Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.

Making an offer on a used laptop

So my friend just upgraded laptops and has a used Sony Vaio pcg-6h4l that she says she'll give me a good deal on if I make an offer.
Its specs are;
Pentium M 1.86ghz
512meg ram
100gig HD
Windows XP w/ office install

It works fine but the CD/DVD rom is busted and the AC adapter is a bit loose. I've tried to find any used prices on these things but can only find parts websites. I want to get a deal but I don't want to just rip my friend off either. Any body have any suggestions on a fair price? She just wants to get rid of it.

    Looking at those specs, and especially with those particular issues, I don't think I'd give more than 100-150 for it. You can replace the CD/DVD drive easy enough, but the AC adapter being loose is going to be a pain in the ass. Even if you get it plugged in right, you won't be able to move it at all without it coming loose and you not noticing. The other problem with that is if it keeps coming unplugged and plugged all the time it could damage the battery.

    I pinky swear that we will not screw you.
