    Laptop condition might be an important point too.

    Probably around £600 second hand I think.

    My Studio 15 was £750 new and has everything yours has but it has a backlight keyboard, 9 cell battery, i7 processor and a better graphics card.
    Mine has no Blu-Ray or TV tuner though.

    Have you looked at DEll Trade in?

    dell.trade-in-platform.com

    Not necessarily the best option (I heve no experience of it) but you may wish to consider.

    Re: Value my laptop?

    Why is a refurb not a valid comparison? I suspect in many cases it's only a matter of giving it a bit of a clean, checking the battery holds a charge and doing a factory restore!

    My Thinkpad X61 was a refurb and saved me at least 200 quid off the store outlet price. It was in beautiful condition, and the battery had only been recharged twenty times! (edit: it also had two years left on the warranty)

    Some "refurbs" are simply missing cables/manuals and are otherwise new.

    Probably only £500, you'll get a better price for it if you stump up for Windows 7 and include that.
