    I just had my Macbook Pro 2.4 replaced under warranty for a 2.6. I had the 17" model and have grown tired of lugging it around so I sold the new 2.6 without opening it.

    I just paid 1084 for a brand new black Macbook 2.4 2GB memory 250gb hard drive. It was actually 1275 I believe and I get a 191 dollar rebate.

    I am one of those sad people that have to have the newest revision of all there Mac products so I was planning on selling it in the next 4-6 weeks when the new one releases if there are significant changes.

    Should I be able to sell without losing too much?

    The resale value of macs are very good, my guess is you won't loose more than 200 $.

    Go see what MacBooks are selling for on Ebay. That's your best indicator of the current market for used MacBooks.

    As a rough guide you can try http://www.mac2sell.net/ (no affiliation)

    As ever, an objects worth is only what someone is willing to pay. An imminent hardware update may affect prices to the good or bad. On the Plus side there will be a big buzz creating interest. The negative may be a flood of likewise configured machines at a better price
