What's the value of my MBP?

So how much do you guys think I can get for my mid 2009 15" Core2Duo 2.53ghz MBP?

It has 2 years of apple care left on it I think. Nothing wrong with it at all, no visual dents or scratches on it either.

It still all stock. 4GB RAM, 250GB harddrive, etc.

I have all the original boxes for everything, including the applecare box and stuff.

I sold a 15" Pro (this exact model) this past summer for $900. It had one dent and a couple scratches. And no extra applecare. So the above poster should be bang on.

Up to the market

They're worth whatever someone is willing to pay. People pay FAR too much for used MBP's and other devices based mostly on hype but in the end, it's all about how bad someone wants it and how easy it is to find. Just like anything else, it's whatever the market will bear. Around here, 2009 MBP's go for around 800-900 dollars but I've seen specs like yours go for 750 (rare). As a buyer I wouldn't pay more than 7 or 8 bills for a 2009, but that's me. As a seller, I'd ask for 1100 and then adjust based on offers.

Is it the one with integrated (9400M) graphics? If so, that model doesn't sell for nearly as much. Honestly, I think $1100 is really high. That's about the going rate for a 2010 Core i5 MBP. I'd say yours is worth more around the $800-$900 range. You can buy a 2010 MBP from Apple with a year warranty and better specs for around $1189 + tax.

But as others have said, the market will bear what it bears, so if you can get someone to pay $1100, more power to you. I think it'll be tough, though.

Edit: The only way that machine can have 2 years of Apple Care left on it is if you bought it new in late 2010/early 2011. You might want to re-check the date.
