    Hi guys

    I am using the 2012 macbook retina 15" base model with 16 gb ram as mostly a windows machine.
    I saw that the new retina has the iris pro graphics card without the nvidia graphics card. As you know, the bootcamp drivers don't let me use the integrated graphics, so the new macbook retina would actually increase my battery life significantly.
    So my question is, where is the best place I can either sell my macbook or trade my macbook for the new one. How much do you think I can get for my macbook? It is in 'like new' condition.

    Thanks for your help!

    Well, the 2012 15" 8/256 MBP refurb is going for about $1450, so that will be a starting point for your asking price.

    So the 16gb ram does not really affect the resell value?

    Maybe +$100 for the 16MB RAM, usually added features don't increase resale 1:1 in value. But it will make it easier to sell vs a 8GB RAM machine. Prices really dropped on 2012's about $200-300 when 2013's came out.
