    Default How much is my macbook worth

    I'm honestly not looking to sell, I'm just wondering how much my macbook has either decreased or increased it's value. I have an Intel Core Duo 2.0ghz black macbook with now 2gb 667mhz ram and 80 gig hdd. What's your estimate.

    I don't have an estimate, but I can tell you computers never increase in value, so don't get your hopes up for that.

    Computers do nothing but decrease in value.

    I heard somewhere on this forum Apple notebooks have the best residual value. True or false?

    Maybe not BEST but Apple notebooks certainly have a GOOD resale value.

    I'd buy your BlackBook for $1300.

    See what the refurbs on Apple's site for that model are going for and subtract maybe about $100 or so. Apple's have good resale value though.

    I actually saw a few MBPs specced exatly like mine going for slightly more than what I paid. It's definitely the education discount of $200 that's making it that way for me. The gain I would get by selling this would only be like 50 or so bucks, which just isn't worth it.
    From what I saw when I was still looking to buy, used macbooks tend to be around 15% less than their new counterparts. MBPs are between 8% and 15% less than new depending on usage/spec. I may be off by a bit, and that may have changed in the last month or so, but that's a generalization of what I saw.

    Does apple have a trade in program? That, they have a list of laptops, and have a set value for it?

    Cause, I know the Sony Vaios do.
