    First thing, make sure you have the physical CD's and license keys if you expect to sell your mac with the software.

    MSRP new is 1200$, and the price used turn around 1050$ on ebay. Since it has minor scratches, assume its worth to surf around 1k.

    Add 70$ for the accessories and it should get you 1070$ at most.

    IF you have the boxes for office and w7, add 300. For the rest, it does not have "real" value among buyers, at most 20$.

    So, the machine+accesories+w7 and office(with boxes): 1370$, and be firm about the price.

    That would be my advice.

    Final Cut Pro X is a Mac App Store product. I believe that means it is tied to the user, not the machine, so the purchaser will not be able to download any updates.

    True, but even a illegitimate copy will link itself to the appstore :rolleyes:

    The thing is: I wouldn't buy your MacBook with the software. You better sell everything solely.

    Here is why: People don't want to be limited in making their decisions (like: what software do I install?) and they want to influence their decisions.

    My advice in short because bullet points are catchy:
    • sell every item solely
    • include Lion as a gift (people love gifts)
    • go below 20-30 percent of the refurbished price
    The last point is not unimportant. People consider their belongings much more worth than others do. That has something to do with personal worth, the self-serving bias et cetera.

    Personally spoken: I will probably never buy an used Mac from eBay or colleagues. I will buy an refurbished Mac - because the price difference is marginal, it is new and - most important - I can give it back to Apple within 2 or 4 weeks if I'm not pleased. And that is, according to what I said earlier about the freedom to influence own decisions, quite an argument. For me, at least.

    Have a nice day.

    You're basically selling a stock Early 2011 13" base. As such, you're probably looking at $850-900.

    You're much better off selling Windows and FCPX separately - they're not going to add much to the computer itself.
