As much as the market will bare. Giving any more advice than that would mean price fixing, and other anti-competitive behavior. Illegal in the US. i have no idea what to charge. Im far from a pro. Its more of a " i want a small website", and my buddy said he knew someone (ie me!). Im the computer g...

Your X31 is worth, what $700-900 used now? Try pricing a used Dell Latitude D400 (very similar vintage, DDR, Pentium M, centrino, 3.8lb ultralight, etc) and it's about half of that. $400-$500. And that's a latitiude folks, not an inspiron! So your IBM actually has pretty good resale value. its its ...

So what are you wanting for the X31? Is there any warranty left on it? ;) i bought it lightly used, it was a month old but flawless. i do not think it has a warranty, but i did call ibm a while ago, and they helped me out. i dont know what to ask for it, but if i could boot osx i would keep it :lol:
