How much money do you think this could sell for?

Sun Feb 05, 2012 15:48

.


I need to buy a 13-inch macbook pro for school, so I'm going to sell my current laptop.
How much do you guys think I could sell this for?
I've looked on ebay to get an idea, but it's hard to search for exact specifications. I searched "HP G62" and the price range was 300 to 400 dollars.
My current laptop:
Model: HP G62 Notebook PC
Operating System: Windows 7
Processor: AMD Athlon II P320 Dual-Core Processor 2.10 GHz
Memory RAM: 4.00 GB
Storage: 300.00 GB

Windows Experience Index Rating subscores:
- Processor: 5.0 out of 7.9
- Memory RAM: 5.9 out of 7.9
- Gaming Graphics: 5.3 out of 7.9
- Non-Gaming Graphics: 4.1 out of 7.9
- Hard disk: 5.9 out of 7.9
Condition: Used, very good condition
Age: ~1.5 years; purchased in summer of 2010
Other: 3 USB ports, HDMI output, SD card input slot, webcam, DVD-drive, microphone input, headphone output, monitor output, the usual.

I'd say the marked price was just about spot-on. If you found someone who was a little clueless, you might be able to sell it for 500 or 600.

But that much money would *not* get you a MacBook Pro and you certainly don't *need* a MacBook pro for any reason, let alone for specific school purposes.

Even if you were into video editing or the like, which most people (baselessly) think Apple is superior at, there's not a need to switch over. Pretty much all of Apple's software products either work on Windows or have a functional third-party equivalent.

I'd save your money and keep what you have. It sounds like a decent computer.

I've heard some schools REQUIRE macbooks, at least for specific programs.
My friend went into some art program and she was required to get a macbook pro.

I know it won't be enough alone to get a MacBook pro.
And my graphic design program requires a MacBook pro. My acceptance letter says it's absolutely mandatory.
Anywho, thanks for your input. I'll be happy if I can get $400 for it

That's especially retarded seeing as how there is literally no reason you'd have to use a Mac for graphic design. Especially since the majority of schools have lab computers available. So even if they required some specific program, you wouldn't have to own one yourself.

I wonder if your school has some kind of private agreement set up with Apple.

Probably. I get like a $100 discount on 13inch MacBook pros and I think a $200 on the bigger ones because I'm a student there. I also need my own licensed copy of photoshop, which I also get a discount on

They're just lame then.

I imagine they just want to teach you photoshop and refuse to use the Windows version of it, which doesn't really make any sense.

If you can, don't buy photoshop. Arrrrrrrr (if you know what I mean). Otherwise use gimp, it's free. Although I don't know if it's for Mac.

They may or may not force you to use a Mac version of photoshop, but don't let that cripple you. You should know how to use it across operating systems and even across different programs.

I completely agree, it's the same program regardless of the operating system, and my college is super lame for disregarding that.
p.s. arrr matey :whistle:
