    Hey guys.

    I am selling my macbook pro 13 and cannot decide the best place. Is ebay good? The reason I am asking is that I know with a mac I am looking for a specific buyer. I am only selling mine to get a bigger one. I have a 13 now which I love, but its just too small for my graphic design work without my external.

    Any tips would be appreciated!

    (PS> I know the new ones just came out, so I will adjust my price accordingly. Is $800 USD shipped good?).

    selling or asking fro pricing info outside of the marketplace forum is against the forum rules.

    ebay is the best place pricewise. try craigslist for a fast sale.

    i`m actually looking to get an entry level laptop. what are your specs and how much do you think you`d be asking?

    Like flopticalcube said, selling/advertising is against the rules except in the marketplace.
    That being said, you can get more info about it through the use of the PMs.

    To the OP: try cragslist or ebay.

    you cant access the market place as a newbie. you need a certain amount of posts. When you have a unique number under your username you will be ready for marketplace

    as far as the post. Ebay is a great place to sell. Craigslist is good for a fast sale if you can avoid all the spambots trying to get you to ship it to africa etc..

    It's hidden, you don't yet have access. See Marketplace Rules.

    I would try Craigslist first. Deal in person, and in cash. In my opinion, less chance of problems than ebay.
