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
Parallels
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!

why sell?
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. ;)

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).
