    So i have a Late 2008 unibody macbook 13.3 inch. has a 120gb SSD hd and 8gb off ddr3 ram, the 2.0 intel core 2 duo and Lion installed. has zero scratches or blemishes. and the battery still holds over a 2 hour charge. what do you all think i could get for it?

    13" Dual-Core i5 MBP starts at 1199 right now. You've got a nice SSD and a bit more RAM. But, the RAM is cheap, and most people would highly prefer the i5 to the C2D.

    With that said, I'd think that 800 on the low end, 950 on the high end (you'd have to be pretty lucky though) is about what you're looking at.

    not bad. I'm not going to lie i bought it for 400 with a dead Hd so i bought a 120gb for $100 and spend $54 on the 8gb of ram. and sold the old ram for $20. so i only have about 530 into it. id be happy selling for 8-850.... is ebay my best option?

    Look up what 'comparable' models sold for recently on eBay. Apple stuff usually sells best there.

    Upgrades tend to get you very little additional resale value, ESPECIALLY on a MacBook. People looking for MacBooks tend to want a notebook that has an Apple on it, and don't really care about the hardware...

    I doubt you would get near $800 for it, weren't they $999 new?

    Lol. Dear sir. I would like to purchase your item for $2,000 + $200 shipping. Please let me know what account I should wire my money to.



    On a serious note, I want to sell my MacBook Air but no idea. 13 inch, SSD 128GB hard drive, and 2GB RAM. Model was last years C2D right before they came with the i5 models.
