I have a 15.4" MBP from Dec. 2010. Had some problems after 1 year warranty up with light going out on charger and computer shutting down, occasionally fans would run on high requiring SMC reset. Apple genius bar diagnosed nothing, extensive diagnostics done as well showing nothing. ?logic board. It hasn't done it for a couple months now until just once this week. My husband and I are trying to simplify computers. He's an engineer and PC guy and we use some PC programs on his laptop (no problems after 4 years...my MBP hard drive crashed 1 month after using and now this....hmmm?) Anyways, we're thinking maybe I should sell my MPB and get an ipad. All I really use my computer for is web surfing, FB, video chat, video streaming and music. Any advice on how to sell this, how much to ask, knowing it does have an undiagnosed problem? It's in great condition, has had a case on since day 1. Will an ipad 3 be a good option for me? Thanks for any suggestions!

There are several ways to determine a price for your Mac:

1. Mac2Sell

2. Check and compare eBay prices

3. Check and compare Craig's List prices

And to answer your other question regarding replacing the Mac with an iPad, in your particular situation and usage, it would be OK. However, for most folks an iPad is not a replacement for a computer.
