    i have two early 2011 MBP's one i received through my school and the other i bought out right from apple. I just graduated and was trilled to find out that i could keep my 17inch MBP. So i have a 15inch that i'm looking to part with because once again as a college student extra cash is always great. What do you guys think i could sell it for?

    Specs are

    Core i7 2.0ghz
    8gb ram 1333ghz
    ATI 6490m
    500gb HD
    glossy screen

    And it comes with a hard shell case from the apple store. Black in color.

    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.

    You can't offer it for sale here.

    Apple is currently selling this on their refurb page for $1359. With the upgraded ram, I think $1200 would be a fair asking price. Check eBay's recently ended auctions to see what folks are actually paying for them.
