    I was hoping to get some help on figuring out how much to sell my Macbook Pro for. Its time to get a new one, I need something lighter and I' d like to sell my current pro, but I've had a hard time establishing a price for it. Thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated :)

    Its a 15 inch, Macbook Pro 6,2 (Mid- 2010)
    - 2.53 GHz Core i5 (I5-540M)
    - StdRAM: 4 GB
    - Storage: 500 GB (5400 RPM)
    - NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
    - VRAM: 256 MB
    - Anti-gloss screen option
    - Microsoft Office Mac
    - Adobe CS6

    The MBP's condition is extremely good. A couple scratches on the bottom from lifting it off my desk but aside from that the unibody is flawless. The thing works flawlessly still.

    Thanks

    For real... About $800-$1100. I would price high and ask for less every 2 weeks that it don't sell. Don't be quick to lower the price.

    Start at $1200 and go down $50 every 2 weeks till it doesn't sell.

    Price to sell would be about $750

    I would say.....

    $750-900, if the computer dont have cosmetic or functional issues. The software dont have use if you cant transfer it legally to new owner....

    Thanks everyone, I like the idea of starting around 1200 and going down $50 every week or until I get a reasonable offer. I didn't realize Macbook depreciated at a faster pace than BMWs lol.

    Well they hold their resale value better than any other computer. Then again, you are trying to sell a 3 year old machine.

    Yea I definitely understand. I feel like the bigger MBPs don't hold their value as well as the 13's, maybe its just me though. But once all was said and done taxes included it was a $2200 (ish) machine not including the software tossed into it, so getting 60% of what I paid for it 2.5 years ago is a a bit of a bummer, but hey what can you do right? lol
