If I am posting in the wrong forum I'm truly sorry.

I stopped traveling for work and got a netbook for when I go on vacation so I want to sell my MBP and get a new 27'' iMac. What is a reasonable price to ask for my MBP since is pretty much fully loaded. Its a 15" and the specs are listed in my sig and I will also be including 2 1/2 years of Applecare (purchased in 06/09), 3 power adapters, and a TOM BIHN case.

I've been placing it on the local Houston craigslist but I'm only getting repossess from scammers sending fake PayPal emails. I just want to get enough money back to get a new iMac with the best processor possible and if at all possible some extra pocket change. I would also be willing to make some sort of trade but I have no idea where to go about doing that.

Thank you for any help you may have.

In my opinion, maybe something like 2300$ if you're lucky. All extras are expensive when you buy them but when selling they are almost worth nothing.

I agree with Hellhammer. I suppose you could always try at first a bit higher(like $2500 maybe) and see if you have any takers. In the end, you wil probably land at $2300 anyways. Good luck!
