    I'm thinking about selling my MBP, and have no idea about the secondary market prices for these things. Was wondering if someone could help me out? That way I can at least have a good starting price/idea for selling on ebay etc.


    Early 2011 MBP, basically mint condition
    Intel i7 2GHz
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    500GB HDD 7200RPM
    Intel HD Graphics 3000 512MHz
    OS X Lion 10.7.5
    15.4" HD screen, anti-glare (the best one they offered prior to Retina display)
    15 months of Applecare remaining

    An estimate/rough price would be really helpful :)

    And whilst we're on the subject - are there any better avenues than ebay to sell apple products?

    I usually look at recently completed auctions on eBay to get a feel for pricing.

    I would say....

    between $1150-1250 USD. Good care of the machine, remaining AppleCare and no cosmetic and functional issues can help in the price.

    If selling through an online site, factor in shipping costs/fees.

    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 a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.
