Default is this a good deal?

hey guys,

so im in the market for a new laptop (hopefully a macbook) and im planning on getting rid of my current one.

the laptop i have no is a dell d410 with a P-M 1.86ghz, 1gb ddr2 533mhz ram and a 60gb hd. I've got two batteries, a media base, and an external DVD-rom, plus another 1.5 years of dell gold-tech support, next day service, etc.

I was offered 525.00 for the whole thing and was just wondering if thats a decent offer. Let me know!

Keep it at $525 and see if somebody is interested.

Perhaps the MODS should move this into the BST forum.

With all the extras it'd be worth more around $575 I'd say.
