    15" rMBP Base Model
    Bought it in September 2012

    256gb SSD
    2.3 GHz Intel COre i7
    8 gigs ram
    Nvidia 650m

    I bought AppleCare for it, so the warranty expires September 4, 2015

    It has an iCarbons skin on it that has never been removed since the first day I bought it. I still haven't removed it, so I'm sure it has no scratches on the aluminum finish.

    I had the display replaced in March because of Image Retention

    They replaced it with a Samsung Display :D and it looks really awesome. (I have the paperwork for this)

    I still have the original packaging and accessories

    I'm gonna be selling it on eBay soon, what price should I sell it for?

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), and Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

    My rule of thumb is at least 10% under what a refurb would run you. Forget the skins, while they're nice for you, someone may not care or want them.

    I would say.....

    taking a loss, maybe 25% off from a similar spec refurb. But taking in account you have AppleCare vs. the normal warranty on refurbs, maybe a 10% off is better. Pending in how well care the machines was and no cosmetic or functional issues....and yes, forget about the covers....
