    It's a WinVista era machine about 11-12 years old probably with only 2GB DDR2 RAM and a sluggish CPU. You might get $100 if it still boots WinVista or maybe $150 with Win7. Easily upgrades to 4GB RAM and a much faster SSD drive. It'll probably run Win10 OK and comfortably dual boot with LinuxMint Cinnamon GUI which can be set up with nearly the same look, feel and function of Windows only faster and handles all the latest Office apps with LibreOffice and the latest FireFox browsers.

    Use it as a backup for personal files in case your brand new PC chokes. Or gift it to a friend, family member or a library.  Jack E/NJ

    Lately I've gifted all my laptops of that era to families that didn't have online access for their children to do online schooling. Surprisingly they pretty much all had internet (likely provided free by the landlord) but had only phones, not laptops. I think I've gotten rid of four or five Vista and early W7 laptops that way since the pandemic began.
