What would this laptop sell for? It is heavily used, with small spots of paint on the corners worn away, and the screen has some marks from the keyboard that won't go away. I also had to butcher the charging cord in a small section because the wires inside had snapped (but the cord works fine now.) All the defects (except the graphics card) are visual.
What I would like to do is get a new laptop that can just barely run the OS (probably windows 7) it comes with, and replace the OS with Ubuntu (or windows XP.)
Does anyone a good place to start off doing this? I went to several websites offering money for broken laptops, but they only offered $150 for mine, but I saw individual components for sale that sell for more than that.
P.S. Would fixing the card again raise the value of the laptop?
