I've run some numbers and did a bit of looking around. So long as this thing comes with a LEGAL version of XP Pro or MCE (ask to look at the sticker), its worth $1900, otherwise you could knock a good $250 off the price tag.

Alright so XP included for "demo" purposes means that it obviously isn't genuine, so you reckon i should offer 1650 for it then?

Lets put it this way: You could build a PC with the exact same specs for $1650 (shipping included).
