Is it possible to successfully sell a laptop online?

I have been trying now for over a month to sell my laptop online. I've only used it for a little over a year so it is like new. I've tried various online sites that buy used notebooks but they always want to buy it for a tiny fraction of the price I paid.

So I turned to sites like Craigslist, Ebay, and Amazon, but so far all I've gotten is about 10 inquiries from scammers (god, they are everywhere and so irritating!)

So my question is this; has anyone sold their used laptop online successfully and for a fair price (at least half of what you paid for it)?

    Try selling it on in your local area. Better chance of selling it there. Browse ads to get a clue what used laptops are going for and price yours accordingly. Used laptops don't go for much.

    Try LiveSimon at for free auctions or classifieds.

    Or if you would prefer to sell it locally and place an ad without all the registering, try LiveSimon Posts at

    eBay has a lot of fees, and craigslist has a lot of spam.
