How long have you had and used it? Cause usually you subtract 20% from it but if its newer less.

Do you have a local "trading post" newspaper or similar? I would research the market, because there's no point in selling something at a price no-one's buying...

Well comparing that to todays deals at Futureshop and Bestbuy, you have to pay almost $1100 for a good video card, hard drive, cpu and 17" display. Now yours has a better video card and high resolution while the Hard Drive is not that great. I would price it under $2000. Also I was wondering if this is Core 2 Duo or Core Duo which is the cheap half cache brother of C2D.

I would Reformat the Hard disk and put fresh copy of Windows on it.

This way everything is like new.

This'll give you an idea, everything is equal or better then your laptop, going at a price of 1450$.
To be honest, I have seen laptops similar to yours going at a price of 1000 or less, and cause it's used I normally knock off an additional 15%.
I'd hold on to it as your not going to get a decent price for what you paid for in the past, unless you find someone that knows little about computers.
