After buying my totally awesome new computer which I love very much, I still have my older computer. And I would really like to sell it, as I need the money, but don't need the computer. I don't want to sell it on eBay, as I usually would, because it has quirks. And I would just feel bad selling it to somebody I didn't know, and having them receive a computer that does things I can't predict. I'd rather be able to explain it thoroughly, and then even be there to help the buyer if anything went wrong after purchase. So I've offered it to everybody I could think of, but nobody seems to need one. Then I thought of you guys! So, to explain the machine itself:
Windows XP Home SP3
100GB hard drive
Intel Pentium M Processor 1.73GHz
New CD/DVD drive
Memory Card reader
4 USB ports
Internal modem (for those of us who still occasionally need them, like me)
Decent battery for its age...about an hour and a half (same as the new one I've got...bummer)
External monitor port
Other ports I've never used, so I don't know what they are
Now for the quirks. The reason I replaced it is because the USB ports are fritzing and I'd filled up the hard drive. I really need those USB ports, and I really need that space. Other people may not. Now...the USB ports work, but they only work temporarily. They may work a couple times, and then one has to restart the computer to use them again. The computer occasionally freezes, but this is easily fixed by forcefully tapping on the casing near the keyboard. Just like the Falcon.
Honestly, though, the tapping never fails to bring it out of a freeze. I attribute this to a short somewhere in the inner workings of the computer. No worries, though, because the machine has been doing this behavior for a long time, no change. So I can assure you it's not because it's going to die tomorrow. And if it does, I'll give you a full refund.
Other than that, it works beautifully. My mom loves it for just surfing the internet and doing her eBay business. She already has a computer, but prefers this one since it's a laptop. She carries it all over the house. But I really need to sell it. Oh, and it weighs about 6-7 pounds, which really isn't that bad. I never had a problem carrying it around.
So, here are some pictures of my beloved machine (I was very sad to replace it):

BTW, the computer is not curved, despite appearances. Just a trick of the camera.
I will completely format the computer for the new owner and reinstall a clean version of XP Home. That way you'll get it completely ready to go. So, if anybody's interested, just lemme know!
Oh, ha, I forgot to say how much I was asking: $200.
