I just saw an almost like new 2.33GHz model with nothing special included from one and half years and two (almost three) generations ago go for $1800 on eBay. How do Macs keep up such good resale value? For $200 more someone could've gotten a new 2.4GHz MBP with an 8600M GT, a refurbished model, or waited for the Montevina refresh. That sounds great to be able to sell a one and a half year old year-old Mac and only pay $200 more to get a completely new one that will be a lot faster (for games and 3D modeling at least). How do Macs keep up such good resale value, even with cheaper refurbished models and similar $2k models?
