    Hi everybody -

    just looking for some feedback:

    just agreed to sell my stock 1.83 macbook for $850. was curious if people think that was a good enough price. i guess i'm having the seller's remourse. :(

    Any thoughts?

    You've lost what? $200? How old is it? If it was one of the first you've not done badly I guess.

    I don't think you'e done too bad. I think the person your sellingit to got a good deal, but I far from think you got a bad one.

    decent deal for both buyer and seller. you might have gotten more on ebay but you'd then have to deal with the fees.

    yeah that's the thing, i respnded to his craigslist ad saying he wanted one and he's coming to me to pick it up. i knew i wanted to get rid of it, but hadn't seriously considered doing so till i saw his ad. i figure this way i just need a few more bucks for a base model imac.

    You might have been able to get a little more money for it, but it sounds like both you and the buyer made out alright. :)

    it is not the best offer. you definitely could have done better (as much as 950, i would say).

    you don't say whether you bought the extended AppleCare warranty - if you did then you are definitely getting ripped off.

    It was a pretty good deal, I'd say. Maybe you could've swung $900 or $950, but $850 is still a good price! No need to feel bad.

    i wouldn't have let it go for under $900, but that's just me. I'm looking to get the same price for mine that i bought it for, which is $1200, but I also put in a GB of ram, so i think my idea is legit
