What is a realistic price for...

  Cod12 22:13 15 Apr 07

...an Advent 3519 PC. I am selling one and have hardly used it. It cost me £1500 from PC world in May 2004. I have listed the spec below. How much should I be putting this in the ad section of my local newspaper? I am not up with PC's these days, so if anyone can tell me a realistic figure to sell this PC for that would be much appreciated.

Thank You

Im afraid with the deals out there at the moment,not a lot...sorry :-(

Best offer,my guess around £150-£200

I take it has a Operating system ?

Hi, at a guess I would say not more, and probably rather less, than one third of what you paid for it.

Just sold same sort of spec. £200.00 sold to a friend .

Wouldn't be able to sell to just anybody, as they
would expect a warranty, and once I've sold something, I don't like living with it .

has it got an operating system is so which ???

I think being a bit more realistic, a great computer for a new user, someone not too savvy about pc prices, you might expect to get about £300 - but not if it is to a friend, friends always expect things 'a bit cheaper'. Also you could explain to un-savvy person "no warranty, hence 'Cheap' price!!"

Have a look on ebay for similar spec, and their prices.

£220 tops. You can buy a Dell, similar spec and Vista...and 19"TFT for £339 delivered......and a year guarantee.

You'll be extremely lucky to get £200 for it. As has already been mentioned, Dell will sell you a new Core 2 Duo based system including a very good 19" tft monitor and running Vista for under £500.

and we still dont know if it has an operating system ????

Pretty decent machine for most users - good luck with the sale.

Agree with the above PC's lose value quicker than used cars.
