    I have a mint Macbook Pro 13" (2.7/8/256) with Force touch that I need to get rid of. I have been looking to sell but so far I am unable to find a reliable site that will guarantee a payout without trouble. I have been a long time eBay user but I know their system doesn't work on my favor when selling expensive tech gadget. Any other places I should consider?

    Thanks in advance,

    CL is where I bought my MBP. I met the guy at a wells fargo bank and checked it out in the lobby. Once I was satisfied I went to the teller, pulled out the cash, and gave it to him.

    CL, meeting at their bank for a sale. When the question about internet access comes up - to me, that's just a dodge attempt - I offer to bring my LTE iPad, which has MHS. Be prepared with a short elevator speech when the "buyer" tries to talk you down several hundred dollars...

    Craigslist here too. Met at a coffee shop last time I sold something.

    Family and friends, why would I give a great product to a stranger when I can do my family and friends a solid at mates rates.

    I've also sold all my old computers through Craig's list in the last decade or so.

    I used to just sell them on eBay but the fees were pissing me off. I discoverd www.swappa.com a few months ago and it was a good experience. You get fair prices in there and the fees are half of ebay. I sold my mid 2014 15", a early 2013 MBA and a Chromebook within three days of listing.

    Mostly Craigslist but now with two kids who are of the age, I just hand down my older machines and don't sell them.

    If I were to sell my Surface Book (my current laptop), I would look at Swappa, because it has less fees then eBay and it generally is faster then craiglist.

    If the guy's in need of cash for whatever reason - haven't we all been there? - then mates rates might not tick the right box.

    If you're in the UK Gumtree isn't bad. There might also be some local Facebook computer buy and sell groups..

    I would rather sell at eBay. I am scared of Craigslist. :(

    I've had good luck with Swappa. They've recently added MacBooks for sale, I've sold iPads and iPhones with no trouble on there.
