    Hey there,
    Last night I sold a 2009 mac mini (base model paid $550) that I upgraded with the 320gig HDD out of my MBP and 2gig of ram that I bought on craigslist for $15 bucks.
    I sold it for $750 since it had the same specs as the one Apple sells for $799.99+tax. I bought it in May and it was in pristine condition and it OS 10.6 on it, so he got a great machine.
    Anyways, should I feel guilty that I actually made money on a computer that I have used for the last few months and do you feel that he paid a fair price?

    thanks.

    Why should you feel guilty? You saved the guy 50 bucks + taxes so he got a good deal and you really just spent $575 and got use out of a machine, then made 200 on it.

    I think you made a great deal (hahaha like the TV show :p)

    I think you made a good deal and didn't screw over the buyer. You shouldn't feel guilty.

    You made a fair return on the time you spent, and your knowledge on how to do the upgrades. The buyer saved money by not having to pay a shop to do the same things. If you didn't misrepresent the machine, then you are fine. Enjoy your profits.

    Thanks guys !

    He shouldn't have any trouble with apple care since I used apple ram and an apple HDD right ? I didn't break anything while I was in there.
