    Looking for the ebay value of an early 2011 15" MacBook Pro. No special options here, it was the $1800 model. It's in pristine aesthetic condition as it's been in a Speck "case" and has a leatherish wrist guard. No issues with it at all. Would come with the original packaging and everything as well.

    Because it originally shipped with Snow Leopard, I believe when I reformat that's the OS that I'll ship it with unless there's a recovery option forLion that's not tied to my Apple account. As result, I don't think iLife will be on it unless it came on discs that I never looked at when I bought it.

    So while I'm at it, any advice on selling it in terms of data and stuff? Thanks in advance!!

    Not trying to be a smartass, but surely if you want the eBay value you could look on...eBay?

    As for the OS, I'd install Lion. That way, the latest version of OS X is an option, and the new user can have it. If they want to reinstall, they can get Snow Leopard from the discs.

    Finally, iLife will be included on the Applications disc.

    $1,200 - $1,000

    I bought a refurb on this model a few months back for $1349
