    I'm selling a rMBP on craigslist and got offered $1000.
    Specs are 2.5 Ghz i5 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. Late 2012 model.
    Its in very new condition never leaving my desk and used occasionally never heavy used.

    Should I be asking more or is that about what I should expect? I paid ~$1450 for it.:confused:

    If it's under warranty, I think you could get a bit more if it's near mint.

    Well, you can try recovering 75% from the original price ($1100,00), but without warranty (and no option to buy Apple Care), you're selling some risk to the next owner. Also, the current 13"/8GB/i5/256GB costs $1399 with the student discount. Sounds like $1000 is a fair price.

    I think $1000 is better than good.
    I paid around that for the same model with a month or two of warranty left.
    Without the warranty I don't think I would have.

    Looks like a good offer; just make sure all your data is deleted and the OS has been reinstalled.

    Supply and demand. Is there a lot of used MBP's for sale on your towns Craigslist?

    If the choices are few, you may be able to get a little more, if there are a lot you may want to take the offer.

    On eBay, check the "sold" listings. There is a tick on the left side of the page. Craigslist, I almost never use them anymore. Bunch of cheap buyers. If you asked $1000, they would offer $750. Then there's the matter of the exchange. Do you want someone you don't know coming to your home? I don't. Neutral spot like Starbucks, maybe, but what's to prevent a buyer from just grabbing the item and running?

    What you paid for it is irrelevant. I just sold my IP6 S on eBay. Yes, eBay and PayPal take a cut. More than I would like but well worth the price in lieu of dealing with craigslist CHEAPIES.

    If they're not willing to meet in a public place then don't do the deal.
