    Since Apple is now very likely to release updated models in only about a month. Also when they start their back-to-school promotion, will it include the new MBA too? I just got mine in February so I'm thinking I can get most of my money back, then buy an updated one with a free iPod perhaps.

    Yes. I cannot think of a better time to sell.

    Maybe $1,100? That or $1,125...sounds right to me based on how much you have used it. (since February)

    Well I've used it mostly everyday, but it's in perfect condition, I've never dropped it and there aren't any scratches anywhere. Battery health is still 98-99% since it's only been 3 mos. Only thing is dust that's gathered in the edges of the screen, which is kind of inevitable..

    That's with a full 1 year warranty and in new condition. Yours would not be considered in new condition since it has been used.

    $1000 if you are lucky, $950 seems to be the right price

    I had the same one as you, and I sold mine about 3-4 weeks ago. I felt like I was lucky to get $975 then for it. I took a look, and it seems like $950-$1,000. I would suggest something like Craigslist though assuming your in/near a larger city. I can't stand all the fees on Ebay anymore, although I really don't like meeting people to sell something either.

    Been looking around to see if SB really drive down prices and after weeks of research on craigslist it seems like it has. You can easily score a "A" condition 13 inch macbook of your spec for roughly 850. There isn't a lot of 256GB offerings around my area but they tend to run 1100-1300 for the base 256GB (retail 1599 model).

    I'd say get rid of it NOW. If it's coming in June you don't have much time before everyone else realizes Core 2 Duo is dinosaur that needs to go extinct.

    What do you think a maxed out MBA 13" (4GB/2.13) used since Feb with Applecare until Feb 2014 would go for?

    YMMV!YMMV!YMMV!

    Ebay - roughly $1500-$1600
    Craigslist - $1400+

    I came buy a Craigslist post where a person has listed a 1 month old 2010 Macbook Air ultimate for $1375 but i think that is too much. What would you guys do?
