    How much is this Macbook worth?
    I am going to sell my Macbook... it was purchased in February of this year. It's in almost mint condition, but I don't know what it would be worth. Originally (before i upgraded the ram from 1GB to 4GB and before all the extras) it cost about $1600. I want to sell it as a package, but I dont know where I should set the reserve price or what I should advertise as the asking price... don't know how macs hold their value. There's nothing wrong with it, I just bought it to finish grad school and I'm finished now.

    Any ballpark numbers?


    Macbook Black
    2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM
    250GB Serial ATA @ 5400rpm
    SuperDrive 8x DL
    has Leopard, does not have AppleCare


    i would probably include:

    Apple bluetooth keyboard
    Apple bluetooth mouse
    Extra battery (black)
    VMWare Fusion
    Civilization IV


    I know this stuff would cost about $2k from the Apple Store but what about in resale?

    Specs:
    15" 2.2GHz Santa Rosa Macbook Pro - 4GB Ram - 120GB HD OS X Leopard - Windows XP
    I would guess (it's just a guess ) around $1,200 to $1,300...
    How is it cosmetically...

    cosmetically it's fine. it's never been dropped and there aren't any scratches or anything.

    there's a tiny little rough edge on the lid, on the corner where your fingers would touch when you open it (above where the indentation is on the bottom part of the case) but I couldn't even capture it with a camera. in my opinion it's almost perfect

    well it's already on ebay and has bids, so i'll sell it there...

    I can't stand selling things on craigslist, it's overrun with shady people. i can't tell how many times i have sold something and said 'price firm' or they agreed to my price beforehand and they show up with less money, thinking i will take a lowball offer just because it's right there in front of me.

    sold a bicycle on craigslist that the price was listed as "$1,000 firm", made sure they guy knew that on the phone, and he still showed up with $800 then got angry when I said no. What part of "firm" did you not understand?

    Sorry. /rant
