    When I look at selling my used gear, I tend to look at sites like PowerMax to see if they have anything in used inventory that is similar to what I am selling. I then use that price as the high end guideline. In other words undersell them somewhat, but not substantially.

    I would say $650 is much to low. That sounds like pretty much what places like PowerMax would offer you if you were going to sell it to them. Of course they only pay what they think they can make a decent profit on. Anyone only offering $650 is probably looking to resell it at a profit. I would say no, and wait for a better offer, but I guess it all depends on how motivated a seller you are. "it's a case of you pays your money and you takes your choice.."

    That's what I thought. Craigslist is horrible. I am tempted to just keep it. I thought 750 was a great deal. Oh well I will wait and see. This is the first day I posted it on Craigslist. Thank you for your advice. I really appreciate it!

    My first thought was that $650 wasn't bad. After a moment of thought, $650 is low. If you've got the box, etc., I'd probably relist it for $850 and take $750-800.

    The 4 GB RAM is good, as is the 128 GB SSD, but the 1.4 GHz Core 2 Duo is a killer compared to any of the current ones.

    $650 for that specific model is much too low...maybe check prices on ebay and re-list accordingly

    Depends who's willing to buy it and what he'd use it for.

    Myself, I'd rather have a Core 2 Duo + nVidia 320M than an i5 + intel HD3000.

    I paid 780.00 for my 2010 C2D 1.6GHz/128GB/4GB with 6 months of warranty left on it, if that helps... I wouldn't take less than 750.00 for it. 650.00 is what I've seen a lot of the base models go for...
