Looking for an appraisal for a CQ60-220US laptop that I've made some changes to. The product link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834107025

Stock specs & changes made:
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium - Changed to Windows 7 Professional 64bit
CPU Type: Intel Pentium dual-core T3400(2.16GHz)
Screen: 15.6" HP BrightView Glossy LCD - Changed to an Acer-subsidiary manufactured matte screen.
Memory Size: 2GB DDR2 - Upgraded to 4GB (2X2GB) Kingston DDR2.
Hard Disk: 250GB 5400RPM Hitachi HDD - Swapped out with an 80GB Intel 320 SSD.
Graphics Card: Intel GMA 4500M
Battery: Replaced with a thicker Anker battery that gets about 4 hours. The new battery elevates the laptop for more comfortable typing and also allows more air into the laptop for better temperatures.

I've also recently replaced the fan and added copper shims & IC Diamond 24 TIM to both the CPU and GPU to solve an overheating issue it used to have.

There are 2 issues with the laptop, one being the headphone jack only outputs sound from the right channel, and the caps lock LED indicator does not work.

Any idea on the price?
