Maybe, but not if it will not boot up with an OS. People need to see the computer boot; even if you only have an old copy of XP installing it will seal the deal. I have sold old PCs at garage sales at a premium because I had them running and connected to the Internet for people to actually test drive.
ok, thanks guys, i have a copy of xp somewhere, i sort of new that i wouldn't be able to sell it for that mutch... But thats how much i need for my upgrade.
@geekappro, i know this is off topic, but how is that i3 performing? Is it worth it, because then i could lower the price, seeing as it costs 50 dollars less than the i5
You could also install linux on there, to show them it does stuff it comes with all sorts of programs. Of course when come come back complaining it doesn't install their windows programs remind them of your no refund policy ^_^
