    Hello,

    So I have decided to sell my 2016 MacBook Pro. It has the 2.9Ghz i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, Radeon Pro 460, and 512 GB SSD. I got this primarily for traveling between two different places weekly, but that is no longer needed. Instead, I will be getting the new iMac.

    Would $2,000 be reasonable? It is lightly used, perfect condition. Also, where would be a good place to sell it? Apple offers the ability to trade in your current Mac when buying a new one. I was only offered $1,200. That seems a bit low for me as it was $4,000 when I got the laptop and it was not that long ago. Is that reasonable?

    Thanks!

    I think that's pretty reasonable with the upgrades.

    eBay is probably best, if you search for similar machines and price yours the same. If it doesn't sell then lower the price. Simples online selling!

    Apple's trade in will always offer a low value, same as an pawn or exchange store. You're paying to not have to faff around with all this and just complete a simple transaction. They also need to cover costs of resale or repair. They're a middle-man, it's always going to be a better value if you sell it yourself directly.

    Is it possible to move my Apple Care from my Macbook Pro to the new iMac?

    Not usually, it's a product specific thing not an account thing. The AC will stay with the product (when you sell), so you'd have to take out a new AC on the iMac.

    You might get an Apple Care discount for multiple devices.
    You'll get more if you sell it privately than if you trade it in. But the trade-in is fast and easy.
    Ebay is safe because it has seller protections and gives buyers an easy comparison.
    You could list it for $2k and add a Best Offer option.

    How much is it worth?

    It depends on how fast you want to sell it.

    The market of where you live and how you want to sell it will ultimately determine its used value.

    I've been following many listings on eBay over the past month; you can easily get $2100 to $2300

    Beware of eBay final sale fees. They can be more than you think.

    Know exactly what you'll owe before listing (assuming fixed price sale) and if eBay don't make that easy and clear to know before listing then don't.

    ebay charges their 10 percent then paypal take another 2-5. so 15 percent in general, if you sell for 2100 on ebay, expect 250 bucks for fees. your better off selling it here or reddit and use paypal invoice service.

    Put it for sale on swappa.com. That's where I sell everything and it has little to no risk compared to eBay.
