Not sure this is the right place to ask but....

Sister has bought a laptop doesn't want it, never used it.
I fired it up to see what it's got on it and specs.

pentium R4 28.8
DVD RW + CD (presumably RW also, didn't say)
37 gig HDD
192 megs Ram
XP home with SP 1
Agere AC'97 modem
Complete with carrying case.

I have honestly had it going for maybe ten minutes to run through the setup and have a look at the specs.

What do you think is a fair price. She paid $2,500 for it. (thereabouts, maybe $4,995 sort of thing)

On my way through Dick Smith today I stopped of to check out what they had on laptops.
Looked (not interested in buying) at an asus p4 3.06 , has everything yours has plus more memory, built in card reader, wide screen LCD and it's an Asus :) .
that was going for $2100 and change.
You are probably looking at around $1400 tops
But for $1300 Joe Public can buy a brand new acer Laptop which is pretty crappy but it can go on the never never pay plan and it comes with a full warranty
Yours is in a tricky price range to sell.

add some more ram and you may get some more $$

Hmmmm. Doesn't look good. Didn't think it did. She's going to loose a bundle just like a new car driven out of the showroom. Thanks for your replies.....m
