Id say 1600 then he will probally say 1400 then you say 1500 and he will probally buy it.. Because alienwares kinda suck and with 1350 dollars you can get a nice desktop

He's clearly interested but going for a haggle, why not engage him? Just try to remember that both parties want a sale and you aren't going to get what you paid for it.

research the market price first.
then sell it at the price you are comfortable with. if you feel like you could get a better price, turn the offer down.
if the item doesn't sell fast enough, lower the asking price.
repeat until item is sold.

The only Alienware worth getting is the M11X. All else is a waste of money.
