    Hey guys, I really want to downgrade to a mba 13.3' now that I realized I have no need for a larger screen, and hdd capacity. I was thinking of selling it on cash4macbooks.com and was wondering if anyone here knows its legit? I think it is but does not hurt to get any feedback from yall.

    1,160 is not so bad. ebay would take like 25% along with paypal and that's hundreds off ur sell price.

    If you're patient you can get a better deal on craigslist.

    It appears to be like many other sites like this. Commonly, they perform something along the lines of a "bait and switch" where they quote you a good price, you send in the machine and then they nitpick over every and any last issue, and subtract money from your quote while doing so.
    If it's like a few of these other sites, before you know it they'll call you up saying they can only pay $500 because of a 2 millimeter long scratch on the bottom.

    Craigslist is the better bet. Just ask for cash and meet in a public place like starbucks.

    The african scammers are pretty easy to weed out, just don't accept anything but cash payment, and demand to meet the person.
    No checks, western union, and especially no paypal.

    It's your Mac, you can do as you like.

    I just punched the details of my 6 week old MBP in there and it offered me $1200 for on $2000+ worth of laptop. That's excluding any sales taxes etc. Not even a used car loses that % of it's value that quickly. I wouldn't take less than $1700 for it, even in a fire sale.

    Well you guys scared me from selling it to them. I guess I will just keep my macbook pro. Perhaps in the future I will use more cpu-intensive tasks.
