Is it a fair price?

  1. Yes, its just collecting dust anyways

  2. No, you're better off selling on Ebay or Craigslist.

    Since I got my 2016 MacBook Pro in April my old 2011 has been in a closet collecting dust. Initially I installed OSX server on it but found myself not really using the features and its just been idling for months now. Just as a curiosity I checked out what Gazelle would give me for it. They came up with $280, I think its fair since its beat up a little and is goin on seven years old. What do you think? I wanna use the money for the new 4K Apple TV.

    I think 280 is fair if it hasn't been upgraded with more ram and it's got the original mechanical drive.

    I got $400 for a 2011 13" with 16GB of memory and a 256 GB SSD a year or so ago. I think you are getting more than a fair price.

    its a maxed out 13 inch with the i7, 16GB RAM, and it had 2 1TB SSDs in RAID but those aren't going with it. so ill just put a spinner in there.

    I mean, I think that is more then fair. Its over half a decade old, and its two whole generations behind. But why not just check out what the trending prices are on eBay?

    Trade in prices are always much lower than retail, as they'll be selling it retail so need to make a profit. If you're happy, they provide a convenient way to get rid of a product, without the hassle that comes with selling and dealing with that. So you have to think of it that way, if you sell it for $300 when it retails at $500, it'd probably cost $50 in sales taxes/listing, then you might have a none-payment, dealing with questions or returns etc. All that could potentially be worth more than $150 of your time...

    Anyway as others have said, old laptop so it's fine. Not sure why anyone would buy something that old but there's obviously a market for it somewhere.
