    Thinking about going with something smaller and lighter like the rMBP. How much do you think I should ask for my 17"? Here are the specs:

    Early 2011 model
    2.2GHz Intel quad-core i7
    16GB Crucial RAM
    512GB Crucial M4 SSD
    High-res glossy screen (1920x1200)
    AppleCare until 4/4/2014

    It's in excellent shape. No signs of wear at all except on the bottom cover.

    I'd also include a few accessories, like all original items, a USB 3.0 ExpressCard, the original 750GB HD and 4GB RAM, and an optical drive to HDD kit.

    Not trying to sell it here, just wondering what you guys think I should ask. Would $2799 be fair given the condition, upgrades, accessories, and AC?

    Thanks :)

    Depends on where you will sell it - CL in a huge market or eBay you best bet.

    You need to find a large market b/c it will be difficult to find someone who values all these upgrades. It may take some far as price goes it may be better to sell the RAM and SSD separate.

    a good asking price would be in the $2100-2300 range, with all the extras you mention to sweeten the deal.

    If selling through a online site, dont forgot to factor in shipping costs/fees

    Mac2Sell says I should ask $2690, but I don't want to just go off of that. Since it does have AppleCare as well, would $2499.99 be fair if I put up on eBay?

    I live in Chicago so listing it on Craigslist wouldn't be an issue either, but I prefer eBay.
