Hi there,

I have an old Base unit that I keep meaning to get rid of, I am think of putting it on Ebay but not sure what to sell it for?!
Any thoughts please would be greatly appreciated!
Spec is as:
AMD 400mhz Socket type,ASUS Motherboard(5PCI,2ISA,1AGP) 64MB SDRAM PC100, x52 CDROM, 4.3GB Seagate Hard drive, Floppy drive, S3 Trio AGP Graphics card, 56K Modem, Soundblaster Soundcard..c/w Win98SE,4D Scroll mouse and keyboard.
Iam keeping the monitor, it is not branded, built by me many moons ago....
It is in excellent condition, justa ballpark figure please.

Sorry to say this but probably nothing.

£130 without monitor

cassie75, I agree with Switcher, to a point! If the O/S CD is included in the offer then it must be worth £75 to £100.

Not a lot I know, but this could make an excellent starter system for someone who can't afford to buy the latest specs. I think there is still a lot of useful life left in this system. Regards J.

Sorry woodchip, you posted while I was still typing! (Or trying to) :o)

Hi cassie75
I too am sorry to say you will get very little for your machine.
It sounds like it was a fond friend of yours, Have you ever considered donating it to one of those charities that help introduce young children to computers? It may again become useful? Just a thought.

I agree with what you say

Hi, It will be worth a million dollars to someone who otherwise wouldn't be able to get one if you donate it. Cheers, Bill

DO you REALLY want this?
Donate it to a computer charity. Look for one on UK google.

In my opinion, £50, if you are very lucky, especially as you don`t mention an O/S.

I know this seems very little, but a quick look through any PC mag will show you the incredible offers for an up to date machine.

Just looking on ebay and there is a 400mhz going for £85.00 item number 2304107532, so i should think you could easilly get the same if not more.
