Hello,

That computer has decent specs. I would say at least 600$.

600$, are you mad ?

I paid 2000$ for it just a few months ago, your estimate is clearly a lowball.
I have posted the same question on other forums aswell to get many different opinions and they all tell me that I could get around 1500$ for it.

Did you pay attention to what I said? I said 600 MINNIMUM.

First you said its 7 months old, now your saying you paid 2000$ for it just a few months ago? Are you mad? I wouldnt pay 2000 for what you got ("a few months ago").

BTW I wouldn't pay 1500$ for that laptop. First the warranty is probably almost gone, plus it's been "used".

Well sell it for whatever you think you can get it for, and what you think it's worth.

$600 is far too little, but I also believe that $1500 will not sell (you're still more than welcome to try).
Partially because this model is newer and better:
MSI G Series GT600NC-004US ($1500)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The price is automatically lower because your laptop is used and the parts are from the last generation of hardware.

For your laptop a reasonable list price is $1200, but a cheapskate wouldn't spend more than $1000.

BTW doing a price check on that laptop yields the highest price of 1500 for newer components.

So I highly doubt you could get 1500$ for it, unless you find a real sucker.

Selling that laptop anywhere between 1000-1200 would probably be acceptable. Depends on who you can get to purchase it.

Thanks, atleast somebody actually has a head on there shoulder unlike Mr Chainzsaw over there.

The laptop you mentioned is better in terms of video card and cpu, but it lacks a Bluray RW drive and only has 12GB ram compared to mine which has 16. It also still has 17months left on the warranty period of 2 years.

I'll try @ 1300 and see what happens. The reason I paid 2000$ for it is because I'm in Canada and we all know stuff here sells for way more than the US MSRP.

Some warranties are not transferable to the new owner, just a heads up.

Thanks for the heads up. Just read through the warranties fine print and it appears that it cannot be transferred. Probably knocks down the value abbit too.

Idiotic? Your idiotic for warping what I said out of context. You quite the tool aren't you. You get offended for telling you a minnimum price for the laptop? I think you need some anger management and some counseling.

So what really made you go nuts on me? Is it my username? Seriously what was it that set you off to go crazy? I really want to know.

One more thing - you said I lost all credibility with you - don't flatter yourself.

I don't take your opinion at all.

BTW I did post another message saying you could probably get 1000-1200. Your just ignorant. But that's ok, because i'm sure my opinion of you doesn't matter.

You talk and act like a 16 year old - grow up. But i'm sure however you act is completely normal for where you come from. That's totally fine, as ignorant people run rampent in life.

Good luck bruno!

Alien, that was just dumb bashing Chainzsaw when he clearly said (600 AT LEAST) AT LEAST is the keyword honey. 1200 would be the most. 1300, you gotta find a sucker for it.
