    Ok, don't get mad, I still want a Mac, I think I just bit off way too much for a first timer. In March I bought a top of the line Mac Pro (Two 2.8 Quad Core, Geforce Graphics and ramped up the Memory to 10 G.B).

    So, two months later I have hardly touched it, so I am thinking of downgrading to an Imac. Can anyone advise me on where is a good place to sell mine? Thanks.

    Wanna trade for an 2.8 24inch iMac with 4gb ram and 500gb HD? Obviously I will add cash... Let me know if you want to try and make it work.

    You can sell it here....
    You can sell it on eBay...
    You can sell it on craigslist...
    You can sell it in your local newspaper...
    You can sell it to a friend...
    You can sell it to a relative...
    You can sell it by putting a sign in your front yard....

    I think you see where I am going with this.;)

    I would highly recommend craigslist. I've sold two macs on there already all within a week or two after posting an ad and at the price I asked.

    As long as your price is reasonable you should be able to sell it, be aware of the lowballers and scammers there are way too many of them on there. I have chosen to not reply to people that dont at least leave a phone number.

    I'd sell it on here in the classifieds if you qualify.

    It was bought the first day they were released. Sometime in August of last summer.

    I am an home dad video guy, and I just can't seem to find the time to give to really make this investment pay off. Part of me says hold on until I have the time, but man, thats a hell of a machine to just be sitting right next me here.

    How do I qualify for the classified section?

    If you meant this Marketplace, you need to have at least 100 post to be able to post, additional rules are found in the Marketplace section

    This thread cannot turn into an out-of-marketplace sales/trade/whatever.

    Therefore, closed.
