I have a brand new Dell Latitude E6510 notebook, but I'm looking to sell it right now. A friend put his on ebay, but it's not getting great sales. What's the best method to go about selling the laptop and quickly (especially because it loses its value by the month)? It's valued at $2300 with the following specs:

"Regal Red" Latitude E6510*
Genuine Windows® 7 Professional, 64-bit*

2.53 GHz Intel® CORE™ 2-Duo i5-540M processor*
4.0 GB, DDR3-1333 SDRAM, 1 DIMM*
Intel® HD Graphics
250 GB 7200rpm Hard Drive
15.6" Full HD (1920x1080) Wide View Anti-Glare LED Display
10/100 Gigabit Ethernet
Dell Wireless® 375 Bluetooth Module
Light Sensitive Webcam and Noise Canceling Digital Array Mic*
Intel® Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN*
Microsoft® Office 2007 Professional and Adobe Acrobat 9.0*
Three-year CompleteCare Accidental Damage Protection*

If it's brand new, send it back to Dell within the return period if you don't want it. You shouldn't get that much for a used computer-and that system is basically low end. I mean you can get higher end hardware for probably $800.

I just got a Dell Studio with better specs for $1500!

Oh easily. You can easily get better specs for under $1000. I mean a dual core CPU with integrated graphics for $2300!?! That makes Apple's notebooks look like a steal.

Okay, first, don't buy from random people on the forum here-that's dangerous. Second, $600 can buy you something that's in some ways better, or at least not much different from that, except new. I would HIGHLY recommend buying new over used, particularly when it's from some random stranger.

If you want used, check Dell's outlet section-at least then you get a warranty and it's been searched over, and you know roughly the status of the hardware before buying it.

I totally agree with WolfPup.
R. Garcia's post reads like con artist literature.

Actually, this was a gift laptop. That's why it's past the return date, otherwise I easily would've gotten the money for it. I'm not even looking to sell it here on Amazon, otherwise I would have posted it as a normal seller. The $2300 figure was what I was told by someone who had the same laptop; I didn't realize how over-valued he had it.
I guess the best method is to keep the laptop since it's really not going to gain enough money to cover what was originally paid.

Well it could have actually cost that much, it's just not worth that much. The Latitude line and other lines aimed at corporations are really's a way to sell basically the same hardware at two different price points. They might have some network management stuff in the BIOS, they keep the hardware around longer than they do for "consumer" systems so a corporation can buy a ton of one configuration, but practically speaking that's just a very solid mid range CPU with no GPU for apparently a high end price. You can get high end GPUs and quad core CPUs for around half that.

your out of luck that computer is worth 499.00 if you look on amazon you
will see thats what people are spending for the same computer. this
sucks for you sorry. computers are cheep now. and some times you get a
printer. i will give you 499.00 if you want to sell it.

Thanks for the information WolfPup. It really wouldn't make sense for a Dell to cost more than a high end Mac. Like I said before, I'm not looking to sell the laptop here, and I'll probably keep it.

Mr. Garcia. I am 64 yrs old and tryng to get back into computers. I have had MS for 13 yrs. and since then my interest has wained. I am excited to do so again but I just do not have the money due to financial concerns from rising healthcare costs. From my SS I have saved $386.00 so far. Your question indicates your knowledge and I am seeking your advice in a notebook or laptop in the $500.00 range. Thank you and God Bless you Mr. Royce. Sincerely Mike Goeke (real name).

What do you want to do with the system? $400-500 should buy a very decent low end notebook that will do the basics. It'll buy more hardware in a desktop, but obviously there are advantages to notebooks.

You could get a new laptop with similar specs as what you described for less than $900 during holiday seasons. For a used one, the price should be less than $700
