    Fully specced.

    service code : DL75P12

    18.4” 1080p
    I7- 4940XM
    32GB memory
    1TB quad play raid SSDs (dvd slot delete)
    Dual 880M 8GB SLI
    Windows 7 professional (key still on bottom)
    original box.

    Still close to factory condition I just put 2 games I play on it. Was considering sale because I just don’t use it as I built a new desktop at home that I’ve been using for what I need. Looking to get the kids 2 new iPads for Xmas so was going to use the funds there . Starts and runs like new. No battery error although it doesn’t hold much charge at all but will stay running for a bit.

    on eBay in this spec I know I see some inflated prices from sellers but wondering what a fair price would be to someone here.
    Pics are beside my old 14.
    Tia !

    It's a tough one, I think with the XM processor you could ask for a little more but it depends on the market over there and what else is available. Prices for the 18" machines don't look like going down.
    You'd probably get the best return by parting it out but that can take a while.

    The fact it is the most spec'd out model right behind the last gasp 980m SLI model means you can command a decent price for it.

    If you're using eBay to sell, list it for ~$1500.00 and it will sell close to that or you will get offers over $1k.

    If you're trying to sell it on the boards, expect to take a lot less.

    Parting it out, you're looking at (assuming you sell on eBay):

    ~225/ea for the GPUs
    ~200 for the CPU
    ~80 for the memory
    SSDs depend on models
    ~$400-500 for the barebones Alienware 18

    On the boards, again, expect to take a lot less.

    i think you read my mind there. I’m aware as you said the market is different here vs eBay etc. i may try it there first high, and then consider listing here for a price I’d be happy with.
    Thanks everyone for the input

    Take into account ebay fees, the hassle and how much is YOUR time worth. The forums here are almost dead for buying selling laptops and parts unless you practically give it away.
