread doesnt get locked!)
Firstly you cant use the FS/FT section to fish for prices, you have to set your price and if your listing here you have to be looking to sell otherwise this thread belongs in the misc section. You should also remember that if it is listed here then it can only be listed here.
Secondly to save your thread from bumps / lock (remember the three bump rule) you should upload some pictures including your user name and the date on paper next to the item. As its your first sale its useful to provide links to other feedback such as your ebay username.
Finally if you do get any interest be prepared for requests for you to post before payment. This is perfectly safe to members with high levels of feedback and is a good way to build your trust on this site. Always remember to swap all the required details with your buyer and keep all trade in the thread not pm. Hope this helps, good luck with your sale!

Thank you very much for the advice, Its very appreciated.

I will get a photo on with my username either later tonight or tomorrow morning (laptops at home, and I'm in work). Is it possible to move this to another thread?

Im only asking for advice about he price because Im not sure if im honest.

I can understand that I would need to post first before money, thats why i would ideally rpefer to meet in person (Due to short time at home in UK), but if anyone from far whaed to buy, I would send first if they had high feedback here.

Again, cheers for the heads up.

In my opinion your best bet is to set a price and be honest about the fact you dont know its value and say your open to offers. Try looking at completed listings on ebay, cex, old threads on here etc to figure out a price. You could report your thread to the mods to be moved to misc to gauge a price but then you would have to lock that thread and wait 7 days before relisting in FS/FT, not worth the hassle!

Locking this pending price and pics, please use the report function to provide these when you're ready and do not relist meantime.
