This is the 4th time relisting it. Even put up a youtube video showing how it looks.
should I lower the price? thanks for any advice.

It's still a very capable machine, but your price is a bit high for what the market will support. Gaming laptops are the worst out of all computers in holding their value, and computers in general don't hold value well to begin with. I would say to shoot for 1k and be happy.

Well your first problem is trying to sell a non-existent product, hard to buy that.

If not already, I would suggest selling it on a forum like notebookreview. That way, you can subtract the crazy ebay fees and sell at a lower price.

That's too much to be asking for outdated hardware. You can buy a new model that's twice as powerful for not much more.

- Would take out the spelling mistakes
- I would not beat around the bush and just give a clear brand, modelnumber and specs without as much text around it.
-The Alienware thing in the title is misleading and confusing. Just use the brand and modelnumber.
-You likely still have the receipt and the laptop may still be under warranty. mention this.
-Lower the price , it seems too high.

Your asking price is very unrealistic.


You can get this machine brand new for the same price:

Also, mint/excellent for a two year old laptop? I have to assume someone has been using it for the past two years.

I wouldn't pay more than $400 for it maybe someone else will pay upto $700 for it

Yeah, you're WAY off with the pricing. I could go buy a brand new Alienware that is much better than that for about the same price.

Drop the price to $600 and even then you might have a hard time selling it.

Yeah, the price is way off, and with the way you word things in the text, and have alienware in the title, it actually looks like a scam.
