    Was browsing the Alienware site to check out the new 18 when the Alienware 'trade up' program popped up. So, I put in my info and they offered $580 to trade it in. Is that all my M18X R1 is worth?

    These are my specs except with 16 gigs of ram now:

    To them, yes. But you could probably get quite a bit more private sale. Trade in programs are almost never worth it. You never get the used market value for the item.

    With those specs I would imagine at least $1000-1200.

    You should ask that in the NBR marketplace.
