    I have a MINT condition Macbook Pro (2012) with charger & applecare.

    Is my asking price reasonable? $800. I'm surprised I haven't gotten many inquiries about it yet.


    -2.5 GHz i5
    -4GB RAM
    -320 GB HDD
    -Applecare care till April 2016

    Are you sure your unit has a 320GB HDD? A quick search shows it came with a 500GB 5400rpm drive.

    For what you paid for it, $800 may seem reasonable to you, however the stumbling block may be the fact it's a neglected line headed for discontinuation, non-retina, and with relatively low (and non-flash) storage.

    Update your ad with the correct size of storage, and say, $100 lower asking price and see if you're getting any responses. Good Luck!

    As mentioned above, the 320GB hard drive has not been offered since 2010. It probably looks like a scam.

    Actually, the base Early 2011 13" 2.3 GHz i5 came with a 320 GB drive.

    OP - $800 strikes me as high. I personally wouldn't pay that much for it - more like $650-700 if it comes with box, etc.

    Darn, I knew I was being lazy on my research there. Thanks for the correction.

    Add your music library to it and a copy of word if you have it.

    I do that and always get a great price on the Macs I sell. All usually 1-2 years old like the one your selling. Tho in Boston more people use Craiglist. I don't know where your location is.
