    Price Check: Dell 12" Laptop Inspiron 2100 80GB Wireless

    Hi, I have quite an old laptop lying here not doing anything.

    It is an Inspiron 2100 which is also called a Latitude 400 (L400)

    Here are the Specs

    PIII - 700mhz
    256mb or 512mb of RAM (Not Sure)
    5200RPM 80GB HD
    PCMCIA Linksys 54G Wireless
    12" Screen

    I think that is around it.

    It is running Windows XP fine, I just use it to read email and browse.

    It is nice and light weight too which is the main thing.

    It is this one here:

    Dell Latitude L400/Inspiron 2100

    Comes with the ful Windows Millennium Edition License too.

    And the battery is a joke, maybe 1 minute if you are a lucky, I think new ones are £20 or so.

    How much do you think its worth?

    I think the problem with laptops like these now are things like the asus Eee which can do it all for £200 brand new and the new versions onlu £300 with bigger HDD and screen.

    Given the lack of battery and that they will be £35 at least unless you find a company willing to do a swap for your old one so they can refurb it, I don't think you could ask more than £80 -£100. Even then I'd be suprised if you sell it becasuse of that asus.

    Sorry guys, but I think £100 is really pushing it with no working battery + only a Windows ME licence

    If you can get 100 quid for it, take it
