    quick sale: $850-$900

    I wouldn't pay over $900 for the machine.

    That price is perfect in my opinion. Are you trying to make it a local sale or are you open to Amazon/eBay..etc?

    I'm sure you know what the exchange rate is for CAD-USD so the first response was actually mostly agreeing with your price point. Good luck.

    Do you have the original box, packaging, paperwork, power adapter..etc that came with the machine? If so, you might be able to squeeze a little bit more out of it. Otherwise, your pricing is fine.

    Geez, I may have even bought it for $1k if it had an ISO keyboard. Without proper keyboard, $800.

    Looking at sold items on eBay. That would fetch $650 to $850 USD. So I'd venture $780 to $950 CAD. For the price you want it would require an upgraded CPU, Hard Drive, Applecare and/or Video card.

    To fetch $950 CAD it would have to be prestine. Not a nick, scratch, dent or any other blemish anywhere. With original packaging also in mint condition.

    If you are not selling through eBay I would decrease everything by about 10%. Which is about how much eBay would cost you with listing and Paypal fees.

    I agree with your asking price because.....

    you stated:

    1-Excellent condition
    2-New battery
    3-Upgraded display

    But also see the point of pricing for quick sale between 850-1000 CAD. I suggest you "feel" the market with your current asking price. See how it goes.....:D

    A new one close to those specs would be around $2000 so that's a pretty fair price but the big ticket items are a little harder to sell. In my experience most people will want to pay about $700 or $800 for it. I sell everything on Craigslist and start at the price I want and then lower it if I don't get any hits on it.

    And that is, without an ISO (desirable) keyboard. Respect!

    How did you write the ad to sell so quickly without having it removed by a scam attempt?
