    I'm dumping one of my laptops it's an XPS M1530
    2.4 core2
    4GB
    8600GT
    500GB HD
    DVD/RW
    1440x900 no bad pixels

    Battery is good as new, laptop is nearly mint, still even under warranty a few weeks.
    What do you think it's worth? I'm having a hard time pricing this one.

    my only concern is that 8600... weren't a lot of those recalled? Could probably find another video chip for it (i think the xps line had a few options for video). If i was sure how much I was getting on my taxes, I'd make an offer lol

    nvm about the video, seems that was the upgrade option, from a 128mb 8400GS

    edit: based on the "full description" of the just ended ebay sale, you could get $450 maybe $500 for yours, the other was sold for $405 and it only had 1GB ram and a 120GB hdd. yours having a 500GB HDD and 4GB ram would fetch even more. AND yours has a higher screen res. 1440x900 vs 1280x800 on the other.

    Which battery does it have, 6cell (like the ebay one) or 9cell? if 9 cell, then yea i see no problem getting $500 for it. (that's how much i wouldn't complain about paying if I had the money) Maybe even a tad more givin the price of DDR-2 now
