    I just got this in september, wasn't refurbished or anything. 13" non-retina, 500GB, basically the base model. I'll see if it can help finance an upgrade.

    You can get a good feel for that to ask by checking recently ended eBay auctions for a similar model.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), and Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc. You can also check the Apple refurbished store to see what similar models are selling for.

    ah ok, well it is in perfect condition, only 3 months old so it should sell for around $1k? I got it for $1200.

    I don't know, new ones can be had for $1k at Apple Store with educational/government discount. Also Best Buys runs sales on them often.

    Not an expert, but with Apple Care still good you may be able to do it. Advertise it at $1k and see what happens.
