Hey,

Not looking to make a deal, but just want to get your advice on the price for my MacBook that I'm considering selling.

Specs:

13" Mid June 2009 MacBook Pro with Yosemite
120 GB Samsung EVO SSD
750 GB Western Digital Scorpio Black 7200 RPM HDD
No DVD Drive since I have the HDD, but still have the drive around
8 GB RAM
2.26 Ghz Core 2 Duo Processor
Replaced Battery in November 2013. Still has about 80% capacity
Condition: Excellent
Comes with original box, charger, extension, etc.

Thanks.

2009? Well. I guess every amount you get for this machine above 200,- should be considered a huge win.

Thinking as a buyer, there is no way I would consider your machine. But if there is somebody who is really interested, that's great for you.

Good luck.

I wouldn't be as harsh as the guy above me. I think £350 would be reasonable. The trouble is really the CPU and the GPU. The P8400 has pretty crappy performance, and the nVidia graphics card isn't much to boast about either. Saying that, I imagine with the SSD it should run OK (my friend has a 2008 MacBook and that runs Yosemite nicely with an SSD).

However for the money you've spent upgrading it, I really wouldn't sell it, because what you'll get for it will be a bitter blow (I'm assuming you've had it a long time and become somewhat attached).

So just use it for light browsing, or basic coding, or when you're going out-and-about.

It's always there for a spare :)

Probably $250 or so.

There are a lot of much newer/faster machines for not much more.
