    Just wondering what sort of prices people managed to sell their 2010 MacBook Pros for since the 2011 models have been released.

    1. What country are you in ?

    2. What Model did you own / size and/or any mods

    3. What price did you manage to get and how much did you loose/gain [include all taxes ect. in the figure for total price you paid, only for the MacBook Pro not any other accessories ect. you purchased]

    4. Where did you end up selling your MacBook Pro

    5. When did you sell your MacBook Pro : Before or after the announcement of the 2011 models

    I managed to sell my 2010 17" i7 2.66 standard config for 2250$ lost about $450 [bought at a good buy price because of several faulty iMacs last year]. I am in Australia, sold 1 hour before the official 2011 MacBook Pro release..Phew.

    I would love to hear from others and find out what the resale on these machines was like before and after the 2011 update.

    2010 13" MBP base model

    Third party 500 GB HDD upgrade

    Bought it during the 'back to school' event and sold the iPod, so ~1180 total + $80 HDD

    Sold for $1050, 2 weeks ago. Picked up an 11.6" Air /w 4GB + accessories for less than that, so it was worth it.

    2010 13" MBP 2.4Ghz added 8GB ram ($63)
    -
    I bought at Microcenter for $999+tax brand new, sold for $1100 Craigslist about 2 weeks before new MBP announcment. So plus $70 for having the computer 6 months and being able to get the new new.
    ----
    Also more recently I bought a 2010 15" i7 2.66Ghz MBP on Ebay with hi-res AntiGlare and 8GB Ram for $1550 shipped. Loved it, but decided I wanted 2011 because I have a Mac addiction.
    -
    Sold it via Craigslist for $1700 cash last week. So +$150 for a little time wasted toward getting a 2011 but at least I knew how the screen looked! (amazing).

    Did not purchase AppleCare for either machines.

    2. Originally 15" 2010 2.4Ghz 4GB RAM, 320GB Hard Drive, High-Res (Paid $1600)... Sold it with 8GB RAM and 1TB Hard Drive (RAM and drive were a gift for changing control arms on a car).
    3. I sold it for $1600 with an Apple remote so minus $20.
    4. Sold on Craigslist
    5. Sold 2 weeks after announcement of 2011 model.

    Ended up getting:
    2011 15" with 2.2GHz, 128GB Apple SSD, and High-res glossy screen.
    Added Crucial C300 256GB SSD and 8GB GSkill RAM PC310666.

    Nope. Nothing is sure in this day and age and depends on the economy at the time, the demand in your area, and the changes made to the system. If there are major changes (case redesign, faster everything, better battery and display panel) and/ or a lower base price accompanies it, then we don't know what the floor will be for used. Most people would eat the extra $200 for a measurable change and buy new versus old. Now if things stay relatively the same, then it is quite possible.
