    A buyer was ready to give me $730 for my mid-2010 MBP with 8GB RAM and 250GB stock hard-drive. I backed out and decided to just upgrade my MBP with a SSD hard-drive. :) My reason for backing out was that it would have cost me about $700 more to get the MBA I want vs. $130 more to upgrade the hard-drive. I chose to save my money for now.

    If you are in the US, compare your price to what you see on CraigsList.

    It's priced fairly, not priced to move. The 8GB RAM helps, but the 250GB HDD is on the small side. C2D laptops are hitting the steeper part of the depreciation curve, and it will get even steeper next year with Haswell. If you look hard, you can find SandyBridge cMBP-13s for close to that $700 price. If you want to move it than you have to price it more aggressively, say $550-$600. Also make sure that you include a very full description and good quality photos in your ads.

    Here's where I have a problem...
    I don't show a Late 2010. I show a Mid 2010 which that machine matches, next jump is Early 2011 which that machine doesn't.

    If it is a Mid 2010, 1333 ram means little, as the machine bus speed is 1066
    Hard drive is small. It was a $1200 machine in April 2010 and while the pricing isn't out of line, it's not priced to move. I'd drop to $650 - $675 to get below the psychology of "$7x

    Mine was a late 2009 model with the smaller HD and I got $650.00 for it. I just went online and looked up what used were ones selling from used retailers with my configuration.

    I agree that good quality photos are important. In the past, when I have listed my Macbook Pro on Craigslist I had pictures that I had taken with my phone and not gotten much of a response. When I relisted it, I had my son, who is a much better photographer, take the pictures and I sold it within a day with a lot more interest. I was surprised how much of a difference it made.

    If you can't sell it then you're asking too much. Not many wants a 2 year old computer. At that price, I would rather spend a little more and go current model refurb.

    2011 Refurbs are $799 - when they are available

    I'd go with $650 and see what happens. It might have to go all the way to $600, you can get the 2009 models for $500.
