My friend wants to sell his Mid 2013 mint fully loaded Air i7, 16 gigs mem, 500gigs. What's a fair market price for this kid of laptops ? I want to make him an offer but I have no clue.

Thanks in advance.

If it has 16gb, it's not a MacBook Air. The maximum is 8gb. ;)

Also, you didn't say whether it's an 11" or 13" model. Sorry, I can't really help. I have a 2013 11" i7/8gb/512gb MacBook Air and still love it, will probably keep it until it dies. A few months ago, B&H Photo was blowing out their stock of 2015 11" i7/8gb/512gb MBAs for around $1000 brand new. This was an exceptional deal that a few forum members were able to grab. When they were available, Apple was offering 2015 refurbs of this configuration for about $1300.

The 11" MBA is harder to find in this configuration these days since it was discontinued. That might mean they sell at a premium to the 13" model, don't really know. Also consider the battery however. If it is still the original then you should budget for a new one as it may be nearing the end of its useful life. Last time I checked, Apple will replace the battery for around $130.

13", 16GB of RAM, $2900? Sounds like a 13" MacBook Pro to me mate :)

Does your friend live outside the US?

Unless this is an 8GB model and you are outside the US where Apple prices are upwards of double what they are in the States, I agree with MultiFinder that it sounds like a 2013 MBP with retina display...

That doesn't sound like a MBA to me (and I am writing this on a 2014 CTO 11" MBA, Core i7, 8 GB RAM, and 512 GB SSD). The MBA doesn't come with 16 GB RAM, and certainly didn't in 2013 when I ordered a CTO 13" MBA (and would most certainly have splurged on 16 GB RAM had such been available).
