    Hi Guys

    Need some help. Could someone please value my laptop. The specs are as follows from what I can remember:


    Sony Vaio - 1yr 4months old...used but no abused.
    1.8ghz Centrino Processor
    2mb Cache
    17" Widescreen 1440x900 - xBlack Screen
    512mb Ram
    80gb HDD
    256 x600 ATI Independent Graphics Card
    DVD +/- RW
    3 USB Ports

    Think thats the main stuff

    Cheers(y)

    Its no more then a few dollars. Used laptops aren't a great buy so it'll be hard to get a great price for it. New laptops can be had for $500-600, usually with similar specs and full warranties and with no use. The only nice things are the 17" widescreen and the dedicated X600 graphics card - but thats only a benefit for a gamer or as a desktop replacement - for those who want a small portable laptop its a hindrance.

    The best way to see how much it is worth is to look it up on ebay. See what they have sold for.

    The eBay idea is a good one, get the model number of the laptop and see what they are selling for: http://www.ebay.co.uk/

    OK just knock off 50 for the RAM difference. That's about $100 US right?

    I thought pounds sterling were equal to about two US dollars, or am I wrong about "£" being the pound symbol. £600 sounds like a shilled-up price to me.

    I can get an up-to-date NEW system for 1200USD with a full-blown Pentium or Athlon processor, not that weak Centrino.
