    Hey all,

    I'm thinking of selling my M15x to get a Samsung Series 7 Slate for digital art. I have my M11x R3 for home and eventually build a desktop.

    How much would I get for a 1.5 year old M15x r2?

    Specs:
    [Alienware M15X] - [Stealth Black] - [16GB DDR3 RAM 1333Mhz] - [Intel Core i7 @ 1.73Ghz - 2.9Ghz Turbo Boost] - [750GB HDD @ 7200] - [ATI (AMD) Mobility Radeon 5850]


    I'd most likely take out the 16GB RAM and replace it with 8GB, mainly for warranty concerns.
    It still has 1.5 years of NBD warranty.

    Fully working order, has a slight nick on the right hand speaker, about 3mm long, but that's it.

    Screen has slight scratches, but nothing too harsh.

    Battery still holds its charge.

    Things I have had done to it:
    Original HDD dies after a few weeks, had it warranty replaced.
    Palmrest rubber screen protectors came off, had palmrest replaced.
    Added 16GB RAM for my digital art/animation needs, but will replace it with 8GB RAM for sale.

    I've seen on ebay they sell for around $800 average. Thoughts?

    I'm not too entirely sure if I want to sell it, or if I'd be better to upgrade the CPU. However a slate would be quite nice for my illustration needs and I get along quite fine with my M11x hooked up to an external monitor.

    Cheers.

    I was told $850ish for mine with i7 720qm, 16gb ram, 240gb corsair force 3 ssd, and the 900p lcd... but mine has no warranty left. most people here don't seem to care about warranty anyways and AFAIK dell warranties aren't easily transferable and are non-transferable outside of its original country.

    Cheers man,

    I've got the 740qm and a 1080p screen.

    Warranty means stuff all in reality, but it does help at times.
    I can't be bothered with the hassle of moving warranty over all that much, but I'm happy to do it.
    I've read that international warranty transfer is possible, but a pain in some cases...

    Good to know what the ball park cost is.

    I'd want to keep my nameplate too, so I'd have to organise to get another one I guess.

    Thanks man. :)

    I don't know where he/she sold his/her M15x, but I have seen them floating around here on the marketplace and they're almost always on ebay, and more often than not they sell.
    You just get people wanting ~$1200+ sometimes which I think is way too much!

    Most are around ~$800... I just wanted to clarify here with the specialists. :)

    Good to know I may get a bit more with warranty.

    I had bought my M15x (i7-740/5850/6GB/900p screen/all docs & discs) in mint condition for an unreal $500 price off of C-List about 2 months ago. I think around $750-$850 for yours with the 1080p screen sounds reasonable (especially with it having warranty still!).
