Default Computer Buy backs?

Hi, I'm looking to sell the 2 computers I have now, and get 1 gaming-grade laptop. Is there any place that accepts computers in a buy back sort of thing?

I have a desktop PC, and a laptop atm.

Desktop:
Intel Pentium 4, 3.08 GHz
1 GB DDR Ram
nVidia 6800 GS
100 GB HDD


Laptop:
Acer 4720Z
Dual Core, 1.46 GHz
2 GB DDR2 Ram
etc...

I also have an extra GB of DDR2 Notebook Ram..

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure of places that do buybacks on this sort of thing, other than pawn shops and the like. You could attempt to sell them either here on the Buy/Sell/Trade/Hot Deals forum, or on ebay. The laptop sounds reasonable. The computer on the other hand will probably not get you much. I would bet you'd be lucky to get $600 combined total for the lot.

Hmmm.. What brand and how new? I'd say $700 for the lot with the LCD screen (if it's a good name brand and not very old).

If you say something's a gaming laptop people usually want to know what kind of vidoe card it has.

You could sell on ebay, but the above poster is right...won't get much. Could also try Craigslist.
