Hello everyone, I've just joined and here's my first question. I'm very new to this and only post because the hubby is not able to do it himself right now! We have questions as we have a laptop I got a year ago and have used all of maybe ten times!? It even still has all the plastic on it! We both LOVE the new Mac's and now we're looking to sell my laptop/notebook,
It's a HP Pavillon 15 Notebook PC Touchsmart 15-n293cl.
15.6 Diagonal HD bright view LED Display
1TB Hard Drive
12288MB DDR3 SDRAM
WLAN
DVD Optical Drive
4th Generation Intel Core
i5-4200U Processor (1.6 Ghz)
Windows 8.1

I have no idea if this was enough information to help you help me but it's the best I've got! 😜

Item values are always relative to where you live... try searching your local classifieds to get an idea.

Been there done that, checked Amazon and eBay also that's why I've come on here to ask, I'm not seeing much of anything about these anywhere!? Thanks for the tip anyway, I'll get an answer or we'll just end up keeping it as a spare.

Take 10% off whatever you paid for it and put it up... if it doesn't sell in 2-3 weeks knock off another 5%.... keep doing that until it's gone.

 

2nd hand value with tech goods is what people are prepared to pay (which varies from region to region, year to year), it's not something anyone can tell you definitively.

 

Or you can just send it to me, and know it will fight the good fight to help keep other peoples computers running well and malware free.  :wink:

I think is a ways off.  10% isn't even close to what someone will pay.  At a year old you'll be lucky to get half of what you paid for it, it doesn't matter how good it looks.

This is exactly correct. The opening price that you should be asking for this is approx. 50% of what you paid for it, and then if it doesn’t sell you could reduce the price from there.

That's what we've done, we've taken 50% and then some, if it doesn't move we will most likely hang on to it or give it to a student in need. Thank you TsVk, Kilroy and Rocky Bennett for all your help.

Have a great Christmas and safe travels to you all

By asking too much at first and then reducing the price you create bargain need in the buyer, if you start low it wrecks your price reduction.

Same as when buying... Start high and claim some excuse to put the price down.

But at the same time, a hardly used laptop at 1/2 price shouldn't last long. Maybe need a better advertising platform?
