Well first of all you are doing the right thing. I always recommend starting out by selling things around the house to get some experience. As for computer knowledge, you don't really need that much to work on eBay. The platform is web based and it has an HTML editor so you really just have to follow the instructions. I always recommend getting a high speed interconnection like DSL or cable because you don't want to spend forever waiting for pages to download. Once you start selling on eBay you will find that time really is money and you want to do everything you can to save time.
If you do decide to upgrade to a new computer you might want to look at the new Apple computers. They are reliable and fast and much easier to use than a PC and the new Macs can run any of the PC based programs now. We have both Macs and PCs and find ourselves gravitating to the Mac more and more.
Good luck on eBay

Have you gone through the beginning steps for the first week? How did they work?
1. Register your eBay Account and sign up for a PayPal business account.
2. Buy something on eBay for experience
etc. See page 27 of the book.
Personally, I am still on steps (1) and (2) but that's okay because I have the book and two more weeks.
How about you?

I have to say I am learning a lot from the book-even HTML, but as I keep reading there is so much more to master.
