I recently realized I have /way/ too many computers. I currently possess 2 mac laptops (macbook air, macbook), and 2 mac desktops (mac mini, mac pro). On top of that, my employer provides me with a Macbook Pro. So that's 5 Mac's. How does this happen?

Beth uses the Macbook Air, and I use the Mac Mini as a home server, but otherwise I use my work provided Macbook Pro for my computing. This means that I have two surplus Macs that are literally sitting in a closet. I figure I should sell them. So, I've emailed various peoples, posted in various places, and decided to post here also.

So, here are the specifications on the computers:

Macbook Unibody 13" Laptop

Tech Specs:
Processor: 2.4ghz Intel
Screen: 13.3inch glass coated
RAM: 4gb
Hard Drive: 320gb

Other Nice Things:
- It has the new integrated multitouch trackpad
- It is a single unibody aluminum design, but also still has a removable battery (the current ones dont)
- It has a backlit keyboard.
- I have formatted it to a new, clean system running the latest 10.6 Snow Leopard version of OS X.
- I am pretty sure still have the original box and such, so I'll pack it all up as it came (including accessories and restore discs and such).

Finally, It is under AppleCare warranty until Late 2011, so if it breaks Apple will fix it for free.

There is a webpage with full specs for this model located at everymac.

Price: $1000. This is based on a range of $800-$1200 for this model used at various places online, as well as the cost of comparably equipped MacBooks and 13 inch MacBook Pros on

Mac Pro 8-core 2.8ghz Desktop

Tech Specs:
Processor: 2 2.8ghz 4-core Intel Processors
RAM: 6gb
Hard Drive: 320gb
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT with 512 MB of GDDR3 memory
Secondary Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT with 256 MB of GDDR3 memory

Other Nice Things:
- Includes 2 DVD burner drives... the default Apple "superdrive" and a faster version I added in the second bay.
- I added an accessory to the machine that routes hidden eSATA ports to the rear.
- I am including an external bay that connects to the eSATA ports and provides 2 additional full speed hard drive bays.
- Three of the four internal drive bays are unused, meaning there are 5 total bays available (including eSATA)
- Includes the Bluetooth and WiFi optional module. This is installed, but the signal is less than ideal. I recommend wired ethernet if possible.
- Formatted to a new clean system running 10.6 Snow Leopard version of OS X.

Note: This is a desktop machine, and does not include a display. Additionally, it does NOT include the Apple Keyboard and Mouse that originally shipped with it. But it will work with any keyboard and mouse you care to attach (or use wirelessly). This computer is not under AppleCare at this point.

There is a full page of specs for this model located at everymac.

Price: $2500. This is based on the current selling range for this model (in various configurations) online, as well as the cost of a comparably equipped Mac Pro from

If you know anyone who is interested in or has any questions about either of these machines, please let me know.
