    I have the base i7/ 256GBSSD /8GB RAM/ Nvidia G650M/Intel HD4000 rMBP 2012 15".

    I have a new battery in it (was replaced by Apple) with 127 cycles. I also have a new logic board (was replaced just because, hasn't had real issue with it).

    I have AppleCare until June, and overall I have no marks on the laptop itself, so it basically looks "like new" except for very minor scratches on the bottom (I use a hardshell case since day one). So what would be a fair price for it? $1000?

    You can sell higher, probably around the range of $1200-1500.

    It's sitting on Craigslist for 2 weeks already and nobody wants it for $1300. I guess I will start lowering it to $1200

    We're under the exact same circumstances, I'm trying to sell my macbook pro 2012 , 15" 256 gb SSD, Nvidia GPU and no one wants it for 1300 eur , even though they increased the price of the macbook by quite a big margin in europe :confused:

    I assume he answered using Australian pricing. Australian prices are higher in general even after factoring out GST and currency conversion rates. For reference, Apple charges $1469 refurbished, so I would certainly say less than that. i'm not sure how much less.

    It's kind of funny that 2012 rMBP is almost twice as strong than the maxed 13" 2015 rMBP but I sell it half the price (and about 10-15% less powerful than 2014 rMBP 15"). I sell it to gain probability, so I guess that's what one should lose to get the other.
