I'm pondering it. But, there's one on E-bay(go figure? Isn't there always one on E-bay), for $1050. Same as yours, same options.
You might be money ahead by just keeping it.
BTW, I had an Area 51M with the 17" screen, and all the high end options(cost over $5000), and the motherboard died after 16 months, and Alienware just gave me the finger. So, its sitting in a box, dead. So, I'm a little hesitant about buying another one, but I need a gaming laptop for my travels. So, let me know what the lowest you'd be willing to go.
You should note that there is still 10 hours left in that auction, 34 total bidders so far. Most bidding wars occur in the last hour or so (if not less). I would fully expect that laptop to get up to at least
$1500 (if not higher) before that auction is closed.
