    I'm interested in selling my Late 2009 Mac Mini (I'll list the specs later) towards a purchase of the new entry-level iMac.

    Mac Mini Late 2009
    160GB Hardrive
    SuperDrive
    2GB RAM
    2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Mac OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion)

    If possible I'd like to also sell the display, which is:

    ViewSonic VA1930wm-3
    19"
    1440 x 900

    I might get next to nothing for them (compared to the price of the iMac) but I want to make sure that whatever I'm selling them through will get me the best price. I'm open to Gazelle or eBay, or any other reputable company that I can trust. I haven't had the best experience with selling things on eBay (my iPad 2 sat untouched for two weeks without one response, but, of course, that was just after the iPad 3 was announced).

    Anyway, I would really appreciate it if someone who has had experience with selling/buying Macs/iOS Devices/iPods could help me.

    Thanks in advance!

    When I was looking at minis on eBay a couple weeks ago, 2009's like yours were selling for around $350 - just the mini, no accessories, monitor, etc. Keep in mind you'll lose 10% or so in fees, though. Best of luck!

    I would say

    $250-300 for the computer and $50-60 for the monitor. Can go up based in no cosmetic/functional issues and general care of the equipment.

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