    I plan on selling my 2009 MBP 13" soon and am going to sell it with a new 500GB drive I have and keep the stock drive. My question is, will the stock 160GB Hitachi drive in the 2009 MBP fit inside the 2010 MBP? regardless it be 13" or 15"? I'm assuming yes but want to be sure.

    thanks!

    Yes, it will fit. However, aren't you losing space, since I believe all the current MBP's start at 250 GB?

    To address both posters. I want to increase the value for resale for my MBP and I plan on getting a bigger HD with the new drive. I'm selling the MBP 13" with the original box and everything included in it. Also a incase case and speck clear case. The specs for the Mac is 4GB RAM, 500GB HD, and 2.26GHz. Is $1000 too much to ask for?

    the processor is too low right? so probably 700-800?

    I don't think adding the hard drive will increase the value enough to purchase a new drive. I'd say your best bet is throw the 160GB back in. I sold my mid09 with 4GB RAM for $850. Had it for $900 but people from craigslist like to be a PITA and haggle after a price is agreed. I bought my mid10 for $1050 shipped to Cali. Good luck with getting $1000 though.

    Sold mine through CL. Best way to sell especially if you live in big enough city... CL might be tough in the small towns. And prev poster had it priced about right. Start at 9 and don't take lower than 850.

    great that sounds alright, i guess. I mean not what I expected but I will take your advice and price accordingly. eBay not a good idea for this tho?

    I personally don't trust eBay or PayPal. Yeah they have they're buyer/seller protection...I sold a $100 gift card on eBay, 40 days later buyer filed a claim saying they didn't get the item. I sent PayPal the tracking number and a printout saying the gift card got used local to the buyer. PayPal did have buyer protection..took $100 back from me. Fun way to lose $200.

    I prefer face to face transactions and the buyer handing me cash. Also no fees with CL either.. and no shipping which is less hassle for me.
