Samsung or LG ( dun remember which but I'll check ) 22x DVD +/- RW DL burner
I figure this machine is worth around $475 -$490 the way it is.
What I want to trade for:
I'm mainly looking for something with HD video playback capabilities but the system will also be used for CoD4, Bioshock, Dark Void and other similar not so demanding games at 1440x900 on low - medium detail. The gaming ability is no where near as important as the movie playback so even an Nvidia Ion system would be fine.
Just about any dual-core system with at least 2gb ram and the ability to run 1080p content is good for me so this means even if you have a *gulp* Pentium-D volcano machine you want to upgrade from I'll take pretty much anything that puts cash in my pocket and still lets me watch my movies. Honestly I'd love a Dell C521 ( or similar Dell low profile unit ) or even an HP SlimLine.
I would prefer a local trade in ILLINOIS.
