    I just got a macbook pro 2.4 i5 two weeks ago and I was wondering how much could I resell the notebook for or what is a fair price? I see some on ebay for 1000$ but I'm not 100% sure if that seems fair.

    People have seen them on the refurb store in the low $900s

    The longer you wait the further the price will drop

    2 weeks isn't still within the return window?

    Ay best I'd think you'll get refurb pricing which last I looked was right about $950 US. That's a best case.

    It's 1020 on the apple site for refurbished. I can't return it because apple upgraded me to this model and i don't really feel I need it because it's too nice. I'm scared to drop it or break it. It's only 2 weeks old.

    I'm not use to owning such a expensive computer because my pervious macbook book was a used unibody white macbook I bought on ebay for a good price and was my first macbook.

    On ebay you'll get a good price, but pay costs. On here youll get a lower price, but no costs. Really just depends on what you want to do.

    So you are getting rid of it because you are rough on your laptops and don't want to ruin it?

    That doesn't even make sense why you can't return it. Go to the store, tell them the computer you need and exchange it. Why did you accept Apple's upgrade in the first place?

    Yeah I'm rough with my laptops. I accepted it because they were able to replace it with a brand new laptop.

    I want to resell the mac because I bought a mac that was really cheap and did not really want to worry about breaking the product. Now apple has gladly replaced my mac with a brand new pro and I don't feel I need the product so I'm planning on selling it because it is too nice. This is my first mac.
