    I’m looking to sell my P170EM (see specs in signature). From what I gather it looks like parting it out is the way to go. The 980m has the Prema bios. Two things:
    1. If I sell this on eBay, will I need to flash the 980m with a regular non-prema vbios? I’m concerned the buyer won’t be able to use it unless they have a motherboard with a Prema bios, as I believe this was a prerequisite for the card to work, at least on the P170EM.
    2. Is my 980m worth anything additional due to the Prema vbios? Looks like regular 980m goes for about $250.

    Or would it be worth putting the whole laptop for sale? Thinking maybe I could get $400 or more?

    People sell components or laptops with Prema BIOS all the time, no issue there.

    Issue is sharing with people over the internet, that would be against Prema's desire (looking at you Eurocom)
