2.3Ghz i5 Dual, 4GB RAM 1333, and 320GB HDD.

If say I were to sell with only the Mac, charger, and box, would it sell? And could I sell for $650-700?

The MacBook is in nearly perfect condition, there's only a single nick on the aluminum, behind the trackpad, beside the notch to open the macbook. No scratches or dents.

Any warranty remaining?

With no warranty, I'd say $550-600; if there is some warranty remaining perhaps $50 more.

The problem you'll have is twofold: it's not a retina and there are Mid-2012 13" MBPs selling in the range you're looking for. And the Mid-2012 versions have USB3 and significantly better integrated graphics.

No, my warrantee expired a long time ago.

If I could get some cheap 8GB of ram, how much would that be able to increase the value?

Not enough to matter, unfortunately.

You've got a good machine - it's probably worth more to you than anyone else.

If you're selling it to upgrade to a retina or other newer machine, understand there are/were a lot of people doing the same thing. And you're still going to be up against the two big challenges I mentioned previously - it's not a retina, and you're competing with a wide range of 13" non-retina MBPs. The Late 2011 model isn't that big a jump, but the Mid-2012 is, and has significant value relative to an Early or Late 2011, particularly with USB3 and improved graphics.

Then I guess selling will be a challenge...but wouldn't a 2012 Model sell for 800-1000, instead of the 600-700 I'm going for?

edit: How much do you think it would depreciate if I were to sell it later, after Broadwell? Or should I sell it now, and use an older computer for the few months until Broadwell?
