    I am wanting to upgrade my MBA, but would like to sell my current MBA. Any ideas on what I can ask for my current mac? It is an 2011 - 11" MBA with (i5/4gb/128hd), still has a year and a half left on the apple care.

    I just put mine for $750, no Applecare though. I sold my 2010 11" for $550 and my 2GB/64GB 2011 11" for $650

    I would say....

    a good asking price would be $720-800 tops. AppleCare still running in the machine helps. But also helps good care/no cosmetic and functional issues.

    If you are selling through a online site, factor in shipping costs/fees

    With no offence intended to you, that site is far from accurate and in my opinion it under values things, in fact they would offer about $475 for that particular machine...

    The most accurate way of deciding the value of your computer on the secondhand market is to search ebay for the same model, select completed listings and then take an average price from those that have sold in the last month, then you know what people are willing to pay and that will tell you the market value of your computer.

    No other way is more accurate than that, because it's only worth what people are willing to pay.

    A quick scan through eBay would say that about $750-850 would be about right for that machine and more likely to get the top end with Apple Care and it's original packaging.

    I saw a few in the last few days do around 710-740 no apple care, have seen some sell at 675. But the post above me is right go to ebay and search sold listings...there is the market.

    You can get more on eBay but you might have to list a bunch of times, deal with scammers, eBay fees and paypal fees.

    I'd rather sell it for less to a local buyer paying in cash.

    I never said it had to be sold on eBay, I suggested using it as a tool to ascertain its value.

    You could probably get around 800.00 for it, with the extra AppleCare and as long as it's in good condition. I've sold a couple of Macs in the last 6 months (11" 2010 4/128 w/damage for 750.00; 11" 2010 4/128 for 800.00), one was through eBay, one was through Kijiji (Canada's craigslist). The thing is, if you sell it on craigslist, and get a Mac newbie who didn't do their research, they may overpay. It happens, and it's not your fault if someone isn't educated when it comes to Macs.... :rolleyes:

    I just bought macbook air w/ the same specs for $720 from apples refurbished site. So I think anywhere from $600.00-$650.00 would be a good price assuming there aren't any scratches or dents and the keyboard and trackpad are still in good condition.

    I just bought about a month ago, a new 2011 11" air for 699.00 with 1 yr warranty, so factor that in, it is a limited item but they are still available.

    Where did you scoop one up for if you don't mind me asking? I'm eyeing a MBA and 2011 models seem to save quite a bit of money as the lesser graphics won't bother me too much as I don't plan on doing too much on it
