Im assuming used - probably around $200 for SD prices - as far as local craigslist, depends on how gullible your buyer is

best I can compare it to isthis alienware which was $330

yes, you have a SSD and an extra 4gb of ram compared to that deal, but your also a generation behind CPU wise, no wifi, no warranty, much weaker graphics card and used system

even with a genuine license (which it may be for you, but may not be genuine/legal after sale/transfer), very few people will need pro as compared to the standard version, and afaik it's not transferable (i.e. locked to hardware in the U.S.), so it's really not worth that much.

im also disregarding the xbox 360 controller that's included for free with the linked deal, as it's not really part of the computer value, but for me I wouldn't mind an extra controller for some games.

Slapshot136 just knocked this out of the park or maybe it is a slam dunk? Anyway I agree with him/her.

I'd part it out and sell each item separately (maybe motherboard + processor together). It would also be easier to determine a price that way.
