    I got this Macbook my freshman year of high school and I graduate in a few weeks and I will be getting a new macbook for college. My question is what do you guys think I could get for it? I tend to not use websites like nextworth or gazelle because they always seem to low ball you, so I'm looking for a real world price.

    The specs are:
    2.1 GHZ Core 2 Duo
    120GB HDD
    4GB OWC ram (bought in 2010)
    Battery has less then 200 cycles on it, so it lasts about 4 hours on middle brightness

    What's a good price? It's it good condition for going through high school, its got a lot of those swirl like scratches (like on an old car) But the inside including the screen are all perfect.

    Mac2sell.net is about as real as you can get. 350 dollars is probably what you can get for it.

    Thanks, I'll check them out.

    EDIT: Mac2Sell quotes my price as $400, so that's what I'll ask.

    I'd say $350 would be about right... most of the ones on eBay run from $300 to $400. Given that your MacBook isn't Mountain Lion compatible, you may not be able to get the best price for it after Mountain lion is released, because it won't be totally supported by Apple anymore.

    mac2sell is always way high. If you can get 400 all the power to you but realistically you're looking closer to 300

    But that price is estimated for a like new condition w/o scratches. You indicated you have some scratch. And dont forget about wear and tear. Keyboard conditions, rubber underneath and all. Plus, it is old.
