Right now, I'm fed up with my laptop. The battery life is laughable, I can't get the APM to work at all, so I never know how long I have until it dies, it gets really hot really fast, and I can only run Red Hat or Mandrake on it.

Does anyone know where I can trade this thing in for a different model? I've been looking at the iBook, and I just need to get rid of this piece of junk before I can afford one.

Please, don't suggest eBay. There's no way I can get even a decent price for this thing on there. The other auction sites are the same way.

If it runs Windows you might think about giving it to a school organization or a boys and girls club or something. There are a lot of places like that which will take old computers. As far as selling them, you might be best off with the auction sites. I suppose it all depends on the age of the hardware.
