If I were going to sell mine (same specs as yours), I'd be looking for $1000 and would probably sell at $950. A refurb is going to cost about $1200 delivered, so $200+ seems like a fair savings on an almost new machine.
I can see your points, but this has been upgraded. What you're saying is that the upgrades do not affect the value at all? I can't imagine selling this for less than 1100. The upgrades themselves were about 250 bucks.
you can get a brand new one, with a faster processor, faster graphics, longer battery life, the same RAM and a HDD still covered by applecare for $1249
puts things into perspective, huh? i STILL see people trying to hawk off their crappy black (and white) macbooks for $800-900. i swear a lot mac owners are the most delusional when it comes to pricing their machines for the secondhand market... not implying anything directly to the OP.. just sayin in general.
custom speccing a a computer is a lot like adding upgrades to a house or condo..they may cost you X dollars, but that doesnt mean they will add x dollars to the resale value..what you view as an "awesome upgrade" is just a boring wood floor to someone else. upgrade because you need/want to, but you cant expect a proportionate return on that investment when you go to sell
Well $1249+ tax comes out to $1411. So depending on how much money someone has to spend, $1100 might not be a bad deal.
Everyone seems to forget about taxes these days so thank you for reminding people of the "real" price. It's like me saying I'm gonna sell it for 950, plus tax. It's silly!
I don't think that 1100 is a lot at all. You're saving a couple of hundred dollars for a machine that's practically brand new.
The problem with the Warranty is that technically I have 2 years of protection from purchase. As my credit card provides an additional year of coverage and therefore useless for me to purchase AppleCare.
Thanks for the insights though guys. If people can't see this as a good deal, then there's no point in selling it, I may as well just keep it.
