    Might have to sell the one in my signature...
    (Bills)
    Anyways it is worth a lot and I also have 3 year AppleCare on it

    Any suggestions?

    Ebay will take way too much from the sale (400$ or so!)

    Unless you picked it up direct from a store on the release day, you are very likely still in your 14 day refund/exchange window. There's always the chance you could make a profit selling on Craigslist to some poor schmuck but I assume for a laptop this high tech and expensive, any potential buyer will know the price points.

    I would go local. I listed my old PC on Gumtree to try to sell it, got no interest for a couple of weeks then suddenly had a few people message me about it. One of whom went through to buy it. If you wait, selling locally can pay off.

    Why not just return it to Apple?

    Ahh read your old posts, it was a free replacement / upgrade from Apple. Lucky you.

    Still unacceptably high to take that much away from your profits, as I see it. That's why I sold my old PC locally.

    You will still have to pay the credit card processing fees to Paypal, with no maximum, if that's how you accept payment. That would be 2.9% of the overall transaction value (with shipping).
