    I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this question in, but I'm thinking about selling my MB Air and upgrading to a new MB Pro.

    I have a 2.13 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Air with 4GB memory and 256GB SSD. It is the mid-2011 "ultimate" version.

    I'm trying to get a good idea of what I could expect to sell it for, and if there are any sites other than eBay that you recommend selling on.

    I sold my 2008 unibody macbook on Gazelle this week for $203 best was only offering me $140. I might have been able to get more through craigslist but I didn't want to take the chance of it not selling right away, and then having to meet someone etc. I've used gazelle before and I think their prices are fair and give more than best buy trade in for instance. If you have paypal you get your money quicker if not they will mail you a check. They also process it quickly. See of you can get a quote on gazelle and if you'd be happy with that amount. Also not sure if you knew but apple also has a trade in program for thief computers and they give you an apple gift card. Just an FYI.

    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.

    Looking at eBay past auctions to get an average is a good idea. If selling locally, take 5-10% off the eBay average.
