    Received a MBA (13/i7/8/256) as a gift. Already have a mid-2011 (13/i5/4/128) and am happy with it - see no real reason to upgrade.

    Aside from eBay or Gumtree where would be a good place to sell it?

    The OP doesn't yet qualify for the Marketplace.

    Marketplace Rules - Mac Guides
    Craigslist is another option. Be careful when meeting anyone from a Craigslist ad.

    Doubtful I ever will qualify for the marketplace! I've been a member since 2007 and made around 111 posts. A minimum post count of 250 seems a bit excessive..

    Anyway I guess I will try craiglist. Thanks for the warning.

    Craigslist is worth a shot. Also consider eBay with a fixed price sale. It has a 5% commission (plus PayPal's 2.9%) vs. the 9% commission on auction sales.

    Is there any particular reason you want to sell the 2012 and keep the 2011 rather than keep the 2012 and sell the 2011? My guess is that your 2011 will fetch about $800 while the 2012 would sell for about $1625 (it is new from Apple for $1699). (I see you are in London but I'm guessing the conversion would work about the same - i.e. the 2011 would go for about half what the 2012 would).

    I agree, there are times when I think about the marketplace, but I don't think I will ever reach 250 posts. I also have been here for years and am generally not a big poster. 250 does seem excessive.

    I just looked, in 4 years I just have 78 posts. 250 is going to take some time:)

    Appleserialnumberinfo.com you can list your Mac. No comission and it stays on there for quite some time. The perfect audience to see your listing as it's an Apple related website.

    if I were you - which I'm not - I'd be keeping the gift and selling what you have now on ebay.

    their fees are pretty reasonable really ;)
