    ETA: THIS IS NOT A FOR SALE AD

    24-inch Mid 2007
    Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    Graphics ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB
    Storage 2TB HD upgraded by me as my old HD was failing.

    Wasn't planning on selling it still runs fine, got approved for the 0% financing for 18 months and figured why not.

    Looked at mac2sell and it said $720. Does that sound right?

    I would say.....

    $450-500 tops, and please dont take offense, with reserves. No cosmetic/functional issues and good care of the machine can help to go up in the price.

    If selling through an online site, factor in shipping costs/fees

    No offense taken. I understand its an older machine, I've gotten my use out of it, that's for sure. $450-500 sounds reasonable and will help on the purchase price of its replacement. Thanks for the input.

    I'm looking to selling my similar 24" iMac once my new 27" shows up. Let us know how much you end up selling it for. I'll probably try to do a local sale so I don't have to deal with scammers and shipping.

    Others have said up to $500, but I would say that a reasonable price to expect(even though you upgraded the HDD) would be no more than $400. The reason I say that is because my 2009 iMac with 8GB RAM and a 3TB HDD was quoted at $800. I redid the quote with only 4GB of RAM and the quote dropped to $680. 4GB of RAM is not very expensive anymore and that's why I would disagree with mac2sell and the hopes for $500. Good luck with the sale.

    I'll post what I get for it when it sells, I'm looking locally as well, don't want to deal with the problems you mentioned either.
