Umm....what kind? Macbook? iMac? Pro? Air? The new macbooks have debuted, so if you are selling an older one, you might want to do it now before they value drops even more.

Looks like it's going anywhere from $300 to $600 used. That's only going to get lower. Of course, you could always try and sell it on a Mac-centric forum and maybe get more.

List it on Craigslist and see if you get any bites for your wanted price.

I'd recommend Craigslist too. eBay people can be weird when buying used computers. Someone might get it and complain about some stupid little problem (the hard drive sounds loud ... something like that). I'd much rather sell it locally to someone who can just stop by, play around with it for a few minutes and the pay cash. Tell the person to check everything they want to check before paying.
