    I tried Craig's list but it's full of scams and people trying to get me to ship the comp to Africa lol..
    Is there a dedicated forum around here that people can sell Mac related stuff?
    I'm new to Macrumors so any help would be appreciated.

    Thanx in advance!

    There is a Marketplace forum here, but you have to qualify:

    I highly suggest you try Craigslist/marketplace/some other form of face to face meetup before resorting to ebay. beware of scams!

    Ebay maybe, but I think I was higher than $50 one time. However you have PP fees as well.

    Untrue. Fees are based on sale price + Paypal fees are .029%.

    Or do what i did, take it in to your local next byte to get a problem fixed on it. Make sure they have to send it away to get fixed, then when it returns damaged request a new one!
    Worked for me :) same computer but with SSD and hi res glossy too.
    My 2011 2.2Ghz hi res Glossy and SSD will arrive in abit over a week :p

    Being serious but, unless you try to sell your Macbook Pro for more then $2400 what he said is true. Dear OP, try to get ~$1900-$2000 and do it on ebay. Finally make sure you have buyer requirements on so you are less exposed to potential fraud

    It's simple math buddy. Paypal will take .029% which is $58.00 on $2,000. Then add in ebays fees (which are quite a bit more) and you are far from $50.

    Anyway, just go to ebay and look for yourself if you are interested in selling there. I sell there all the time and have no issues with ebay. I just want you to be informed when it looks like so many others are clearly not.

    This is all correct. I just sold my old one this week. There's eBay's listing fees, eBay's Final Value Fees (9% up to $50 for auction style listings), and PayPal's Fee that's deducted from your payment before receipt (.029%). On a $2000 sale, that's over $108 without the listing fees. Caveat venditor.

    Hey thanks for the feedback everybody.
    This computer is in immaculate condition. How much do you guys think I should let it go for?

    I sold a hi-res AG model i7 2010 w/8GB ram that was also immaculate (only 41 battery cycles total) for $1700 cash craigslist two weeks ago. For your model on ebay I would say it'll probably sell for $1500 minus $100 of ebay + paypal fees. You just gotta find a lucky Craigslist buyer.

    Um...yeah. 0.029% of $2000 is NOT $58.00... 0.029% of $2000 is $0.58.

    Did you seriously just post this? Hilarious. I have no comment and those that can actually multiply can decide for themselves.

    Multiplying $2000 by 0.00029, that is 0.029% = $0.58 (my mistake in the last post)

    If you multiply $2000 by 0.029, that is 2.9% = $58.00

    Does PP charge 0.029% or 2.9%?

    2.9%, which would be $58.00 on $2k.
