With the release of the new MacBook/Pros tomorrow, and it all but a certainty that this will be the biggest update the Pros have seen in years, now is the perfect time to sell your current MacBook/laptop before it drops in value at trade-in.9to5mac.com.

Although new MacBook releases don’t usually affect the value of older models as dramatically as new iPhones do, with such a substantial update we predict a steep decline in the value of older and current MacBook/Air/Pros. The Retina MacBook Pros and 12” MacBook will likely drop in value by several hundred dollars, while the older MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs could see their values quickly approaching zero.

Now is the perfect time to lock-in your quote before the prices drop and ensure you have enough money in the budget to be able to buy one of the updated Macs. You might be surprised how much you can lock in. You can use our simple buyback website to get a quote for your device in less than a minute. If you like what you see, we’ll send you a box to mail it in with as well as prepaid postage and then quickly mail you a check… which you can then sign over to Apple again!

Note: If you want even more cash, empty out that device drawer where your old iPhone/iPad/Apple TV/etc are just sitting/depreciating and see how much you can get for them. While 9to5Mac does do business with, use and endorse Myphonesunlimited (and we’ve never had any complaints), the site is external and we cannot be held liable for your experience with them. We may receive a small commission if you are satisfied with and move forward with your cash trade-in or repair (which is a great way to support the site). We appreciate any feedback on your experience.

Update: For commenters, yes you can get more on Ebay or Craigslist but you also have to deal with all of that process as well including sketchy buyers and the time it takes. This service takes 5 minutes and you get cash.
