I want to sell my laptop

.
Secondhand, going cheap - I think 10,000 RM would be reasonable. That's about USD 3,000. Its an Acer Aspire-5052ANWXMI.

After all, considering the price new, I think that would be reasonable, don't you?

A government college in Penang bought two units of the same brand of laptop – Acer Aspire-5052ANWXMI, at a whopping price of RM 84,640, said the Auditor-General’s Report.

Sigh. I wish they would let me do their shopping for them. I could make SO much money...

Isn't that typical of governments everywhere, they pay through the nose for things which the rest of us can buy much cheaper. I remember the prison service here when they first went in for computers went to a department store, not a computer store, for their systems.

And didn't the Pentagon once pay a fortune for toilet seats or some such?

What? That's more than $20,000.

That must be some "kickbacks" going on there behind the scenes.

Wow, you can buy two cars with that amount of money!!!

Corruption knows no bounds.
