Is it a bargain?

I just purchased a laptop today and Im wondering if it was a steal or not. I paid £325 for it and that included postage to Ireland (republic).

The spec on this machine is as follows.

Advent 7011 DVD Laptop.

CPU Intel Pentium 4 2.40 GHz
Memory 256 MB DDR PC2100 SODIMM (max. 1GB)
Hard Drive 30 GB Hitachi DK32EA
CD Drive QSI SBW-161 DVD/CDRW
Floppy Drive 1.44mb 3.5" Drive
Screen 14.1" TFT (Native Res.1024x768)
Video Card SiS 650 shared 32MB DDR + TV Out
Sound Card SIS 7012 audio chipset
Speaker Stereo Internal
Modem SmartLink 56K modem
Network Card SiS 900 integrated fast ethernet
PC Card 2 x Type I/II, 1 x Type III
Battery Info Li-Ion 5800mAh

The battery does not hold a great charge but thats not too bad a problem, there is nothing else wrong that I know of.

Plus the person threw in XP home and a load of other software and a few DVDs they dont want too.

Did I get a steal or a good price or a total waste of money? Just out for peoples views, as this is the first personal laptop I have owned ever, had a few other bits over the years but none for a good 2 years, my favourite being my Apple iBook when I was working there but that was ages ago.

This would seem to indicate a private sale if I am reading the signs correctly.
