$250 would be fair, and if you slapped in a Crystal HD decoder (mini PCI-e) that thing would easily play 1080p and would add $100 to the value for a $50 investment. Not a bad little internet machine at all and considering it has a HDMI port I would personally be asking $300 or so and take the first offer over $250 you feel comfortable with.

250 would be a little high, 175-200 seems more reasonable as long as the battery holds a good charge.

Under $200 would be fine if there were no HDMI and no mini PCI-E expansion slots.

IF you need a quick sale then post it here or RFD for $200 firm, but if you want to make the most then list it on EBay and I bet it hits mid/upper $200's mostly because of the 2 reasons I listed.

if you try on ebay, you will pay for selling fees and then paypal fees which will come down to original asking price:(

List it up for 250-275 and sell it for 200-230. Try kijiji and stuff first.

Make sure you are putting emphasis in your ad that it has HDMI and you will do just fine!

No harm in that. And good luck with your sale. And if it's for a video card upgrade, I hope you are going to stick to team green
