im selling my mac


Senior Member
if you've been following my tweets then you'll have seen the annoying convos about this already.

one rather big question.

1. how much should i sell it for? it has these things loaded on (legit):

  • Adobe CS3 Premium
  • Adobe CS4 Premium
  • Coda 1.1

Hardware Overview:

Model Name: MacBook
Model Identifier: MacBook4,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.1 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 3 MB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 800 MHz
Boot ROM Version: MB41.00C1.B00
SMC Version (system): 1.31f0
Serial Number (system): W88378U70P0
Sudden Motion Sensor:
State: Enabled
it's in mint condition. no scratches, screen has like 2 finger prints on. battery life still 6 hours, still under warranty, 9 months old.

I have no idea how much to sell it for, am only selling it so I can have more money to put towards the MacBook Pro- no faults at all.

Any help?

why are you not taking the software off and slinging it on the macbook pro? Also is it student or full versions of the software.

As to price - well you can get a new one for about 750 so personally, even though its only 9 months old, I wouldn't pay any more than £350-400 without the software. It has only got the intel gma(950iirc) graphics versus the newer nvidia 9400m and 1GB ram.

But then again maybe I'm just a cheapskate and a mac fanatic might pay more :)

Yeah, I see that the new ones out, and that it's only got 1GB of RAM, but I haven't had any problems, and I've had Illustrator, Coda, Safari, Nambu (yes, that can be a hefty app, Onartis, especially when you have hundreds of tweets and links coming in every minute through feeds), etc open at the same time... and 1GB lasted me extremely well.

I have more than 1 licence for the software so I may as well try lift up the amount it's worth with the software.
I'd push for £400 - £450, i got the first black MacBook when it came out, which if I'm not mistaken would have been less powerful than yours and i managed to sell it just before Christmas for £500....

I appreciate this was top end (and a little lucky) hence the £400 - £450 price for yours

i have a £510 offer at the mo but not sure whether to push higher, that's why i was asking how much i should sell it for...

any other ideas?

You've got more than one licence but you must be the primary user of both. If you sell on the software then I assume that he must now be the primary user of both.

Basically, it's not legit.
