    Anyone have experience with selling a similarly configured mid-2011 iMac and how much they were able to get for it?

    I would visit Apple's refurbished section get a better idea of the price you should ask for. They're selling the same model as yours but with a 256 GB SSD and 4GB RAM refurbished for $2,039. Hope that helps at all.

    In the SF/Sacramento area they can fetch around 1600-1800 as of this past February. I'd figure you could probably still get ~1500. I'd doubt much more than that though - I'm starting to see 2012 (i7, Fusion, etc) show up ~1800-2100 with intermittent frequency.

    Your advantage is it still stand out as a i7 with a SSD which should get you a reasonably quick sale, but don't be mislead by those still asking 1200+ for 2010-2011 i5 27". Those doesn't appear to be selling - remember posting on CL are for unsold items - so the ones that are selling are likely selling for below the lowest prices you see on CL. However, do your research and make sure your not pricing against a low price that is a scam (including people who make fake ads to say "well its for sale by this person for XXX below yours".

    Thank you, both. I think I'll aim for $2,000 to start with on Craigslist. It's definitely a high performance iMac in great condition with the added bonus of still being under AppleCare and the SuperDrive for those that need it for their business, like photographers.
