How much do think I can sell my laptop for?

No I didn't miss it. The other used g75 ones I saw on amazon were 1000 or higher and I'm only asking 800 for mine. So I might just be able to sell it for that much if someone sees that mines is about 200 dollars cheaper.

My laptop that I'm using now is very similar to those specs, only I have a 670, not a 660, as well as a few other minor differences.

Buying them last year would cost a least a thousand, but if you want to entice people to getting an older laptop, I'd say sell it at 750 for awhile, then 700 if you can't get anyone. Used laptops are not too enticing, so use the price to lure them. You're a bit unlikely to trick anyone with 850.

Edit: I would ignore how much other people are selling their laptops as they're probably not needing the money instantly, or ever. People who didn't do research would buy last years specs at a dumb price.

Not to mention xoticpc sells updated and freshly made laptops at 850 as well. People are more likely to go buy something new than used. If you want the money sooner, I'd lower it. If you feel like you can wait, keep the price where it's at or undercut a little.

I actually had someone that was gonna buy it but he was outside the country and I don't deal with outsiders.

You can get a new laptop with better specs for $750 right now, $850 isn't just a hard sell, it's basically an impossible sell. A Lenovo y410 comes with a Haswell i7 vs your IB and a 750m which is literally a 660m with better clocks. $600 would really be highballing its value, if it's near mint and still under warranty it would be worth that but if it has typical wear and tear with no warranty I wouldn't pay $500, $400 would be pushing it in that scenario.

This was on a Flash Sale for $750 yesterday. It might take a while to get rid of yours at $800.
