In the UK - PCWorld is offering 'Up to £100' for your old Laptop to use against buying a new laptop with Windows 7

I was wondering if anyone actually been there to get their laptop valued - & if so how much were they offered & what was the (old) laptop specs. I've got a very old one lying around somewhere & curious if it was actually worth anything (I think it's a Pentium 3)

If anyone has done this - can they post here the old laptop specs

Make: e.g. Samsung
Model: e.g n110
Processor: e.g Intel Atom N270
HDD size: e.g. 160Gb
Memory installed: e.g. 1Gb
Operating system: Xp Pro

(& anything else you can think of) followed by

PCWorld offered: £??.??

Spambot anyone? Reported.

On topic, PC world taking old laptops? That's interesting - I have a few old laptops that I wouldn't mind trading in for a newer model.
EDIT: maybe it can help me get an ASUS Transformer Prime when it comes out!

    It was easy to bypass some of the restrictions, as one of the admins left a registry key in the administrative shares drive, which allowed me to get around the blocking of some sites.
