    for me is science fiction, but I also try to save money to see if I can too. My problem is that I do not know what to do with my GT80S, realizing that is not the notebook I had in mind and I wanted. I will never sell it to help me in the purchase of this amazing Acer.

    That looks....AMAZING!
    After this Fiasco and the Upgrade Premium out the door, this laptop is worth 1800 if you are lucky, becuase think about it really

    980SLI= $800

    BGA Soldered CPU= Nothing

    16GB DDR4 2400= $80

    Mechanical Keyboard = $80

    Note Book Portability and Power= $840

    The real Selling Forte of this laptop was Upgrade Ability ($3000 Plus!)

    Without it I would have never bought it. MSI better give a darn good trade in.

    if you got an offer of 2800, I'd take it to be honest... for 3k people can almost get a new gen laptop....

    When selling something unfortunately we cant rely on how much we paid and try to make our money back... we have to take into consideration that people will prefer to buy a newer generation item since they are shelling out good cash. Whoever sells one of these laptops must either sell it to somone not fully aware of the laptop scene or be ready for a hefty loss. Especially when talking about sums above 2000$. Like really who would give 2 grand for old hardware.. Im also speaking about myself, unfortunately we are all in the same boat.

    Well then you'd better take that offer, before the fool realizes an SLI 1070 gt83 is a way better deal. It's probably too late though.

    You're dreaming if you expect $3k.

    if that's the case then I'm going to rely on this trade in, I have no other choice. I have 0 confidence that MSI will cook up something amazing for us also. This all sucks, ill never invest in something like this again. Paid a nice premium to have drop in parts; was planning on keeping this thing for 3 years with upgrades.

    i trade commodities to make a living. believe me when i say that any computer you buy is a bad investment (unless you are buying a value computer to support your education, in which case its simply an educational expense, like textbooks) . worst investments you can make in usa, are computer or buying a new car.
    you want to make a good investment, buy some SPY calls instead. you'll then be able to take SOME of the profits in a few months and use them to buy that computer you wanted, and you will still have profits left over....

    Ouch... :(

    I was trying to sell my SLI 980m GT80 locally for $1500, and that's with 2TB of SSDs in the m.2 slots included and I got no takers. Lot's of sub $1k offers.

    I think I'm going to have to go with whatever this trade-in program gives me.
