Hi all,

Looking to sell my laptop on ebay, and have been watching ebay for a bit to see prices but not much seems to crop up.
There are quite a few for repairs/damaged on there which seem to fetch £100+ which surprised me.

It's an Acer Aspire 8930g

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5800 @ 2.00GHz
4GB RAM
32-bit
NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS (Dedicated graphics memory 512 MB, Shared system memory 1278 MB)
320GB HDD

Good condition (still got the plastic on the lid!), charger fully functional etc
2 years old.

Any ideas of how much it's now worth?

Thanks,
James

It's cheaper to grab a parts spare than to buy new hardware and pay for the labor.

Is the battery also 2 years old?
Probably substantially less than the cost of a new laptop like the $620 Lenovo IdeaPad Z565 Turion II Dual-Core P540(2.4GHz)CPU 15.6" 1366x768 LCD & Mobility Radeon HD 5470 graphics, 4GB RAM 500GB HDD and a 1 year warranty.


Mfg date: 29/08/2008 says on the bottom, so a little over 2 years - and yes the battery is the same age.

Any more price opinions? Haven't seen any similar ones for sale, only ones for repairs.

Everything is still fully functional.

The battery age is going to drag the price down. Most people will know it's time to buy a replacement.
How long is your battery lasting on a charge?

I will test it now. What should I do for the test? Browse, watch a movie or leave it on the desktop background?

Browse with wireless is the most 'average' use.
If you're in the mood to watch a movie you could do that too.
Actually, you could just start one and walk away.
