Ok so i saw a Laptop for sale on Amazon for over £13000 and its specs seemed kind of crap for the price. (It might be amazing but it doesn't seem worth the price. Plus i don't know a lot about Computers in general.)
Here is the Link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00U0A88O0?qid=1448129306&ref_=sr_1_1&s=computers&sr=1-1

Now my issue here is that my laptop is similar but i bought is for much much less.
What do you think i could sell my laptop for if i were to sell it now?
Here are the specs:

If it is worth much less than the amazon one can you explain why that expensive laptop is for sale for that price? Do people actually pay that much?

Thank you for any helpful responses i receive.

The Amazon ad is just nonsense, and nobody would be stupid enough to buy it at anywhere near that price.

A general rule of thumb is that used equipment that is a year or two old is worth around half of what you paid, assuming you can find a buyer that wants a used machine with your specs and no warranty.
