Hi,

I've got a Dell Precision M6300, 17" 1900 x 1200 laptop..
Core2 Duo T9300 @ 2.5ghz (6mb Cache)
4gb Ram,
64gb SSD (Solid State Hard Drive)
Nvidia Quadro FX3600
Dual Layer DVD RW
Bluetooth / Wireless N
3 Year warranty (it's literally 3 days old)

I'm currently in the UK, and don't really sell it till I get to NZ (after the 18th Aug).

Is trademe the best place to advertise ? or forums like this ?

Any ideas on the sort of price i can look at asking ? I know i'd be looking at about the £1700 - £1800 mark in the UK, but clearly, i'm not that up on the NZ market !

The only downside, is that it has a UK Keyboard

Advice welcomed.... :)

Not entirely clear about that response to be honest..... but are you saying i should be putting it on trade me ??? Sealed

I've just had my damn trademe account cancelled :(... had a mail through from them (today) saying that i have to be an NZ resident... bugger... i've not got an address out there yet, as we've not had a lot of joy finding places to live over the internet !

Do you think i will be able to get a decent price off Trade me... or should i be looking to sell before i come over ?

Cheers, !

Please ignore his alcohol-induced post, http://www.geekzone.co.nz/tonyhughes/5521 may go a small way to explaining why Mr Hughes graced us with his presence in such a manner in the wee hours of a Sunday morning.

RE: your post - the warranty is possibly not transferrable? I would expect a high end machine like that to sell for at best 2/3 - 3/4 of it's purchase price (the price someone could buy it from dell.co.nz for, if it is available there) on TradeMe. Sometimes you get lucky but you will be appealing to a specific market with those specs and price so it could be touch and go.

If you know you can get close to what you paid for it over there, I would take that as the "safe" option. It may sell here, you never know, we aren't so picky on your residential address and we won't charge exhorbitant (or any) fees like TradeMe will.

EDIT: I have changed the thread title to draw a bit more attention to the fact you would like to sell it, and to bring the thread into line with the forum rules. Feel free to change it to something different if you prefer.

Cheers for the response and advice...

I've checked on the warranty front, and the 3 year warranty is covered in NZ, so thats cool!  :)...

As for changing of the thread title, that's cool... if anyone wants to think about making offers of a reasonable value, baring in mind the laptop will be arriving in NZ (with me...) 18th /19th Aug... that'd be great !

I've not really got the opportunity to sell it in the UK now before i leave... so bu99er it, i'll bring it with me ! :)

Sorry I meant transferable to another person - warranties are often only for the original purchaser.

Ahhh, now i get you ! :)...

If it were a "home" device, such as an inspiron etc, then yes, I believe that is the case...
However, all precision kit is classed as business... and they Don't give a monkeys who the owner is.. I've had this confirmed for other reasons previously (the company I work for currently sell a lot of Dell kit..).

Hey all..

Well, I finally made it over to Auckland.... so this Laptop is now Officially for sale.

It was used on the flight a few times to show my 2 year old episodes of Bob the Builder, but i can promise they will be wiped off !

Still has 2 years 11 months + of Dell International Warranty, Is in immaculate condition, and comes with all accessories (and a Very High end laptop bag).


The SSD 64gb disk is really impressive... completely silent (as one would expect), but amazingly quick... Vista loads VERY quickly.

A Full on Workstation... I'm only selling as my new company have bought me a new dell laptop also, and i've already got a couple at home, so no point in being too greedy...

This was a leaving gift from my previous employer..

Please send me any reasonable offers :)..
