Default WTT or Sell Dell XPS M1710 Laptop for smaller work friendly machine

the laptop is a bit to big for me to be lugging around school so i want to replace it with a medium sized laptop (please no 10" screen mini's) hears the specs:

Core: Intel Core 2 duo @ 2Ghz
VGA: Nvidia 7900 GO (its replaceable) 256mb
RAM: 2 Gig's DDR2
OS: Vista 32 bit home premium (DELL OEM version)
Screen 17" 1900x1200 Ultra high res
Keyboard: (US) English
HDD: 160GB 5400RPM
overall weight: 8 LB's
DVD Drive: 16x reader, 6x writer
Comes with: Dell disks & XPS Backpack
Any other questions please post!

Price: 850$

This was a very expensive laptop when it came out, and i originally bought it to use as a gaming computer (my rig at the time needed A LOT of work).

Please note the laptop also has a LED Glow function were the words XPS on the lid can glow, the side vents can glow, the touchpad, and the speakers. There are something like 20 different glow colors!

pics:






Backpack is hard to do a pic of, may wana google XPS backpack



So again i will take a swap, a swap with money, or a direct sale im trying to keep this local but if one of you far offs want it, ill certainly mail it off.

Its possible to swap the VGA card in this laptop with a 7950 GX or something like that (at the time that customization was very expensive) but the upside of swapping it is 512 Mb of Vram and a faster GPU.

I gaurentee this laptop will run most if not all valve games ( HL2, CSS, TF2 and so on) and most medium end games, it would struggle with crysis however...

The laptop has been treated very well and has not a single mark on it, a sign of my deep love for it.

I want to limit thread crapping, but one of the rules requires that you give a price if you are mentioning about selling it rather then just trading

He's right. If you wish to trade, that's fine. But If you wish to sell, then you must put up a price tag to it.
