I am selling my old Inspiron 8000 laptop since I just got a new centrino replacement. I was wondering how much it's really worth.... is it worth $700? I honestly don't have a clue, but I paid $1700 back in the days for it, when Geforce2Go just came out.
P3 800/650 speedstep
512MB Infineon CL2 PC100/133 RAM (maxed out)
16MB Geforce2 Go
15'' IBM UXGA screen, 1600x1200 - no dead pixel whatsoever, clear and beautiful screen - THE reason I got this laptop. In side-by-side comparison, it actually has a FASTER response time than my new centrino... shocking. It's got to be in the 30ms if not better. Contrast level is not as good as the new laptop however. But it is SHARP as hell.

serial port (!) - old school style
ECP/EPP parallel port
PS/2 mouse/keyboard port
harmon kardon speakers - can get louder than you would expect, quite clear on high end, and yes there's basically no bass like any other laptop speakers
