    Default Off Topic - swap my PC kit for a laptop

    Hi. I want to get the missus a gift but I can't afford a new laptop. So would anyone want to exchange:

    I've got about a grand's worth of old PC kit, almost all 1 owner with boxes and manuals.

    A brief summary below... more info if you're interested:

    Full ATX case with mobo etc
    P3 1000
    Video card 64mb
    Soundblaster card
    Ram 64mb pc100
    17" monitor (Philips - almost brand new!)
    Keyboard
    mouse
    Speakers (el cheapo)
    ------
    Midi case, mobo etc
    Cyrix (something... maybe old 86)
    Video (4mb)
    Sound card
    Modem 33.3
    Hard drive 4 gig
    Speakers (even more el cheapo)
    Ram (ummm about 36mb)
    ------
    Software:
    Win 95
    -------
    More software open to negotiation - all legit with manuals etc, mostly boxed:
    Large range of games
    Win 98 (1st ed)
    Another Win 95
    -------

    The laptop/notebook I'm after needs to have usb port/s, and be comfortably capable of running XP.
    --------
    I think there's more bits to the hardware, but I'll confirm if I get any enquiries.

    Thanks!

    Your pc is worth 250 bucks.

    The cyrix is worthless.

    As is win95.

    Not to be harsh,but well.....

    Ever played soccer Metla? Well they use the same thing that you speak.

    It's not a PC, it's a bunch of kit... the monitor alone is $250

    No one would want to swap 95 windows for a lap top. I gave mine away.

    Along with your 2 cell brain?

    Sheesh! It's the hardware, not the software! That's just a throw in! :_| Moron

    If anyone's not interested, please keep your opinion to yourselelf why don't you!

    If I wanted to go out and buy the kit above to assemble a gaming machine for kiddies and a workstation for word processing etc, I'd easily pay a grand for it. In return for a $400 used laptop I reckon it's not a ridiculous ask.

    Being generous Greg, and not being a soccer player, IMHO the lot is not worth much more than $500 inclusive of all the software & hardware you can find to go with it. The problem with bulk deals is that prospective buyers don't want all that you offer so their price is based on what they want, the rest will be dumped.

    You can find a laptop for $500 but it won't run XP, or you can find a laptop that will run XP, but it won't be $500.

    I admire your intentions, but there's an aspiration gap there that you are unlikely to bridge unless you find a very kind person. A red coat and full set of reindeer, or wings and a wand are an absolute minimum spec.

    Cheers

    Apologies for my harsh words to Metla and co.
