    HELP - Macbook Price
    I was wondering what everybody thought I should sell my macbook for. I want to upgrade to an iMac. Here's my specs:

    MacBook
    13-inch, Late 2009
    Processor 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory 3 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB
    Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4
    (It's in excellent condition, no major scratches, plus it has a speck case.)


    Thanks for the help guys!!!

    I sold one just like it about 3 weeks ago for $500. The guy I sold it to (which I know) then turned around and sold it for $599. You should DEFINITELY be able to get more than $400-$450 for it.

    You have to be a patient and good salesman. I sold an early 2008 MacBook which was in pristine condition for more than you sold your 2009 MBP. I sold it locally and in person for cash.

    Yeah, if you're the buyer. I'll agree you can buy a used machine for less. But if you have a clean machine; no marks or glitches on the screen or case, and it runs well, you'll get a premium price. The guy that bought my machine was happy that he was able to get a like new 2008 MacBook for the price he got it for.

    Not insane at all.

    - 2.0ghz core 2 duo MacBooks from 2007-2008...$350-$425
    - 2.4ghz core 2 duo MacBooks from 2008...$400-$425
    - 2.26 core 2 duo Unibody MacBooks from 2009...$425-$500

    These are Craig's List prices...e-Bay will be even more.

    I have never never seen a fully functional core 2 duo MacBook selling for $250 (mentioned above). Probably because if they do exist...they are "snapped" up in like 5 minutes.

    I do agree...anything over $500-$550 is pushing it...but then individual configurations (ram & HD size) can make a small difference.
