    Hi,

    I have an early-2009 MacBook (MB881*/A) I am thinking about selling. Spec is - 2GHz, 2GB RAM, 120GB HD. It has OS 10.5.8, iLife 09 and Microsoft Office 2008. Also, it had the entire top case, bottom case and LCD replaced (this week) by Apple for 327.60, (don't worry, insurance paid this!) so apart from the outside of the lid and the battery pack (which are fine anyway) it's cosmetically new!

    How much do you reckon it's worth? I've been looking on eBay, seems to be around 350 - 450?

    Many thanks!

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    If it doesn't include the Mac OS X, iLife 09 and MS Office 2008 original disks and licenses with it, then those things are worthless as part of the sale.

    It runs as new, no problems. It includes all the original packaging, paperwork, accessories and discs for iLife and OS X. I won't include the Microsoft Office discs, but I will load it onto the Mac and include the license, as I have 2 licenses left. I have not put the Office discs into it once since I originally loaded it 2 years ago.

    MacBook Pro 13"
    When selling, I think it's always a good idea to format the HD and do a clean install.

    I'd say it's worth about 475 - 500. My similar aged MBP is probably worth about 500.

    2013 MacBook Air 13" / 1.3 GHz Intel Core i5 / 4GB DDR3 RAM / 128 GB SSD / OSX Mavericks 10.9

    Thanks, yeah I would definitely format the hard drive, then just install Office. If I got that kinda money for it, I'd be very pleased! Especially as Currys are doing refurbishes MacBook Pros for only 750!

    I think you are in the right ball-park at 350 -450 - probably nearer the bottom figure. Is there any remaining Applecare warranty left?

    My macbook is older, but 4Gb RAM and 500Gb hard drive (new), plus a brand new superdrive and battery from Apple. Mine should be going on Ebay shortly - I am hoping for ~ 375 for it.
