    So I'm wanting to get a new mbp, so my old Macbook needs to go. It's served me well for the last ~1.8 years, and still has lots of life left in it.

    Problem is I don't really know what it should sell for, with the upgrades and the applecare that is remaining.

    Specs are as follows:

    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz processor
    2GB (2x1GB) Kingston 667mhz DDR2 ram
    200GB Seagate 7200rpm Sata2 HDD
    plus all the usual white macbook goodies, bluetooth, wifi, everyone here knows the deal.

    I've also got applecare for another year in January, so there's lots of warranty left.

    Screen is 9.5/10, only because there are a few light scratches (hair width). Outer casing is typical of a macbook that's been lugged around daily for the last year and a bit, so lots of scuffs (they seem to appear out of nowhere on these damn things) but no damage (cracks, chips, etc.) It's never been dropped. Battery is in good condition, I'd say about 75% of the original capacity.

    It'll come installed with leopard and iLife 08, and all the original accessories/boxes/manuals etc. I also have a bluetooth mighty mouse that I might be willing to throw in with it if it means making a sale.

    So, given all that, what does ot think I can get for it?

    I'd post pics, but I'm sure by now everyone knows what a white macbook looks like :wiggle:

    If it was mine, I would ask $600 for it.

    You can buy a "brand new" refurb with similar specs for $849 right now.

    Refurbished MacBook 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - White
    13.3-inch glossy widescreen display
    1GB memory
    120GB hard drive
    Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW)
    Built-in iSight camera
