    There are probably mixed reviews on adding the optibay, since it voids the warranty. That is a big price not to have a warranty. Do you plan on sending the original ODD with the purchase?

    I would think you could sell it for $1700, I know it has extra goodies, but like everything else, you don't get your money back on the options, it just makes it easier to sell. You could look at Amazon and see what they are going for, I saw one a step down with the optibay for $1800. Frankly if I am spending that kind of money and I did not perform the upgrades myself I would be hesitant buying one that has. You might have better luck pulling the optibay and putting back the ODD, and keeping the SSD for your 13". I think it will be more a sales hindrance with the optibay then an advantage. IMHO....

    Whenever you add custom options, you never see the return on that for resell.

    I would sell it without the SSD or replace the SSD with the HDD. The optibay removal voided warranty and buyers look for warranty. Price maybe around the 1700 range. I recently bought an early 2011 15" 6750M Antiglare for $1600 brand new from retail so that should help you decide on the price.

    Potential Buyer

    Hi, please message me. I am interested in the same setup with a 256GB SSD, so maybe I just buy yours without the SSD, but leave the Opti-dock in there?
    Would this 7mm high, 2.5" SSD fit?
    Message me pls or provide your contact details. I'm on the East Cost of US.
