What resale price can I expect for a 3 year old Compaq Presario 2100US with the following config:

AMD Athalon 2800, 80GB HDD, 512MB RAM, CD writer, spare battery. Looks similar to the image below.

If everything is working fine, I guess you would get around 8-9k

Default IBM Thinkpad T43p

How much resale value can I expect for my current computer?

IBM Thinkpad T43p
P M 760(2GHz),
1GB RAM,
60GB 7200rpm HDD,
15in 1600x1200 LCD,
128MB ATI FireGL V3200,
CD-RW/DVD-R Multi-Burner,
Intel 802.11abg wireless, Bluetooth/Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure Chip, Fingerprint Reader, 6c Li-Ion, WinXP Pro

It's in excellent condition (nearly as new), with practically no marks on it at all. I have all the booklets, accessories that came with the laptop except the box.

I am looking at replacing the above with a sub portable laptop. How much I can get for the above will decide on what to replace it with (thinking of going with Dell M1330 vs Sony SZ vs Apple Macbook (just to be different)).

Can an expert help?

Was the sale to a dealer or individual? Usually dealers quote really low prices.

A new 14.1inch Celeron M Acer pebble laptop with DVD combo, wireless blah blah can be bought in Bangalore for 21k all inclusive with carrybag and warranty, so used laptops are dead cheap these days.

Sale was to a dealer. I know the guy we have like purchased 5 - 7 laptops from him + i have recommended most of my friends to him.

Other dealers were quoting 6 - 6.5 K max for my laptop.

@ gopz laptops in bangalore are cheaper(cost wise lol) than in punjab side. I recently purchased laptop for 31k and its priced 30K at bangalore.

My daughter has been using an Acer Travelmate 2314 for 3-4 years & it seems the AC adapter has developed a fault. Is it possible to repair laptop AC adapters? If not, how can I buy a new one for a reasonable price? Kolkata dealers are quoting 1.6K to 1.8K for a "compatible" one.

Acer 4310
Pebble Design (Looks cool)
Celeron M 530 (1.73Ghz 1MB L2 cache)
512 MB RAM
80GB HDD
14.1" TFT 1280 x 800
WiFi, Modem, LAN, Webcam, Card reader etc
DVD Combo (Can buy a model with DVD writer + 1GB RAM for 3k extra - Acer 4315)
1 year warranty included.
No OS

Dealers wont stock this model because they dont have margin - you must inform them in advance and they will get it for you from Acer.

Absolutely VFM and is enough for basic internet browsing/ MS Office usage
