How much would this deduct from selling price?

Found this dent from my MacBook Air this morning, no idea how this happened...

But now, it's put me in the mood to sell it to be honest.

How much would you expect I'd get with this small dent, which doesn't affect usability whatsoever.

Looking to sell on eBay UK this week possibly.

Thanks

Update

It's on eBay now. Selling at the price of £660.

RRP £849 in the UK, as we all know.

The typical second hand price for a non-damaged one of this spec and revision is £700 , give or take.

I would include an eBay link, but I don't want to break the forum rules and have people think I'm trying to advertise..

But is this price reasonable for the damage you can see above?

Many thanks

I would keep it if I were you, unless the computer itself isnt cut out for your needs. This way you can enjoy your perfectly working machine and once time passes, smalls dings like those are expected when selling it and will not hurt the resale value all that much. If you got your mind set in selling it, i guess a 50-100 discount is more than fair.

Apologies for neglecting my thread.

I sold the Air after a day on eBay at £660.

The tape was to prevent the pads from wearing down.. Never again, it makes the Air too slippy and easy to slide of a table etc.

I'm now using a new 2012 MacBook Pro 13" (and I bought a Speck shell to prevent such damage again - and it covers the pads!)
