    Really, it depends on where you live. Around here in my town, you could get [bold]maybe[/bold] $200 (USD) or so, if you get someone who knows a little about PCs, or if you find a moron who just wants to surf around the Net and nothing else and does not really know much at all about PCs, then I could prolly rip someone off of $300 to $400. Again, it just depends on where you live and how much the potential buyer(s) know about computers.

    The average income around here, btw, is about $35,000/year, with maybe 5% of the population knowing quite a bit about computers, 80% knowing a little, and the rest being total morons.

    200 (USD) is way too much. I got a pretty decent computer for 200 dollars...celeron D 330, 512MG PC2700 RAM, 80 gig hd, onboard graphic/sound, CD-RW/DVD drive, and 8-1 media reader...considering its only 200 dollars. I say you can probably cell it for somewhere between 80-120 bux...150 maybe if you get really good deal...considering you have a 1.0 GHz processor. I bet you'll have more luck if you go like China or something, one of those not to computer wized countries

    yes but they don't invent them, they just make them. If you look at computers in china, they're all a little behind the US comps.

    considering a 3.0GHZ computer costs over 1300 USD, yeah it's a bit more expensive than us

    Two weeks back Dell was giving $750 off of the Dimension XPS Generation 4. I think the purchase had to be at least $1600. Correct me if I'm wrong. It was a really good deal, came with a 17" LCD, 3.2 Ghz 640, 1 GB of DDR2 533 RAM, Windows XP Media Center Edition, 160 GB SATA Hard Drive, nVidia GeForce 6800, wireless keyboard & mouse, and a free printer. I wouldn't call all that for $850, "expensive." You obviously haven't been looking in the right places.
