A very hot place
I have a macbook pro that I'm looking to sell and I was wondering what would be the best (i.e. quickest way) of going about this. The computer is barely three months old so I was thinking I could just give it back to Apple? The problem is, how much does Apple usually pay for computers that they refurbish, or do they just take it in for trade-in?

the Apple refurb section is for repairs and returns within 30 day's i think - anything other woud just be excess stock like iPods and so on

your best bet is to takes some pic's and put it on ebay you'l get about the same as a refurb store price there

Apple doesn't do trade ins. The refurbs you see on their websites are stock that has been returned within the normal return period. Your best bet would be Craig's List, eBay, or the Marketplace here, once you acquire enough posts.
