2011 15in MBP Price: Aftermarket SSD Question

I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro 15 inch with the following specs:
- 2.2Hz i7
- 8gb aftermarket ram
- 256gb Crucial C300 SSD
- ATI 6750M with 1gb ram
- Hi-Res glossy screen
- 1.5 years left on AppleCare.

I did a quick check on Mac2Sell and I get either a price of $1500 or $1900 depending on whether I state that the hard drive is a SSD. My question is how much of a premium should I really expect from the aftermarket SSD and also the 1.5 years of AppleCare.

I'm in the SF area so Ill probably do CL because there seems to be a good amount of traffic. I've seen macbook pros all over the map there in terms of pricing.

Thanks

Mac2Sell is known to give higher prices than the Mac is actually worth, especially when you take into account, that you can get 256 GB of SSD storage for less than 200 USD and not for 400 USD like Mac2Sell wants you to believe.

Gazelle or eBay (Việt Nam, Türkiye, Česká republika, Hanguk) might be good alternative price checkers.

I would say....

a premium of $350 is a handsomely one.

Thanks for the feedback

That's a good way of looking at the pricing simsaladimbamba.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll try and add $100 premium for the SSD as well as another $100 or so for the amount left on Applecare.
