    I have a late 2011 17" mbp,
    i7 quad 2.5ghz
    HD hi res anti glare
    16gb owc ram 1600mhz
    512gb samsung 830 ssd
    10.9 dp4
    custom leather case by sf bags

    I want to trade it for a 15" rmbp
    any stats

    Gazelle offers 1400
    apple offers 1200

    should I sell it and buy a refurb or does anyone know where or how to barter?

    Your best bet is craigslist if you want to barter. Maybe post a separate ad asking you are willing to trade your laptop for a Retina MBP maybe with cash on either end.

    I would honestly just sell it for cash via eBay or craigslist and use that money to find a nice rMBP.

    How do you get a quote from Apple?

    Craigslist, et cetera. There also happens to be a marketplace forum here but it requires a certain number of posts and at least 6 months membership.

    +1 for Craigslist. I bought my current 15" on Craigslist then turned around and sold my old 17" a week or so later. Took longer to talk the seller down on price than to sell the old one.
