    I have a Mid-2009 Macbook Pro that I am planning on selling in order to get the new 2012 model (when / if it comes out). What will I be able to get for it after the new model comes out.
    Specs:
    Size: 13 Inches
    Processor: 2.26 GHz intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory: 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    Hard drive: A Seagate 500 GB Harddrive
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M

    The notebook is in fair condition, A few scratches and 2 dings. Everything works great, the LCD screen has one issue, when there is a black screen there is a white cloud like thing in the middle. Not that big of a deal. The entire system will be wiped clean and reformatted. In the long run I might keep the hard drive currently installed, I still have the original and will reinstall it (120 GB?).

    I've seen 200-300 from Apple to another website. What could I get if I sold it by myself.

    Whoops, sorry if this is in the wrong topic. I didn't really look through the threads just saw this category and thought it was suitable.

    I would say 700 is a good asking price to start with.

    eBay, Craigslist, Amazon maybe?

    Those are probably your best options. eBay and Amazon will reach a larger audience and are more secure than Craigslist, however Craigslist means the possibility of a local sell for cash. All are good options.
