Hello GtG~ I wasn't sure if this was the right spot to post this... please feel free to move it if it's wrong. My question concerns a laptop I just got from my BF's brother. He just got a new iMac so he gave me the old laptop he got from another friend. The laptop is a COMPAQ Presario 1700 Series CM2080. It's in great condition (except the left mouse button, it doesn't click). It has virtually nothing on it (it has Micrsoft Office 98) and would be pretty good for me to use for school. Except when it comes to the specs, it's only got about 20GB HD and 512MB of RAM. I've got the charger, all the papers, CDs and even the box it came it. It also comes with a Floppy Drive (I don't think anyone even uses them anymore though...). That's no good for college (not for me at least). So I want to sell it for money towards a newer laptop but... I'm no good with pricing, can someone tell me what they think it should go for?
Specs in List Form
20GB HD (roughly, it says 18)
512MB of RAM
Floppy Drive (not the small ones)
Paperwork & CDs
Edit: I should mention the reason this laptop is no good for me is that I'm taking graphic art classes and the RAM isn't powerful enough to handle programs like Photoshop, Illutrastor or Flash (right now it's just PS, but in the future I might take Illustrator and Flash). I also am unsure if it can connect to the internet (I tried to make a network but didn't get how to do it really...).
