    Im planning on selling this macbook because I mainly use my ipad when I'm out and about now and I would prefer an iMac. The specs are listed below...


    By the way, it has the high res anti-glare screen...

    What do you guys think a good price would be? It is in mint condition and I have all the boxes and packing materials.

    Without Applecare, I'd say something like $1400-1450. With Applecare, around $1500-1600.

    You can get a refurb quad-core 2.0 for $1529, which depresses the value of what is a terrific computer.

    [EDIT] Add for high-res anti-glare screen.

    I checked some completed ebay listings and I saw some going for over 2000 so it may have ALOT to do with finding the right buyer.

    Im thinking of selling it on craigslist, because there is less of a chance of scams on it as far as I can tell. what do you think?

    Well, I've sold a couple on Craigslist without a problem--face to face meetings in public places (Starbucks, library, etc.), cash transaction. I've not yet had a problem.

    With eBay, you have fees for eBay and Paypal to contend with, and there's no guarantee you'll get $2k for it--and as more and more people realize a quad core refurb is a lot less, you'll see fewer and fewer.

    Hope that helps!
