    I'm curious what my MBP is worth. I'm thinking of selling it to get a rMBP. I've checked various websites but am uncertain to their accuracy. If anyone could help me estimate the value that would be great.

    Macbook Pro 13" Early 2011
    2.7 GHZ Intel Core i7
    8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB
    Samsung 830 128 SSD
    WD Scorpio Blue 1 TB
    Power cable (x2)
    Original Box, manuals, etc.

    I don't know if I should pull the Scorpio and put the superdrive back in, or not?

    Let me know what you guys think is a fair price to sell it on Craiglist, or even on here. I'd probably be selling it in early August. Thanks.

    If a Mod feels this thread is more appropriate in the For Sale section as a Feeler, please feel free to move it.

    I would pay somewhere between $600 to $700 for it.

    AppleCare?

    Regardless, you would get more money replacing the SuperDrive and selling the Samsung SSD separately.

    Very true, a used stock MBP from that year sell for about $600 to $700 with or without the upgrades.

    Applecare has expired. That's a good point regarding the drives. I'll probably just leave in the 1 TB Blue and add the superdrive back and sell the Samsung SSD or keep it to add to my future purchase.

    Yes, agreed - the same applies for cars and computers.
    Sell it stock (or as close to stock as possible) and sell the parts separately.

    Before removing the SSD, run a benchmark so you can show potential buyers that it's still performing well.

    Is running the 32-bit tryout version of Geekbench enough? The Geekbench score was as below. When looking at the comparison chart for this MBP it appears to be in the high-end (for 32-bit) so I don't think wasting the money for the 64-bit would help. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I have a similar config, my geek bench was 7029

    IIRC, didn't it come with a 500gb? You could even put the original back in, I doubt you'd get much premium for the 1TB

    I'd put the 500GB original HDD back in if I could. However, I threw it into an enclosure and gave to my father as a portable backup.

    Swap it out again for pops! Then at least you'll keep the 1tb in the family! :D
