    Hi there!
    So recently got this computer because my old macbook had some issues and the apple store replaced it with this one, but now I'm thinking of going with a completely different set up.
    Anyway the laptop is this one:
    http://www.amazon.com/Apple-Macbook...A50O/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1333749680&sr=8-3
    Amazon price - $2,470

    http://store.apple.com/us/product/G0NM5LL/A
    Refurb price - $2,200

    but came with a 750gb 7200rpm hdd
    and the apple care expires April 3, 2013 (It's practically brand new)

    I was wondering if $2000 is a fair price for this computer? Also does anyone have any advice for selling on ebay, since I've never sold anything there before and I'm a little worried after hearing a few horror stories. Or maybe even another website good for selling computers.
    I would've liked to post this to the macrumors marketplace, but I don't have anywhere near 250 posts so I can't do that.

    Thanks!

    The local Craigslist typically cannot be beat for selling Apple hardware...people always looking to snatch it up, and usually over pay at that. eBay has always been good to me...you could try a few other forums, but most have requirements such as a certain number of posts (as is here) before you are able to buy, sell, or trade.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay, or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what you may be able to charge. Then adjust your price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.
