    I'm looking to sell my Mid 2010 MacBook Pro. I have upgraded the hard drive to 640GB, and its running the latest OSX 10.8. Its got a full coverage accidental warranty until Jan 2013 through Best Buy.

    Just wondering, how much would this machine be worth? Where would the best place to sell it be. I know, there used to be Buy/Sell forums here, but I cannot find them, maybe someone can point me in that direction!

    Thanks all for the responses. :cool:

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), 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.

    What are the actual specs of your MBP? The HDD upgrade is nice, but how much RAM have you installed?

    Even though you are offering the machine with OS X 10.8, you can't really do that since the OS license for both Lion and Mountain Lion is tied to an individual's AppleID. And since the original OS on that machine was OS X 10.6.xxx, you'll have to restore it to that point and then offer it up for sale.

    It has 4GB of RAM, but thinking to upgrade to 8GB for about $45, from my research.
