    Maybe his gf asked him to lose weight so he decided to take that as getting a smaller laptop. It's not always about performance, sometimes bigger is not always better, she said while looking back.

    I would say somewhere in the $1600 range depending on where you sell it. Enjoy the 15, I think I will roll with my 17 for a bit longer myself :)

    You can part it out for more than that. The 3D screen assembly itself is worth about $300 on eBay.

    Your prices always seem to be too low - anywhere from 10% to 30% too low. Have you seen eBay lately? These systems are actually selling for more than $1600, and are listed for around $2400. I would hate to have you help me sell my car, lol. :D

    This forum is a bad place to ask for advice because 9/10 people here are on the "hype train" awaiting new products. And because of this, personal views or opinions of older components are "junk" while in reality they are not. You have to look at actual sales of these products to give an accurate price.

    He didn't ask what you would pay. He asked what it's worth. :thumbsup:

    lol wow, sorry if I offended haha, it is worth $4000 then, if you have 10 years of warranty it is worth $8000+ :D

    This section has gotten crazy, if people want facts go on ebay and check sold listings, it takes maybe a minute at best. But then again if sold on this forum you will never get the prices you see on ebay. I wont give my input anymore.

    If a laptop sells on ebay for $2,400, the seller only would get about $2,088 after fees. eBay takes a lot for fees not to mention paypal also takes out money as well when you sell on ebay.

    Here you can sell that same laptop at $2,150 and still make about the same amount as selling on ebay for $2,400.

    Also there are a lot more people on ebay than there are here, so the market is bigger. People here are more knowledgeable on the products selling as well.

    I think the $1,600 price is about right.

    I didn't say the laptop sells for $2400. I said they're listed for $2400, and sell for more than $1600. And the fee amount is irrelevant to discussion because the buyer is paying $1600 or $2400 either way. So, the laptops are selling for $1600 or $2400.

    No offense taken. I was just sharing information. But saying something with ten years of warranty is equal to $8000 is a bit ridiculous and childish, so to speak. You can't even purchase that much warranty, and doing so would make absolutely no sense whatsoever. There are a lot of things to consider when purchasing warranty. Only a certain amount makes sense.



    EDIT: @CSHawk: You should be listing this for $1900 or best offer and accept $1600 after a while if nobody bites.
