    I'm not trying to sell it here, I'm just trying to get a idea of how much you guys think I can get for the below. I was considering getting a new MacBook to replace it and I'm trying to figure out if it's worth the attempt.

    This is what I have:
    MacBook Air 1.1 (Custom Order)
    -1.8 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
    -80GB
    -Extended Apple Care
    -Two Chargers
    -Ethernet Adapter
    -Monitor Adapter
    -Superdrive
    -Incase Neoprene sleeve

    NO scratches, dead pixels, or any problems. I babied it BIG time. It's a great machine, but I need a bit more for designing.

    I just bought a Macbook Air just like you are listing except mine is the 1.6 and no sleeve. I paid $850 and it was in Very good condition, like new. There was another one for sale in this area for the same price. Hopes this helps.:)

    I sold a macbook air with the exact same contents last week. It was also in perfect condition. The only difference was that it was 1.6ghz. I got 850 euro.

    Jeez, if that's the going rate I'm bummed. I've been thinking about selling my rev a to fund a rev b, but it's probably not worth it...

    Can get a refurbished from Apple, like new, with one year warranty for $999 USD. Also, can get the original $3099 priced 1.8 w/64 GB SSD for $1299.

    Really ruins resale value of the original MBA when Apple lowered the price so much.

    Still worth it to get out of the original and upgrade to the rev B MBA.

    Scottsdale if you could read correctly he wants a Macbook not a Macbook Air.

    Take my advice, sell and upgrade while you can. The Macbook is a much better machine then Macbook Airs, Rev A or B!

    Mshepherd if you could read properly Scottsdale was talking to Brudy not the OP, and he was explaining how when Apple lowered the refurbished price it caused the value of used Revision A Macbook Airs to go down.

    Try posting locally on Craigslist you may be able to get a little more. Thats what I did when I was selling my MBP and I was easily able to sell it $300-$400 over what I was able to get online via forums and eBay.
