    Hi guys,

    I've just moved into a new phase of university which requires me to have a laptop, so I'm looking at replacing my old iMac with an Air.

    So... How much do you think I could get for my iMac? (And what's the best avenue for selling it?) Bear in mind that I am in Australia, however the USD and the AUD are basically at parity so valuations should be pretty similar.

    My iMac's specs:
    -21.5", Late 2009.
    -3.06Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
    -ATI Radeon HD 4670 256MB
    -1TB HDD
    - APPLE CARE (*Until May 2013*)

    Thanks guys, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay, or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what you may be able to charge. Then adjust your price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

    Yea thanks, I forgot to add that in my original post. Mac2Sell gave me an estimated value of $800 AUD (so basically $800 USD with current exchange rates)... But that doesn't include applecare.
