    That brings back memories, I used to run the UK service department for these Gateways until they pulled back out of the market.

    Thanks for the review.

    I also have another Gateway Tower which I am deciding whether to sell or recycle. It is a Pro SP 4-1400 (Listed by Belarc Advisor as E-4600), 1.40 GHz Pentium 4 Processor, 8 kb primary memory, 250 GB secondary memory, 768 MB Ram, _NEC NR-7700A [CD-ROM drive], LG CD-ROM CRD-8483B R/W, 3.5" [Floppy drive], IOMEGA ZIP 250 [Hard drive]. Very good to Excellent Condition. Hard Drive has gone bad.

    Saw SP4 - 1500 for sale on EBay for $315.10

    Opinion?

    My opinion is that whoever is trying to sell one of those things for $315 must be on some very, very powerful drugs. Nobody is going to buy it at that price. Nobody is going to buy it at half, or even a quarter of that price. They're too slow to be useful, but too new to be retro. They may get a bit more attention in a few years just due to the fact that they use RDRAM and the unusual (and short lived) Socket 423, but at this point, they're $20 machines, at best. The memory is worth saving, the Zip drive could be handy, and maybe the optical drives if you happen to need some. The rest of it... not so much.

    $315! I agree, who knows what they're on... I can see someone who needs it paying $20-$30 for the RAM, and maybe $5-$10 for the Zip drive. The rest of the machine probably isn't worth that much. To illustrate, about a year ago I picked up a Dell Dimension at a church garage sale with a 1.6 GHz Pentium 4, 1 CD drive, 512 MB RAM, a floppy drive and a broken HDD. I only payed $2.
