I would not care about the licenses...I would love to have the laptop..AND 
the value would include NOT having that software..as it is for educational 
purposes....

That is my humble opinion.....

And I am still interested!  lol!

I was wondering about how the licenses would work. I suspect
that the office suite wouldn't work after college. I wasn't
sure about the operating system.

I talked to a guy today. He said, in the past they were on
lease, and were turned back in. This past year, they opened
it to staff to purchase them, and the students can buy their
old one rather than turn it in - for the value at that
time - whatever that is. They are talking about making them
available to the community. He's going to get me more
information, and see if I could buy one. If not, I'll wait 2
years and buy my daughter's old one. Last years had a 40 gb
hard drive, 512 ram, Centrino processor - xpPro -

So - how do you find out the fair market value of a 2 year
old laptop? I figure, when she gets hers, I can look it up
to figure out what it would have cost for us to purchase it.

Hi Chris
If that don't work, you might have your daughter (student)
check on it. The
school may be more inclined to sell to students

Also there may be a thing with the programs on the puter
that they are
licensed to students ONLY.

I can pick up (for instance) XP PRO at school for $10, BUT
it is licensed
for student use and only while one is a student. If one
stops being a
student, by the URLA, the person can no longer use that XP
PRO.

Suggest you have your daughter check out the license
agreement for the
software on the puter with the school.

Life is what happens in between plans.
