View Full Version : Advice on selling laptops?

18-11-2007, 08:46 PM
I have 2 laptops that I need to sell, and was wondering if anyone could give me some insight on the best way to go about it? Is trademe the best option? Or do you know of some good stores that may want to purchase them off me?

I have a Dell Inspiron 2200 which no longer works but I thought someone may want to buy it for the parts.

I also have a TOSHIBA SATELITE A200 which is only 6 months old, I paid $1600 for it, but also paid around $300 for the full 3 year warranty.
I am unsure as to what an appropriate asking price would be for this?

Any advice on what the best options are is muchly appreciated :)

Trademe. Shops don't do trade ins because they aren't worth it. As for price...what ever you can get for it. For the Toshiba start at... $1000. PC laptops depreciate faster than new cars.

Throw it on Trademe for the highest you think you could possibly sell it for. An example is I sold a $1400 laptop 12 months later for $900 without much effort. Worst comes to worst, you'll just have to re-list it at a lower price until it does sell.
