    Hi guys!

    I'm considering upgrading from my current iMac, a late 2009 model, but before I even start to shop, I have to figure out just how much I can still get from it.
    Here are my specs:

    iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009)
    3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB 1067mHz DDR3 RAM (2 x 2GB sticks)
    ATI Radeon HD 4670 256mb

    It can (surprisingly) still run El Capitan quite smoothly. Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 1.27.50 PM.png
    What do you guys think?

    Anywhere from P20k to P25k, according to current market values.

    Another question though: is that price estimate including the mouse and keyboard?

    What? Of course it does! Are you seriously thinking of selling them separately?

    No one will buy your iMac without them. If sold separately, it'll be around P18K to P20k for your iMac, P800 to P1K for the keyboard, and P500 to P600 for the mouse. You'll get much less.

    Based on my personal experience... Selling any Apple product (except for the iPhone) is really hard...

    You can start pricing it at 20-25 as mentioned above, then you can lower the price slowly until someone makes an offer.

    The only reason I'm thinking of selling them separately is because I got this iMac paired with a white Pro Mouse and a G4 Apple keyboard. Thinking if I should buy an apple keyboard and apple mouse first before packaging and selling.
