    Hi guys,

    I couldn't find a section for getting prices to sell my MBA so forgive me if im in the wrong place.

    I have a 3 month old 13" MBA low end model with 128GB SSD i am looking to sell it to get a rMBP, i paid 1100 Pound for it and was wondering what you guys reckon i could get for it?

    Its is is perfect condition like it has just be taken out of the box!

    Thanks is advance!

    Is it a 2011 or 2012 model? You'll most likely take a big hit just like a new car driven off the parking lot.

    Not according to some people that want pretty much the same price as a new MBA for a 2011 model.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what you may be able to charge. Then adjust your price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

    Do you have enough posts for the marketplace? I find the marketplace to be a good place to figure pricing and even to sell.

    Also, check refurb.me for refurbished prices. Since these machines come with a year of Applecare and are really technically new, I think taking 10% off the refurb price is a good and fair price.

    Good luck with your sale!

    No, they don't. They're about halfway there.

    Yeah, sometimes they get lucky to and do get that for people that do not do their homework.

    ----------

    If you're iMac is 2011 model you can use it as a display too. I understand where you're coming from since I have that combination as well.

    800 seems like a reason price for that, considering it's only 3 months old.
