    I'm a grad student and I just bought a brand new Macbook (as you can see in my sig). Unfortunately, it's looking like I might not have enough money to pay for this semester and am thinking about selling my Macbook and buying something cheaper:( How much do you think I could get for this:

    1. Computer
    White Macbook 2.0Ghz
    60Gb hard drive
    2GB ram (installed after-market - I would include the original 256 sticks in the sale)
    Applecare 3-year Warranty
    Also: Power adapter, remote, manual, discs, etc.
    Note-this computer is like new: no whining, mooing, or scratches; just a few "markings" on the trackpad/"wrist" area that are barely noticeable and will probably wash off.

    2. Accessories
    Dell 2007 Widescreen monitor (just purchased, no dead pixels)
    Apple mini-DVi to DVi connector
    Apple "wired" keyboard
    Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse

    3. Software
    Microsoft Office Suite
    Windows XP Home Edition
    Accordance Bible Software (w/ Scholar's Set)

    4. Other
    STM Sleeve (the "Glove" - very convenient!)
    I might also throw in my 2GB Nano if the price is right.

    Any ideas on pricing?? With tax and everything this set-up cost well over $2000 w/ the Ed. discount. I also would include all the original packaging, manuals, and receipts. I would be willing to sell each item individually or as a set. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    You didn't read the first paragraph then? :rolleyes:

    mac4matt, you'd get near the original price, if it's mint.

    However, consider splitting some off from the package - sell the screen seperately, for example, and you may get more overall.

    If you paid Edu for the MB, you could end up selling it and making a profit. ;)

    He answered that above. I can't help you on how much you could get. Maybe have a look in the Marketplace for anyone willing to trade an iBook G4 + Cash.

    Thanks for the tip bigandy. At this point I'm thinking of possibly selling the Macbook, buying a used Mac mini and hooking it to the Dell, and fixing my windows laptop (needs a new hard drive).
