    I sold mine for £500 (I don't know what country you are in, so I haven't done a currency conversion) last year, but you need to knock more off because it is now another year older, say £420-400.

    Mine had 4GB, was in perfect condition, and I got an app from the Mac App Store that measured battery health. Mine was 97%. Providing figures like that gives the buyer confidence you have looked after the machine properly.

    Nah, not that old version of office.

    I'd probably say it's worth about 500 bucks, maybe a bit more if you're selling locally.
