    how much is my macbook currently worth?
    I plan on selling my old Macbook on eBay or craigslist, but I'm not sure how much I should ask for it. The trade in price on Radioshack.com said to be about $125. I bought it in Dec '08. Does that price sound right? Here are the comp specs:

    It's worth more than $125 if you sell it yourself.

    For an approx. current value check:

    Mac2Sell

    Also check e-Bay.

    Assuming a 250GB drive (since you didn't say), Mac2Sell says your Macbook is worth $300..

    Thanks!

    Forgot to mention its in pretty good shape. Just had to replace the battery a couple months ago, other than that never had any real problems with it.

    If it's the late 2008 aluminum model MacBook it will easily sell for $300 or more especially if it's in good condition. I would try to sell it for $399 and maybe come down a bit depending on what offers you get.

    My cousin just bought one identical to that for 450 off of craigslist, start your offer higher and then work it down till you get interest in the computer.
