iPhones are not the only ones folks can trade-in to cut the cost on the latest model. Old MacBooks could follow the same route and the best time to do so maybe now.


With word that the MacBook Pro 2016 could be out either this September or by the Fall, consumers who plan to get the latest model will most likely be wary of cost.

One thing about Macs is that their resale price is normally competitive. They don’t depreciate that much meaning the cost to cover with the upcoming MacBook should be lower.

Some may try to sell off their old MacBooks to folks who have been dying to get one or consider the Cult of Mac Buyback program. They buy back old devices for cash, even the ones who are five years old.

The price of trading those old MacBooks will of course vary. A lot will depend on the age and condition of the device. For those who are not sure, you can try and make a preliminary assessment here to find out how much you may possibly get.

From there, you can head on over to the Cult of Mac buyback page and see how much you can get when you trade-in your old Macbook. Bear in mind that even if you are not planning to by the MacBook Pro 2016, this is a great way to turn garbage into gold.

Is it worth the trouble?

As mentioned earlier, the MacBook Pro 2016 is imminently coming out this year. The date may be a bit off but it will debut.

Given that it will be equipped with a Skylake processor (not Kaby Lake due to scheduling issues), a thinner body, Touch ID and an OLED touch panel (in lieu of function keys), is it worth the investment?

It is the latest MacBook one can get and expectedly souped up. With new features and powerful possibilities, many will likely take up Apple on the offer – especially with the odd state of other laptops like the MacBook Air.
