I'm seriously considering selling my macbook. Here are it's specs:
Processor: 2.16 GHz 667 FSB.
RAM: 2gb, duel channel.
HDD: 160gb 5400rpm.
extra: mini-DVI to DVI converter, remote, charger, charger extension, 2 yr applecare warranty, original packaging (including brown UPS box and styrofoam).

What price should I try to sell this at? Pictures come below. (give it about 5-10 minutes). Its in very good condition, no dead pixels, only thing I find annoying is that the laptop gets a little hot, but thats expected.

That looks really clean - I think you could get $1300 for it because of the applecare.

Say closer to $1150 with everything mentioned. Depreciation begins the minute you pull it out of the box.

I would say in the $1000-$1100 range. Just because you are two generations behind the new blackbook. But you never know what someone will pay on ebay.

I think $1000 is tops. Apple offers the 2.2 blackbook for $1099 refurbished plus tax for most people. Add some value for your Applecare.

I think Marklans got it on the nose. Is the only reason you want to sell it is because it gets hot? Most laptops do get hot though. Good luck!

Is AppleCare owner transferrable? I was under the impression that it wasn't.

He's looking for comments on pricing. I'm fine with it here in Notebooks.

It looks neat, you can go to ebay also. I guess it can be at least $1000 if everything is fine.

IIRC it is. As long as you have a receipt it should be no problem. Better yet, have the previous owner transfer it to you.

With faster/better refurbs going for $1099 I think even with AC I wouldn't pay more than $900 for this used Mac. If you wait long enough, I'm sure somewhere you can find an idiot willing to pay $1300 for it though.
