    I'm trying to sell my MBP before the redesigned model is released and my notebook loses significant value. For how much should I sell it?

    Here are the specs:

    Apple MacBook Pro 15" (Early 2011)
    Intel Core i7 2.2 GHz Processor
    Corsair 8GB RAM 1333 MHz DDR3
    AMD Radeon 6750M 1GB
    750GB 5400 RPM
    Glossy Widescreen LED Display

    Thank you.

    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.

    This. Always shop around to get a general idea. Fortunately, Macs have wonderful resale value so you should be able to sell it and get a nice chunk of change in your pocket.

    I sold my 13" MBP for 1000 and paid 1300. Very good resale value.

    Awesome. :)

    Do you mind sharing where you sold it, you can PM me if you dont want to share it. I have a 17" and I just found out i need to take my laptop on the road time to trim down and pick up a smaller mbp with thunderbolt display.

    Thanks!
