Hi, I own a MSI ge62 6QF laptop with an i7 and gtx 970m. Im having alot of trouble trying to sell it even though it's not even a year old and still works the exact same as if you just bought it. I already put it up on craigslist, so If anyone has any other ideas on how to sell it then any help would be appreciated! Thanks :)

That's kinda way too high.
I'd go 800 max for that second hand, around 700 realistically.
You can get a GTX 1060 i7 7700HQ laptop refurb for $830 which performs far better.
Prices drop, I bought my GTX 680 for around 800 AUD at launch 5ish years ago, now you can get the equivalent for a cool $200. Especially with the advent of full GPU chips in laptops now with slightly lower voltages, and the initially overpriced cost you paid for it it's not surprising.

If its not selling, maybe you've priced it too high.

I Bought it for around $2000 and i'm asking for around $1200-$1400 (also i'm in canada and since the dollars low everything costs more so I think my price is pretty reasonable)

Well...results are the only thing that counts.
Doesn't matter what you think...the only thing that counts is what a prospective buyer thinks.
