    I have a 4-month old MacBook Pro that I'm trying to sell but have no idea what a fair price would be.

    It's the current model, MC725LL/A which is the 17" MBP with i7 Sandy Bridge processor.

    Ram has been upgraded to 8GB. It has the 750GB standard HD. Standard glossy screen.

    Comes with OSX Lion that I purchased after I bought the laptop.

    It's in mint condition and has barely been used. Comes with all packaging, cables, discs, everything.

    I don't want to try to extract every last dollar out of the sale, I'm looking to sell it QUICKLY but don't want to get ripped off either. :D

    Any advice would be welcome, thanks!

    Mac2Sell recommends prices, that are a bit too high, thus you could meet in the middle or slightly above.
    1400 to 1600 is a good price, though you might get more, if you find the right buyer, whichever route you take.

    Someone else asked a similar question a week ago. He was selling his 17" 2.3 i7, 8GB RAM, 750GB HDD, Antiglare screen. His initial purchase price was 2649 British Pounds. I told him he should expect to get 1800-2200 for it. He ended up receiving 2150 Pounds.

    Judging by this and that your initial purchase price was roughly $2600. I say you should get 2000 for it, plus minus.!! It greatly depends on where you are selling it though.

    Around $1800-$2000 seems fair, no lower than $1650 however.

    If you're looking to sell it quick, that's a different story. If you had time, you could market Lion and 8GB RAM and maybe end up w/ $2,150 (before eBay fees).
