Hi there! I'm preparing to sell my MacBook Pro and was hoping to get some advice with regards to what a fair price might be. I realize that http://www.mac2sell.net and eBay can provide some good starting points, but I'd really appreciate some insight from some of the members here, as there are a few things that I think could affect my asking price. These are the specs: Model: MacBook Pro 5,1 Display: 15" glossy Processor: 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo Memory: 8 GB Hard drive: 500 GB (7200rpm) AppleCare expiry: March 30, 2012 Mac2Sell tells me that its estimated value is $1,130 CAD. A few things I'd like to mention: The laptop has had its fair share of repairs. Would the new parts add more value to the laptop? Or would the fact that it has needed so many repairs detract from its resale value? The battery lost all of its health literally overnight. One day it was at 95% health and the next morning its health had almost completely depleted. An Apple Store immediately replaced the battery. The hard drive crashed last year and was replaced and upgraded from the stock 320 GB hard drive to a WD Scorpio Black drive The SuperDrive will be replaced before being sold. I took my MacBook Pro to an Apple Store recently, while on vacation, and they ran tests to determine that it was faulty and needed to be replaced. Unfortunately, they were unable to get the part before I left town again. An authorized Apple repair tech will be doing the repair here. I'm currently experiencing a flickering display problem with the laptop. For an example, watch this video. I'm not sure what the repair for this will be, but it will certainly be completed before sale. The notebook is in very good condition, I'd say. There is a very small dent on the top lid. There are the typical scratches on the bottom of the notebook. The biggest aesthetic issue is that I'm missing one of the rubber feet, which I will hopefully replace before sale. The notebook does not have its original box, but would come with the following accessories: MagSafe adapter with revised design (purchased this year) Mac OS X 10.6 install disc Apple Wireless Keyboard Apple Magic Mouse Apple remote Just to be clear, this is not me trying to subtly advertise my laptop. I'm not even planning on selling it for another month or so. I also apologize if this type of post is only allowed in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum. I don't have a high enough post count to access that subforum and I'm just trying to plan my budget for when I buy my new iMac and MacBook Pro! Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to your advice as to what I should ask for, with regards to price!
