Hi guys, I'm looking to sell an HP laptop from 2009. I've made some upgrades and some *genuine* software comes pre-installed as listed below:
-15.6" 720p screen
-3 GB of DDR2 RAM (upgradeable to 4)
-Pentium dual-core
-Crucial M4 128 GB SSD
-Windows 8 Pro
-MS Office Pro+ 2013
-Holds decent battery life
-Great physical condition

Appraisals would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Keep in mind the SSD is brand new.

What's the exact model?

Pretty important detail. Don't know whether it is a high quality enterprise machine or a junky consumer item.

All I can say is that the SSD is worth around $80 dollars.

The software and SSD is worth considerably more than the laptop itself - the downside is that nobody's going to pay you a premium for the Windows 8 or Office 2013 licenses unless you include the retail box with the activation key certificates. If the system was part of a KMS/MAK license for a company or school, you can't even legally give the software away - the license stays with the organization that bought it, and can't be portioned out.

The SSD is worth about $80-$90. The rest of the laptop is probably worth $200. I say you got a $300-$350 package there as it sits. $500 if you have Windows 8 and Office 2013 Pro retail boxes and keys to go with it, AND can find somebody willing to pay for it.

As a package you are probably looking at around $300-330. Parted out? (provided laptop still runs/software boxes/etc.) probably around $400.

Thanks guys. It's just a run of the line average consumer laptop. No high quality enterprise jazz.
I've had it in craigslist for a while at $240 and no bites so far.

Oh, and I should probably add that I do no have the retail boxing for the software. I know that doesn't help the value and seems a bit suspicious, but oh well. I got them cheap through this mom and pop PC outlet store near me.

Without the retail packaging for the software I would say your best bet is to try and get what it's worth as a whole system.
