What would be a fair asking price?

by Frumpymess / August 25, 2017 1:48 PM PDT

Macbook pro (13 inch mid 2012)
i5 2.5ghz
8gb 1600mhz ddr3
Intel hd graphics 4000 1536 mb
500gb HDD

I can't seem to find this exact macbook being sold used. You can find mid 2012s with i5s going for $450-500, but those all have 4gb RAM instead of 8gb. The pricing seems to be all over the place. The only ones I've seen with the same cpu and ram are going for as much as $700, but they all have an ssd. Just can't seem to find this exact one for comparison.
Just looking for some input as to what would be a good asking price.
It's in excellent condition. All inputs work perfectly and it's never had any issues. My wife used it for nothing but making powerpoint presentations and only the most basic tasks.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

Yours may have more ram but it's a private sale and no warranty so you get less. If you want what I would pay, I reduce the price by 50% each year it ages.

In reply to: 500.

That sounds more than fair. I honestly didn't expect to even get that much so if it sells for 500, I'll be very happy. Thanks for the input!
