I would like to sell my current laptop for some money to buy parts for a custom build. However i wan't your alls opinion.

Lenovo Ideapad G780
17.3" Screen
6GB ram
750GB HDD (no secondary)
Intel Core i7-3520M 2.90GHz
DVD R and CD RW (listed on side of cd drive)
integrated: Intel HD Graphics 4000 and Nvidia Geforce GT 630m
Has bluetooth, and HDMI slot, and a webcam/microphone
Battery condition is good and screen condition is excellent. one scratch next to trackpad about 3mm length (really un noticable)
Keyboard (a little dirty underneath, will clean to best of my ability) trackpad perfect condition, usb ports (2x 2.0 and 2x 3.0) good besides 1 being a little loose, still works fine.
sound card is broken, both headphone and microphone jack do not work. I can supply a usb to headphone/microphone device
Warranty has expired
No codes on the bottom of the computer have been used
Has windows 7 64-bit system

Like i said im selling this for hopefully 500-600 so i will only have to gather $400 to finish off the cost of the rest of the items needed. thank you for your feedback
This was a $900 computer i got on Newegg.com for $700 during a christmas sale of 2012

edit:: I forgot to mention that there is a razer logo sticker on the top, probably able to be removed without any substance being left behind

  1. Pictures would help, because the amount of wear on the system is important.

    If it has little wear that is noticeable, and no bad scratches and the like on it, I could see it going for $600-$700 probably without too much trouble. The CPU is fast and the graphics are pretty good also.

    I wouldn't think $550 should be hard to get if it has a bit of wear but still in good condition. Best to probably list it on Ebay at around $300 and see where it goes. A couple guys get in a bidding war for it and it could go bigger.
  2. Hey, double check the hardware in it.

    This website says that the hard drive and the CPU are smaller in it. You might of got a special version of it though.

    I do have a special version, the specs i put were double checked and this wasn't bought directly from lenovo's website. thanks for doing some more research into it for a more accurate price though
  4. The recently sold auctions on FleBay have Lenovo Ideapad G780 laptop with Core i7 processors going for $799 and up, but they have slightly better specs (RAM, HDD) than Your machine, and they are new. I would guess that Yours would sell for $500-$600.
  5. Yea I checked the Lenovo website and it actually has this laptop selling with three different types of CPUs, an i5 and two types of i7. Yours is the middle ranged one, which has a dual core i7 processor but with a much higher clock speed than others.

    I still think $600-700 probably is the closest bet assuming fairly light wear.
