Moved to appropriate forum to guage interest before selling.
personally i reckon about £450
that seems reasonable - can anyone suggest the best way of getting the best price for it??

forget here u will either be offered silly prices or just thread spoiling

and that price is if u hit it lucky

dual cores 2gb ram 160gb hard drive specs can be had for £400 ish

yours has the edge with a nvidia 6400 :thumbsup:
Try your local paper... Cash on collection & no fees for P+P, ebay, paypal etc...
i wonder if i can try my local paper for...............
ok might give it a go - can u now recommend any decent replacements??

cheers for your help
