I need to sell her, how much should I ask?

I can no longer afford to keep my 2009 Quad 2.93 with 16GB of RAM, AirPort Extreme card, 1TB HD, and dual SuperDives around any more.

If I were to attempt to sell it on eBay, about where should I start with price?

It's in perfect cosmetic condition, and it's been kept clean and off the floor in a consistently vacuumed room since I got it " like new" last year from OWC.

I'm thinking somewhere between $1500-1750.

Thanks for any advice, PM me if you wish.

I would say closer to $1300-1400. if your asking price is including the shipping cost, it might be more reasonable.

seems a bit high to me... you are only going to get the 1300-1400 from someone who HAS to use a Mac (like audio work and stuff). Good luck seeling it though. My two cents... let the E-bay market decide, and set the min for 1200 or something.

Be sure to get a good shipping estimate prior to eBay listing. It weighs a ton and that will be a lot of $$$ to ship. Also ship it insured and with some form of confirmation.

Do you have the original packaging? Is there any AppleCare left?

If shipping is going to cost a lot, maybe try your luck on Craigslist?

Shipping would be between 40-50 bucks. I do have the original packaging, but no AppleCare.

I think....

a good price would be $1500.00 tops, shipping costs included. Apple Care would have helped to get a better price, but then, good cosmetic condition, no functional issues and good care also can help to a better price.

As a possible data point, I just sold my 2008 Mac Pro w/ 32 gb of ram and 4x1 tb drives for $1500 cash on Craigslist (Boston) about 2 weeks ago. And yeah, did it in the garage. Sold it within 2 days of posting on CL.
