    I haven't used the MBAIR as much as I thought I I'm thinking of selling it, THINKING of selling it..not decided yet!

    However, what are some good ways to sell? I don't really like ebay, are there any stores that buy used? mac stores? apple stores? I know I won't get incredible value, but its only 3 months old barely used...I paid 1450 for it, I would guess 1000 isn't too far off for what I could get for it based on refurbs...

    if you're looking for the most money back ebay is probably your best bet. However you have to take into account ebay AND paypal each take their cut

    I'm going through the same thing, trying to sell base Air with 4gb to upgrade to the ultimate 11". I put mine on craigslist first to see if I could get any bites without having to deal with all the eBay fees. As long as you know how to filter through the e-mails and be careful about it, craigslist is fine. If I don't find anyone in the next few weeks I'll probably just bite the bullet and put it on eBay. Any buy back programs out there either aren't very reliable or truly rip you off.

    I guess keeping it is the best bet...rather than losing money.

    It took me a week to sell my MB on CL. Bam, done. Took me several months to sell something (not Mac related). So, I guess it all depends on how patient you are willing to be.

    eBay will get it sold, albeit with the associated fees. But, with a huge market of potential buyers, you'll likely get the most money there. Having good pics, and good seller feedback will definitely help.

    Craigslist is great if you live in an area where Craigslist is busy and active. Of course, then there are always issues with having to meet up and other general sketchiness. But, no fees.

    I would try craigslist before eBay because eBay has ridiculous fees.

    It's ok to ask how and where to sell. It's not ok to ask pricing advice or offer to sell outside the Marketplace.
