Mid 2011, 13", 4GB, i5 price guide? Please

I'm looking to sell my MacBook Air, I have the apple SuperDrive to go with it.
It's the 13", 4GB RAM, 1.7GHz i5 processor. 128GB storage.

I've looked on eBay but cannot find any selling. I'm looking for a rough idea really. What do you guys recommend selling it for? A friend is interested in it.

Thanks.

Please don't delete this thread, I'm not looking to sell or advertise it on here, just after a price guide..which I cannot find.
Cheers

If it was the 2012 model, it would retail for $1280. But it is old and used. How is the condition?

Excellent: Roughly, I would say, 725-775 USD.

Thanks. It's immaculate..

I was thinking 700-750 on eBay. (I'm UK by the way)
But said I'd knock off fees if he wanted it..which would be more like 650-675 cash I guess. Which seems too low lol

For comparison, I just sold my 2011 11'' MBA with 4GB RAM, 1.6 GHZ i5, and 128GB storage for around $740 on eBay. Not sure what that would convert to in pounds, but you get the jist. You could probably expect to fetch around $50-$125 more than what I got because they are very similar computers. Good luck!

Ahh cheers. I think I'm pushing it but I'm going in at 800...does come with the SuperDrive aswel though.
See how that goes.

It's funny. I had a Mac mini and an iPad 2 back when that 1st came out. I then sold them for the MacBook Air but just got an iPad mini and want the mac mini back lol. The air is used mainly for music, films, iPhoto. I don't take it out with me, so the Mac mini for media and iPad mini for portability is what suits me best. ...which I had. :smacks forehead:

A guy just sold me that model in Glasgow for 500. With or without the SuperDrive, 800 is far too much, you can buy the refurb 2012 model with full warranty for 849.

Surely gotta be 600-700? 500 would hardly be worth me selling it.

I said 725-775 USD. 500 Euro is about 771 USD, so I would say more like 550-575 Euro. The thing is, is has Sandy Bridge, HD 3000 (60% slower than 4000) and no USB 3.0. Those are some serious concerns which impact the buying price.
