    Bought a rMBP when the late 2013 models were released and I rarely use my iMac.
    Need help with coming up with a reasonable price for it. Specs and details are below.

    10/10 condition, slightly used, no dents or scratches

    3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
    8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRam
    1TB Fusion Drive
    2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX
    Magic Trackpad
    Apple Wireless Keyboard & User’s Guide
    Accessory Kit
    Original Packaging

    AppleCare Protection Plan till December 09, 2015 (paid $124.61)

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

    Apple has the same iMac with the same Specs, for $1949 on the Refurb Store which means you should price yours a couple hundred less, Maybe $1600 or so, start at $1700 but don't go less than $1600

    Maxed out machines are sometimes hard to sell, and you can get one refurbished for $1950.

    I looked on eBay "sold" listings, and there are insane fluctuations in price. Your computer sold from about $1650-$2200. I would start at $2000 (including shipping). Just hold out for a few weeks, as both the seller's and buyer's market is small. If you don't get a hook, try $1900. If you want to get a price above $1800, you will probably have to wait a while.
