    I'm looking to sell my 2013 iMac. Barely used. I only want to sell it cause I'm more in need of a laptop. I'm find that the standard "buy" sites just want to rip me off. The machine is in like band new condition. Aside from local classifieds are there any decent ways/sites to sell my machine to a private party?

    I've sold my iMac on eBay and did not have any issues.

    I bet you can do just fine on Criag's list, if your equipment is as advertised! More so, and not have to ship it for evaluation and then payment later.

    Another vote for Craig's List, I've sold some Apple products there and they're always sold within 12 hours.

    Yes, Craig's list has always worked best for me. Take the usual precautions - meet in public space, cash only - and you will be fine. Very nice not to need to worry about shipping.

    By the way, the "buy my Mac" sites are not ripping you off. They have a large overhead and cost of doing business, receive a lot of junk, and need to make a reasonable profit. It similar to the "dealer trade in" value on a used car vs. what you get by selling it directly to a new owner. Much easier, of course, to trade it in. But a little work will get you lots of extra $$$. I sell my old cars via Craig's list also.
