Value my Sony laptop plz.

I am considering selling my laptop, SONY VGN-FW21L and all accessories which are:
Creative X-Fi Surround 5.1 USB s/card
Microsoft notebook Mouse 6000
Original 250GB HDD with bundled software (Vista Premium)
Box & Paperwork

It is just over 12 months old and has had the following done:
Ram upgrade from 3GB - 4GB kingston HyperX
HDD upgraded from 250GB - 500GB
Win 7 Ultimate installed

Brief specs:
Core2Duo T5800 @ 2Ghz
ATI Mobility radeon HD3470 256mb
Blu-Ray DVD RW

It is in mint condition - no marks or scratches at all, I have used a mouse since buying it.

Just want an idea of what sort of figure i should be aiming for.

Thanks in advance.

have been checking ebay but not really any thing to compare with, 16.4" screen.
Besides after a recent Ebay sale I doubt I would list it on there.

Nice machine can't fault it. would like to get an intel icore machine.

Any warranty on it will make a difference to price

no warranty afaik, but the battery has only been charged 10-12 times and the rest of the time it's been run on mains without battery connected.

they come with a 2 year warranty you should check mine did

cool in that case there is at least 8 months left.

Repped! thanks for that.
Maybe a good idea for me to split the accessories and sell them seperately.:thumbsup:

Just over a year old and 8 warranty months left :whistling:
