    I have a Mid-2011 21.5" iMac (iMac12,1). It has a 2.7GHz Core i5, 1TB HDD, 12GB of DDR3-1333 RAM, Radeon HD 6770M 512MB graphics, OS X Mavericks, and has AppleCare until February 23, 2015. Was wanting to list it here on MR, eBay and Amazon Marketplace. It's in mint (or very-near-mint) condition. No scuffs, dents, etc., a few scuffs near the USB ports that you can only see if you blast it with a flashlight and magnifying glass.

    I was thinking around $979? Is that too high? Or could should I shoot for higher than $1k?

    I have too many photos to attach to the post, so here's a link to all the pictures on iCloud: iMac - Photo Stream

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), and Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc. You can also check the Apple refurbished store to see what similar models are selling for.

    Thanks. I'm seeing $950 minimum via Mac2Sell. Digging through Amazon I see them going for $1,300... so I was thinking $1,000-$1,150?

    I wouldn't go with pricing from just one source. Check all sources and then determine an average between them. Some sources may quote higher than you could get, while others may quote lower.

    Sorry to bump a three year old post... but I just wanted to say I am having major seller's remorse.

    I miss my iMac! Buying the rMBP never happened as an unexpected fire occurred and took out my school computer.

    Haven't been able to save up the cash since for another Mac... I've been back in the world of Windows since '13.

    If you see my iMac for sale, please tell me! Or better yet, if you are the person who bought it on eBay, sell it back!!
