    Re: Price check please, HP Pavilion laptop

    I guess you might stretch £200 out of the laptop if you were lucky - £150 is more likely though. The base unit's harder, since it's obviously a server-type board and therefore somewhat specialist. if you found the right buyer you could probably get a good price on it - for general sale I doubt you could make much more than £50 (since it's all outdated tech)... It might even sell better if you bundle the mobo / cpu / ram and sell the case and other bits separately...

    As a general rule, for a 1yr old lappy I recon you're looking at between 2/3 to 3/4 the original price.

    Well it was £510 new (still got receipt), I'd be happy with anything over £250 tbh

    Re: Price check please, HP Pavilion laptop

    I still think you'll struggle to break £200 - the problem is you can pick up something like this for ~ £350 with better specs (Pentium Dual Core @ 2GHz, GeForce 8200M, 250GB hard drive) and most people would rather pay the £100 extra for something new with manufacturer's warranty. The technology has moved on so comparable laptops now are cheaper than you paid originally, and you need to base your 2nd hand price on that reality.

    Also, I'm not sure about the 17" screen: with the growth of the netbook market a lot of people are looking towards smaller, more portable laptops; your machine isn't specced highly enough to really cut it as a desktop replacement, but the large screen means it's not particularly portable.

    Of course, none of that means you won't find someone who disagrees with me and reckons it's a steal at £250... it's just my view of the current market...

    Best bet is selling it to Family or Firends they never know.

    I agree with that. Also It won't help that some HP laptop's were fitted defective GPU's and sensible people will shy away from buying one (new or S/hand).

    Check some completed listings for the notebook on Ebay. This should give you a good indication of how much it will be worth.
