Computer:

Discussion in 'OGF Marketplace' started by BottomBouncer, Feb 25, 2005.

  1. This was the computer is used before I bought this one. It has windows '98 w/ Pentium II, monitor, keyboard, mouse, (2) speakers, etc... Will do most jobs, internet, papers.....just about anything you want to do. No viruses or anything.

    I had to buy new 'puter for school so that I could use Microsoft Office XP for one of my information systems classes.

    Asking $600 for everything. :)

    bb. I hate to tell you this, but you can get new ones 10x as fast for half that.

    That's what sucks about technology. It was considered obsolete yesterday.
     

  3. LOL........I would probably almost take 1/2 of that :p

    Maybe run an ad on the school bullitin board. I bought a similar one myself last year for $200...Pent 3 that ran over $2,000 from Gateway in 1999 from a buddy. Hate to admit it, but it's more/less useless compared to what you can buy new. I understand you needing the money, might check out Ebay & see what they are bringing, maybe you could get more there. You might have to move it for about $100, as price is going to have to be the motivating factor. That's just my take, doen't mean a thing, with years of selling used furniture, I just come to believe most people only buy used because the price is so low they can't refuse.

    Don't give up, there's someone out there whom it will just be perfect for, a senior adult who wants to try one, and to get emails & pictures from their children (maybe someone will get it for a parent or relative) or someone like me who needs one for thier kids to keep them off dad's machine. Cater your ad around that market.
    Here's a tip, check out getting used books too. My daughter did that, both sold some & bought some, paid less than $10 for one that runs $85 new...same book, be sure to check the numbers so you purchase the correct edition. ;)

    BB,
    If you can get some pics of that thing and some more specs I might know someone intersted. If you can download a program called Belarc Advisor (free from www.Belarc.com ) and run the program it will tell me all the things I would need to know about it. You can save the results as a webpage or document and email it to me Pair8hed@yahoo.com

    Also what is your bottom line on it?
