    I have a black 2006 MacBook and have upgraded it, but I would really like to sell it and get one of the new MacBook, seeing as it will be able to officially run Mountain Lion and has the multi-touch trackpad and better specs. But I couldn't figure out how much I should sell it for? Below are the specs and changes that I have made and the additional accessories that I have for (and should I sell them as a bundle or separate?)

    Black MacBook 2,1 (late 2006) 13''
    Processor: 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory: UPGRADED from 1 gb to 4 gb of memory (DDR2 SDRAM)
    Hard Drive: UPGRADED from 120 gb HD to 1 tb HD
    Graphics: Intel GMA 950 64 MB of Shared System
    OS: 10.8.3 Mountain Lion (Using HackWayne's MLForAll) BUT I can downgrade it to the last stable release (Lion)
    Battery: New Battery

    Lines display on screen when starting up but go away when you adjust the screen. (They are only there after the computer has been off for several hours and don't come back during use)

    Original memory sticks (512 mb each, x2)
    Original 120 GB HardDrive
    Original Power Adaptor (it has the 2 prong and the extension) WORKING
    Purchased addition power adaptor (only has the 2 prong piece, NOT the extension)
    Magic Trackpad (purchased April 2013)
    DVI to VGA adaptor (for external monitor)
    iLife '11 and iWork '09 would be installed before shipping (depending on if the buyer wanted Mountain Lion or Lion installed)

    The laptop is in WONDERFUL condition. It has never been dropped and has never gotten wet. All the keys work and the display has no dead pixels and still has the same original brightness to it. Both speakers work and the headset and microphone jacks work. iSight camera with built-in microphone works perfectly and all ports works (I haven't used the FireWire port since I don't own anything FireWire). The computer looks almost brand new and the Apple Logo glows beautifully.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.
