    Let me preface for the mods, I'm not selling it here, just figured theres a lot of techy people here who could provide some input. Its a white 2008 macbook, 2.16Ghz, upgraded the ram to 4gb and the hdd to 500gb 5400 rpm. Now the battery says it needs servicing, and it sometimes has issues burning dvds. Given that, what do you guys think i should try sell it at? I also have the box and cables/remote, all that stuff. I want to price it realistically, but I also want to try and recoup as much as I can to put towards the new macbook pro when it comes out. Any input would be appreciated

    probably around $400. those specs on a new computer today are priced below $400.

    Go on eBay and Craigslist and look at what people are selling for there. It will give you a good idea what a used Mac book is selling for.
