if i was looking for a new cheap system (and not building), id probably pay about 400 bucks for it. The only problem is that xp is installed. I personally think that you should NEVER upgrade your operating system unless your system is within 2 years of the release of it (or greatly exceeds the requirements). It wouldnt at all subtract from the value at all, in fact it'd probably make it worth more to people, just my opinion

and to market it, just put up a flyer or two around the campus to sell it
