For Sale – Dell XPS 8500 – Base Unit & Keyboard

Hi All,

I have for sale my Dell XPS 8500. Until February this was my main PC and I used it for gaming, it ran PUBG etc quite easily. Since February I have bought another rig and sold the graphics card that was in this machine – so you would need a new graphics card if you wanted it for gaming. I was going to use it as a render rig, but have decided to sell it instead. It’s a great machine and the only reason I’m selling it is to upgrade to something more modern and part of the case has changed colour in the sun.

Specification is as follows – few upgrades to standard:

Dell XPS 8500
i7-3770 CPU @ 3.4GHz (not overclocked, never have)
12GB RAM (think it’s 2 x 4GB and 2 x 2GB but can check for anyone interested)
Upgraded PSU – CX500 Corsair
256GB SSD (ADATA) – 223GB usable – I have only used this drive for installing Windows 10 – it came out of the new PC.
Windows 7 serial key for Home Premium – currently it has installed a Windows 10 trial, I do not have discs for Windows 7.
Wifi Chipset

Base unit, power supply and keyboard only.

I’m looking for £200 for this, but open to offers – delivery is included in the price.

Can add more images if needed, any questions just ask.

For Sale – Macbook Pro 2009 2.53Ghz, 8GB, 250SSD and 9400M £150

Have had this since new but it has had very little use the last number of years. It has been upgraded to 8gb ram and ssd so it is still a great little machine. Outside of body has a number fine scores, but considering its age i’d say well below average. Keyboard and track pad are in excellent condition. Screen is unmarked but I have noticed a few dead pixels on the screen (highlighted in pics)


Battery cycle is showing as 300 and state as Normal. The charger can be a bit picky sometimes, but has been working fine when i’ve powered it up the last number of weeks however so ive priced this to factor in a decent charger from amazon (around £20) should you end up needing one.
Currently on El Capitan (the max it can officially support) but it can run the latest OSX Catalina through a patched loader.

Was originally going to trade this in at cex but as it wasnt the original apple hd they wouldnt take it, so it has sat unused again for the past number of months

I may also put this on ebay today as it is £1 final value fees

£150 delivered or 140 collected

For Sale – Seagate Barracuda 2TB mechanical drive.

Tony, this drive has just arrived, however upon opening it I have immediately discovered it is damaged.

I have not attempted to attach this to my pc yet so I have not confirmed if it’s operational or not.

I cannot accept it in this condition, if this is not how it was sent you will need to make a claim against the courier.

I am going to have to return this to you.
