Given that the majority of that system's hardware and software components cost more than £35 individually, I assume that was a typo.

It's no typo I have about 46 of them to dispose of. (non profit recycling)

You would need to collect or arrange a carrier.

To the person who left a reputation comment of "This is a scam if ever I saw one" I have now given 22 of these away to families that have no other way to puchase a computer. the rest were sold at £35 to help cover recycling costs of the many many older machines that I had to dispose of. I've got another 200 coming soon a bit more modern I hope.

Seems real enough to me.
The local school systems and some bigger business here often run an add in the paper selling or usually just giving away similar computers when they get major technology system upgrades. It make sense to me that other places in the world would do it as well.
It keeps them out or the landfill and does allow the lower income and more resourceful people to get basic systems on the cheap for what ever purposes they can still use them for.

I think its nice your doing it.

Why do you ask, since you are the seller? Advertisements aren't usually allowed, but guess it's okay in the UK. How much is 35.0 GBP in American?

I use an OEM version of windows (fully Licensed) and the serial number from the XP sticker then each machine is internet activated.

Hi rmn,
they look cheap to me, I buy Dell PC's from a local auction in Bolton, Lancs, and they are about 30 - 40 GBP for a P4 with a COA for windows XP.

Do yours have the COA for office? if so, that's a great price, and it's a great thing you are doing there.
(if there's no COA for office, be careful as M\$ are a bit aggressive these days).

Jim
