    How much money I can get for my iMac?

    27" iMac 11,3 2.8GHz Mid 2010
    8GB of RAM
    2TB Hard Drive
    1GB ATI Radeon HD 5750 GPU
    Apple Care until July 2013

    It's in perfect working order with no scratches or dents anywhere.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or 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.

    I would say.....

    between $ 1100-1250. Good care of the machine, remaining AppleCare and no cosmetic or functional issues can help in the price.

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

    Mac2Sell says my iMac is worth $1510. Does this sound right to you?

    That sounds high. It's telling me about $1,250 when I check the site with your specs.

    Its a Dual Core, not Quad Core, correct? I think you can get in that $1200 range with the remaining AppleCare.

    No, it's a Quad Core.

    Ebay is still showing most sales in the $1200 range, but I don't think they have the RAM and 2TB drive. I still think $1500 is too much (2011 3.4 i7 is usually around $1750 when it pops up on the refurb site).

    Maybe try $1300-$1400? As many will tell you, post it for what you want and see if you get any interested takers. If you don't get anyone in two weeks, probably need to lower the price.
