It's hard to put a value on but the CPU and graphics card are still really strong and it has a full hd screen, but the market for these sort of laptops is not a big one. You could ebay it 99p start auction, If it were mine I would probably want to clear £500

Thank you for your reply although I was hoping to get a little bit more out of it... The only reason I do not really want to put it on ebay is that they take 11% of the total price if I am not mistaken? Do you know any other platforms or means to sell it?
Thank you in advance.
