    Default Acer Aspire 1692WLMi

    A friend has one of these she was going to put on Trademe for a $1 reserve, having just replaced it with a nice Toshiba (at my recommendation).

    However I had a brainwave and thought the Acer might be ideal for another mate's daughter whose Dell D610 has just sucked a kumara.

    It's in pretty good nick (but slooooow!). Looks to be about five years old..

    I know this sort of question is along the lines of "How long is a piece of string?", but could anyone put a fair-ish value on it? I have looked on Trademe and there are no others of that model up for sale...

    I had the AMD processor version of this, and sold it for $300 about 2 1/2 years ago. Cost me $2000 new about 5 years ago.

    So yeah, not worth very much now. Maybe someone would pay $100-150.

    .
    Congratulations, recommending a decent laptop.

    Now why would you want to inflict a worse one on her - tell her to replace the Dell with a Toshiba also.

    I would - but the mate whose daughter it is for is a bit strapped for cash at the moment. I've started cleaning the Acer up (getting rid of the standard Acer junk programs) nad it seems to run a bit better.

    If it's going from one person to another, just wipe it and start from scratch. Also, it couldn't hurt to chuck a lil' extra ram in it. Laptops from about then had bugger all (by today's standards). I just chucked a spare 256 info the gf's (doubled it), ran so much faster!

    Yeah - this one was reasonably top-end (for an Acer) when it was new. Has 1GB RAM, and is running OK now, without the rubbish they pre-install.

    But really looking for an indication of value so I can keep both friends happy....

    So far just one recommendation aof around $100-$150....
