    I have a mid-2011 MBA, 128GB SSD, 1.6GHz i5 with 4 GB of RAM, very lightly used. Battery appears to be in good shape (holds a charge, etc.). What would be a fair price? Mac2Sell says $610. eBay shows selling prices (for sold computers) between $400 and $700(!).

    $400 was the first number that came to mind. With only 128 GB storage and 4 GB RAM I think you'd be lucky to get more, absent Applecare or other bits that add real value.

    I would disagree with the $400 quote - at least $500

    Thanks for the replies! The $600 suggested by Mac2Sell seemed high to me, and $400 is lower than the selling price for other mid-2011 MBAs with less memory/storage on eBay, so $500 seems like a good compromise.

    Is there a way to check the battery health, see if it still holds a full charge, etc.?

    The equivalently specced machines to yours averaged about $480. Many of them appeared to come from a single seller, who offered two years of tech support, which will add at least some value.

    If it were me, I'd list it at $495 and take anything over $400. You also don't say if you have the box, if there is any Applecare remaining, etc. also, 11" or 13"? I've assumed 13".
