Don't you have a 6770M too?

$2500 is way too high, you can buy a faster, brand new one for that price. I'd say maybe $1800, but wait for a couple more posts yet.

Im new to Mac but 2500 bucks seems awefully high when you can buy a brand new one with better specs for that.

I would say around 1600 - 1800 maybe?

1000 - 1200 seems more reasonable. Have you look at mac2sell?

I entered your specs on buybackworld and sellyourmac. You didn't indicate the size of your hard drive.

If you're going to sell your computer directly like on Craigslist or eBay, Mac2Sell pricing is really low.

BuyBackWorld is a legitimate company if you do not feel like using a peer to peer platform like craigslist or ebay. They send you a free padded box to ship the macbook also. I sold my 2010 i7 macbook pro to them and got the cash (paypal payment) 2 days after they received it.

You aren't going to fetch anywhere close to $2,500. The latest processor always seems to be 2x faster making a laptop a year old obsolete. My rMBP depreciated over $800 in one year. Being a cMBP it is considered a model that doesn't exist anymore, greatly depreciates in value.

Good luck with sales.
