Default Selling my Laptop and mp3 player

I'm selling my laptop. It's just 4 months old and comes with all the crap they throw in the box (I still have the original box). I also want to sell my mp3 player.

Laptop:
Gateway Pentium M725, XP Pro, 512mb RAM, 80GB HD, DVD/RW, built-in wireless.

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/.../4820sp3.shtml

They are going for like $750 + $49 shipping on eBay so I say $715 + $15 shipping (within US).

MP3 Player:
Creative Jukebox Nomad Zen Xtra 40gb MP3 player. Bought it last year, but other college kids hate me b/c it isn't an "iPod." I barely used it.

On my last trip home I lost the ac adapter so it comes w/o it. All the drivers etc can be downloaded form creative.

It has a small dent on the front, it isn't that noticeable. New firmware will let you store protected music files. Comes with USB 2.0 cable and no case (the case looked gay so I haven't seen it in a while)

Going on eBay for ~$140 + $15 shipping so I say $100 + $8 shipping (within US).

Thanks!

You should get the creative vision. They won't be able to say anything about it since it kills the video Ipod.

Twice the Resolution, 5x the colors, 2x the battery life (3.5x w/ a better battery) of the Ipod. ..and a larger screen/ has a voice recorder, FM/AM tuner that can record onto the hard drive - also plays back way more video formats.

Yeah, I will upgrade after I sell the mp3 player I currently have.

The funny thing is that this has been out way before the video Ipod and it still better.

These video players have been out for years and years.

People buy the iPod just because of the name.

People buy iPod because of the name and because they see it on TV. I've never seen a Creative MP3 player commerical, even though I consider them to be superior.

I don't like iPods either, but I'm trying to sell my laptop and mp3 player here.

Is anyone interested?
