Seeing as the person who bought it payed over 3K for it, 850 isn't a bad price at all. The only thing I don't like about it is the graphics card. That's only a problem though if you want to game. It's got a good CPU, a good amount of RAM and a Blu-ray drive. I don't think you will find that in the sub 1K category. As long as the unit being sold to you is in good condition, it's not a bad deal.
