The laptop is in pretty good shape for its age, I bought it in 04. Cosmetically i'd say its a 8/10 and performance wise a 9.5/10 (see below for the reason). Only reason im selling is I just built a nice computer and dont use this anymore.
It has a small crack in the plastic around the screen on the side. its like .5" big.
You can see where my palm rest next to the mouse. It like wore away the silver paint.
The only really bad thing: The power jack needs to be replaced. Its a common problem with these laptops. You have to wiggle the power cable for it to power on. A new jack is about $10 shipped on ebay. If you're good with sodering and stuff like that you can fix it for only $10. Dell has great instructions on they website on how to take the laptop apart to get to the mobo and fix the jack.
