Not much - if it was not a stock item - about 2/3rds of what you paid for it.

First you have to find a Buyer!

With no OS, you'd have to convince someone that it works. I think them unlikely to buy yours (unless it is a branded one) when they could pick up an Asus (say) with full warranty for 250 quid.

Ok. Thanks for the replies. So what if I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit?

I've sold used ones on ebay for up to £200. If it has a branded name that people recognise, you MAY get that for it (but it will cost you £80 or so for a genuine copy of W7).

I've already got Windows 7. So that isn't anything. If I'm right this laptop would cost between £500 - £600 brand new?

If I'm right this laptop would cost between £500 - £600 brand new?, yes I'd agree but with operating system and 12 months guarantee.

As it's second hand and has never been used/teried it is a bad selling point.

Try ebay.

Cheers guys. You've been a great help.

  kierab6495 22:35 05 Apr 13

One last question. How do I set this discussion as resolved?

I think you have by clicking on the grey tick :)
