We have some bits from our old desk top PC for sale. 

The motherboard packed up, and we kept the hard drive to use as a smal external hard drive.

We are open to all offers (over a six-pack but not Lion Red please!) for what is left.  We honestly have no idea what the bits are worth, if anything, except for maybe the DVD writer which wasnt all that old really.  The parts are in Northland and we'd expect who ever wants them to pick them up.  We should also have most of the software around, but I'd have to rummage.

Keyboard - letters are worn off in places, replaced by lovely sticky labels
Mouse - optical, not wireless
Monitor - CRT I think its called, big, bulky thing but with a flat screen not a really old curved one
PC Box - blown motherboard, no hard drive, still has DVD writer attached
DVD writer - Sony DRU-800A
Printer - Lexmark X1150 printer / copier / scanner.  works ok but cant guarantee it, needs new ink cartidges.

Please post or PM if you are interested in any of this.  We'd rather give it away if someone can use it than put it in land fill.

I would love the DVD writer please. It would get a lot of use at the home I send it to...

Is this for your college display board?  But the DVD writer isnt dead.  Although it might be if I have to try and get it out of the box.  Did you want it dead or alive?  Or do you have another home for it?

No this is for a working unit for someone who has never had one...

I'll take the dvd player out  and get a quote for postage.  Will be in touch sometime soon (might be a few days though...)

All bits still available.  Tony, I sent you a PM about the dvd burner but assume you either didnt get it or no longer want the dvd burner.
