    MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011)
    2.2 GHz Intel Core i7
    512 GB SSD
    16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 (2x 8 GB)
    Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB
    AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024 MB

    It's kind of beat up -- scratches, a tiny dent, bumps on corners, but nothing that would influence functionality.

    Looking for prices in USD.

    I'm a noob, so please forgive me for originally posting this in the MacBook Pro forum. I figured this forum would be more appropriate.

    Welcome to MacRumors. When you say 'refurbished' what do you mean? Who has done the refurbishing? Be mindful before tossing that word around when advertising your unit. A quick check on eBay of units similar to yours, reveals the going asking prices seem to be in the $600-$700 range, but being "kind of beat up", you might get a little less, that's of course assuming everything is in working order.

    To get a more accurate idea of your laptop's resale value, I'd scour the internet or check asking prices for similar equipment in your local area. Best of Luck!

    Condition is going to hurt price - in good condition probably 800 with sad and ram.

    Radeongate is crippling the pricing on these machines. Also you should be using 1333MHz RAM rather than 1600MHz for best stability.

    I think you could get up to $800 for that on eBay if you got lucky, and I wouldn't go less than $600 ---IF--- either it's already has the logic board replaced under the recall OR it's already been upgraded to Yosemite and there have never been any video problems and no other damage.

    Plenty of people (like me) won't care about dents, but time is running out with the logic board extended warranty program and I'd be worried I'd have problems getting it covered with the non-standard RAM configuration. But the high RAM & SSD would be a great draw if I were confident I didn't have to worry about it.
