    Hello, I need a more powerful computer and I was wondering if you guys could give me a price of the computer.

    Specs:

    13 inch Macbook Pro (Early 2011) (3 Months Old)
    2.7 Dual Core i7
    6 GB of RAM (1333 MHz)
    External Superdrive
    Data Doubler w/ 750 GB Scorpio Drive
    60 GB Sata3 SSD (Cosiar Force GT)

    Condition:
    Perfect condition, it looks like it just came out of the box

    Extras:
    Apple Care (untill late 2013)
    Speck Case
    Orignal Box
    Apple USB Recovery Drive (Offical)

    I think that the computer is worth about $1,300 to $1,400. DO you guys agree?

    Thanks,
    Macfan

    I think you're in the ballpark. But you've limited your market to somebody who will never need the optical drive because you removed it. It's a much better macbook now IMO but you've eliminated the general consumer just looking for a stock MB.

    Do you think that I would get more money if I put the optical drive back in?

    No, but you limited your market, as not everyone needs an SSD with an internal HDD. Just put it on CL or eBay and see, if your current configuration brings you the money you want.

    You're in the ballpark at least, though if I were in the market I'd be in the $1200-1300 range - small difference, but still there. A new 2.8 GHz 13" is $1399 with student or government discount, and the upper end models seem to lose more value relative to their original price than do the base models.
