    Hi, I want to sale my computer and want to know how much it is worth. Here are the specs:

    Dell Dimension 2400
    Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.60GHZ
    Windows Vista Ultimate
    1GB Ram (2 512's) DDR-PC3200U
    70 Gb HDD
    I/O Magic Internal Dvd+-RW/Cd Burner and Reader

    Thanks.

    "The Bottom Line
    If you are willing to watch for Dell's changes on the sub-$500 configuration of the Dimension 2400, you can walk away with a very strong machine for the money"

    Yours is an upgraded version of this model. Getting 60% of the original purchase price would be a good starting point. This is not to say you couldn't get more. Bear in mind the fact that, what would you pay for this system second hand, knowing what the cost was?

    Cheers.

    It is not really worth that much these days.
    Celeron is a cheap processor.
    DDR RAM is outdated, No graphics card.70GB hard drive is way too small. Plus you can get a new system with about the same specs (other than the amount of RAM) from Dell for about $500 (like the E591)

    I would say if you can upgrade it then go for it.

    i agree with steimy the amount of money you would get for that pc wouldnt really be worth it since for the same price you could build a better pc just try and upgrade it if you can

    I bought a PC like that for a family member for $350.... 3-4 years ago. I personally doubt that that PC would muster much more than $300 tops.

    First of all Windows ME IMO was one of the worst operating systems ever. All kinds of bugs, especially in the restore components.

    Can you or anyone else elaborate on the comment about files being deleted over the net? This doesn't make any sense, and highly doubt its validity.

    Off the point.. New price (with an Nvidia graphics card) £249 They sell them as "Dell E-machines".. rubbish and unreliable.
    Therefore my maximum price for this machine has to be.. £60 (£62.50 if you take vista off it first)

    If I was you I'd use it for a server, or put linux on it and use it as a test bed...
