    I have a 2010 MacbookPro that I am trying to sell. The model number is A 1278. I entered the computer details onto Gadget Value and the approximate asking price I received was $885-$921. Details listed below.

    Manufacturer – Apple Macbook Pro
    Year – 2010
    RAM – 4GB
    CD Drive – DVD DL RW
    Processor Speed – 2.4 GHz – 2.7 GHz
    HDD – 500GB
    Processor – Intel – Core i7 (Nov2008)
    Graphics Card – 256 MB
    Features
    – Webcam
    – Bluetooth
    – HDMI
    Screen Size – 12″ to 16″
    Battery Condition – Good
    Screen Condition – Good
    Other Parts (Keyboard /Mouse) Condition – Working
    Remaining Warranty Period – Expired
    Price range : $885 to $921

    My neighbor who is a good friend of mine and knows much more about computers as he is in the industry is interested in buying it. I offered it to him for $700. He clearly indicated that he thought $700 was too much and said he was more interested in paying $500-$600 dollars. Money and friends. I have looked at other websites and have gotten anything between $550 to $1200, but Gadget Value had me enter in what I found to be the most relevant information. What is a good price?

    The specs you list are quite all over the place, as A1278 indicates all Aluminium Unibody 13" MB/MBP models since late 2008 and in 2010 it still used a C2D CPU and not an i7. It also does not feature an HDMI port.

    To get your machine's specs, go to :apple: > About This Mac > More Info (> System Report) > Hardware Overview.

    Mac2Sell, Gazelle or eBay (Việt Nam, Türkiye, Česká republika, Hanguk) might be good price checkers.

    I just called apple support and I figured out why my information does not fit together. The bottom of my laptop says 2010 model when the support team says it is a 2011. So I do have HDMI and an Intel i7 Core of 2.7 Ghz. I fixed the info about the CD Drive to CD R CD RW also.

    Year – 2011
    RAM – 4GB
    CD Drive – CD R CD RW
    Processor Speed – 2.4 GHz – 2.7 GHz
    HDD – 500GB
    Processor – Intel – Core i7 Extreme (Mar2010)
    Graphics Card – 256 MB
    Features – Webcam
    – Bluetooth
    – HDMI
    Screen Size – 12″ to 16″
    Battery Condition – Good
    Screen Condition – Good
    Other Parts (Keyboard /Mouse) Condition – Working

    Sorry, but the 2011 MBPs do not have an i7 Extreme CPU nor do they have HDMI, they have Mini DisplayPort.

    from

    The easiest way to get your MBPs specs, if About This Mac does not work for you for whatever reasons,
    is to find the serial number - Mac OS X: About This Mac window provides computer serial number -
    and going to this website or this to enter the serial number to get the exact specs of your machine.
