Raise money from your old Mac

Sell your un­needed tech to raise some cash

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

If you want to raise some ex­tra cash to put to­wards the pur­chase of a new Mac, you should con­sider sell­ing your old com­puter. Ap­ple of­fers a trade-in scheme ( www.ap­ple.com/mac/

trade-up) and will give you money to re­cy­cle your old Mac, but the prices it of­fers are not al­ways the best avail­able.

If you want to get an idea of how much your Mac is worth, use a web­site called mac2sell.net. Its prices are of­ten a lit­tle on the gen­er­ous side ad­mit­tedly, but it can be use­ful to see how much you might be able to sell your model for, when the time comes.

Per­haps the best way to get an ac­cu­rate sense of how much you might raise is by check­ing other list­ings on eBay. Watch auc­tions of the same model as the one you want to sell, as that shows what peo­ple are will­ing to pay (rather than Buy it Now items, which of­ten don’t sell at all).

How­ever you sell your old Mac, it’s an ex­cel­lent way to re­duce the amount you need to save up.
