  3. Is this Alienware worth $300?

Got a coworker trying to sell a laptop. I dunno the model, but I got the specs.


2GB RAM

Intel [R] Pentium[R] 2.26gb processor

Geforce 6800 GPU



It sounds pretty crappy and I'm FAIRLY sure it's not worth it, but I wanted to make sure before I potentially passed on a deal.

Alienware is usually junk, I wouldn't bother wasting my time with it.

If you need a cheap laptop it wouldn't be bad but don't expect it to play anything recent at all.

That's worth almost nothing these days. Pass it up and laugh at him for asking that much.

Well, she just got it from someone who left for the military and didn't want to take it with them, she doesn't know anything about computers.

She said she could probably be talked down to 200, but I don't think I have any use for it if it can't even play games like Bastion and Gunpoint.

Do not buy!!!! She is a scammer. Geforce 6800 can't even play 1080p videos or stream 1080p videos without lagging!!!

Actually I'm pretty sure it can play Bastion, but yeah pass on it.
