Sure it's accurate that this specific place will pay $250 for a macbook
air, but that isn't what it's worth! Look at what people are buying
them for on KSL or Craigslist. I still think it's a bad
article. Of course if you sell it to a company you're not going to get a
good return on it. I sold my iPad after a year, for $500. I paid $599.
Great article. SmartMoney is a very credible source, so when they say that
MacBooks usually lose their value faster than iPads and iPhones, partially
because people keep them longer, they know what they are talking about. I
appreciate the unpopular yet accurate truth reported in this article.
Bad article!! The worth of something is based on whatever someone will pay for
it, right? Of course if you trade in your MacBook air for cash to a business,
you might not get much. But what is a person willing to pay? A 999 MacBook air
that is 2 years old might go for 6-700 on KSL. This article is misleading.
I don't quite buy this article. I think a $250 2010 MacBook Air would sell
in minutes on KSL.com.
The MacBook was also discontinued almost a year ago. MacBooks have lost their
value because newer model Apple laptops have had fairly big upgrades at
comparable prices to original MacBook prices.
