Recycle Your Apple Laptop and Get the Most Out of Your Old MacBook

One of the best things about using an Apple MacBook is that unlike any Windows laptop, it does not turn into unusable metal junk after three to four years of use. A five-year-old Apple laptop is still a solid computer, and a year-old MacBook is still considered new to many people. This is the reason why selling a MacBook, even an old one, can be economical, because it can give you a lot of cash even though you won’t get its original price. Even with lower Mac prices and the company’s decision to use Intel processors, the resale value of a MacBook is still good, especially if you sell laptop especially if it's in good condition.

Selling Apple MacBook

If you buy a laptop running a Windows operating system, its worth will be less than 30% in a year. In two years, it’s going to be 60% less. However, this does not happen to a MacBook. You can actually recover some of your initial payment. Here are the resale values of the 15 inch Apple laptop in 7 years:


Original Price

Resale Value






















Obviously, a new Apple MacBook retains its original value, while a-year old MacBook gets around $1,500. If you sell a six-year-old laptop, you can actually buy a new laptop from Dell, Acer, Toshiba, or any other budget laptop companies since they start around $600! How about a MacBook Air? Well, a 13 inch MacBook Air with an original price of $1,300 will still cost $900 in three years, while an 11 inch MacBook Air that cost $1,199 has a resale value of $900 in two years. If you have a more recent MacBook Air, you can expect it to have a higher resale value.

Go Green and Recycle Apple MacBook

Selling your old Apple MacBook is also beneficial to the environment because you are actually recycling it in exchange for cash. Moreover, any MacBook is a green gadget because of its one-piece aluminum unibody enclosure, which means fewer resources are used. About two pounds of aluminum are not used, and that’s eco-friendly! Apple laptops are also free from arsenic, mercury, PVC, and BFR, and use 30% less energy.

Because it is made of aluminum, it is easy to recycle an Apple MacBook. With fewer plastic parts mixed with metals, the recycling process for used MacBooks won’t take too much work. When you sell MacBook Air, you help keep Mother Earth healthy and clean!

How to Get Cash for Your Apple MacBook

You can actually just return your MacBook to any Apple Store, but the thing is you will only get a gift card that you can only use to buy Apple devices, such as the iPhone and iPad. You can also sell your MacBook on eBay or Amazon, both of which are selling sites, but it is hard to get customers there, unless you already have good reviews as a seller. Any buyer would want to know that the seller is of good standing. So if you are a newbie, then you should think twice about selling on bidding sites.

Or, you can also try companies like, a site created by a team of green recyclers bent on helping the world by getting rid of electronic waste one gadget at a time. Selling your Apple MacBook on will not only give you cash but also help maintain the welfare of the environment. Just visit the site and get a quote for your Apple laptop using the estimator.
