Price check: 17" mbp with i7

Hey Guys.

So I've decided to get an air, but that hinges on a fair market value for my machine.
Here's the specs:

17" macbook pro - purchase brand new in april 2010 by me.
2.66 i7 (upgraded over the stock i5)
4gb ram
500 gb 7200 rpm drive (factory upgrade over the 5400rpm)
Matte screen upgrade
Its in excellent conditon, no dead pixels etc.
With Apple care - machine is about 10 months old (so 26 months left)
Everything else as per spec.

I also have a Booq Boa Navy Nerve Large.
Laptop Messenger Bags by booq
Was about $200 with tax and shipping. I would include the bag if someone wanted. Guessing that adds about $100 if someone wants it. I could always sell it separately. It's a rockin' bag!

Curious what you guys think?

Thanks,
Nick

Thanks. I tried Mac2Sell. Funny as I tried it last week and it said $2350. Should of sold it then eh! This week is says $1730, but that doesn't include my applecare, matte screen or 7200rpm drive.

Which if I add those in, is about what I thought. I was thinking $2100?
So as for a ballpark I think I'm in it. Seem reasonable?
And $100 for the case?

Cheers,
Nick

i think $2100 is a reasonable place to start...maybe you have to drop $100 when negotiating

"With Apple care - machine about 10 months"

Not sure exactly what that means but, right now the apple refurb store has the exact machine for $2039. That would come with a full year of applecare and for the most part be bnib. I'd probably say that $1900 would be a more realistic sale price.

Thanks for letting me know. Just fixed that.
I meant to say the machine is about 10 months old. So it has about 26 months on warranty.

your mac has matte, the one in refurb is glossy, yours also has a faster drive. neither of these things are worth what you paid for them used, but they do factor in...add to that the applecare ($400 value) and i really dont think $2100 is bad

the one thing that sucks about selling a used 17" now is that the people who will tolerate the 17" size (*real* "pros" working in video, graphic design, audio, etc) are all the people who would really, really appreciate the improved capabilities of the new models.

Very true. Most video users would like the extra bump on the new ones. But then again mine's cheaper for people (and no tax), and you can't get a matte screen unless you go new. But for web and print (what I do) it's plenty fast!

Thanks for all the help. I have a friend locally who is interested.
If not, I'll list it soon.

Cheers guys!
Nick

The $2039 17" i7 2.66Ghz model in the refurb store (OOS right now) is a Matte screen. You can certainly get Matte screen options in the Refurb store (at both the 15" and 17" levels).

Regardless, good luck on your sale!
