    ... selling my beloved Macbook. Had him since 2007 and used him nearly every single day. The new Macbook Pro's are very tempting, Im needing something with a bit more ooompf in the graphics department and was considering how much I would get for my mac

    Its a Macbook (duh) 2,1 , 320GB hard drive 7200rpm, 1GB Ram, 2.0GHz, runs OSX Snow Leopard, iWorks 08 and CS4 suit (Photoshop, Flash, blah blah) installed. It'll come with all the original packaging, remote, a red clip on case and a carrying sleeve.

    Its got the general wear and tear you expect, no cracks tho. Really tried to look after him. I think its got one dead pixel thats been there since new but you dont notice it.

    I've tried to be as honest as possible because I want a realistic price, I was expecting around the £400 mark for it but when I went onto eBay some folk were asking £500 - £650 for theirs.

    Thoughts ?!?

    Cheers

    You're giving away your CS4 license?

    I would say that £500-600 would be reasonable for the second to last generation with the 9400M but not with the plastic Unibody. It may be worth noting that the last non-unibody MacBook with the 9400M is going for £595 on www.cex.co.uk in the best possible condition.

    I know yours comes with a tonne of software, however that doesn't necessarily add as much value as being more current hardware. I'd say between £400-500 would be more realistic considering that for £95 more than the top asking price people can get a much more recent machine, albeit without all the software you're providing.
