How much could I sell this Acer Aspire for?

For how much do you think I can sell this Acer Aspire?

It's an Acer Aspire 4736G

Can't seem to find much on this particular model on Amazon. Could somebody give me a ballpark or a good starting price on ebay for bidding? Almost 3 years old. Still runs well and in great condition and comes with Windows 7 and the charger. It has a few minor scratches but is very clean and quiet. I do use it a lot but will format it before I sell it.

Specs:

- Intel core 2 Duo Processor P7350
2.0 Ghz 1066 Mhz FSB, 3 MB L2 cache
- Nvidia GeForce G105M 512 MB VRAM
- 14" screen Acer CineCrystal LED LCD (Brand new, had to replace it)
-2 GB DDR3 Memory
-320 GB HDD
- 3 hour battery (Brand new as well)

Plays Blu Rays

Being that the current Aspire ships with a bigger (15.6") screen and significantly updated internals goes for $600, I'd say you'd be lucky to get $300 for it.

Start bidding at $100 or $150 maybe, with a $200 reserve.

Considering it's not a factory refurb, its specs are pretty outdated, and it has a fairly short battery life, I wouldn't expect you'd get more than $200. If you check ebay's used Acer listings, the only ones cracking $200 are ones with significantly better specs than these.

If you're doing an auction rather than buy-it-now, start the bidding at $0.99. There are zillions of laptops on eBay; the way to get some people to take notice of yours is to let them hope that they'll get a great deal. The price will take care of itself.

Take good pics and describe it honestly and in detail.

$50. Maybe $75, tops. I just tried to sell a four-year old Aspire 5100 to a buy/sell/trade shop, and they wouldn't even take it.

This is because you can get a new netbook, with equivalent specs, for $250-300. Really, there's very little incentive to buy these things used anymore. There's not even all that much incentive to repair them, as it's getting to the point that laptops become worth less than the sum of their parts in just a year or two.
