How much is this laptop worth in todays market?

I bought this laptop a couple of years ago for $1600 and was wondering how much the price has changed. Here's the specs:

Model: HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Service Pack 1

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 460 @ 2.53GHz, Socket 989 rPGA, Max CPU Speed: 2533MHz

Memory: DDR3 [PC3-10600], Installed: 8192 MBytes, Max: 8192 MBytes

Video: Integrated Graphics Controller && ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650

Hard drive: SAMSUNG HM640JJ 640.1 GB 7200 RPM

Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard 144B, version 65.2E

Battery: Designed capacity: 55080 mWh, Current capacity: 44928 mWh @ 100% ) (That's about 10-20% wear level I think?)


I'm not looking for an exact, i'm looking for an estimate. Not sure if this is the place to ask, but thanks in advance.

    Probably close to 500-600$. The only thing saving that computer from less than 500$ is the graphics card since thats a 5650.

    Would adding it has a 17.3 inch screen and Blueray raise the value any? If so, how much?
  3. Maybe another 100$ depending on the screen's resolution. 1080p is always better than 1600x900 for example.
