    I am looking to sell my unibody macbook. Technically a Macbook but is basically a 13 inch Macbook Pro. Would sort of price should I look to sell for? I have upgraded the ram and hd since purchase. The battery is also basically new as it was replaced recently by apple (50 cycles, 100% health). The macbook itself is in very good condition with hardly any noticeable blemishes. Any advice on what to sell for would be much appreciated! It is a UK purchased Macbook so looking for UK price advice please!

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook5,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
    Number of Processors: 1
    Total Number of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 3 MB
    Memory: Crucial 2x2GB DDR3
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    HDD: 1TB Western Digital Scorpio Blue

    Thanks guys!

    I think the rarity of that macbook might add a little bit of value to it, but the fact that it is an older model with a C2D and a 250GB HDD I think will really limit the money you'd get. I think perhaps 350-380 seems reasonable.

    It has a 1TB HDD, although I guess what you said still applies as this won't drastically increase the price.

    Cheers!

    go on fleabay and go to advanced search then check completed listings and enter your mac in the search box & it will tell you all the models the same and what they sold for :)

    Actually I somehow missed the HD size and a 1TB HDD will increase the price(at least in my opinion) maybe up to 400 now because of that. Do you also have the original box/packaging/accessories?

    What currency you looking at?

    There's a site that gives estimates on mac values, can't remember but I found it via this forum anyway.

    450 max on it, ebay would fetch you a higher price but then again you have to pay for ebay/paypal fees and of course than danger of a scam.
