  1. Best answer
    $2800 brand new? Well sadly PC parts in particular lose a crap ton of their value the moment they are opened/first turned on. I'd say as long as its in great shape you could probably get about half of your money back. ~6 months old, close to $300 in SSDs (Refurbed Price) not to mention 16 GB of ram coupled with Bigfoot Network card. I'd say to the right buyer $1500 would be doable.
  2. minus 30% just for opening the box
    minus X months of depreciation.

    = $980 (realistic) to $1400 (max).

    It's 18 months old... and it's a laptop.

    @fatboy that was the exact price i was leaning towards thanks for the reassurance
  4. I said $1500 for the right person. So someone who really needs a portable gaming capable machine. Otherwise you'd be looking at probably 1200ish.
