    Bought a new unibody MBP about 7 weeks before they announced the new ssd size. I got the 128GB ssd and love it, but if I were to buy the new double sized ssd, any way I could sell the 128GB on e-bay? Do you folks think there would even be a market for it? I had no idea they would upgrade the specs so soon (not that I'm complaining...I applaud them for moving forward on any new technology). Thanks.

    I'm sure someone would buy it, it's not like it is an outdated technology.

    Of course you'd be able to sell it on eBay.
    Since it IS used, it won't get quite as much as a brand new one... but if it's going to be useless to you, any money is good money!
    Look up how much they sell for retail, then expect to probably get around maybe 60-70% for it if you're lucky.
    Just advertise it as used, but almost brand new, working perfectly, etc.
    Lots of people don't mind buying used things...just be clear and honest that it is almost new and works perfectly... you just want to upgrade to a larger capacity.
    Good luck!
