as Miguel said, model would be important as the Inspiron (Home), Latitude (Business) and Precision (Business) lines differ greatly.

i know u paid $2100 but what would be the market value of a used laptop thats around 1 yr old?

im interested but i think that $1400 is too high, i could be wrong

anyone who knows more bout this input would be greatly appreciated

check Ebay....of course you must consider shipping,exchanges and possible duties and courier fees if you buy from the US of A.....

The fair price would be around like $1000. But then thats just my guess.

you know what...those specs aren't too bad...even if it's a year old
1400 obo is what i would ask for and 1000 is still a decent selling price

I think it should be alot less.. around $1000 also in all serioesness I bought a IBM T40 Thinkpad with:
Intel Mobile Centrio Processor at 1.4 GHZ
512 DDR ram
40 GIG HD
CD R/CD RW/DVD Rom
15" Screen
Radeon 7500 Mobile ATI 64 MB + Video Out
All the software.
The case and some cheap speakers for $1200 including tax..

the only things that could possibly raise the price of this laptop in my opinion is the Name.. dell is good shit and the fact that it has a DVD writer in it. Not the cheapest thing to have in a laptop. I would say $1200 would be a good price..

I bought it through IBM.. its a older model. They had just come out with the T41 so my model had dropped in price alot. It was new when I bought it this summer.
