    I was wondering if the community could give me an idea on where to price my Mac Mini at for sale.

    It has never been touched inside.

    Core i7 2.3 GHZ
    4 GB ram
    1 TB Drive

    It is in excellent condition, used very little. It has M Suite 2011, keyboard and mouse. It has another 3 year warranty as well.

    Look an Ebay and CraigsList to see what they are going for and price accordingly. Unless you include the license for Microsoft Office 2011 that adds nothing to the value. If the buyer already owns Microsoft Office 2011 and doesn't need another copy it doesn't add any value. Also Microsoft Office 2015 is supposed to be coming out in Q1 or Q2 which can have an impact of the value of the Microsoft Office 2011.

    What warranty do you have that adds three additional years of warranty after already owning the computer for a period of time? AppleCare is only good for 3 years from the date of purchase.

    Definitely check eBay and Craigslist. It sounds like the 2012 quad-core Mac minis are having their prices be somewhat inflated seeing as they are the newest and last Mac minis to have BOTH quad-core CPUs and more-user-accessible innards, a lacking that has had those who have an affinity for Mac minis disappointed with the new models.

    Also, of note, the above advice on software included in the sale is accurate and you should heed it.

    Damn, just bought a new, low-end Mini for $550-ish.

    Would have seriously considered a used 2012.

    Anyway, forget including the software, it's worthless to most everyone.
