Try to sell it and see how many hits you get.
Its a little pricey for the US but there are always people out there that are willing to spend more.

Just look for a place where people don't know a lot about computers, that should do the trick!

Everyone that comments on this page will be able to get that particular machine at extremely low prices... HOWEVER you will not be trying to sell that machine in this forum, so you should keep your price at what you have...

Remeber there are millions of people that will pay whatever you set it at just b/c they would never find a better deal...
Some people don't care what they spend.

so with that knowledge.... Sell your computer to one of them.
You can keep it where it is my friend.

Tip: If you ever stored sensitive info on it

use an erasing program like:

I downloaded it off but that should work
same program I think

and overwrite all the empty space or if you really wanted to.. the whole hdd....

Call me paranoid but better safe than sorry....
