I am trying to find out a good price to sell my Asus G74sx BB7 Model. It is used, just over a year old. Have never had any problems with it ...It is in New/Good Condition, have really taken care of it. Fantastic laptop just wondering what I should sell it for... I know Asus laptops really hold there value well. Some people were telling me I could get around 900 I honestly don't know if that soundsto high or not it probably is....so please any honest answers on what yall think a good price would be let me know. I don't wanna screw anyone over. Just need to sell this some issues and need the money.

Upgrades to it - Added more ram....from 8gigs to 12gigs DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM
Upgrades on of the harddrives - Took out on 500gb standard hardrive and replaced it with a Intel 128gig SolidState Drive, which runs simply amazing.

128gig Intel Solid State Drive

12g DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM

Graphics Card GPU:
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560M with 3GB/2GB GDDR5 VRAM (Actually a fantastic laptop card. Have been able to run almost everything max settings 50 to 60 frames a second)

What do you mean estore? Was just curious if someone had an idea what I could sell it for or what would be bet site to sell it on.

Definitely worth at least 1500.

I doubt the warranty is transferable, but apart from that everything is top notch. The RAM, drives, GPU, cpu are all still considered top of the range.

I wouldn't be surprised if you could sell it for over 2000. How much did you pay for it? You can probably sell it for 10% less than what you bought it for.

I dont know about $1500.

A quick google search comes up with this:

This was $899.99 when it was in stock. I would imagine you could get the same for the laptop as it currently is with its upgrades.
Unfortunately electronics just dont hold their value 99% of the time.

You also have to remember that BBK models are BestBuy sold units. Not to dog your laptop, but BB models are normally stripped down models sold at lower prices. So a BBK7 is not the same thing as like say a DH71. I had a BB model for my first ROG laptop and the motherboard was even different where it would not take a Quad core processor where a non BB model would. So BB models generally go for less.

It's the only laptop ever made where the NumLock key was replaced with a Calculator shortcut. It's a freakin' Collector's Item!
