    You should begin by listing it costing more than what other people are asking. Do that if you are confident you marketed it will as I previously advised (Mention the big screen and fact it has ATI Graphics in your title, and if you upgrade to Windows 10 mention Win 10 in the title).

    If you list the laptop as an auction on eBay it is free to do that and if it does not sell you will not pay anything, so I try to list things initially as auction to see how they do. In the UK if you list something buy it now on eBay I believe it is 50p to do that which mightn't sound like much but there is no need, list as auction instead.

    If the laptop is not getting much interested, i.e. a steady stream of new views or has no watchers after say 2 weeks you can always drop the price down.

    I operate from the perspective of selling to buyers in the UK but am confident marketed correctly your laptop will be sellable for more than $40... as you found yourself one sold in Denmark for 155 on Shpock so clearly things about that laptop made it attractive even at the price point.

    Ah okay, how come 3D graphics is irrelevant these days ?
    Because this isn't 1984 anymore...

    I dont know that much about GPU's
    Yep.

    onboard and dedicated


    ...are the same thing.

    If you have dedicated graphics, it means you have a dedicated "onboard" GPU. The other being the GPU built INSIDE the CPU (the main processor unit - Central Processing Unit)

    I will mention the 17 inch screen and the GPU as the first things and then the rest after, like CPU, RAM, Windows and i think thats everything worth mentioning right ?

    and im gonna sell it in Denmark aswell, so im gonna use something called dba.dk and guloggratis.dk, since i prefer people picking up, instead of me sending, but yeah i guess if i put at maybe 200 GBP and it doesnt sell within the first 14-30 days i could put down with like 50 GPB ? I will obviously put in in DKK after converting from GPB though and yeah i hope to get around maximum price, but as long as it sells for more than 40 USD im happy.

    It'll probably only sell for about 42 GPB. I base that on the last one I saw on the U.S. eBay website. And there was only one listed. The rest were parts.

    In my opinion, Acer is not a particularly very good brand of computer or has good resale value. Dell on the other hand would be, and there are loads and loads on the U.S. eBay website. It's where I always bought my laptops as well. To this day I have yet to buy a brand new laptop fresh from the factory. And here I used to get the Dell product catalogs in the mail. This was an old but very popular Dell TV commercial here in the states. LOL! Now there's an Internet meme: "Dude, you're getting Adele!" LOL! I wouldn't mind Adele singing at my future wedding or something. LOL

    Anyway, usually parting a computer out is more profitable. But laptops are A) not easy to pry apart for the layman, and B) it's an Acer and C) expect the parts not to sell for months at a time.

    Here in the U.S. we have loads of personal for sale Ad abilities. There's a popular website called Craigslist and there are Facebook buy/sell groups. If your country has a similar Craigslist or if you have Facebook (I don't) find a buy/sell group in your area.

    Again, I don't know if the market is different in Denmark, but expect around 42 GPB if you ask me. The laptop is quite old you know...

    Tip: If you do sell privately using Facebook or what ever, make sure you conduct the trade in a public area like a grocery store parking lot. Also note this: In the U.S. we have counterfeit ink pens that can check if bills are counterfeit. You just mark an end of the bill and the color will tell you (At least for a certain percentage of counterfeit currency). If you have a similar pen in Denmark then buy one and use it. I don't know about your currency, but I suppose if you guys deploy holographics that would be harder to counterfeit. I say this because many people here in the U.S. have been ripped off with counterfeit money buying from personal Ads like Facebook and Craigslist. (Yeah, the U.S. has yet to use holographics. I don't know why. Perhaps it's the cost).

    Edit- Never mind, we do. Redesigned $100 bill with 3-D strip, hologram debuts today

    I think now they do this for the $20 as well.

    Sad but I don't carry cash hardly anymore so wasn't sure. Sign of the times...

    Hmm.. Okay.. I mean as long as i get minimum that im happy. Isnt Asus like the most popular pc brand ?

    yeah okay i thought it would be cheaper buying parts, people always recommend me to buy parts myself and build my own pc, because they say its cheaper ?

    we have Facebook groups and marketplace in Denmark aswell, i used to sell gold in there and i know about craigslist, but i dont know if people actually use it in Denmark. But dba.dk is like the most popular selling platform in Denmark, ive sold so much stuff in there.

    Yeah its a very old laptop, so i dont expect to much.

    i know there is counterfeit money in Denmark, but i dont think its a huge problem here, i dont see alot of people talking about it, but i do see that sometimes people working in stores checking with those pens that you are talking about.
