Hey! Not sure if I'm posting in the right section... anybody has any ideas how much can I ask for this laptop and where/what is the best way to try and sell it?

I bought it this August from PC Specialist co uk Shop, but I'm now buying a powerful PC and I got a second laptop too, so I don't really need two laptops and a PC. Thanks for any tips!

Oh, and I paid £1100 for it.

Is the warranty transferable?

If yes, then maybe £1000, but that is optimistic.

If no, then maybe £900, again that is optimistic.

I'm not in the UK so I don't know of any places to sell it other than eBay. You can also try Amazon.

I recommend removing all passwords. That includes the BIOS password and Hard Drive password if you have set them up in the BIOS. Otherwise you are going to have a really pissed off buyer.

My suggestion is to search for your laptop in used condition on e-bay.
Then filter by completed auctions and you will see in green what similar laptops actually sold for.

There are a number of places online where you can sell your used or broken laptop. However, based on the condition and brand new nature of your laptop, your best option will probably either be ebay or craigslist.

Remember to run a full clean / scan to eliminate your personal or confidential data. More information on that can be found here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/84984-35-selling-lapt...
