    As the title says, the screen of my 2015 13" rMBP has multiple hairline cracks, it is the base model that I purchased a little over a year ago. Everything still works as I am currently plugging it into an external monitor as a "desktop." If I were to sell this laptop today as is, how much do you guys think I can get out of it? I'm trying to just sell it and use the money to fund towards another laptop, don't really have the time to fix it myself.

    Find used prices for your laptop, then subtract the cost of the display. Though I can't give you a ballpark figure, that number won't be very high.

    Honestly, I'd just continue to use it as-is. Think of it as a custom Mac Mini with a battery :D

    You can buy a new display from iFixit for $399.00. Of course you have the install price on top of that (guessing $75 to $100). So take $500 off the non-broken price and that's probably what you can get for it.
