The value of the computer at the current time, by their estimates.
You can, use the original cost of the computer depriciated by 10%
per year, adds in a national magazine, and possibly printouts of eBay
sales. The problem would be to convince them that the computer is
for personal use. 

If they thought it was not they would ask for a VAT number and assess
you what they felt like because a business gets it back anyway.

The only problem is that the average wage is now slightly over $1,000
per month and there are many families with a single working parent.
