How much is my 3yr-old Dell Inspirion 6400 laptop worth??

Found 14th Apr 2010
I am thinking about upgrading my 3-yr old Dell Inspirion 6400 laptop to a new Dell laptop (with HDMI) but can't decide on a price for selling.

Here is the spec.

Windows Vista
Intel Core Duo T2400 / 5 Mb Cache / 1.83 GHz / 667 MHZ FSB
15.4" Wide-screen XGA Display
120 Gb 5400 rpm Sata Hard Drive
1 Gb DDR2 SDRAM / 553 MHZ
256 Mb ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 Hyper memory

Unfortunately the battery no longer works. Comes boxed with original restore disks etc

I would give it 8/10 for condition but it has a few light scratches on the outer case only (screen is immaculate) . I paid £550 3 years ago for it - I am think about £220-£250 on this site - any thoughts on a price fellow HotUk'ers?

£100 at a push

sold mine for £140 last august to a mate...id say £100 plus delivery on here.
dont forget u cant sell on here until 7 days(or 10-im not sure) after u close this thread.

I give ya £4.99.

That's why they call me Terry Tibbs.

about £115 inc. delivery and you cant relist now for 7 days.

I have a very similar spec laptop (T2300 / 256mb ATI X1600 / 2gb RAM) might keep hold if it's going to fetch £100 ish :thinking:

annoyingly i have a d620 dell with very similar spec, less the graphics i cant seem to shift lol. all i want is something the same or similar with a little extra graphic grunt.

If/when you do list it I'd be interested - perhaps (assuming its allowed) you can PM me when you re-list it?

cheers,
dan

I'd say it's worth more than £100, I got £92 for a totally dead Vostro 1000 on ebay.

Look at the completed listings on ebay for similar laptops.

Thanks - didn't know about the 7 day limit but I do now :thumbsup:.
I can't believe my laptop is worth so little after only 3 years.:?

thats what i did when i said £100 but because OP spelt it Dell Inspirion only a couple came up (i copy and pasted to save time) :whistling:
I'd revalue it now nearer the £150 mark at a push

i would say £130

If on the bay would say you might get £120 after fees etc. The problem is the Battery since Dell ones are so expensive and you would have to highlight the battery is faulty. If the battery was ok would then be looking at around £160 so not really worth buying one in.

i have a Dell Vostro 1500 just coming up to 2 years and the battery is nearly gone on that (15 Mins if lucky). Dell batteries are known to be poor.

u selling it?
