This depends on a number of factors such as the age of the unit, how well maintained and protected it has been while in your possession, what the configuration is (e.g. model of CPU, amount of RAM, size and type of hard drive, type of optical drive, etc.). It also depends on whether someone wants Windows 8. In my professional experience, most people are trying to get away from Windows 8, so having the machine installed with it tends to decrease its value fairly heftily. Also, no matter what, do not expect to get anywhere near brand new price for the unit unless you bought it within the last month and it is in near-new condition (i.e. no scratches or sticker residue on the case, no physical damage such as bad keyboard or cracked screen, no obvious signs of owner-attempted modifications, etc.).

If you wish for me to give you a ballpark of what I would expect you to be able to get for the machine in my professional opinion, drop me a line and let me know more about the machine. I will gladly tell you what I can.
