You could haggle over the BT KB and the Trackpad....Might get an extra 50.00 but you might have to wait for a sale...I'd say that was a pretty good price.

yea i figured it was a good price, with my discounts i paid 1000 for it 18 months ago so ive lost 50 for 18 months ownership, its cash so i avoid ebay fees the people getting 1100 are having to pay as well...

mac2sell gives budgets to give you a good feel of what the marketplace will buy it for.

that site seems broken, says like 600 but none actually sell for less than 900.

I think 950 seems to be a good bet

It's always been a little under, but never 300! Disregard it in this case.

I would take that.

Actually just as a reflex I would say 975! Try for 1000, meet in the middle.

I sold my iMac mid 2011 27" yesterday for 900.
I sold it early before the market became flooded with iMacs.
The fun I had was factory resetting my mac back to SL as it wouldn't reinstall, no sandy bridge drives on my disc, 10.6.3, I needed 10.6.6, which meant I had to get the new buyer to buy ML and then format my ML and reinstall it under his account whiles he was waiting.

Post Imho....

adjusting for depreciation/exchange rate you can get around 850-900 pounds.
Can go higher based in the cosmetic estate of your computer, remaining warranties and kind of use/care the computer has got.

But if you have a upfront 950 pounds offer, my advice is go for it!
